    I have been working at Pole To Win full-time

    Good people at all levels. Opportunity to learn and succeed within a great atmosphere. Performance is rewarded and teamwork encouraged.

    If you want to sit back and relax, this isn't the place.

    I have been working at Pole To Win (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quick, easy hiring process and on-boarding.

    Cons

    Incredibly disorganized, unknown workload at any given time, constant turnover. They are basically their own QA staffing agency. No one really seems to know what is happening.

    Advice to Management

    Give your contract employees a little knowledge of what their time frame is going to look like. I know is contract work but this is a small step away from day labor.

    Pros

    There are some great people there

    Cons

    The favoritism runs rampant and management is scattered at best. If you don't like feeling like you might be fired at the drop of a hat don't bother. Moving up is hard unless you make the right people happy. If you need or want a specific day off you have to find your own coverage (beg others to take your shift) or apply for leave that day at least a month in advance

    Advice to Management

    Learn to detach your personal bias and stop treating your workers like they're disposable.

    Pros

    With the exception of some agents who have become jaded through their experience with Pole to Win, most of the agents are really cool people that you connect with right away.

    Cons

    Without a doubt, the worst, most dysfunctional employer I have ever had. You are thrown into an overly complex system without the resources to succeed, where you will be issued demerits for very minor things, including doing your job in the exact way that you have been instructed to do so, all for less wage than you would if you were stocking shelves or busing tables. You are instructed to lie to and get rid of customers, because they are unilaterally deemed deplorable. The goal is not to actually resolve issues, but instead to deny and form respond to as many people as possible.

    Advice to Management

    You are in the business of customer support, however in the current system, the customer you are supporting is instead, in actuality, the client. You are supposed to be the advocate for the customer, however instead, you treat the actual customers you support like garbage, resulting in your client's support being infamous within its industry. Any fastidious potential client will do the 10 minutes of research on you to see who you support, recognize that that is NOT a good thing, and find someone else to contract with. I know I would. Your support practices are absolutely atrocious, and the way you churn through agents on a weekly basis is absolutely disheartening. It's time for you to assert yourself as the subject matter expert, rather than letting your client dictate and ruin your business.

    Pros

    There was a really bad stretch for awhile, mismanagement, poor attitude, etc. Now, it really is changing for the better.

    Cons

    The company is still growing. We have new clients and some people had to move around a little.

    Advice to Management

    More growth opportunities

    I worked at Pole To Win full-time

    Pros

    The only Pros would be there is Plenty of parking in the front LOT!

    Cons

    Horrible Company ever!!!! If you are not in the "IN" crowd then you will not be promoted within. Management team promotes their favorites and do not care about anyone else but themselves. They will lay you off at the drop of a HAT! D NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Hiring Individuals that have a passion for this company! The Baltimore Management staff is horrible! Favortism is very much a major issue from the COO and President of the company on down. Local HR manager was great, however the HR Admin would tell personal business. Things that we should never hear about or know about he would disclose this information. Very bad representative of a HR team member.
