    It is easy to get hired if you have Customer Service experience and call center experience especially.

    Pros

    there was plenty of work, easy to get a full time job, coworkers were great at helping each other with questions

    Cons

    low wages, there was a lot to learn and do and the pay was no where near where it should have been for what was required

    Advice to Management

    pay people what they are worth, and try to retain people, as there was a reputation in the town I worked in that this company had a revolving door

    Company has diverse set of clients with locations around the US and the world

    Pros

    The office culture was enjoyable on a lower employee level; however on a management level it was tense

    Promotions from within were minimal and the compensation was not up to industry standards.
