I worked at Portfolio Recovery full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Bonuses !Your commissions earning potential is unlimited, pto, benefits, co-workers, on site gym and cafeteria.

Cons

Micromanagement, You get treated like your in grammar school, low wages, classless individuals, drama, you are only as good as your last payment collected, many managers shouldn't be managers. They are always hiring because they have a hire turn over rate.

Advice to Management

Stop treating employees like grammar school kids. We understand that are purpose for being there is to collect money!

    I have been working at Portfolio Recovery full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At PRA, you can make some really great money. Bonus checks are given monthly and they help out alot!!! You will work for every penny of it though!!! You are constantly talking to a new person and having a different experience with each client, so the job never gets old!!

    Cons

    They don't take harassment serious enough. You only get your bonus check if you have 40 hours each week, if you fall even one minute short, BYE BYE BONUS!!! You also have to meet a certain quota before you get your bonus. You don't receive a bonus if you only collect a little bit of money. If your not persuasive, this job is not for you!!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and take action about it!! Quit lying to some clients about being able to sue on an out-of-stat account and quit lying about having solid proof about a current checking or savings account!!!!

    I worked at Portfolio Recovery full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started off making 10.00 an hour for training and had no previous call center experience I was able to make a bonus for about three months. Guaranteed 40 hours a week with my own desk space. And daily competitions to win stuff like gas cards and gift certificates

    Cons

    the schedule i worked was horrible 11am to 12 midnight and they are not understanding when it comes to calling out for ANY reason whether your husband just died kid got sick they do not care unless you have PTO and have previously requested time off they have unrealistic collections goals and expect you to ask really personal questions. I left before they fired me but the way they do it is really embarassing they basically throw you out and deactivate your badge this job is really stressful on the average person you have to clear your whole schedule for them and the gift certificates you get are deducted from your paycheck which really defeats the purpose

    Advice to Management

    Management is really insensitive and unwilling to help you. Training only last for a couple weeks and they start you off in the middle of a month expecting you to collect a couple thousand dollars in debt
