    I worked at Organo Gold International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary is pretty okay for what you are doing,
    They will hire almost everyone who can speak the languages they claim to speak at a decent level,
    Co-workers are for the most part very nice people

    Cons

    Had incidents were team leaders and management were downright disrespectful,
    They might make you stay after your shift ends if there is any pending calls even though you are not getting paid after your shift ends,
    "Free coffee " in the kitchen is sometimes expired
    Turnover rate is high, very high amount of work sometimes as they are constantly understaffed.
    There is not a lot of space for growth in this department

    Advice to Management

    You know what is going wrong and what your employees think as they voice their opinions, please take them more into consideration.
