Call Center Operator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – January 12, 2017
You gain clerical skills. I learned how to navigate different software on a desktop and how to use a multi-line telephone. It's a place where you deal with all kinds of people so you learn how to be patient with others.
Call Taker/Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 24, 2016
Management could have been more people friendly. There is no job security or benefits. It was very childish. The most enjoyable part was talking to different people over the phone. The least enjoyable was it was like high school. Management yells a lot.
Very busy and intense. I've learned to work at a fast-paced while remaining focused. I met very nice people. Some of the managers performed excellent in their rolls. However, sometimes, there was a lack of confidentiality and respect towards some employees. The hardest part of the job was the lack of communication between the nurses at the skilled nursing facilities. I learned a lot about the different medications that are out on the market for elderly patients.
Knowing that my job to key in patient's meds was saving someone's life.
The lack of respect from some of the RN's for their patients and employers.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – York, PA – March 12, 2015
Taking calls and receiving calls for customers in need of road service and/or to start up a membership, taking payments over the phone. Enjoyed the fast pace of the job and I enjoyed going to work everyday.

DISPATCHER (Current Employee) – Dartmouth, MA – November 21, 2013
My job is very rewarding and yet very stressful. It basically is sitting around for an emergency to happen and when it does you do whatever you can to help that person on the other line. You also see a different side of law enforcement and how stressful an officers job really is. The hardest part of the job is when you have a caller who found their husband/wife/son/daughter or parent dead. Trying to call them down as you are sending someone to help them.
Operator (Former Employee) – Hyattsville, Maryland – December 19, 2012
As soon as I arrived at work I logged in on the computer and started assisting customers with transportation.I learned how to input data into a computer and I also learned a lot about customer service.Management was cool. He used to allow us to have company parties and on holidays we were all allowed to bring in a dish for everyone to try. My co-workers were like family. I loved the atmosphere.The hardest part was not being able to get the cabs sent fast enough. The most enjoyable part was that it was a laid back place of work and the interaction with the customer was behind the phone. This place ran out of money and eventually went out of business but, if I could find another job like this one I'd be very content.
When I was working the Customer Service depatment/ Mgt.
Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Atlanta GA – May 1, 2012
It was an exicting experience that changed my life. Being on top of Customer Service is difficult because you have to satisfy the customers, even when you can't get them the prodouct or the service they wish to have. It is just basic communication and compromise. I never worked in a slow pace environment and I wouldn't have it any other way. It's not easy working with people on your team. I found how difficult it can be when every individual has there own personal probleml that affects them and from working to there full potential. At the end of the day I realize that I am human as well as every one on my team and that I have maintain proper and professional leadership, attitude, gestures, respect and language.
good memories and the friendship
being on call, not enough time for lunch break, not enough pay.
I loved working at the Fire dept., it was fun I learned how to properly perform cpr and I saw firsthand how the firefighters were trained.
Assistant secretary (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – April 19, 2012
A typical day at the Fire Dept. consisted of me sorting and distributing the mail, greet people, type memos and distrubute them. Assist the secretary, fire chief, and fire inspector. I filed ambulance reports, did light book keeping, answer a multi line telephone, and clean the front office. I learned how to properly perform cpr. The hardest part of the job was helping the fire inspector set up for the cpr classes. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with men and women who actually helped save lives.
