Current Employee - Support Advisor

I have been working at Shopify full-time for less than a year

Pros

-Pay is great for a job right out of school! 42,500/year -Benefits are great! -Lifestyle spending account -They send you all the equipment you need! (laptop, mouse, monitor, keyboard, etc) -4-5... weeks of paid training. -They truly care about their employees and their customers/merchants

Cons

-talking with merchants on the phone can be very stressful. Especially when they ask you for business advice and they expect an answer right away, but their question involves you to do some research.... It is easier to offer business advice in an email because then I have time to research and form a proper answer for the merchant.
