The worst place I have every worked

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Collection Agent  in  Newmarket, ON (Canada)
Current Employee - Collection Agent in Newmarket, ON (Canada)

Pros

the pay is ok for a second household income, 13.50/hour. I have met alot of wonderful people, and have become friends with a few. These aren't people I would go out with or invite over for dinner, but they are nice to know for work. We have alot of the same interests when it comes to work and work ethics. There are alot of people working that need to work, but there are too many that are just there for the pay check and live with thier parents and dont need to work. There are alot of wonderful people there.

Cons

Management doesn't listen to what an employee has to say. Basically it is their way and nothing else

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to the employees and take into consideration what they may have to say

    Current Employee - Collections Agent in Newmarket, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    Commission - if you can beat the average you will get a slice of monthly bonus (varies with each department tho)
    Lots of training
    You meet a lot of great people
    company tries to suck up with free casual days
    Overtime comes up a lot
    shift premium if you work evening shift
    Paid gym on sight
    Some advancement career opportunities (also in cons)

    Cons

    where to begin...
    You can get fired at any time, even if your numbers are good and you been there for a while (i seen people fired after 8 months to a year with the company - 2 managers just come up with an empty box and say its a business decision and don't give any other reasons- and you are escorted out
    you get minimal wage (potential increase of 0.25 cents if you last at least 6 months and do good)
    you work in a call center and you are also a collections agent - you cold call people asking for money that they owe

    you have to be dressed in business clothes - TO SIT AROUND FOR 8 HOURS IN FRONT of a computer (you do get an option to pay 10$ a month to get to dress casual for 1 day [weekend days fri-sun only]

    IF you get put into an American department be prepared to work Canadian holidays
    some People that you call will be rude will swear at you and will hang up on you if you can stand that on a daily basis than youll do great here

    if you call in sick (even if you got a sick day) you are still expected to come in for an extra shift to make up your hours on the phone and you WILL NOT get over time pay (yes after you hit 44 hrs that week its still the same reg pay

    There is no time and a half pay for holidays that you work, you instead get a paid day off but you can only use it if you had it approved way in advance of the day that you want to use it on

     advancement career opportunities- be prepared to get overlooked if you haven't been there long enough

    Some people get to get away with a lot of things while others are watched and haunted down on the spot for any errors

    over all good company to start in if you trying to build experience in collections, customer service, call center environment

    BENEFITS are only available after 6 months (excluding dental- that comes after 12 months) and they are the worst benefits ever (as was told to me by the pharmacist that did my prescription , they got me 2$ off my prescription and i paid the other 74$) very specific and only cover the most basic cheapest drugs

    During holiday and tax season you will be begged to do over time there will be lots of agents around... than february and march will come around and there will be massive firings and a third of the newer people get canned and over time is gone until the next rush, you are only as valuable to the company as the amount of $ you generate per hour

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    relax the dress code - senior management constantly says its to impress potential clients but those only come once a quarter - 6 months. its ok for senior management and CEO to be in their office if they wear shorts and work out clothes BUT not for you to wear something that's an inch too short or the wrong color or is not on the aproved list (there's 2 pages for dress code - depending on your sex)

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    There is no pro to harassing people

    Cons

    Just erase everyones bad credit and quit you'll probably feel better after then working there with that kind of pay minimum wage is $11.00 $2.50 isn't to far from there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the employees more for working with the customers people sometimes go through hard ship sometimes

    Doesn't Recommend
