    I have been working at American Customer Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Management with an excellent IT staff. Everyone is willing to offer advice and assistance no matter the problem. Friendly laid back environment without the politics and games management will play in other companies. Just a great family feeling with management who is understanding and will listen to your concerns.

    Cons

    Too many slow stations in many of our calls centers, be prepare to spend a good deal of your time just waiting for a station to reboot.
    I personally feel that we have amazing IT staff that are not getting market value pay.
    You will be on a salary so overtime is out of the question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the morale in your office by offering your employees an incentive. A performance review with a pay rise or even a bonus in the holidays or even a holiday party would suffice. Employees should not feel like their in a cellphone contract and the only way to earn more is to leave or threaten to leave.

    Pros

    A handful of nice people you'll meet and become friends with.

    Cons

    What isn't terrible. Bad management, too many supervisors, none communicate properly. Agents are cranky, pay is low, higher up management is awful. One is a psycho, the other 2 are just dumb as a rock and all are completely and ironically unaware of their low morale problems cause they're too busy micromanaging everyone's move. People feel if they breathe wrong, they'll get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hand the company over to someone who can run a successful business.

    I worked at American Customer Care as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone treats you as an equal even as an intern and are always open to help each other with advice. Everyone is friendly and great to be around all day every day. Flexible with hours when traffic is involved, and the IT support team is helpful to everyone on the nation-wide network.

    Cons

    Company still uses Windows XP machines for their call centers, making the process of working on a stations much slower to work on and troubleshoot. Testing installations take hours because of slow performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company just needs to find a way to afford to push out newer machines to the call centers to avoid problems for all departments of the company.

    I worked at American Customer Care part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent wage compared to other entry level places around here. Not too demanding, if you tried to better yourself they would keep you. Got to move around to different projects sometimes.

    Cons

    Invasive calling techniques which included reading paragraphs of information or asking long questions that wasted peoples' time. We were taught to convince people to buy things even when they clearly didn't want them and got upset. The strategy for some of the products was to get their credit card on a low introductory price then keep a larger recurring price on them until they canceled it, which I was told was hard to do.

    Pros

    Good work experience as a call center agent, will hire you regardless of your resume and work experience, fun and friendly support staff such as IT and admin.

    Cons

    Very low opportunity for advancement, strong lack of supervisor and management support, poor hiring practices, very low pay compared to similar positions with other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where you started and treat your employees how you wanted to be treated at that point in your career, if you blame your management team for the company consistently losing money you should support them in fixing the problem instead of expecting them to "just know".
