Expectations is that you will fill in a 16hr day.
Very pedantic.

Blame-storming.


Nothing really to tell except that my 7 months at Imperial was a bad period and that together with the switch-over to SAP.

A Customer Relations Specialist with over 10 year experience in a call center setting including customer care. Familiar with major customer conflict resolution and possess a positive attitude.

I am a good listener and have great communication and inter-personal skills. I am very committed to my work and can work independently and in a group to ensure tasks are completed timorously

A typical day at work, we have just been informed that the Company is closing down. Nothing to say as I have worked here for 14 Years and was hoping to reach retirement age. A corporate company should provide peace of mind.

Nothing bad can be said, everything I know was learned at this Company, how to manage people, operations etc.
It is in the tough times that you learn the most especially how to operate under pressure and in sometimes difficult conditions. it is a big Company with unlimited recourses. We strive for Unity amongst employees and we always strive to be the best.
