Company reviews
"Great place to work if you are not part of customer care"
Former EmployeeCustomer Care Specialist
Customer care leadership is inherently consisting of non-technical people who do not have a structure in the development of policies and their implementations. Typically there are changes to customer care policies that are provided in department meetings, or impromptu emails which the presenters sometimes have not prepared well for and those new policies have documentation errors, creating misunderstandings within the team. The customer care leadership team is not synchronized with the views and goals of the CEO and development team (which are great). There needs to be a change of leadership in order to attain a fully functional and coherent Spokeo team.

"Company perks only Perks"
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
The best thing about the job in my opinion would be the trips, parties and lunch. I enjoyed the bonds that were created between myself and other coworkers.

"Don't do it!"
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
They try to compensate with free food for how terrible they are. Scamming customers and we have to listen to the customers yell and scream. Management has favorites and there's no moving up unless you kiss butt.

"ugh"
Former EmployeeCustomer Support Representative
the worst job I've ever had The website is garbage and their business practices are slimy. Every day I was giving the same tired excuses to angry customers over and over and I could never actually fix their problems because SPOKEO is the problem.
