"Sutherland feels like home to me. The people here have an energy you can’t find anywhere else – it’s so inspiring and contagious. My wife came to one of our recognition dinners and she was so moved by the way we recognize our employees. I’m proud to say we truly do appreciate how hard they work every day, and we go out of our way to celebrate their accomplishments. Our teams come up with creative, amazing solutions. Our company gives people a chance at incredible careers. I love that I get to help people realize their goals."

Juan Soto

"The outcome-oriented environment at Sutherland has really allowed me to focus on doing my best work and engage with truly innovative projects. I get to work with professionals at the top of their field, clients leading their markets, and technology at the cutting edge."

Ben Little

"I started at Sutherland in 2008 working for one of the client programs in Rochester before taking some time off to finish my graduate degree. Regardless of where you start, Sutherland offers the opportunity to advance your career through hard work and dedication. After only three years I now manage my own team, and have the ability to drive positive results for the company. I love working at Sutherland because of the people I work with, and the exceptional ability to gain experience and apply myself to difficult tasks almost every day."

Douglas M. Sumner

Being part of a global organization provides the opportunity to work with a range of professionals across various cultures. It doesn’t matter what time zone we are in, we find a way to collaborate and get things done. Sutherland not only supports diversity but a healthy work-life balance as well. Even with a pile of work on my desk, Sutherland allows me to be a mother and wife first. That support is invaluable to me and my family."

Jaziel D. De Los Reyes

"I look up to a number of my managers who have helped to train, educate, and encourage me. I’ve been inspired by their accomplishments and success. I try to model my efforts after them to reach my own goals."

Edward Stibick

"I am energized by the great people I work with and our cohesive group. They have a great sense of humor and make our work environment fun. Another great part of my job is speaking to customers from all over the world and helping them solve their problem."

Rami Sayyah

"My career at Sutherland has had a few ups and downs, but that path has been a very rewarding experience of discovery. I’m proud to now have the role of team manager so I can encourage and lead my own team to success."

    I have been working at Sutherland Global Services full-time


    Professional company, good hiring practices, Sutherland themselves is a wonderful company, but the experience you have working for them will depend on the program you pick and how hasty that client is in selecting management/what that program's individual goals are.


    They don't seem to care if they failed to communicate new hire insurance enrollment to you, even when you politely and urgently hound them about health insurance being necessary to you performing your basic job functions. HR department needs some staffing.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to treat your employees like machines (and most call center environments do), make sure they are well-oiled machines. Don't forget their humanity.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sutherland Global Services.


    I was contacted by a recruiter via indeed who emailed me the position for Personal Lines Insurance Agent. I responded back to the email and received a call from the recruiter. The phone interview was very easy. The recruiter went over my background. I didn't have a lot of experience at all in sales. The position required you to get your Personal Lines state license. This project was a permanent position servicing Nationwide customers and potential customers. The very next day I had in-person interview. Very formal. Did role-playing (sales). That went well and immediately I was offered the position and pay rate. I was then given a full week to study and take the state exam which you had to pass contingent on employment.

    Interview Questions


    No negotiating. $15 hourly without a license. If you had your license they would pay more.
