Ticket Agent for sub-contractor to SEPTA (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 21, 2015
I work at a local one man train station as aCustomer Service working for a sub-contractor to SEPTA working early hours from 5:45am to 11:45am. I am responsible for opening/closing the ticket office, selling SEPTA passes, tokens and tickets, assist new customers on how to read the schedules, times of travel for work to/from destination, assist with traveling beyond Philadelphia to outer counties, record and make daily deposits, keep track of inventory on a weekly basis, order tickets as needed, communicate with other co-workers to passing messages or regards to late trains. I have been doing this for over 15 years plus and I like meeting new people and assisting those who are not sure of traveling along the regional rail and other modes SEPTA provides. The hardest part is on days when the train is not running on time for the messages that come in over the pa is not always clear and you have to find out where the train is. As for my co-workers we either communicate by phone chain about issues or we run into each other at the bank as we are making our daily deposits. I see my supervisor about 3 times week as she picks up my envelope, drops off ticket orders and on Fridays when she delivers my paycheck.
Friendly atomsphere, meet different people, great work hours so you can work part time in the afternoon.
