    my country is an agent for UPS. i have asked my region [SG] to give me a manuel where the job description of CSTC are given but they did not come back with an answer. may be they were too busy or did not want to respond as they do not operate drectly and it is upto the local managment to decide.
    can anyone provide me with the job descriptions of CSTC/ CSC so that i may have some guideline to go against management since i feel they are making us do things that is not our area i.e making revised invoice for shipments which are bering held at different destination countries, filing claims, etc...
    pls advise

    it is true but at least if i have some thing to go on i can show the management there are things which CS should do and thing that shouldn't. we get payed less the competitors but one thing is for sure the management wouldn't fire you. they would corner you so that you leave. and jobs here is very very hard to get if u don't have a strong reference.
    anyway that's whole new area. could you give or know anyone that might help me?

    Give me some time to think. I think looking at your country you have bigger problems. Move to USA!

    Are you an outsourced phone center (much like our 800#)? Are you working as a customs broker for UPS international shipments? Need more info....

    no we are not out sourced phone center. we are agent country and have to report to region {SG]
    most recently we took over UPS SCS as of jan2010. UPS SCS were direct [JV country] they weren't doing well so region turned them over to us for operations.

    Sounds like you are performing sililar functions as they do in L-ville Kentucky.Anybody out there familiar with our brokerage /CSTC in Lville. I worked in the CSTC in No Calif in 1988 and it was a little different than--and now is outsouced to another company in Tampa and SLC--------------------sounds like they are creating the position in B-desh as it goes?

    i heard we used to have a manual (in 1988 when we were sub agent and were reporting to India) for every dept job description but then country manager tore the book and ever since no one don't know what exactly their job description is. since we do not have anything called union in our country you are correct by "additional duties- work as directed" but i want to get out of the box. i know in my country it's VERY DIFFICULT TO GET A JOB WITHOUT REFERENCE but i just want the management to know what our counterparts are doing NOW. as for HR i gave them a job description based on what i was doing they don't have any info. most recently my boss described my job as "providing solution for customer". we are now seeing that most european countries are requiring invoice with realistic values added version now is we are to provide revised invoice. didn't have much to argue as i didn't know what other countries CSTC/CSC were doing.

    i am not aware that lville had a CSTC. the reason i say that is we send all mails to projectc and have no clue to where they are located. i have spoken with lville hub there are some EXCELLENT ppl there they had helped me in numerous case with issues beyond their job description[that is what i felt] and then there are some who only speaks what they see in the system. i want to attached the job description i made but don't know how to do it here.

    Sounds more like what our 800# used to be like. Before we got the mainframe system and well before PCIS. Fortunately, for our friend in Bangladesh, She/he doesn't have to deal with bitchy OMSes like me, who believe that the 800# has nothing better to do than call me and annoy the hell out of me when I have a ton of other things to be doing. Unfortunately, it appears that because there isn't a breakdown for each individualised department (CSC, Preferred Group, Extra Preferred Group (the actual name escapes me) and a whole litany of other groups, that your job title is "Catch All". Which in short means that you do everything. Hopefully, there will be a change in that soon and you'll have a lighter work load to keep up with, and it sounds like you have a constant stream into your inbox. Good luck!

    iam with UPS SP. the customers are our PP clients who thinks they have bought us since they are using our service. actually DHL had spoiled them. they had provided the shippers here with so much service [provide invoice, country of origin, stamp/mutilate sample if required, pick up FC shipments without verifying with acct holder, provides printed awb 100-200pcs etc]
    what i need to know what the out source call centers are doing as a job description of CSC.
