"How I find my job as reception."
Pros: My colleague's , doing otp's filling emails everything I do I love it.
Cons: I don't like it when the director starts yelling screaming and being rude to me or other staff. The daily amount of phone calls are a bid annoying and the fact that I don't have a lunch time for an half an hour or an hour at least is the the worst. I can just eat quickly and then back to work. I take a few smoking breaks per day and still while I take my smoking break I do my work as well like when the phones ring I drop my cigarette outside get in and answer the phone some days while I am still busy eating I also still answer the phone some days I don't even eat during the day. The thing that makes me most unhappy , irritate and upset mad and stressed out is when I ask something and it is not being done or I have to struggle and wait for days sometimes weeks to receive what I have asked. Another thing is when I need to do and fill an otp I need to fill in all the correct details of the client, vehicle and the amount + I need to work out the vat and if I ask for info and I don't get it.
