    Pros

    The best part of this position is that it gave me experience as a customer service representative while attending university. The schedule is pretty flexible and management is very supportive of newer employees.

    Cons

    Because you are the face of the technology support group, people tend to think that you should be able to solve all of their tech problems, when in reality there is little training. The pay is also only minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Have an IT professional in the contact centre during regular working hours in order to support the centre's representatives. There's not much else I can say, I really enjoyed my time spent here.

  3. Good times but easily replaced

    Pros

    The people you make and the skills you develop are amazing

    Cons

    As new hires get added on you can find yourself very easily replaced or forgotten amongst the sea of students.

    Advice to Management

    Try to put in a program that facilitates the constant leaving of student employees, any positive changes are often completely forgotten by the time a new person takes on the role. Makes it really hard ot move forward.
