Great Part time Job in Orlando

Current Employee - Telephone Representative in Orlando, FL
Current Employee - Telephone Representative in Orlando, FL

I have been working at DialAmerica part-time (less than an year)

Pros

If you are looking for a good part time job DialAmerica is the place. The earning potential is solid. You will not earn tons of money but a decent amount for pt time emplyment can be earned if you work for it. The work is not hard - you talk to people all day trying to sell SiriusXM radio, that they already had prior or is just experiencing. The staff is friendly from the top down and they want you to succeed.

Cons

The negativity from customers can be draining at times but that comes with phone sales. You surround yourself with positive motivated people which helps.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really have none. I have had a great experience since working with the company. I feel like part of the family that was described in training.

    I have been working at DialAmerica full-time

    Pros

    They will literally hire anyone and are always hiring, so it is a starting place that looks good on a resume to most companies

    Cons

    1) Fast food employees make as much or more

    2) Due to no hiring standards whatsoever, many of the employees could easily appear on certain trashy daytime talk shows

    3) most of the management members lack basic knowledge about what they are in charge of along with any sort of work ethic and are basically just along for the ride

    4) promotions are determined based upon who is buddies with the people in power

    5) there is an incredibly annoying and ridiculous business lingo of phrases and words that are constantly used that must have come from some sort of self help workshop

    6) A job with actual standards run by people who know what they are doing and have a decent work ethic does not need to constantly hire new employees - DA is ALWAYS hiring for a reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time pretending to be rock stars half your age at local dive bars and spend more time understanding the problems that dominate every aspect of your business. Almost no one at any level of authority understands basic sales, customer service, program knowledge, or how to manage employees. Simply creating new positions in management out of thin air with clueless people who were mediocre at lower level positions to address the problems only makes things worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    recognize the talent you have, before you lose them!! I worked OB am shift, and there is almost no way to move up. They have a part time supervisor there who is more qualified to be a manager than half the managers they have there. Almost the entire floor looks to him for leadership, yet he has been doing this for almost a year and can't get made full time. It's a shame because it's the main reason I left, and I know he was looking for other things as well. If you are just looking for a parttime job then its great, but if you are looking for a career, look elsewhere.
