Boring Switchboard Operator
Switchboard Operator/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Lexington, SC – February 27, 2018
A typical day was nothing but answering a 10 line switchboard, transferring calls to correct persons, who never answered, making the call return back to me to get yelled at by the caller, demanding that I find them and get them to pick up their phone, all while having to answer other calls and put them on hold, going back in the order to transfer their calls, I got no breaks like the other departments, only to go to the bathroom, which I had to beg someone every time. The best part of the day was my hour lunch, I always left the office, and 5:00 when I got to leave for the day. I also had to screen visitors, no one ever wanted to see them, I felt like I had to police the place. I was not paid enough for that. NEVER got a raise in 2 1/2 years!!!
Sitting all day, small work area, closed in by glass.
Going to lunch, leaving for the day
no breaks, chained to my chair, beg for bathroom breaks
