What are perks and other benefits like at VIRTUAL GAL FRIDAY?

Pros

I see absolutely no benefits in working for this company nor it's CEO Nancy Brown. I had the unfortunate displeasure to work for her and she never even paid me for the meager 10 hours I worked! She devalues those who work for her!

Cons

PLZ BEWARE, the negative reviews are true! Lack of training. Nancy is nice for the first 5 minutes then shows her true nature when you don't learn EVERYTHING within the first few days after MEAGER training of MULTIPLE distinct software & scheduling programs. Be advised, you MUST be available for her all day but will not do actual paid "work". You do not work a full time job! You must be ready and available to work all day, but will ONLY get paid for the few minutes you're answering a call. Then it could be hours till the next... Perfect if you work silently on the computer, already, but don't expect this job to be your bread and butter! Well, to add insult to injury, after the first week of "working" 10 hours out of 45 hours of exclusive availability, with headset, at computer, ready to answer her calls at the drop of a dime....(not to mention, she was snippy, rude & mean due to my inexperience & unfamiliarity with the different programs within the first few days).. I realized this was not the job for me... Then, she used me for free work and REFUSED TO PAY ME FOR THE TIME I WORKED FOR HER! That is petty and unprofessional... Listen to those of us who REALLY worked with her, (not the multiple overly nice reviews which appear written by someone who REALLY likes her, A LOT) or you'll find out for yourself... If she'd pay me the hours she owes me I might consider changing this review, until then, If you're considering working for her, you've been warned!

Advice to Management

Offer your employees something for the actual time they're available at your beckon call, not necessarily a regular hourly wage, but something to mitigate the low hours. Should offer better, detailed training.... Had you not been so rude at my failure to "know it all" in the first week, I might've stayed on, but your rudeness & you're not paying me for the actual time I DID work takes the prize for unprofessionalism! If you aren't bitter and mean-spirited, why not treat people better when they first comes to work for you & pay them for the work they do for you? Please, these are rhetorical questions, no response is necessary... Although, I see you feel the need to try to discredit everyone who comes on here to tell the truth about our experiences!!

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at VIRTUAL GAL FRIDAY?

Pros

There’s nothing good I can’t say!

Cons

Your not trained properly! They provide videos for you to watch. No hands on training! Barely any communication, lots of people resign or just don’t come back. They offer you pay per hour, but in reality it’s pay per task that’s doesn’t even make up for an hour.

Advice to Management

Train your employees properly, be professional and organized. Have software that actually works instead of switching software every few weeks.

No hands on training!

How is management perceived at VIRTUAL GAL FRIDAY?

Pros

Able to work from home.

Cons

Low pay, little chance for increased pay even after asking about year reviews, etc. Managers will favor some VAs over others by telling them more information about what’s going on with the company. Some VAs think they’re your manager when they’re not.

Advice to Management

I started at Virtual Gal Friday over a year ago making $15. They said their starting pay was $15-$16 so I said that was fine and was offered $15. That is not per hour, it is per hour worked meaning you have to track your time and if you don’t have any tasks to do, you’re just sitting there without making money. I had my 6 month review 2 months late after multiple excuses from the management that they were redoing the process and got a raise of 50 cents. A few months later I threatened to leave for another job and got up to $18. My 1 year review time came and went and even after asking about it I didn’t get it and left 2 months later. The pay is terrible and you’re expected to work off of thank yous from the management instead of increases in pay. Some of the clients are very rude and treat you like you’re stupid or like you should solely focus on them. The managers favor certain VAs by telling them more information about what’s going on than others. Certain VAs will think they are managers and try to tell you what tasks to do or how/ when you can take time off to fit their schedule. Overall, the structure is not good and there is blatant favoritism. I would not work here again, if you want a virtual job look at other companies who do the same thing because they pay a salary and benefits. My advice for the management would be to change the name because it is embarrassing and to start treating your VAs with basic respect by honoring their review dates and giving them the right information. The VAs who have been there longer are expected to do a lot more work and training others without anything extra in return. If you want people to stay, do better.
