Pros: was a good job and good company to work for
Cons: had to work shifts in last few years which was difficult due to being a caregiver for parents.
Over the 42 years I started out working as a receptionist at BMO branch in Grimsby, ON. I also worked as a teller and customer service rep.
After 20 years in Grimsby, I moved to the Burlington Mortgage Centre where I processed transactions related to mortgages.
For the last 10 years I was a tax rep, processing manual tax bills for property tax payments, – more... servicing all of Canada except Quebec.
I keyed tax bills, balanced transactions for processing to municipalities for payment.
I also responded to customer service inquiries on-line, processing customer requests for maintaining tax accounts on a daily basis.
Management overall was great. Worked with some great managers.
I enjoyed working with my co-workers as a team member. We all worked together, helping each other out when our work was done in order to meet deadlines.
The hardest part of the job was to manage keying all tax payments in a timely, accurate and efficient manner in order to meet deadlines for payments due. On average I was able to key approximately 700-1000 bills per day, depending on how busy the phones were.
I enjoyed this job as it was a challenge every day and gave me a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. – less
