How stressful is it to work in a call center? It seems to me that the supervisors would be the micromanaging sort

Working in a call center has been the most exhausting, tiring and stressful job of my life. In fact, my supervisor was a pain in the neck and I only put up with it for 4 months.

I can attest to this, burnout comes quick in this role

Very much so, and you're right on the money about the supervisors. Best of luck if you decide to work at a call center

I tried it for about a month and I would never ever recommend it to anyone.

The hardest thing about it is that you have to be chipper and and cheerful all the time, and if you don't have the type of personality that can let things roll off your back it is probably not the right job for you. I tried it for a while but I couldn't handle it, I found that it was a lot higher pressure than anybody told me.

Also, when I ask my boss what they’d like to see, I don’t ever get a clear answer. (Cont’d in comments)
