I worked at Stream Global Services full-time (less than an year)Pros
Easy entry. Need a job paying $12/hr? Just submit an application and they will call.
Show up and you're okay.
Last 6 months you can get moved around. If you're a bit ambitious it can be as little as 4 - 6 weeks.
After 90 days you're considered a full "Dell" Prosupport Agent and can act in the role as one for everything.
Can get off work easily, everyone hates it so they don't really pressure you to stay or guilt trip you in.Cons
Low pay for work performed - Dell.
*REAL* Dell Agents start at $15/hr for L1 - Prosupport is L2 which in TS and TX campus pay is minimum at $18/hr.
Paychecks are handed out on Monday.
Network Downtime is HUGE. Annoying, can't do any "work" - if the network goes down when you're on the phone - it's not fun to have to tell a client/customer to call back or that you would call them back. It is not on Dell's end - it is on Stream/Convergys end. 95% up time usually - horrible.
**Micromanaging by Moderators. ** Moderators are entry level management, literally middle - middle manager. Their main role is to make sure people (Internal Agents) don't commit fraud over providing service to the customer, then cost reduction, then agent education.
They try to force a "25" minute average time, if you go over they'll pester you every few minutes asking what's up. This is because they bill Dell .80 cents a minute, which is capped at 25 minutes - after that Stream/Convergys takes the bill. For the other metrics, they also receive quarter bonuses (not you, the employee, the employer - the company - stream/convergys) if they meet or excel in other metrics - customer satisfaction (CSAT), RDR - Return Dispatch Rate / if the issue was properly diagnosed, or not, - email bounce back, etc.
Horrible corporate "fun" days such as work in Pajamas (backfired horribly for the other call queues)
Generic environment. No one is happy to be there. Grilled cheese tax day and etc. I guess you can say HR tries, but it is a hollow gesture.
Smokers unite, if you smoke you hang out in the front and make friends w/ management easiest this way.
Managers/Team Leads/Moderators don't know your name unless you pop up on their watch list for poor customer reviews, poor customer service, not showing up, late or such- if you perform your metrics right they won't even say hello.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Don't hire people that don't know how to turn on a computer.
Make the interview quiz much more complex, having people in the training class that don't know troubleshooting 101 is a pain for the whole class.
Make checks available Friday, not Monday.
If this was a telecommute job, it wouldn't be as horrible.
It won't happen with this job though, PCI compliance and Cust privacy..Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
