The worst job I ever had

Consumer Associate II (Former Employee)
Allen, TX (US)

I worked at Experian full-time for more than a year

ProsThere are none. It is a terrible place to work

Consinept Team Managers. Pay is terrible. They will hire anyone due to the revolving door, no one stays very long.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay a decent wage, you will get better quality staff. Consider advancing Manager's that actually have had some of management training.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It could be worse.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Experian full-time for more than 8 years

ProsDecent pay & benefits plan; pretty casual dress code; somewhat flexible schedule; family-like environment

ConsMundane work; current hiring freeze places more work the remaining individuals; quite often, there's too much work, and too little resources

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to keep your employees refreshed.

Great, very rewarding super internship

Client Engagement (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Experian part-time for less than a year

ProsNice group of people. Very motivated and wants to do well. Great location in midtown. If you work hard it can be very easy to move up.

ConsWork can get very repetitive. It is all about using the internal tool, which seems to have many setbacks. Should be revamped.

Experian is a great job for recent college graduate!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Experian

ProsExcellent training program. Great benefits. Effective managers. Decent starting salary that will increase in 3 months. Bonuses. Overtime . Friendly and welcoming environment . Beautiful building with gym. Great health benefits!

ConsI love Experian. This job taught me valuable skills that I will use in future job positions. I just didn't like working at a call center so I left. However, Experian really care about their employees. It a great place to work if you love not having your weekends off and love talking to people,

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!
