It a decent job, but not one you wanna have for long time. The best part of job is the coworkers. The supervisors are helpful, but some of them have an attitude that’s a turn off. They hire people easily and boot them just the same if they don’t meet the goal. If you get in, start looking for something soon, or you'll become miserable.
free lunch sometime, great coworkers, decent office, benefits
repetitive work, out of date call procedures, "competitive" pay, long hours on phone
I have enjoyed working at NCO Financial Inc. I have gained a lot of important working skills from my last 9 years of employment. I have had a lot of promotions where I was a supervisor and the youngest manager of all of NCO Financial Inc (Montreal Branch), thus my review might be a little bias. I must admit the work is very demanding sometimes and can even take a huge toll in your body. However the environment of friendly supervisors/managers and employees is well worth the effort.
Productive, fast paced, service oriented work environment

Inbound Call Rep/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – January 28, 2014
A typical day at work was Taking calls from clients about their cell phone services or products. I learned that I was glad we didn't have sprint or t-mobile in Canada. Management was not helpful or hardly ever available. Co-workers were always horse playing and doing little work. Hardest part of my job was doing more work because other employee's were too busy slacking off. Nothing much was enjoyable about my job at NCO

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – November 6, 2013
In this company I worked for a few contractors, as it is a debt collection/bill payment industry, I was not very fond of the scripted work and the limitations we had as Canadian Service Reps as most of the businesses we contracted for were in America
My recent endeavor with NCO is a rewarding asset added to my professional portfolio. This job enriched me with the understanding of customers in a more diversified manner taking into consideration the consumer interaction, corporate culture an business practices in north America.
Working environment is excellent taking into consideration the Colleagues and Supervisors.
I had fun at NCO Customer Management. It was a challenge that renewed every day to reach my sales goals and I was happy to see that I my sales steadily rose. I loved speaking to the BMO clients across Canada. The sales agents on my team and on the rest of the floor were hardworking people and for the most part, very individual folk with good senses of humor. One of the best things every day was the daily pep talk after lunch. It was informative and entertaining and always put me in a good mood. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with days that were shortened when the campaign ran out of leads.
Fraud Agent/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – August 5, 2013
NCO has a knack for finding and hiring the nicest people, I'm not kidding. I find that most of the employees there are very helpful, considerate and hardworking. The work is very interesting although sometimes a bit complicated as the procedures are often changed. But the work is always interesting. The hardest part of the job can be having to wait when there is not enough work to do on the odd occasion. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to help someone who has been a victim of fraud.
