Great Team Environment
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW2 April 2018
Working at American Express is a very demanding and yet rewarding place, working within your team and under your team leader has great advantages as you know that there is always someone around that can help you, however working from home is not something I would recommend in this job as it is very hard to be able to have they separations from work and home life, and there is no-one you can talk to if there is a difficult customer. you are on your own.
Pros
incentives
Cons
working from home support unit
