Bad Receptionists: Trick or Treat?

Posted in Holidays and tagged

Halloween is upon us, and you know what that means – masterfully carved pumpkins, pillow cases filled with sugary loot, creepy costumes, the night of the living dead, and the day of…the horrible receptionist. What’s more terrifying than not having a live person answering your phone when you need one? Having an un-dead receptionist who may murder you.

Hilariously depicted, manning your front desk, and sure to create a spooktacular experience on every call… SAS presents, “Bad Receptionists: Trick or Treat?”
