Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

  1. Credit Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pompano Beach, FL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SAFCO (Pompano Beach, FL) in May 2022

    Interview

    Sweat Shop Atmosphere- Modern Day Slavery
    This is my experience.
    First and foremost, HR personnel did not disclose important job details prior to interview. Issues such as scheduling and metrics.
    You will be expected to work rotating weekends. You will also be expected to decision between 65-100 applications per day. I was told by management that I’d have on average 3.5 mins to decision an app, 8 mins maximum per call. At the same time they want you to have good relationships with all dealers. With these metrics I’d be scared to go to the bathroom if I worked there.

    I have some metrics of my own I’d like to add. You’ll be decisioning between 1700 and 2000 apps per month. Yes you read that right. I brought up the issue that they might be understaffed and they told me 7 credit buyers is their “magic number”. I can’t imagine when someone goes on PTO what happens to the rest of the group. Talk about a burnout atmosphere. Pay discussed is extremely low for expected metrics.
    Get this, they outsource an entire department out to Colombia. I’ll let you come up with your own conclusions on that.
    Be prepared to work nights, weekends, and unrealistic metrics due to understaffing.
    STAY AWAY unless you’re in dire need of work.
