months ends are always busy being a till operator u must be very fast. its like you are 5 in one you work everywhere customer service must be excellent. understand customers able to listen to understand to be able to solve the problems acquire. learned that u treat the customers like their your family and you wont go wrong. know each department well for you not to waste time in finding things that customer wants. Problem solving must be very fast as u not the for one person, if u dont understand call the manager to assist.team work is very important without it u wont be able to achieve the goal of the day nor of the month. learn that going extra mile its very important not only for yourself but also for the company. having a difficult customer who doesn't want to understand the policy infrant of them. getting rewards( gift cards/ vouchers) for best customer service/ best selling of airtimes.

For the amount of work you do the salary is not enough compared to other companies the workload gets more but there is no difference in your salary each month
