Europ Assistance Reviews


An eye opener

a typical day would include capturing around 180-200 ambulance claims a day that the. medical aid has to pay within a 48hr period. with that we have to deal with queries or complaints via telephone from the various service providers. it's a stressful working environment yet the fellow co workers make it enjoyable. I have a good relationship with my co workers as we finding new ways to make our work easier regardless of the circumstances we face. what I have learnt is that regardless of how much you know there's always room to learn and that one should always strive to progress on merit rather than favour. most importantly don't lose who you are and always hold on to your morals and values. the challenging aspects are management who don't communicate enough with employees and who dictate rather than encourage or motivate. another aspect is having to deliver great customer service with little staff.

Pros: understanding co workers
Cons: lack of communication between employees and management

Project Management Training at GIBS

A typical work day at work in my current role entails a lot of collaboration with other departments and across the group as a whole. The sharing of ideas and inclusion of all are vital in the seamless running of our operations. Your relationship with co-workers is very good as we've all realised that we need each other's specialised skills in order to reach or company and in some cases personal growth objectives. I have learnt just how strong I am as a communicator and the various crises I face on a daily basis have shown me this. What you enjoy most about my job is the opportunity to do what I love on a daily basis and the unpredictability of our industry keeps me on my toes. The most challenging aspects of the job are also the best parts of it. The unpredictability of the job make it difficult to forsee every eventuality, and the lack of speed in adapting to the new age also make my job challenging.

Pros: Plenty of training and studying opportunity
Cons: No opportunity for growth

Excellent learning curve and opportunity to gain work exeperience

A typical work day at my current company is a new and exciting experience every , because I get to learn how to work with different situations and scenarios , given that it is a emergency call centre for both road and home emergencies . My relationship with co-workers is good because we work well with one another and understand each other , we also try to help one another where we can . I have learned how to work under pressure , I have learned how to react in certain situations and scenarios , I have learned the importance of telephone ethics and most importantly I mostly enjoy the environment at work but I have worked in the customer services industry since 2015, started off in a face to face customer services and currently doing the telephonic customer services. Eager to learn different things and challenge myself . The most challenging aspects of my current job honestly speaking are the working hours , I have been working shifts for nearly 2 years now .

Customer Service

Customer Service world is one industry where you can take a lot of strain from because most clients want someone to blame, and you as an agent you are there to reassure the client that they will get the service they pay for. To be honest of what i have learned in this industry is that the customers is not always right but they have the right to the service they pay for and as an agent in the call center you need to make every client feel that they have your utmost attention and your willingness to help them. In an industry where you work with people team work is always essential good leadership is always needed and great team spirit.

Pros: there is not enough growth...
Cons: Long straining hours...
