Make a difference, one call at a time
CBX Telephone Operator (Former Employee) – New Albany, IN – April 27, 2017
The job as switchboard operator is stressful only because the operator is in charge during emergencies such as fire, various alerts and alarms, and weather emergencies. Handling those situations while continuing to answer the phones gets difficult at times. Working 12-hour shifts alone (nights and weekends) is either boring or stressful.
Good cafeteria food at discount prices, parking available, extra hours offered if wanted.
Operators don't get "breaks, lunches." It's an eat-at-your-desk situation.
