    Pros

    Easy to get hired on and they offer benefits for part time employee's. Somewhat flexible scheduling. As stated in the title, the hourly pay rate is not bad for the type of work.

    Cons

    For the most positions, part time work is all that is available to most applicants. This is a typical call center environment where everyone is expendable and its all about call stats. While my tenure at the Dallas TX location I saw more than one rigged "contest" to get employee numbers up, only to find at the end all employees had been disqualified due to various reasons but never notified. Was disappointed to see company started requiring background checks. Full time positions are only available in management rolls.

    Advice to Management

    Devise a survey system that allows the research reps to be less scripted. Don't "trick" employees into performance goals without following through. Bring back the open door policy to qualified applicants and drop the background checks.
