Surveyor (Former Employee), Toronto,ONAugust 9, 2012
Pros: incentives
Cons: hard to obtain team goals
A typical day of work would consist of calling customers and asking them to do a survey and at the same time meeting a set goal within the team. I learned how to persuade Canadian residents to do the survey in a professional manner. Management was good they we're a little pushy on meeting the team goal. My co-workers were very friendly. The hardest – more... part of the job was meeting the extremely high goal set. The most enjoyable part was the feeling after completing a successful survey. – less

Research Interviewer (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBJuly 30, 2012
Pros: employee rewards such as pizza lunches, pot lucks and 50/50 draws donations going to a charitable cause.
Cons: stress, outbound calling, sitting for long periods.
I feel like the work place is very calm. Your main responsibility is conduction of surveys with absolutely no sales. I did not enjoy that so much. I feel like this is a good position for students. The hours of work are very flexible and your able to choose your own schedule.

Market Research Interviewer (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBJuly 14, 2012
Pros: advancement
Cons: not family-orientated
Made outward calls and conducted interviews via telephone. I learned how to deal with obscene customers in a respectful manner. Worked on a team, and each team member was responsible to excel as best they could. The hardest part of the job was feeling I'd let my team down, when not meeting a quota on time, as not everyone wanted to be interviewed.

Interviewer (Current Employee), Fresno, CASeptember 17, 2014
Pros: job skills, flexible schedule
Cons: sitting all day, when flows dont meet
I clock in 5-10min early and start at 2pm. From 2pm-8pm I dial qualified respondents to conduct research marketing studies. Which allows me to present good social communication skills, productively meet quotas, and improve my technical computer skills.
I have learned all the skill mentioned above and continuously show positive improvement towards my – more... job duties.
The management where I work is nice, flexible and understanding with schedules and I accredit my job skill management to all of my experiences.
I work along side quite a few people and meet new coworkers all the time. The environment in which I work is a positive and friendly atmosphere. I know if or when I have any questions some one is always happy to help me solve my problem.
The hardest part of the job is making my daily flows. Which I try to exceed when I work.
The most enjoyable part is when I finish each study with a happy respondent who thanks me for conducting the study in a professional and respectful manner. I enjoy knowing that when I leave work I have contributed to helping selective studies improve the quality of there poll as well as services. – less
