Customer Service Call Center (Former Employee), clackamas, oregon – April 21, 2013
I would come in at 5am in the morning, and the first thing I would do is to check my email to see if there were any lost shipments that would need my specific attention first before I started working on my daily spreadsheet for specific indvisiual customers. All of my morning reports had to be done by eight in the morning before i started my basic call – more... center duties. Once i'm done with my email if nothing needs my urgent attention I began checking on tracking of shipments for specific customers to give them a update on a specific excel spreadsheet. I would call each terminal check for updates status and appointments that should be scheduled, once all of this is done, i would email my reports off to specified clients. When i'm done with all of the reports its usually 7:45am at that point i would log into the call centers phone system to accept all calls for pickups, account status updates. If it's a slow day i would manage the company email request station where I would answer emails from customers that have went on the website looking for information. I would handle around 100-200 calls a day. – less
Hi-Lo Driver (Former Employee), Holland, MI – February 11, 2013
I learned logistic skills and how to operate a hi-lo. A lot of my coworkers were of a higher age but they were friendly and they were always willing to help me out. The hardest part of the job were the hours that I had to work because I had to leave for work in the middle of the day and I was at work all night. The most enjoyable part of the job was – more... that I got paid every week and I had weekends off. – less
