    I worked at Convergys full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Was hired very quickly. Took a motor exam, then interview. Offered job on the spot, and after a background check and drug screen, I started the Monday following my initial interview. Had a seven week training, hit the show floor, then promoted and took then started another five week training and back to the show floor. Loved the job! Offered great benefits, perks at work provided various discounts on a multitude of items, health/dental/vision benefits, 401k, stock, tuition assistance, cheap cable, and more. Almost set days of work and the site manager had an open door policy as well as a complaint board. Volunteer go home if call flow is slow. And if you have the right Team Leader, it's like a family.

    Cons

    Cons include having a block to start; meaning you can start between certain hours; mine were 10 - 12. I could have a week where I start 1000, 1130, 1030, 1200, and 1115. Have to pay attention to your schedule. Attendance policy is strict, being even one minute counts against you. Team leaders for the most part were inexperienced. I had to take emergency leave; wasn't informed of the whole process, nor was I told about how to return until I was ready; and it took two additional weeks ti return. TL didn't inform me how to take intermittent leave, and didn't do her job when I found out she had to call for days I missed (keep in mind I didn't know at that time that I had to call). Lied about events just to write me up because she didn't like me. Cut corners just to fire me; twice. I pray no one has her as a TL

    I have been working at Convergys full-time

    Pros

    Company has lot of choices in terms of different processes you can apply for.

    Cons

    No scope of growth in terms of salary or on knowledge-base. Management is always looking for ways to deduct employee's income but adding different riders to limit their chances for meeting targets. monthly targets are revised every month on month so agents cannot meet targets and earn more money. Management is lax. agents who do malpractices get away with it even after being reported to Higher management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Convergys full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working at Convergys. The overall company has many good people working for them. I have enjoyed working there due to Management Style and Team Members. Overall they were fair and honest. They have great benefits for you and your family.

    Cons

    Convergys provided 60 day notice to advised they were shutting down their brick and mortar centers in 3 locations in Utah. I believe they could have done more to keep projects moving forward in these locations. Keeping competition healthy in the community. Instead they gave up in the 3 locations. Sad as many good people were forced to move to other companies when they enjoyed working for Convergys.

    I have been working at Convergys full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very relaxed, pay is average, decent schedule, paid training and co workers are generally friendly. They have a point system for tardies/absences.

    Cons

    Pay could be better, computers and software constantly crashing or showing you were late/absent when you weren't and managers take months to get to it fixed.

  8. "Good if you can't get anything else."

    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative II in Tucson, AZ

    I have been working at Convergys part-time

    Pros

    No forced layoffs. No mandatory overtime. Monthly bonus based on attendance, customer feedback and low average call time. Shift stays the same until the next shift bid. You will get your first choice if you perform well. As long as you show up they will work with you, you won't get fired.

    Cons

    Not enough training for either customer service agent or team leaders. Makes it very difficult at first. Low pay. Most customers are nice but there are angry customers every day. System breakdowns. Working holidays. Shift bids mean shift hours change somewhat several times a year based on company needs. They might not offer the shift you have at the next shift bid.

    I worked at Convergys full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The hourly wage is good for this area. The training is very informative and helpful. Lots of time to listen to live calls

    Cons

    Sales quotas on technical support calls is hard when customers are only wanting help. When going over call measurements and coaching, my supervisor only cared about the sales pitching.
