Telephone Operators

Work Environment

The telephone industry operates around the clock, giving the public 24-hour daily service. Operators may, therefore, be required to work evening hours, night shifts, and on Sundays and holidays. Some operators are asked to work split shifts to cover periods of heavy calling. Telephone company operators generally work between 32 and 38 hours per week.
