Former Employee - Telephone Interviewer  in  Omaha, NE

Pros

Flexible schedule. Job for young people who do not need to take breaks for 8 hours. The company does not want you to take breaks. And, they find ways to discourage you not to take breaks.

Cons

Lied to about starting wage. Told over $9 dollars per hour. Found out, if you do not make quota, you would get minimum wage. You do not take pay for breaks , at least paid breaks as this hurts your "capacity", a meaure of how many surveys you do. You do not get paid vacation, YOU DO NOT GET PAID SICK LEAVE, YOU DO NOT GET PAID HOLIDAYS. THEY MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT GET OVER QUOTA TOO MUCH, SO AS NOT TO PAY YOU AS MUCH. STAY AWAY.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You do not care.

    Pros

    good people (energetic, fun) on the consulting side

    Cons

    Heard some horror stories from other employees that sounded like a completely different company in other parts of the consulting business

    Seems to be lots of stops and starts in progressing up the food chain in the consulting world

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    REcognize the full impact of a change program before you start it.

    Former Employee - Interviewer in Lincoln, NE

    Pros

    schedule flexibility... that's about it.

    Cons

    Utter lack of respect for employees. No paid anything... sick days, vacation, toilet breaks, "guidance sessions". Employees are not paid at all unless they are on the phone. Feedback is requested and then completely ignored... standing up for employee fairness is punished. The fact that you could be fired for making a single error hangs over you...pizza's and tootsie-rolls, and Hersey kisses do not mitigate the tacit knowledge that, at any time, you could be terminated. Employee engagement is just a string of consonants and vowels. They sell a product to which they themselves don't subscribe. Simple fairness is a foreign concept. Interviewing is not easy. Opening the front door, the pay, treatment, lack of honest respect, and the daily grind make you feel like you are entering a coal-mine... cogs in wheels... Gallup is a company that lacks humanity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the work employees accomplish for its difficulty. Generally, employees are 1 paycheck from disaster... missing work due to illness is just too costly. Include sick pay (dare I say vacation pay, too), monetary respect... empathy
