Telephone Interviewer, 180 Bloor Street West, Toronto ON - 19 November 2016
I work as a telephone interviewer doing surveys. The company offers flexible hours and you can work whenever you want, but occasionally shifts are cancelled. Pay is minimum wage, and there is a bonus if you do more than a certain number of surveys per hour, but it is very hard to get a significant amount of bonus. It gets frustrating sometimes because most of the people that you call don't want to do the survey. The company will hire pretty much anyone and they are always hiring new employees. The computers and phones at this call centre are old and sometimes break and the building this company is in is run down. There are opportunities to do other work like mystery shopping at this company (Forum Research operates a mystery shopping company called "Service Metrics").
