Billing Specialist in Work from Home

Typical Call Centre Experience
Working for Eastlink involves a typical call centre experience in that you will find yourself under a lot of pressure from both customers and management to solve problems that are often beyond your control. I work in the Billing Department, and if it seems like they are understaffed, that's because they are. There are only a few dozen of us to handle perhaps thousands of calls on a daily basis. Expect to be yelled at a lot by customers for long wait times as a result.

Customer Care/Sales
Typical call centre environment. And you’re basically just a number . They claim to be a family oriented company . However they are getting as bad as the larger competitors . They don’t care about their employees . Terrible pay , trainers who can’t handle they’re positions . You’re thrown to the wolves with little knowledge . Basically to learn on your own . Mandatory overtime , bid for time off , always gets messed up . There are better jobs that pay more . Keep looking !

Terrible management and HR department. Commissions missing. You don't get paid according to the contract
Job is too demanding, does not allow any flexibility in hours. Mistakes made in payroll not addressed. Commissions not paid accurately. Reps regularly call in sick, management is awful. A lot of complaints from customers as well

Typical call center mentality
Eastlink is a fast paced environment. They only care about sales. Your job is to sell as much as you can in as little time as you can. They don't care about their customers needs. They don't care about a work life balance. They don't care about your mental or even physical health. Everything you do is heavily monitored. If you go to the bathroom too much in a shift you'll be questioned about it. Their management is very poor. They treat their front line workers like dirt. They are often people who have never even worked the front lines and know nothing about the actual ins and outs of the job. Their shifts are all over the place. Overall terrible experience. Do not recommend.
