For those curious i applied for a technical contact centre role.
Found out it was a specific company that has a high staff churn rate and knew people who used to work there that didnt enjoy it.
They are NZ based but serve Australia. May have been related to Ihug back in the day.


Their churn rate is indeed pretty impressive.. would be so suited for you tim!


Ayy, What you implying there!!

I worked at Vodafone for almost 2 years and i have been at a car dealership ever since!


That's a difference. From what you post here working in the Auto Industry seems well suited and would be doing what you love.


Its a passion for me and im good at what i do. But in reality its not a career for me.
I can definitely go further in IT. In the telco sector i feel at home.
Even till this day i regret leaving Vodafone.



I turned my hobby into a career (IT) I often regret not doing that with my inherited passion motor vehicles.

gregmcc: I agree Tim, what's wrong with been open and honest right off the bat.


And who wants to work for a company that isn't honest and trustworthy?

gcorgnet: No worries.

BTW, what type of jobs are you looking for? I know of some openings in Dev, QA and Product Management.

Cheers


Im looking for something entry level. I have 4-5 years experience in service and networking/computing.

gregmcc:
Another thing that I've seen is advertising a job in a particular area, lets say Auckland, but the job is actually in Christchurch, if I was looking for a job in Christchurch that's the search region I would set.


Auckland is quite a large area.
A place i applied for was "based" in the CBD but turns out id be working down penrose..
So much for Central easily accessible location.

For those curious i applied for a technical contact centre role.

You looked at 2 Degrees, they have data specialist roles which often come up.
