Suggestions for improvement

  • Lower the ridiculous expectations of the call center - you cannot keep people! This job is way too stressful for the pay grade.

What I like about the company

The pay is pretty good and the opportunities to move up can be great. The teammates I have are great.

What I dislike about the company

The contact center has expectations that are very difficult to meet. It is an extremely stressful job without the intense stats you are expected to meet. It is constantly understaffed and yet those that do stick it out are always made to feel like they are not doing good enough. Management needs to lower the expectations if they want to keep good people.
