The Best Ways To Survive Working In A Customer Service Role

Do You Feel Safe In Your Job?

This might seem like such a broad question to ask, but do you truly feel safe in your job? Not safe as in your physical safety, but in other aspects as well. Do you feel mentally stable? Is your job secure? Do you feel happy coming into work each day?
