Well, I will say this about it; it's a great job for learning easily transferrable skills. I can take my time here almost anywhere. Be it a kitchen and dealing with time constraints, a sales location with dealing with sales, or even the military with expressing my eternal rage for policy changes and "customers". Overall, I don't regret it. In fact quite the contrary. It was time well spent. I'm glad I did it, just not happy while I'm ...

So. The day has come that I have only a week left of this call center BS and I could be none the merrier. No more IR, no more Sales, no more Handle Time, no more Transfers, NCP, Scripting... I'm not gonna lie, I feel like a free man. I can say what I want (within reason) on the phone. TL;DR: FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(In other words, every customer) Believes you or other people work magic. Be it with pooping a phone out of your bum that is awesome, has no contract, is for normal customers too-much-to-pay-for-but-she-should-automagica lly-get-for-free. The other side of this is the customer that believes you're not performing all the magic you really should be able to. You know, his brother was making calls just fine in a desert, but his non-roamable phone has no nearby towers *in a desert*. Oh, and ...

Blackberry 8350i. I can't believe noone from sprint/nextel hasn't posted this phone yet. It is the most disturbed phone I have ever had the misfortune of activating. Or troubleshooting. Or seeing. I mean, what kind of phone recommends a factory default reset as *normal* troubleshooting steps!?

As far as my site's policy, if something is notated we must do our best to honor it. For example; if a customer was promised an adjustment for the full $75 for the data overages, we must honor that notation. Otherwise, if it's not noted, we cannot break the policy. Notations act, again at least in our site, as a way around certain restrictions. Just because something is doable doesn't mean we should do it, unless there is some ...

Zomg. Do customers really get hung up on all that often or are they just stupid? I've gotten about 8 calls today saying they previous agent hung up on them. Then again, I also had a customer say *I* hung up on him. :|

Don't tell customers we in customer service will waive the activation fee. We won't. It's now against policy. Don't offer it unless you want the customer back at your store complaining because the person over the phone won't give an $18/$36 credit. Fyi: we could at one time, yes, at our discretion, waive activation fees. Now we won't. Just don't do it. /endrant

It's... frustrating getting RS and other stores calling in for help. In care, we *can't* take their calls. They don't believe us... That's what they have National Sales Support for. Assistance with anything they can't do. It's literally in my job description to turn them away. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Fantastic! Would you say that by answering this question I have successfully resolved the reason for *your* call today? Great. Just to let you know, here in the next couple days you may receive a survey on our performance during this thread and I'd appreciate it if you'd take the time to let them know we did resolve the reason for your call. Thanks, and have a great day!

Radioshack called in wanting me to "reset" security information on an account. Apparently the customer can't access sprint.com and needs to for whatever. So, I happily advised the Radioshack agent to refer the customer to a sprint corporate store, as without pin or favorite hobby, I can't make any changes or authenticate on the account. "So you want me to send a customer away and possibly lose a sale? Yeah, that's not gonna happen. Thanks, but I'll find someone ...

Yep, they're correct. And there are no Sprint devices that have sim cards, only Nextel. I think it's like $35 to order, though.

If I had today off, I'd take a hike. No seriously. :O Alternatively, I'd probably play around on my netbook for a bit.

The customer called in with a laundry list... The first 20 minutes was her explaining to me about this stalker of hers, and how it relates in great detail to her phone bill. Then ptn change. 50 minutes long... :| Still not as bad as having to activate/program a Palm Pre, then ptn change, then re-program earlier. Customers...

So, you guys. Today I've found my second major IT risk at work. Basically, a way for getting through to virtually any website we want. Essentially, the firewall is down. Crazy stuff. Yeah... My question is what IT risks have you guys found? My second question is how have you handled talking to IT about these risks?
