    Pros

    I learned every day obstacles to apply to my career as well as my personal life. I truly feel like I belong here, the environment is comfortable and pleasing. My supervisors and coworkers are wonderful. You really have to apply yourself to this position but it is all well worth it and the outcome is the best reward.

    Cons

    The uncertainty of having a permanent status of our employment was the only downfall, but if you truly apply yourself and have a passion for this job then there are absolutely no worries.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly more thorough and hands-on learning applied during the 6 week training course but I'm sure new methods will take place next hiring season.

    Pros

    Working from home Flexible Schedule Good Management

    Cons

    Working from home you have to ask questions in a chat room and when you have multiple people posting at the same time your question can get overlooked and you have to keep posting over and over until you get a response.. when your are on the line with a customer time is everything so that was a strain waiting for long periods to get the info you need to help out a customer.

    Pros

    Good training program , however the schedule is set until you're on production. Even then there's certain schedules you have to choose from , but it gives you a little bit of freedom.

    Cons

    Constant calls , always have to follow the script given , and you cant deviate from it.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare representatives for all types of responses given by aggravated customers.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to work a full time job. Good support from the trainers and team leaders. Will work with you on availability and if time off is needed as long as you follow the procedures. Nice facilities.

    Cons

    No opportunity to get a raise. The only was is the move up to a new position. There aren't many negatives as long as you are willing to come in and do the job that you have been hired to do.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a better salary after 90 day or even up to 1 year. Nine dollars an hour is not enough for someone to support themselves, even at an entry level position.

    Pros

    -Lots of hours -Lots of resources for solving problems -Lots of perks (wellness, tickets, discounts, giftcards for high metrics) -Easy-to-use debit card provided for paychecks -Easy to connect with other employees if you are lost, or for moral support -Wonderful team leads who worked together to support each other -Work-at-home!

    Cons

    -TERRIBLE training -Trainers do not have "sensitivity training", say some terrible things to minority and LGBTQ -System to log into the virtual desktop either worked great, or not at all -Trainers gave you resources, and just said "use them" did not give examples or show us more efficient ways to use it -Say they have more employment available, but if you apply before you are done with your contract, and they contact you after, you have no way to access the system to take assessments

    Advice to Management

    Audit your trainers better!

    Internal Policies were not always enforced by everyone in upper management - The good ole boy network was the only way of advancing

    Hold project mangers feet to the fire - don' t put buddies into positions that they can not do.
