Case Co (Former Employee) – SW Cornwall – 15 May 2017
Constantly being restructured - very unsettling. Management support hit & miss, can be very good or very poor. Colleagues are very supportive and a strong culture of mutual support amongst workers exists.
Customer Service Advisor/ Data Administrator (Current Employee) – Truro – 14 May 2017
In the call centre taking calls. The work can be dull, repetitive and mentally draining. Equally there are worse places to work. The staff are reasonably friendly and the hours are fixed which means you can plan evenings ect.
I worked as a lunch time supervisor when I was a student at Helston College. I spent my lunch times looking after year 7 to year 9's, a very difficult job I found. I enjoyed it however, helping youngsters in situations I had once found myself at school. So rewarding.
Terrible job due to having to deal with violent and abusive people Terrible Pay. Low wages considering how much work and responsibilities I had. Terrible Management. Never listened and Micro managed everything and treated their staff like children. Terrible Prospects. No real incentives to give you something to aim for. Terribly run department by people who hold the wrong values and don't appreciate their staff. Moral was lower than WHALE SH_T !!! I had it easier in the Military !!!
