Advice to Management
Honestly this job is not for the faint of heart. Being a debt collector pays off but it is not for everyone. This company tells you that from the beginning, and truly you know within the first month or two if its for you. If you have no problem cold calling and baby sitting adults this job is for you!
I applied online. I interviewed at Pioneer Credit Recovery (Moorestown, NJ).
After scheduling a face to face interview I could already tell this was not going to be a place I wanted to be employed. Pulling up to the drab colored building I could see several people sporadically standing around, as if they had been on a factory line for hours. Getting closer, I could not only see their lifeless corpse-esque faces but hear their droning depressed monotones buzzing about the latest victim to be released from corporate telecom chain gang. Stepping toward the door and acknowledging a gentleman, who acted as if I was not there, I opened the door to be greeted by an extremely friendly security guard who administered the first portion of the interview. You may be wondering how did the security guard do the amazing feat that would typically be reserved to HR personnel. Simple, escorting me to a room with a two page worksheet and asking if I knew how to use a calculator I was asked to complete it and return it once completed. Enter two "hiring personnel", I could see that I was way over dressed when comparing myself to the employees outside but these two in their department store rags would not be considered the least bit "business casual". The line of questioning was direct and I "played coy" as I was gauging their responses more intimately than they mine. Giving nonsensical anecdotal recollections seemed to furrow and raise eyebrows along with the occasional response of , "hmm, O.K." After the line of do you fit in the box questioning, I could tell by their mannerisms I would not be offered a position in addition to the fretted words "if we decide to move forward you will be contacted" To that I say, I'd rather be poor and happy than rich and miserable. Even considering the wage is fair for this job, but obviously the stress and possible depression that I witnessed is not worth my intellectual or emotional stability. I actually felt less intelligent sitting in the interview room.
