Great place to work. Everyone is very nice and helpful. Perfect job while still being a college student. Pay is also great for a student. Best part is being able to study while work is slow. Constantly in front of a computer so you can make the time pass by real quick. Get to interact with people from around the country and all walks of life. They throw a lot of office parties with great food. Every now and then get the chance to see the former President. Best job I have ever had!!
Customers can be very annoying and demanding at times. Have to answer phones and answer dumb questions all day. Questions are very repetitive and get old. At times you get used to it being slow and when it suddenly get busy that kinda sucks.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work!
