Incoming call centre, fast paced troubleshooting environment with lots of support.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Welland, ONNovember 20, 2012
Pros: benefits
Cons: erratic schedules: working weekends, two days off every week but not necessarily together.
Convergys provides Customer Care, Billing and Techinical Support for ATT wireless customers. A typical day is very fast paced, solving customers issues Fast, Friendly, Smart! My people skills have become even better. Co-workers are very friendly and helpful as is Management. The hardest part of the job is dealing with angry customers when their service – more... is not working. Also, the work scheduling is erratic. The best part of the job is is the gratitude I receive from a customer when I have been able solve their issue. – less

First CSR job
Customer Service Representative/Charge Hand (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBOctober 9, 2012
Pros: positive environment, room for advancement
Cons: travel was far.
Convergys was my first full scale call center/CSR job. I enjoyed it there and advanced pretty quickly. However, they moved and it made getting to work a little difficult. I then searched out work and got a job elsewhere. It was a good work environment.

After working for BCTel I found Convergys work expectations were unequal to the training we received.
Customer Service representative (Former Employee), Lethbridge, ABOctober 7, 2012
Pros: medical/dental coverage
Cons: management issues
We were not given any particular place to sit and were not allowed to keep our instruction books at our desks but had to take them home every night and so our day did not start out smoothly. Sometimes there were not enough head sets to go around and we had to stay away from our desks while we tried to find a station where head sets were available.

Our – more... training was sketchy to begin with and we did not have time to learn on the job

Management were dictatorial and sometimes would stand beside of us and berate us while we were on an open line to a customer.

The hardest part of my job was being switched from one city to another without a moments notice when the billing changed from one city to another. I asked to be left in one city and they refused.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was allowed to stay in one city and talking with customers. I seemed to have a knack for working with customers. – less

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONSeptember 13, 2012
Pros: excellent training, professional environment
Cons: no benefits for customer service reps
I was working with customer service contract for AT&T incoming calls. Excellent training and professional working environment. Managers are under pressure and that is passed down to the floor workers. A lot of management turnover. Overall, a very good company to work for in a call in centre.

productive but dissatisfying
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), New Glasgow, NSAugust 23, 2012
Pros: pays more than minimum wadge
Cons: low paying job
I learn new things everyday at my job. My co-workers are as helpful as they can be. The hardest part of my job is telling the customers something they don't wanna hear. In this line of business the customer is almost never right. I really enjoy speaking with people from all over. Some calls you even get to have a good laugh with the customers!

Metric Driven company
Assistant Team Leader/Trainer/Technician (Former Employee), Ottawa, OntarioAugust 9, 2012
Highly competitive for motivation but was driven entirely on metrics instead of customer satisfaction. This led to clients being pushed off the call after the allotted time, regardless of resolution. Eventually, the client had to choose another supplier of technical support as their customers were unhappy.

Productive work, involving heavy lifting and individual work
Packer (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBJuly 18, 2012
Pros: fun environment, keeps you active
On a work day, you set up station in a small 10ft by 10ft room that has a big dryer/shaker for egg yolks. The machine produces egg yolk and it dumps it into 50lb boxes. so you have to ensure the weight is correct, close up the boxes, and then set it up on pallets. each pallet takes 30 boxes, so you wrap that up with ropes, and you put on labels. once – more... its done you take it to these big heather and you line them up with forklifts to dry further, once thats done you take the boxes to a sampling room, make sure the PH levels are good. and send it to the shipping unit to get shipped overseas. – less
