We have great management support. Thorough training in order to achieve the best results. Supportive and to the point where need be.
Co-workers are all hard workers and are all their to do their job. Ideally to make sure customers are walking away with the best customer experience and meeting KPI's by End of the day.
The hardest part of the job is trying to upsell or add on products to their solutions without being too pushy. However there are other way's around this.
Most enjoyable part of my job is definitely meeting customer needs, making sure they receive their full product solution. What makes it all worth it, is getting acknowledged for helping and taking the time to meet all needs and have them be so very appreciative and giving great reviews.
I did enjoy the aspects of working here. They taught me so much about management and the teach you so much and push you to better yourself, but what drove me away was that the pressure they put on you to bring customers in was a lot, you have to upsell so much and if you don't you get a sheet you have to sign saying you are not doing your job correctly.
I was assistant manager and I would recommend for people who want to be casual here but higher up management is crazy!
