Service à la clientèle (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 16 September 2017
I worked at a customer service counter where I would serve people with many different problems, complains and return issues. I have learned how to better deal with people and help them find solutions while giving them great service. The management was fair but inconsistent. The people at work were wonderful. The hardest part of the job was to keeping the energy high considering the flow of clients. The most enjoyable part was being able to serve people from all over the world, learn about better communication and the salary and benefits that come with working at Ikea.
