I worked at Harte Hanks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Steady hours and pay, there are some good people that work there. Professional environment, good trainers. Location in Austin is pretty nice. If you are looking for a decent job to start out with getting experience it is a good place for it.

Cons

Not a lot of room to advance, pay is on the low end of customer service jobs. When I worked there they did not give raises. Wouldn't recommend as a career choice as the options to move up are few and far between.

    I have been working at Harte Hanks as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of time between calls, only really busy a few times over 2-3 month project. Got lots of reading done. No stress.

    Cons

    Seasonal, nobody sure if they will have a position lined up when project is over. Low pay, but it is the easiest job I've ever had. Call center workforce management based out of Philippines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even with attrition of people leaving for better jobs, call center is absurdly over staffed. I'm not sure who's coming out ahead on that. Could be it's to pad the bill to the client.
