Worst job I've ever had

Seasonal Customer Care (Former Employee) Greenville, WI

ProsYou'll make enough money to pay for the gas to get there and home, but not enough to live on

ConsToxic work environment. Most are underpaid, but ineffective management is overpaid. Big brother mentality company-wide. Irresponsible upper management, causing the once prominent company to be on the verge of collapse. They often only hire temp/seasonal employees instead of establishing competent, well-trained employees. Training for years of program implementation is taught in 3 days and employees often grow frustrated with the lack of training and quit. You will get yelled at for using the restroom because you're not on the phones.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire full-time staff, train them well, treat them with respect and turn your company around!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was a chaotic experience as the company was going through a bankruptcy and a lot of turn-over at the C-Suite level.
