I worked at eBay Inc.

Pros

The people at eBay were amazing, they made it fun to come in to work. Most times members would be very grateful for the support which made it easier to deal with the angry members. Agents were always eager to learn and in turn I learned a lot from them.

Cons

Members can be very mean spirited and difficult to deal with. There are some people who worked harder than others meaning that sometimes you would have to pick up their slack.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop outsourcing. I've had many interactions with outsourcing partners and in large part they are not fun to deal with - I can only imagine what members experiences are.

    I worked at eBay Inc.

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Excellent lower level supervisors
    - Tools that make it easier to help customers quickly
    - Work-life balance

    Cons

    - Unclear directions
    - Too many changes for members on the site
    - Misleading promotions
    - Upper management does not often ask employees who deal with their customers on a regular basis what main issues on the site are
    - Too much outsourcing (while there are some excellent reps in other countries, there are numerous problems with outsourcing phone support. Many members are not able to understand outsourcers or do not feel their concerns are understood by outsourcers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the issues that are affecting members on the site by asking employees on the front lines. Do more to educate members on changes to the site and use less fine print.
