Reviews - What employees say

Support from management

Poor management

Teamwork

There is no team work. The management doesn't have the time or care to help you

Freedom to work independently

Yeah you work independently due to asking for help from supervisor and they are too busy goofing of in their offices. You send a PM or email and they don't respond. Like I said to busy goofing off and going out for lunches

Internal Communication

Lack of communication from the call center supervisors

Attitude towards older colleagues

You have to ask your coworker for help due to the management is too busy. Thankful your coworkers help without hesitation

Career Development

No career development

Overall compensation for your work

There is non. The pay is terrible

Office / Work Environment

Poor, the supervisors carry on so much and so loud that you can't hear the customers on the other end of the phone

Environmental Friendliness

There's dust that comes out of the vents for the air conditioning and heat units. Everyday you have to dust

Work-Life Balance

You're hired for a specific shift and once you're hired they change your hours on you. They also make you do shift bids which is a crazy since that's NOT what you were hired for. They also mandate you that day to work OT whether or not you have appointments or plans after work

Company Image

Terrible

Job Security

They make you sign a paper if you make a mistake you sign your job away

Challenging Work

It's not challenging it's a customer call and belittle you and managment writes you up for it

Inclusive / Diverse

No diversity

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire ALL supervisors and replace them with new ones that actually care and have time to help employees

What I like about the company

My coworkers

What I dislike about the company

You're so over worked with the accounts that are terrible to deal with and upset customers that cuss at you

Company Culture

The Jay Group is good at "spin" and "talks the talk". They do not "walk the walk"and does not live up to the expectations they set forth. Leadership put into place by nepotism has castrated the company.

Support from management

Upper level management is more concerned with promoting their self interests than supporting their team.

Freedom to work independently

Yes, one of the very few perks.

Internal Communication

Owners/Management do not reveal the true state of the company.

Career Development

The company will tell you that they promote advancement but 1) opportunities rarely exist and 2) when they do, they hire outside of the company to get "fresh blood".

Overall compensation for your work

Wages are very low compared to similar jobs in the SE PA market.

Company Image

Not really. Constant shameless, self promotion of owner is embarrassing.

Job Security

My entire time working for the Jay Group, I never felt that my job was secure. Four different lay offs in an 8 year time frame.

Challenging Work

I was proud of the work I produced and was commended for it. Unfortunately, going above and beyond is not good enough when VP loses two major accounts and needs to reduce work staff by 100+ right before Christmas.

Inclusive / Diverse

There are diverse persons in the workplace but diverse ideas are extinguished. You must agree with management and HR longheld policies or you are marginalized and ultimately laid off as soon as the downward cycle hits- regardless of stellar performance,

Suggestions for improvement

  • New leadership is needed. The (now routine) company trajectory of HIRE/EXPAND and then year or two later REDUCE is not working. Focus on long term client contracts and reward loyal employees that you have not disposed of.

What I like about the company

Relaxed dress code, convenient location

What I dislike about the company

Job security is minimal to non-existent.
