    I worked at Answer Financial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hourly, set hours, PTO, bonuses but only the inhouse seemed to earn them. The remote agents were never on the list for Presidents Club or other bonuses.

    Cons

    They totally control everything from the time you are on each call, what you say and how you say it, most is verbatim and you get written up if it's not. If you get sick or a family member gets sick they get rid of you and I saw that over and over.
