Decent pay, flexible hours, supportive staff, and manageable workload. Paid training is thorough and trainers/chat support are very knowledgeable and helpful.
Dealing with difficult callers at times, call software glitches out sometimes. No real cons with company or management so far.1

I guess its flexible, and schedule is in half hour increments.
I worked with ACD for over 15 years and they the cheapest company you will ever work for. Management is Toxic. They get paid hourly so they don't care that we sit for hours with no calls and we make between .25 to .32 cents a minute, but that is if you take a call. You can't be on a call longer than 8 minutes... and to top this all off their CEO was in the paper for threatening someone with a gun. They tried to keep it hush hush, but it was posted on Facebook. They never intend to hire people for hourly pay, and they are a contracting opportunity and when you treat it as so they act like they should be giving priority status. Its not a job, we don't get paid hourly and if you do in this day and time they offer $10 dollars an hour. Who can survive on that?1

The work itself is easy, but incredibly monotonous. Work you'll have to do for hours and hours and hours.
ACD Direct treats employees poorly, and pays them even worse. The company doesn't care about you, and has no issue in firing you and replacing you with someone else. You put in so much hors in this job, but you aren't even paid enough to reliably pay the bills.

I only regret my decision to work here
ACD Direct's leadership is a joke! The people in the management do not deserve to be called leaders at all. There is not a single manger here whom I look up because they are all either inexperienced or don't have the right attitude to lead. Most of the managers are also quick to blame the employeesinstead of admitting their flaws.

Nothing positive I can say to be honest.
Very disorganized and stressful. No matter how hard you work, the abuse you get from management and callers is still very taxing. There is no job security. The Hire-n-Fire policy is used frequently. They are terminating people left and right for cutting costs so there is no advantage in getting a high salary because you may get fired tomorrow. I have never in my life been a part of such a rotten company. You have been warned here.

Work life balance, flexible schedule, decent base pay
Little opportunity for upward mobility

Work from home was the only good thing about the company and nothing more!
The pay is horrible with no room for advancement in the company. You get paid by the minute and if you have no calls incoming you won't get paid. Job stability is terrible as well, you could be fired at a moment's even if you performed well. Moderators are also some of the most unprofessional people I've seen.

This is a family. I have never worked anywhere, in person or remote, that welcomed me and treated me like I was part of the family. Communication is of the upmost importance with this company. That is incredible when working remote. It's not everyday you receive an email from the top tier just saying hello and asking how things are going, for most people but it is around here. I can not express enough how great it is to work for this company.
There is not a single thing.2

There could be pros if the managers actually started doing their jobs.
This company feels like an awful circus. The leadership is horrible because most of the managers are clueless about the industry. Also, their attitude toward solving problems is abhorrent. They don't seem to be keen on solving anything at all, and it shows on how they lack effort in doing anything. DO YOUR JOBS!1

Flexible schedule and you have help through chat
-25 cents a min when its not busy you may only make $2 or $3 a hour, on top of that you cohld be working your butt off and at any moment they could terminate your contract for no reason and dont have to tell you why. Also they can be very nasty and rude when it comes to grading your calls they only point out your bad ones and in their eyes a bad call is not saying one word verbatim script. Overall its not worth the pay to be getting cursed out by customers prank calls, and so much more for just 25 cents. They also charge you $20 for a background check through them then turnaround and get 15% out of each check until they get their $20 from them also. Terrible place, with prejudice people working monitoring the calls. Lastly if you have a family emergency or internet issues and you scheduled a few shifts and cant make it, just know their going to blame you for it with a DNM( Did Not Meet) which brings your grade down and you wont be directed any calls until you improve.4
