        Listen, I was in the postion at some point where I was taking any job life could throw at me. Trugreen was the first to call back. The recruiter was nice and she gave me the basic explanation of what the job was, and I thought,"Hey, this'll be easy." so I accepted. The first 2 weeks were your usual video call with the trainer in a class of people just the same. I was excited to help people. I never had a job with VTO (Voluntary time off) before and it was cool to have. I loved the friendly people I worked with. We were able to bring in a second monitor and other office equipment.


        In terms of cons, they far out way the pros. First off, the website they show in training is set up differently than the one they actually have on the website, so get ready to relearn on your own where everything is on the actual website. After week 3, you will go home absolutely EXHAUSTED, like your brain will feel like it's made of oatmeal. Turnover is so high for this position for a reason, $16 an hour is not enough for picking up the slack of others. On top of that, every SINGLE thing you is tracked, and if you go over the 25 second "courtesy" aftercall, and have to use additional aftercall, you'll get emails for it on a daily. Back to the website, be prepared to restart either your computer and/or the website several times a day.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      What level of influence do potential stakeholders have in the decision-making process during a peer interview? For instance, in my upcoming 3rd round interview involving three peers, following successful phone screenings and VP interviews, would a scenario where one peer has a positive impression while the others don't, or vice versa, significantly impact my chances of securing the job?
