    Great benefits

    Friendly upbeat environment
    Everyone dresses super casual
    Great training program

    Cons

    If you are not tech savvy then it may be difficult to adjust. I’m not into computers at all but I had customer service experience and this job is very hard for me. I took the job because I have bills that I have to pay and I needed a job. Some things I understand clearly , however other tech stuff I found hard to catch on to. I had a friend who worked here a year and even she said it was hard the whole year she was there.... but if you catch on to tech savvy stuff quickly ....then you will flourish here

    Advice to Management

    Please offer more study guides during training with exact info that will be on the test because me and a lot of people learn quicker that way

    Pros

    You have an opportunity to learn real skills
    Potential for growth due to legendary turnover
    Show up, do your job, go home.

    Cons

    Selling selling selling. You aren't really support as much as a sales rep trying to pitch new products.
    If you don't sell, you don't have a job. You can be the most technically adept person in the world but you won't make it off the floor.
    Constant turnover means you don't build a sense of team.
    Even for a call center, management is all over the place. Not worth the low pay.
    Everyone is just waiting around for the next round of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    From the small number of long term employees I met, it seems to have been a much better managed and run company before takeovers and constant management shakeups. Look at what worked in the past and try to reproduce that.
