Great management within the center and everyone is super great to work with. Scheduling is a challenge at times and some shifts are understaffed. Have gained a lot of customer service experience and new skills like working with new programs and troubleshooting within those programs. But lack of pay, minimum benefits, and unreliably of the computers, systems and programs; though there are upgrades in progress over the long haul. Lack of HR, site director, or It staff on site hurt what is an overall OK place to work.
Worst company ever in all aspects!Payroll was the worst, always had discripencies..Higher ups were under qualified while regular agents were all degree holders. No social distancing was being respected inside the building with the on-going pandemic. Higher job positions are given to people without interviewing candidates.
You will never move up in that place. No pros
Most stressful job. Low wages . Worst mangement the team leads know nothing at all they just come sit watch tv talk and go home if you need any help basically THEY ARE OF NO USE .the operations manager super hopeless female. I mean in short the ENTIRE MANAGEMENT SUCKS TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT U WILL FEEL LIKE running away at once
No pros if you have no life get hired at advantage communications best place than .
Full of useless management who know how to create stress for employees, The only people working hard are the actual agent's who take calls, People other than that are super hopeless useless litterally wasting companies time and money, Thats is the management of advantage communications who gets paid to basically do nothing, Just come to work roam around with coffee, Smoke vape standing outside the building, Or watching shows on the cellphone sitting behind the computer screen at one corner of the office, THE PEOPLE OF MANAGEMENT ARE Bunch of hopeless people
Stressful job from start to finish of a shift, not paid enough for the work you do, does not matter how long you have worked for the company. Very little praise for job you do, rather punish than praise. Any bonuses you get are a joke if you actually get one. You get points to get something on a site but if you quit or are fired then you lose anything you saved up since starting. Management is sub par. Hardest part of the job is putting up with customers who have the right to abuse you verbally without any recourse. Most enjoyable part of the job is going home at the end of your shift.
As a student, it was a very ideal place to work. Very flexible schedule and very good management. I enjoyed my time there. I only left because I was moving otherwise I would've stayed.
Gossip culture, unhealthy. Dirty and bugs in location. Has been spray for bed bugs at least once, possibly twice in past 5 years. If you do not fit into the clique, you will find you are picked on. Always under a microscope. Calls listened to, supervisors always being critical and not offering solutions. Everyone is dating each other or related.New staff makes the same as older staff. Don't expect fair pay. Don't expect a raise. Since starting, at least 3 HR managers have quit, looking to hire 2 more. Since starting most managers have only lasted until three month. Most new jobs are at the other spot, outside of canada.90 percent of staff are there under 2 years.
they will hire anyone

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Advantage Communications?
ACI's overall workplace morale is fantastic. Everyone seems to enjoy their job overall and interacts positively. Management is always open to helping their respective teams and always focused on growth and results. At times, I feel there could be better flexibility in terms of employee's personal needs outside of work, as work/life balance is important.
Flexibility/work life balance needs
I've honestly never worked anywhere in all of my 15 years of working in various places have I received so much positive feedback and compliments about my work ethic and daily duties. It only makes me work that much harder and better and strive to be the best person I can be. The fact that I'm working a Monday-Friday job and getting benefits there really isn't anything more I could ask for.
Health benefits, smoke breaks, diversity
Lot of on my feet
I am on the toughest campaign here. When I started in Nov 2018 I had no clue what I was doing with the campaign I am on. I have worked in 4 different call centres. This is the best one that I have worked in. In the other campaign that I have done it was customer service and sales and very little technical support. The campaign I am on is all technical. I am little older that then other agents on the campaign but they are wonderful when I ask for help. When it is bad weather they will pay for your trip to work and home and free food. The team leads are great too. I only thing I don't like is I have a 40 minute walk everyday
Free lunches trips to work and home in bad weather and amazing people
long walk to work
I have been working for Advantage Communications for 9 years and I still enjoy coming into work everyday. My day is spent assisting a team of agents to reach their work goals, while I achieve goals of my own. I have learned that an organization is only as good as the people that work her. I have learned that change is a big part of my job, encouraging other's as well as myself to always do your best in everything that you do. The management is just like an extended family, they are here for us when we need them the most. The hardest part of my job is to see people not try their best when I know that they have so much more to offer us. The best part of my job is certainly the people that work there, I love going into the center and seeing of those smiling faces. I like that we all work together as a team.
Meeting new people, changes, and how I can go to anyone in our company and they are there for me.
Sometimes there are not enough hours in a day to complete all that I want to do.
Having worked in the Call Centre industry since 2001 at various companies I decidedly would not want to work at another Contact Centre than Advantage. I've worked with several of their clients in various roles and locations, and no matter what role I was in they were always ready to help accommodate my needs and have provided ample room for advancement. From the minute you walk into Reception for your initial interview, you are treated with respect and you are welcomed into the ACI family.
Feeling like a meaningful member of a Team
Can't think of any
