      Pros

      Work from home (for now) really doesn't want to require brain work and they could be a bit lenient with some things

      Cons

      You only get paid minimum wage. You have to meet rates which really require so much effort every time. Get used to people hanging up the phone and yelling at you sometimes. They're tooo strict with their office. Monitored bathroom breaks and 15 minute breaks on the dot for 5-hour shifts.

      Pros

      They allowed us to work from home following a lockdown during covid

      Cons

      They keep a deposit from your first paycheque that they try to keep if you don't give them two weeks notice. This is illegal and they have lost numerous times in court because of this. Hardly any training and the interview really is just to check if you can read/speak english to their liking

      they're alright

      Pros

      it's alright if your comfortable on the phone and okay with being rejecting on a daily basis. Very simple, feel like anyone could do it. If your lucky you'll get to work from home, which makes it a lot more tolerable. Eventually you'll get sick of it and move onto to something else, but it's solid experience if your young, would recommend giving it a shot just to put some basic skills on your resume.

      Cons

      some people on the phone aren't very nice, eventually you'll get over it. If you don't meet quota's, regardless of how ridiculous the project is, you'll have your shift's reduced pretty significantly, although I never really came across this problem. If the whole team is doing bad on a project, and the company who contracted the project complains, expect frequent confrence calls and crtisims from team leaders; most times it isn't really your fault either, most people just don't have time for these types of calls.
