    I worked at Opinion Search part-time

    Pros

    Very easy work. Fairly casual work environment. It's not very challenging which can be good or bad for a student looking to earn some money. Overall I'd say it's a good entry for down the road career jobs since you are on the telephone a lot. For example, I lucked out and got a role in B2B sales because of this experience (as well as some leadership and university experience), and then went further down the road of a career in business development.

    Cons

    Boring, boring, boring, absolutely mind numbingly boring. Stare at the clock, tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock. It's just not rewarding because you don't grow your career. It's the same thing everyday with some different surveys and it can be incredibly boring. Not to mention your bothering people and they yell at you and you can understand why because you tell them its a short survey when in reality it's about 30 minutes long sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Motivation. Find a way to change things up, and motivate the employees. Everyone working there is barely productive and other than chatting with people, watching games on the computer, and wasting away some time, no one takes it seriously. The management themselves think they are way too top league when in reality they are also doing a rather boring and montonous task and probably aren't being paid well (I'm looking at you monitors).

    Pros

    Flexible Hours and Good Entry Level Work. The environment is low stress. The learning curve is not great.

    Cons

    The work does become repetitive. There are not many negative points, it depends if the fit is good or not.

    Advice to Management

    Great for students who are looking to make money while in school. Would not advise as a full-time position.

    Pros

    Fairly easy to do, just reading script on hand..

    Cons

    Mind numbing and boring if you don't have a friend next to you. "Lovely" recipients that are not afraid to cuss you out. Very high turnover and little flexibility

    Extremely flexible, pick your own house, can get away with slacking if you are on the right "team"

    No opportunity to advance, no pay raises, bonus compensation is structured so you will not get any bonus

    Give raises and be more appreciative of employees
