Terrible place using the typical callcenter playbook
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 8 January 2014
They stiff you on bonus by taking away your valid sales that were read verbatim from material provided by them. When explained that I read the entire thing verbatim I was told the material I was given was wrong and was given a "new" set of pages that turned out to be the exact same material.
If you dont sell they send you home. All the top sellers are given inbound queue priority so they set up a pyramid scheme where if you dont sell you get no calls and cant sell and get sent home.
In the hiring process they tell you that you get every other weekend off. Since they were comically overstaffed they decided to change that and you get every other saturday off. Cool but that every other week they keep you working sunday so they make you work 6 days a week every other week but then end up sending you home on your extra day worked. So they have people working more to combat being overstaffed. In what world does this make any sense.
Team managers that sit behind you and talk all day and do zero work. When they finally get around to doing the 5 minutes of work they need to do they yell and complain so loud that you cant even hear your customer on the phone because their spreadsheet was opening slowly.

You had to follow a general script that you were rarely allowed to change up to sell AT&T to customers that had previously left them. The job wasn't easy, but it didn't help that there was often bickering and things happening throughout the office, you could not wear anything scented, so by the end of the day it smelt bad and you had a very confined workspace with uncomfortable chairs, so your back hurt by the end of the night
