    Pros

    Good pay benefits I love for working for them my cons will sound like I don't. It's just I see areas that need to be re-evaluated

    Cons

    Take rate and CCK is out reach for some because of the area we work so it should be looked at and also 2% on SIN30 really? I feel there is no room for mistakes at all when you are reaching for 25% incentive. Also how about when storms hit and tornados come through take out dishes why can't there be a buffer for that so it doesn't affect our metrics.

    Pros

    Decent pay. On slow days was sometimes given the option to go home early. Excellent benefits, especially the the health insurance. Option to have free DirecTv service. There are some career opportunities, as well.

    Cons

    Dealing with horrible customers every day. Schedule was extremely rigid. Sometimes mandatory overtime. Stuck in a cubicle all day. Almost always constant calls.

    Advice to Management

    Management does try to make the job a little more fun with daily and monthly contests with pretty good prizes.

    There are really no major cons overall. The experience will vary depending on your exact department and manager, but the company does everything they can to make it a great place to work.
