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. Content Strategist Interview

    Negative Experience

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Student Loan Hero (New York, NY)


    I applied to Student Loan Hero after receiving a LinkedIn push notification about the role. I had been following them as I have worked remotely in the past and was interested in doing so again. (My current company is very flexible, but not fully remote.) My current role is the same title, and I have consulted in fintech, so I thought it would be a great fit. It was! The first interview went well, albeit there were some initial technical issues. The woman that screened me was apparently unable to call me and after 15 mins of waiting I received a “sorry I missed you” email. I immediately responded and we were able to connect, where upon she told me that she had been having this issue all week. (If that was the case, why didn’t she suspect it?) The interview went well (while we talked, however, her children were right by her and loud), and I was scheduled for a follow-up with a more senior person. That interview went well, too, and a few short days later I was informed of an hour long, unpaid test project I needed to complete. I completed the project last night and then today received a heavily misspelled email saying that due to a recent operational change, the position I was in consideration for is no longer available. Maybe they could’ve had this epiphany before I took time out of my full-time job to complete their assignment? Seems like they’re flying at the seat of their pants. Very unprofessional. Feel like I dodged a bullet.
