What is it like working as a Help Desk Technician?

Help Desk Technician in Manchester:
"Technical Helpdesk."
Pros: The people are great and the amount of skills that you learn to take onto the next job are massive.
Cons: Very stressful when you have a lot of customers calling you. Also it is stressful when you have customers that aren't technically minded. Finally, if you are not trained correctly you wonder what is going on half of the time which isn't great.
