    I worked at Alorica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The position is relatively easy: Empathize with the customer's situation while you solve his or her problem. Within 6 months, I was offered a team management position with less time flexibility and less base pay then a high-performing agent. I chose to stay as an agent because I was completing my college education and I needed the scheduling flexibility.

    If you understand that you are passing through and this position is temporary, then you'll love your job (not career).

    Cons

    Lack of clear process flow creates a steep learning curve during training. After a week of reading through terms and conditions, trainees continue learning by "doing". This is where most of the workforce attrition occurs because of trainees lack of preparation.

    After making team manager, it can take years to be promoted into an operations manager or site manager position.

    Pay is relatively low, but above average when compared with other call centers in the area.

    The company makes money based on the agent taking calls efficiently as possible and meeting the SLA for all LoB's supported by the call center. Dont expect special treatment when volumn is high. It doesn't make sense from a business perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Convey tactical level priorities to front line employees. They will understand that it is a business if you treat them like adults.

    Pros

    The 40 hours a week, OT and health benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is less than normal call center.
    The miro manager each call and call you out even ifr u cant change the way ur voice sounds and think u sound angry.
    TL and mangers don't do much to help you out. They say they will help and a week later get no response.
    7-15 year old equipment that is very slow and can't handle multitasking at all.
    Can't miss more than 1 day a month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get non lazy staff. Raise the pay and offer better benefits, Fix the attendance adherence. Don't hire just anyone.

    Pros

    Scheduled hours, I don't have any other pros this job sucks

    Cons

    management, constant change of policies with last minute notice to reps, does not excuses doctor visits or any days taking off with an excuse

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the management you hire to lead teams. My manager was childish, the only time we had meetings were to tellnus briefly about our stats. After that her and other coworkers would discuss personal things. Things that aren't important in a work environment,

    I have been working at Alorica full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Unlimited over time. Great for someone who needs a paycheck. Super easy to start working here.

    Cons

    My boyfriend and I have been working here for just over two months and now, my boyfriend rarely eats, throws up at work, is losing hair and is constantly in a depressed state. I have between constantly sick, and extremely depressed since starting work here. And why, you ask?

    Because of the constant pressure and stress caused by unhelpful management, and fighting tooth and nail to just be noticed by an A.D.. They play favorites.

    I would never recommend working here unless you have no choice, like us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better, and stop being so childish. That's why you have a high turn over rate. You provide no part time. Some of us want to go to school while working.

    I worked at Alorica full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you can sell and have an influential personality you could do well here. Great incentives. If you get on the Directv program you get the top of the line package for free. Overtime is very plentiful.

    Cons

    You get promoted if you can sell and hound others to sell. Team leaders are puppets for high level managers to create a sweatshop environment. If you want to be reminded that you can quit or be fired at any time every single day and that doesn't bother you or affect your morale...you'll fit right in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find another philosophy besides threatening employees. Money does motivate...but find better ways to retain quality employees.
