    I worked at Harris Connect full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers. The health insurance plan was great, too.

    Cons

    As a data-entry clerk, it was tedious and boring as all get-out. There was a LOT of favoritism, too. Middle managment chose their "pets" (all brown-nosers, of course), and these "pets" were LAZY and got away with doing basically nothing all day. Pay was a JOKE. I started out at $8.00 an hour. On my last day on the job -- OVER FOUR YEARS LATER -- I was making only $8.61/hour, despite being promoted from Data Entry Clerk to Proofreader during those years.. Really, if it hadn't been for their health care plan, I would have ditched that place within a year instead of staying on for over four years.

    Advice to Management

    Glad you got bought out.

    Pros

    Full-time work. Progressive training program. Sculpted scripts. Monday through Friday, no nights or weekends.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime. Micro managed. Too many rebuttals. Too many audits. You are made to feel that management is always right, no matter what.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop micro-managing your employees.

    "Sales Rep."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Above minimum wage base pay plus commissions. Full benefits package. Choice of shift with overtime sometimes necessary, but just 1 extra hour per day. Incoming calls - many of which are already familiar with the company and have purchased in the past. Management does a good job in coaching & is always there when you need them. I was very happy there.

    Cons

    Calls are timed & it is necessary to keep them extremely brief. Company keeps getting bought and sold with major shake-ups that effect good and hard working employees.
