Customer Support Representative | Lake Mary, FL | Feb 9, 2020
Demanding and psychologically draining
This job is relatively soul crushing, dealing with angry customers who complain about everything, and hold you personally responsible for the company's faults. When it gets busy, management expects you to hold on and grind through the day, and is slow in providing employee resources necessary to alleviate stress. If you want to attempt call center life, make sure you're strong of mind don't let people get to you easily.

Senior Manager | Seneca, SC | Mar 7, 2019
Business is going on the tank
CEO is driving the company in the ditch. Only focused on profits. Huge layoffs in Nuckesr putting the plants at risk. All the older employees being driven out because their benefits cost more.
ProsIt’s s job. High pay for the area.
ConsNo life outside of a duke. No job security.

Pleasant place to work
I am here as a contractor and I am truky sad to leave. Duke has a great work environment. They are very flexible and they do not micro manage which is one of the best perks. I highly recommend Duke Energy as a work place.

What advice would you give the CEO of Duke Energy about how to improve it?
Asked Aug 29, 2018
None. Enjoyed working for this company.
Answered Jan 1, 2020
Hire a better client manager in Montgomery AL, HIS TRAINING methods are intimidating and will continue to cause the turn over rate to be high at the call centers. I left primarily because the environment wasn't professional from the client manager all the way down to the hourly employees. It is my opinion that the company needs to look into what is going on in Alabama.
