Company reviews
"Repetitive, boring, bad if night shift "
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
It was alright in the beginning but the more rules and harder to bonus with every changing platform because more difficult. If you really want to watch a bunch of videos then yes

"Extremely Low Pay with high expectations "
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
I worked for the financial institution. Between systems always being down and stimulus packages rolling out phones were EXTREMELY busy. Training can only provide you with so much and calling the help line is discouraged. For the amount of work and for the strict schedule adherence pay should really be higher.
Pros:
Cons:

"taxing and stressful"
Current EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
getting calls from angry customers all the time training was rushed management is nice and benefits are wonderful coworkers are nice management are worried about scores if scores are to low you can get fired
Pros:
Cons:

"not trained well for position i was put in "
Former EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
this company is horrible they throw you in a position you are not trained for and expect you to know what your doing. you never have anyone you can contact for help. when they help you on slack they don't care that you have a customer waiting they take their time assisting you. this job is a joke they don't take care of their good employees so therefore they have a revolving door of employees
Pros:
Cons:
