"Don’t bother"14 Oct 2020

Former Employee - Customer Service Representative

I worked at first direct full-time for more than a year

Pros

Moneys decent after a year or two working there

Cons

Two faced office environment, feels like slave labour to take calls constant, if your a minute over your break or go to the toilet your will get pulled up

Advice to Management

Relax, your nothing outside of work
