Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 September 2013
I was responsible in providing customer service to customers who wanted to either purchase tickets or answering questions and directing customers to available parking spots.
I learned how to handle transactions in a fast paced environment and be able to think on my feet in order to provide answers to customers.
My manager was a very relaxed individual who didn't like to stress his employees for no reason, we got along very well.
Me and all my co-workers became friends because we get to spend a lot of time with each other on the job and we got to know each other very well.
The hardest part of the job is when customers arrive late to the show and I had to sell tickets as fast as possible in order for them to be able to catch the show and not be late. Standing outside in the cold directing traffic was also one of the hardest parts of this position.
The most enjoyable part is the fact that once we get everyone into the shows, then we have couple hours break while the shows is going..we got to hang out as co-workers as well as learn something else during that free time.

A typical day at work, is listen the expectations for the shift. call as many donor, alumni and perspectives as possible.\ establish good relation with everybody. The people there in general is cool, 90% of the staff are students and is a great enviroment to work. the hardest part of the job is the schedule finishing at night after a long day studying is not easy. the most enjoyable part is for sure the rewards they give you and being able to talk with coworkers.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 April 2016
You want to make a difference? Your ideas won't be heard and your hard work will not be recognized. They say they encourage you to move around the organization but are not supportive. Internal politics. Unhealthy work environment. Manipulative and micro management. Most managers need formal management training or should not be in leadership roles. Pay is not worth the work!
