Good Place to advance Customer Service skills
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 14 March 2018
I worked at The Time Shop / Time Central quite some time ago but never got around to review the company. It's a nice place to start off as a student/new immigrant. The work at Hudsons Bay teaches you quickly on how to work with customers. Considering The Bay has pretty high standards on Customer Service- you learn patience and how to deal with difficult customers, tho this maybe difficult and frustrating at times- it's a very valuable skill to have for any job and field.
The Head Office gives opportunity for advancement (at least at the time) and soon I was promoted to Account Manager/ Office Manager- Here the volume of work is larger and the pace is much faster - but I learned quite a lot, developed organizational and multitasking skills as well as got the opportunity to work with high end companies and polish my formal English. All in all - exciting work with jewellery, watches, Designer companies and customers with good potential. Management is young but good, however salary was very poor, and for the amount of work and responsibility I was way severely underpaid. Eventually was fished to another company for a larger salary.
