Receptionist/Switchboard Operator (Former Employee), Kansas City, MO – August 22, 2014
With this position we made calls to individuals to see if they would like to donate to the Bob Dole campaign. The hardest part of the job was that we couldn't hang up with a caller until they told us no at least three times, by this point the callers were very irate.
