Call Centre to Soldier

Discussion in 'Jobs (Discussion)' started by nottotouchtheearth, Oct 19, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just posting this thread to start a discussion about how shocking the life of a call centre agent is. I work in a call centre at moment waiting patiently for my phase 1 training to start in January, god im so F**ing bored.

    Im sick of having to solve/not solve queries from a bunch of idiots who confuse service with being civil

    Sick of being told off by some by spotty kid on how to answer a telephone.

    Sick of all the call centre spleel words such as empathy, sympathy, assertiveness etc . .

    Sick of saying the same crap every minute of every day

    Anyone else been in the same boat.............
  2. Bore off.......
  3. It's a job isn't it! Stop feckin' moaning and either get on with it or change your situation 8O
  4. And you think Army life is any different...

    Bored of being f@cked from piller to post.

    Bored of being told to hurry up only to spend hours sitting around once you get there.

    Bored of endless drill because one of your oppo's is crap at it whilst the rest of you are ok.

    Bored of being marched up to the top of the hill and mached back down again by some Rupert with 6 weeks service under his belt.

    Bored of endless hours sat around on your arse waiting for something to happen...

    But then again, it not all bad ;)
