Assisting customers (Former Employee) – Pasadena Ca – October 16, 2013
This was a temporary position that lasted for some years and they were wonderful. I assisted customer with bills taking as many as 150-200 calls a day. The people I worked with were easy to get along with and the hardest part was when we would get threats because customer electric would get turned off and they would come in and threaten to hurt management but we worked about 100 feet from the police department so we always felt safe.
Very professional yet friendly workplace. Dedicated employees.
