Customer Service Representative (CSR) in Westerville:
"Future CSR's."
Pros: How fast the day goes. Between calls and side projects, the only real down time is your scheduled breaks and lunch. Also, no weekends or Holidays...EVER! As a former retail employee, M-F regular hours are wonderful. Diversity in the workplace, we have all ages from 23 yr olds to a 68 who just retired. Men, women, gay, international, everything...and we're all a team. Lastly, internal hiring...5+ promotions within a year.
Cons: Scheduled breaks...due to the phone lines always needing coverage...they have to schedule everyones breaks. You have a call that runs 5 mins over your scheduled break time and you have to ask permission to go. Cliques that form....due to certain team sections, the natural playground/middle school drama forms.
