Customer Service Representative

June - August 2019 • New Haven, CT

What I liked

How kind my coworkers and managers were to me and how there wasn't any drama that I heard about. If there was drama it was news about how customers were acting towards a worker, or if someone got sick, etc.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to take more of my breaks on time. A lot of co-workers took longer breaks then they should have which ruined my time for taking a break and kept me on the floor longer than I needed to be.

Advice

The customer isn't always right. It's okay to know your policies and standards taught to you through training to ask for help from a manager when needed when a customer gets out of line or if you feel like you need an immediate break from how the customers have been treating you!

March - November 2019 • Conshohocken, PA

What I liked

Coworkers were awesome. Plus, my workspace always smelled like warm cinnamon rolls, so I consider that a bonus.

What I wish was different

Technology was not awesome, made the job way more difficult than it needed to be.

Advice

Be prepared for some intense customer service. Basic Swedish skills will help too

What I liked

Very good employee benefits, everyone is very friendly and welcoming, and the location made for a short commute

What I wish was different

Better communication with management

Because this was a seasonal position, I would recommend continuing your job search as there is no guarantee of being offered a job to stay or not
