satisfactory work place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
- long hours with extremely short breaks, when you're even a minute over your break the TL's (supervisors) call you every time - very low pay- fixed schedules that change weekly and you only receive your schedule weekly... making it hard to plan your life outside of work for anything, also strict rules around switching around shifts

Pros

full time hours, remote

Cons

long hours, short breaks, low pay, no flexibility with scheduling, stressful calls, unexpected expectations from tl's/management

My impression of that company.

I find that this company doesn’t care and isn’t supportive for people with disabilities. I have applied many times even though I have worked for them for 3 months last year. If someone wants more training they won’t give it to the person.

Pros

Has contests for the highest sellers every month.

Avoid at all costs it’s not worth the headache

One of the worst and inhumane company in Canada, if you can’t find anything just work there for a while until you find something else. It’s not worth it.

Pros

Free headaches and get cursed at by customers 24/7

Cons

Unorganized management, bad hours, false promises, low pay, HR doesn’t care at all

Not fun at all.

We were hired as billing specialists to help consumers reduce their monthly cost. That could only be done if we sold more services so not great. Consumers were looking to save money and not spend more.

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours, poorly maintained facilities, poor management and coaching and mentoring.

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

No accurate training, 2-3 pictures of the system only and useless things which you do not ever use on floor. But expect stats in the very beginning

In training never talked about plans, unlocking, lowering bills, closing leases .but they expect you to maintain stats and learn things yourself, else they will fire you. it was soooooo much stressful and useless.

Pros

fun SMEs

Cons

everything

Not Recommended (To much stressful)

Will not Recommend too much work load and pay very less stressful job. Training was excellent though . Workload is unbearable for the types of call you get all cold calls. Wanted to Get out ASAP will not come back.

Pros

Training

Cons

Stressful Job

HR and Management are not professional

HR is not approachable, management expectations are impossible to meet. No matter how good you are, there would be no recognition. The supervisors were really nice, though.

Great place to work.

Great place to work, friendly and caring coworkers. Managers are understandign adn alwasy willing to work with you no matter what the sistuation. Trainers work to make sure you are comfortable doing your everyday tasks.

Bad management

Had to leave because a family died, none cared. You can only get a leave when you’re on the top. Was also trying to get an employment letter, emailed them 2 weeks before, HR emailed it to me the day I need it and let me tell you, even a kid can compose what was written there.

Great bosses, great associates, fun and relaxing environment. Easy to deal with customers. Always working equipment. I really enjoyed working for this company and answering questions for customers.

Horrible

They actually treat you like trash. They are extremely unorganized, rude, and underhanded. I am a seventh day adventist meaning I practice my faith on Saturdays and according to my religion working on that day is a no go. I had made this known to my interviewer and was reassured that this would be fine. I was later denied that RIGHT by management. I was then instructed after pushing my argument for 3 months to fill out a “Religious Request Form” and when it came time for approval HR lost my form, yes LOST. To be honest that was only one of my many issue with this company and believe me the list is much longer.

Pros

Overtime is offered

Cons

Operations or Supervising Staff tend to be dodgy to providing help.

You won't get your bonuses.

With select exceptions the management and team leads at S&P St. John's have no idea what they're doing. Many of them are misinformed about the client's procedures and policies. Worse still are the upper management that refuse to engage in the work culture, do not understand the process behind working on the phones and look down on the call center floor. They have little to no experience with the work, and what little experience they may have had seems to have gone out the window the moment they sat down in a management position. Not only this, but the bonus structure is designed in such a way that even 30 seconds of deviance from their expected attendance means that any and all bonuses you earned in the past are null and void - not just attendance bonuses, but customer service ones as well. It's completely unfair and unforgiving, and I have yet to encounter someone who has had their bonuses paid out. There is very little help or support for the agents on the phone, as well. Generally there is a rule that they are supposed to have one support agent for every ten phone agents. At some times I've seen that ratio drop to one for every fifty. It's grueling, punishing work, and the customers are having to wait and receiving terrible service because there is no one around to help when agents need it the most. What support they do have is swamped and rushing and still not able to get the work done because they're splitting themselves among multiple agents. Moreover, there is a policy at the site that does not allow for flexibility of hours. The hours worked are based on tenure - 

Pros

Job culture among agents

Cons

Terrible management, broken promises, no incentives

BELL Outbound

Overall, it’s an okay place to work. You will get write ups over the most uncontrollable things. Favoritism towards certain individuals. Bonuses was off sometimes.

Pros

Make above minimum wage

Cons

Long hours, hr and tl’s are of no help

Friendly environment

Friendly staff, so we can work joyfully. We can learn how to communicate with customers. The hardest part of this job is multitasking and handle customer's behavior. Everything is making easy with good guidance of our team leaders.

ok place

It is an okay place to work but they need to stop changing the way they do things from day to day. They need to be on the same page every single day not change it as a new day comes. makes it hard for agents to keep up and do their job.

Pros

some incentives

Cons

always under pressure as they change things from day to day

S & p

Not a terrible place to be, but disappointed in some of the ways that things were done regarding information about payroll, overtime and hours. Considering the call centre just opened up and we were some of the first agents on the floor, it's understandable that there were some bumps in the road.

Pros

Lots of overtime

Cons

Unorganized/not well informed

Worst place to work at

You great treated like you don't matter, can wait up to 50 minutes to get any type of help, and get fired for trying to find out what areas need improvement

Cons

unpaid breaks, poor management, no support, never get the same answer from anyone

Fast Paced Job

Adequate training supplied and a fun environment to learn and meet new people. Quick conversations with customers and only a few minutes to understand their needs and issues
