I enjoy everything, literally.
It is challanging because it can be problem rectifying before passing the call on.
Yes, you can advance. I began doing mail, FedX,UPS, faxing, interaction with many of our sales reps.
Just the fast paced phones & people contact made everyday interesting. I enjoyed helping to build the business, as well.
My company downsized and several hundred employees were let go. I ran the second shift office crew, as well as the switchboard, and they closed it down.
I am returning to Brownwood June 3rd and will be seeking stable employment. If there are any opportunities, I would appreciate being made aware of them, and have a resume upon request.
Thank you for your reply.

I loved working as a switchboard operator. You are the voice of the company. You are the first voice that the person on the other end of the telephone hear. You have a smile with your voice, which makes a very warm introduction,
