      Pros

      I have no Pros working for arise virtual services.

      Cons

      More than I can list. Google Arise virtual solutions before you shovel out money to have more computer issues than you can handle in an 8 hour day. Or if you don't want to be paid *Between* calls... because an 8 hour day can quickly change to a 5 hour day. Sitting on hold with tech support or sitting "in a chat room WAITING for tech support will cost you too. (I have spent many days waiting 6 hours or more for tech support) Want hours? Your hours are broken down into 20 minute intervals, which you sign up for. You might work an hour at 7am and 20 minutes at 330pm and 20 at 445pm and an hour at 11pm. How is that for "freedom?" And glassdoor... please dont take this post down.. it is all absolutely 100% true as of today- 4/23/2021. I could go on.. but if you are blind enough to still try it out with Arise virtual services, there's no stopping you. You'll just have to find out for yourself.

      Toxic culture and a scam of a platform

      May 4, 2021 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      Flexible hours for the most part

      Cons

      Pervasive culture of obsequiousness. Leadership has honestly no idea what it's doing in every facet of the business I saw. The platform is a total joke - why would you pay a monthly fee to use a platform that doesn't guarantee full-time work, and pays probably under $20/hr? And you have to provide your own equipment for everything, and you aren't paid for training. I realize the company promotes and markets all of this as "not a full-time work opportunity" and a "side hustle" but in the end, you're the product, and you're getting absolutely shafted for the time you put in. And on the corporate side, the expectations are insane, the communication is horrible, and the way these people talk to each other in meetings is truly unsettling.

      Dead end job

      Pros

      Flexible hours are always available

      Cons

      No mentorship, just cheerleaders, who are not allowed to talk to you personally. The multiple programs are constantly freezing up or breaking down. Phone systems to take calls is horrific. No one answers email at corporate but you are expected to respond in a split second. Some programs require 20 minutes to open and continually have continued education of which you don’t get paid for your time to accomplish. If you watch the arise website you’ll see the same clients year after year because of such high turnover. That is because of Arise not the clients your contract with.

      Great work-from-home backup job

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You can make your own hours Incentives are offered during busy seasons Most of the time you can go over 40 hours/week. The most I've seen is 80. You can become your own boss (independent contractor) and have people work under you (optional) OR you can choose to work under someone that's already an Independent contractor with the company

      Cons

      The pay varies between the clients you service for so make sure you verify your hourly wage before paying for a class. Unpaid training with little pay afterward Make sure you write down your hours of service.
