Pays well for a temp job

Customer Service Representative II (Current Employee)
Hillsboro, OR (US)

I have been working at Netflix

ProsPays well for a CSR job.
Is full time immediately.
Two week training adequately prepares you for position.
Nice break area with complementary tea, coffee, fruit.
No dress code. Wear whatever you're comfy in.
Friendly co-workers.
Pleasant work space- comfortable desks, chairs, clean appearance.
Breaks are CSR responsibility. You have a schedule, but you decide whether it's best to go on break or take one more call.
On extremely high call volume days (i.e. server crashes, etc.) managers show appreciation by coming around with a cart of beverages and snacks to keep you going.

ConsWhile you are placed on teams to help you deal with any obscure technical issues that may arise, the teams aren't very supportive or responsive. They love to BS in the chatroom, but when someone asks a real question suddenly it seems like no one is home. On the rare occasions when you do have an escalated call that you can not resolve, supervisors avoid your messages in order to avoid dealing with the dissatisfied customer.

There is very little positive feedback. On days when I did everything correctly - 0% customer dissatisfaction (by survey response), low handle times, etc., the supervisor never said a word. The moment you have a long call that pushes your time up, they call you on it. Regarding any such poor performance: it was very common for embarrassment tactics to be used in response instead of constructive criticism.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind better ways to recognize your good employees. It's disheartening to continually get good stats and never get a pat on the back. The silly workplace contests are nice, but the employees recognize them for what they are.

Get a better system in place for checking in on your supervisors, or a report system. It's frustrating to see your supe getting away with playing games on facebook while you're working like mad.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
