I acquired various useful skills. A typical day at work is always busy and productive. The management is always willing to assist you whenever help is needed. The customers are friendly and always satisfied with the service. The workplace staff are very kind and helpful. They work well together as a team. The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer leaves the store happy.

It is a roller coaster ride and needs people with experience, ability, Planning, leadership skills and strength to make and maintain hard and good decision making for the benefit of the company.

Hardest part is having to suspend or discipline an employee


The most enjoyable part is the team building programs
Pros
Excitement
Cons
Limited staff

Transferring calls to an extension that is not answered and they keep coming back. The hardest part is cutting important call by mistake. Enjoyable part when the filing is up to date and the auditors are happy.
Pros
Motivational
Cons
Incentives are also motivational
