    Current Employee - Customer Care Representative in Orchard Park, NY

    I have been working at United Stationers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Grading of the phone calls/emails are based on the customer experience and not hitting exact checklists to sound like a drone or computer when going over problems.

    Cons

    Training only prepares you how to use the systems and not the situations you'll encounter on the actual job. While it's stressful at first, my team helps ease this until your comfortable (which could last several months).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please upgrade you're computer network and systems. Development of the new single website for our customers and your employees to use for everything is still much slower than the one we use that was built over 7 years ago. Be a leader in technology and focus on improving the customer experience by upgrading your customer service programs we use.
