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

Pros

The money was okay. Starting pay was 9.00. You were guaranteed 40 hours so that was a plus. The job itself wasn't hard. Avoiding the drama with newsy coworkers was more of the goal of the day. But overall my personal experience was okay.the training period was fun also.

Cons

Too much workplace drama especially with the younger aged coworkers who were really immature. Long shifts.

Advice to Management

Provide more training on workplace etiquette. Develop more realistic schedules.

    I have been working at SYKES full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's better than working minimum wage and it's a sit down job.

    Cons

    The company cares more about numbers and than it's employees!! You get punished for being out of work even though you have a legitimate reason. Too much stress for the pay. Management sucks! You have to work in any weather situation...i.e. had to come to work in a snow storm "because the client need us". So we have to risk our lives for the client's needs. I've never worked in a more horrible call center.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees more!! We have lives too!!
