attended to and monitored urgent enquiries and issues and ensure that they are brought to the relevant staff members attention was a typical day at work.
what I have learned is the opportunity to apply fundermentals learned in the class room to real world,working issues learned new objectives in the business world and the experience that came along and how it would look great on my resume.
management – more... came through when they conducted product knowledge training and were supportive in everything.
co-workers helped us to listen,respond and interact within a team and were very welcoming and kind.
the hardest part of the job was finding my feet in the beginning of the job and the fact that it was only the beginning.
the most enjoyable part was speaking to different people everyday and working with people who felt like family to me. – less

Pros: free health check-ups (wellness day)
Cons: stable working hours
I find my work interesting and fun .Working more with a computer seems to provide me with more skills and my fellow workers are fun to work with.The college management is well structured and they provide quality managerial function which suits all.The most challenging part is to be given a task and by an hour one should submmit the report and not given enough time to complete.The most enjoyable part is that you get appraissals for a job well done and when we close we have year end functions which improves the good employee relationship with co-workers.I must say that being under the auspacies of South West it encourages me to do more and become not only an employee but a valuable asset of the organisation.
