Table tennis table indeed. Rest room. Canteen. Good facilities. Library. Gym. Depending on your shift roster - some better that others. Learned a lot about myself and my capabilities. Enjoyed time with other members. Hardest part working difficult shifts or having difficult passengers. Incredible sunsets and sunrises - does that count? Great team of other operators.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 5 July 2017
BCC was a great call centre to work at. The CEO and management team believed in its purpose, and its staff, and ensured we had everything that we needed to succeed in a busy, sometimes thankless work environment.
BCC is the largest local government authority in Australia. There is a large need for compliance in land use matters. The compliance section is large with a varied range of job descriptions. Compliance and town planning are closely inter connected.
