friendly but fast pace place
Credit Operation Agent (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONApril 7, 2016
Pros: friendly co worker
Cons: salary too low
a typically day will be arrive on time. log in to your computer on that, which they are very strict on. then the calls are dialed automatically, and you may have inbound or outbound calls.
i have learned quite a lot working there. they provide a complete training as a credit operation agent.
the co-workers are very nice there, one of the most attractive part for working there.
the hardest part will be making your own decisions according to the situation. because every phone call is different.

Competitive Environment
Collections Officer (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONMarch 8, 2016
Similar to any collections environment, Continuously making outbound and taking inbound collections calls. Negotiation as much as allowed to help the customer relieve their debt. Always in competition with fellow employees and teams, however the team aspect is very much emphasized and acknowledged.

Collections Officer (Current Employee), Newmarket, ONMarch 2, 2016
Pros: Stable on time pay
Cons: Expects more than they pay for
Allied International Credit likes to work it's staff to the bone for just over minimum wage. The hours can be flexible depending on your department and manager and the benefits are decent, however, the job has absolutely no room to move up in the company and when there is it is based off of favouritism. The management is a joke, they try to guilt you in to doing their jobs for them. the people are nice but overall the experience is hardly to die for.

collections agent (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONJanuary 4, 2016
Working at Allied International Credit was an amazing experience. I am very upset with the fact that I had to leave Allied because of personal issues but if I had the chance again I would most definitely apply for a job again.

Everyday was pretty much the same. Same friendly and fun people, but the people we encountered on the phone were always a surprise. When you got frustrated or upset and didn't know what to do, the managers were always there to help.

Good entry level job, management is poor
Collections Officer (Current Employee), Newmarket, ONJanuary 4, 2016
Pros: co-workers
Cons: management
Very good company to work for. It teaches you a lot about your finances and how the credit bureau works. The management in some departments is VERY bad. Co-workers are fun and enjoyable to be around. This is a sit-down-at-your-desk-your-entire-shift type of job which is suitable for some, not so much for others. The turnover rate is extremely high as collections is a very iffy business. Allied hires EVERYONE, as long as you're competent. The pay sucks and the commission is only good if you work in certain departments. Apply at your own risk.

The worst job you could ever work.
Account Manager (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONNovember 25, 2015
Pros: Guaranteed 40 hours
Cons: Co-workers, hours, and pay.
The hours suck. You work in a high school like environment where all people do is gossip, and people are extremely two faced. The management is exactly like the regular employees, except they butt-kissed a little more than the regular employee to get where they are.

A/R Representative for Rogers Inc. (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONSeptember 22, 2015
Allied provided the skills I needed to be able to talk to any individual and definitely allowed me to be a better negotiator. The people working were great to hang out with but I wouldn't want to work here for more than a year.

A good stepping stone
Collections Agent (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONSeptember 11, 2015
A great environment for learning the industry and using it as a stepping stone for bigger and better things. The opportunities for advancement are few and far between. Unfortunately the employee turn-over is quite large, and employees feel like a number rather than a valued employee at most times.

Above Average Call Centre
Loss Mitigation Agent (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONAugust 31, 2015
I was a first party collections agent for a US-based client, and every day we were expected to make contact with as many customers as possible. Then we were supposed to remind them of their outstanding debt and try to help them set up payments or use tools to bring them current.

I learned how to use online payment processing software as well as how to remain in a customer service oriented mood while discussing late payments. A lot of education is given to each employee, particularly how to speak with and contact debtors while maintaining customer privacy.

Management was always very nice, and helpful. They will help you succeed and assist you in any way you like. They will go out of their way to be your friend and speak with you in private should something need to be discussed. There are many opportunities to learn and improve, however job security is non-existent should you not perform well after a few months of being there. Promotions are all from within, however to go from an entry level position to the next step up takes 4-6 years, as there is a long line of people waiting to be promoted. Climbing the ladder will be a long, arduous process.

Your co-workers are essentially high schoolers, as being in the bullpens feels like you are back there once again. Drama, cliques, and gossip abound. You can however ignore all of that and focus solely on your work if you do not mind being a social pariah. The education level of everyone until middle management usually does not exceed high school graduate.

The hardest part of the job will be just starting out. It is difficult – more... to begin cold calling and collections work if you have never done it before. It is a typical call centre job. The best part of every day though will be socializing with your co-workers. – less

Great company; learned a lot about the collections process and continuously learning new things everyday. Working with great people and management who want to see you succeed creates a positive work environment. The office facilities are all new and having access to a gym at work is a nice convenience.
