"I enjoy helping the customers that call in from around the world. I did have to learn that a customer calls in upset because they are frustrated, not because they are mad with me. As long as I can take away the frustration, and help them understand, I have done my job and the consumer can enjoy their product."

Help Desk Specialist at Inserso
in San Antonio, TX

"I love solving the customer's issues and getting them back to work ASAP. Great feeling to help someone. What I hate is that once I get comfortable with the company's software/systems I feel like most companies out there just simply stop at that. I like to be challenged and given more work to do."

Help Desk Specialist at Carilion Clinic
in Roanoke, VA

"I love helping people that are having issues with their computer, phone, or printers. I'm confident knowing that I can fix it and will do my best and knowing that I fixed the issue and now the client can do their job. The dislike I have on my current position is that I am on the phone all day and do not get to interact with the clients. I sit in a little cubicle and talk on the phone for 8 hours a day while creating tickets to send to someone else to fix it."
