    Pros

    Flexible shifts... That's the highlight of an otherwise terrible job. One or two good/friendly/knowledgable supervisors. Quite flexible/don't mind so much if you have to cancel or are sick (if you call in in person)... If you're productive you can usually get away with more than lazy employees.

    Cons

    Terrible atmosphere, equipment nearly all broken or repaired "expertly" with white tape. Training non-existent. Team leaders (touted as "there to help") mainly irritable and abrupt, act as if it's the end of the world if you ask a simple question, some of them have the management/people skills of a plank of wood (although there are a small handful of decent exceptions). Inexplicably studying/sudoku puzzles allowed whilst reading/checking cell phone gets a demerit. I've seen 80% of supervisors flout this rule and mess around on Facebook / actively ignore people with questions whilst scrolling on phone etc so also hypocritical. Respondents repeatedly called even after registering disinterest, leading to some lovely conversations(!!!).

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of 70% of supervisors, or at least make the rules apply to them too - make it less cliquey by actually offering some progression. Pay more!! Most other office job starting wages are at least 12$ p/h

    Interview

    Received a telephone call to schedule an interview with HR. During the interview, you're asked to read a script. That's pretty much it.

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation phase. All of the telephone interviewers are offered the same base salary.
