Fast paced, multi-task, able to think on your own feet
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 2 November 2016
During the busy season, phone just won't stop ringing and your day will go by super fast, but in the slow season you can take long vacations and refuel/relax throughout the day.
I've learned how to work under stress, being able to work efficiently, proactively, able to multi-task and pay attention to small details. It's a great learning experience, if you can survive there through the busy winter, you can pretty much take the experience and work in any office job.
Co-workers are super friendly, chatty, caring. If you ever need help you can just shout out your question and someone beside you will always jump in to help and assist you through the challenge.
The hardest part is being able to think on your own feet, if you can't multi-task or do 10 different things at once or have the ability to prioritize things, don't try to go for this department or this job. If you are up for the challenge and is smart then this is definitely the place to go. Great benefits, average salary, can take long vacations in the low season (summer time), and fun co-workers to joke around and hang out after work!
Good benefits, caring co-workers, friendly clients, great discount on apparel
Salary might be low, will need to work OT and under stress
