    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative, Combined Billing, Retention Team in Chattanooga, TN

    I worked at Convergys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -$10/hr base pay starting out
    -Monthly sales commission
    -Decent health benefits (eye, dental, and medical)
    -40+ hours a week
    -UTO & PTO

    Cons

    -High turn-over rates
    -New hires have two weeks on the floor in sales department before quickly being moved to CRG (retention department) whether they have a choice in the matter.
    -The management is not great.
    -Some team leaders on the floor are unreliable as team leaders (never available, etc)
    -Sitting all day in cubicle
    -Too many staff to find a free computer before being late trying to get logged into one
    -High stress level job at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Be available more to better supervise those under you, because the chosen team leaders could have been chosen more carefully.
    -The team meetings are sometimes completely ineffective and just took time away from making more sales, bundles, or "saves" in retention department
    -In order to take time off in advance, don't make employees jump through hoops trying to get ahold of floor support, etc. If someone says they can fill in for another employee or trade shifts, the policy is ridiculous. Employees have to fill in for it through work computers 24 hours in advance (Not 23 hours but right at 24) and aren't shown how to prior.
    -Alot of the training is unimportant facts trainees never remember about the first satellite, etc, and could be shortened to one week instead of two.
