I have been working at SYKES full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Work from home opportunity that allows some flexibility. Bonus structure does allow for some advancement. Good stable environment for a call center professional to grow and develop

Cons

Travel take too much time away from the family with little drive towards actual results, compensation is way behind the marketplace, direct manager is a difficult person to work with all of the time.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SYKES full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ? near places to buy lunch. Good supervisors and phone reps.

    Cons

    Noisy , dirty, clueless upper management . Normal friendly and motivating work atmosphere is non existent. The threat to fire , suspended or discipline is a daily occurrence on the floor as the management walks the call floor looking for violations . Very unprofessional management style . Hr is useless and NOT helpful in any way. This company has a extremely high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Be retrained or replaced .

    I have been working at SYKES as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None at all. They are a scam

    Cons

    Let me begin about actually being accepted. This is after you provide so much information. Phone interview, recording a pretend call. Then testing. Over 3 hours and it is difficult. Puzzles, math, psychological, honesty questions. It was as if you were taking an IQ test. Stressful. Then you are placed into the system where you can look for potential positions. They do not tell you in the beginning that you must have perfect credit. Nor do they tell you that you cannot use a Mac. My computer is new and cost $3000 and I can't use it?? And you must have a landline (which I can understand). Next you must have 2 headsets that you purchase ($30 each). Here is the kicker: for EVERY position you want to apply for you must pay for your own background check. $45 EACH time you apply!! Of course this is after another 1 hour worth of "surveys" with each position. With all of the time wasted, and assuming you want to pay them over and over for wasting your time...you might just get a job and it could be a temp position. Aaaaaaall of this for $8-9.00 per hour?!?! Total scam

    Advice to Management

    Be up front with fees, system needed, credit qualification before making people begin the process!
