Cindy has over 20 years of experience conducting telephone surveys. It is the tonality of the phone interviewer's voice and the first few spoken words that determine whether the respondent will stay on the line to complete the survey. "That", says Cindy, "is what separates the amateurs from the professionals. It's all about projecting a warm, friendly and courteous image". Cindy's attention to detail and experience working with tricky skip patterns makes her uniquely qualified as Comiskey's Phone Room Supervisor.
