This place has to be in a deal with the DOL. They hired all these people, train them and then no one gets 40 hours a week because they are Seasonal Employees.
Lets see: GSI gets Tax breaks for hiring all these people. The people are OFF unemployment now. They go to work and after a few hours they are sent home because the phones at GSI are not ringing. It is not benificial to the employee who drives 30 - 45 miles to work at the price of gas, to get sent home every day after coming into work for a few hours. GSI will not just give them a whole day to take off, they want you to QUIT, that way you can not get unemployment again because YOU QUIT the job. They still got their Tax Breaks because they hired you and the State looks good because you are now off of unemployment.
So in short: If you go to work for GSI CALL CENTER you get the raw end of the deal.
So before you descide to accept a job at GSI, talk to some of the employees that got hired and are getting screwed everyday.

You've got it right. Only the lucky ones get to keep their jobs and pretend like they are making it. GSI pay is shit, now we're bought out by Ebay things may change. If you need part time work it is the best deal in Brunswick. Not that that is saying much...

I have filed a complaint with the DOL. This company is UNREAL. They have all these people hired but yet send them home after a couple of hours of work and still hire more people. Last week they put 80+ more employees to work just to get them off unemployment and to get the tax breaks that are given to employers that hire someone. Someone said it was $ 5000.00 per person, so they should be doing well for themselves by now. I was hired for seasonal FULL TIME and have not made more than 19 hours in a 2 week period since completing training. What is wrong with this picture.??? So much for them being a fortune 500 company.but I guess it adds up collecting 5k for everyone you get off unemployment and hired and not work them.

they have crazy rules and if you ever need help no one is around so you had better just show up early and make sure you know everything and make sure you make friends with the right people if you want to get any hours cause they will screw you every chance they get I have been told nothing but bad things from the place

First off, for any company hiring in this economy is a great thing. More or less a company that is hiring off the street starting out at $9.25 -$10.00 an hour. So the pay is great since I challenge you to find a job you can get otherwise sitting on your butt in the AC all day. And yes they hire Seasonal employment. However they tell you that up front. So before you whine like a little baby read what you agree to and shut up. Most of the time they keep you anyways if you are worth keeping. If you donít want the job donít take it and shut up, go back to your unemployment and deal with it. That place is super hard to get fired from. You get a first verbal, a second verbal, first written, second written, then a final and after you have completely shown you are either incapable of having a real job or you are illiterate then they let you go. Show me another job that does that.
So in summation: If you are not a whiny brat, and you are ok with good pay, you donít mind doing some actual work that these guys would pass up, and you actually have some manners and are thankful to have a job in this economy, you will obviously surpass others that feel it is beneath them.

I worked at GSI for six months, first as a seasonal and then full-time after the season ended. I knew the pay wasn't great but it was o.k. The people were nice, the supervisors (ARMs and CRMs) were always very helpful and they pretty-much left you alone as long as you followed two basic rules: Show up on time and be nice to the callers. I even went to work one Saturday dressed as "The Dude" from "The Big Lebowski," robe and sunglasses included.
They even let you work from home if you want to. I enjoyed working at GSI and only resigned to accept a more lucrative offer in my chosen profession.

My mom has worked at GSI for 5 years now. She isn't paid an enormous amount but she makes enough to get by. She was hired seasonal and temporary to start. She went in did her job and did not get involved with all the drama. She has survived all of the post peak season lay offs because she was great to the customers and like I said before did not get involved the all the other mess. She likes her position there and does not understand why it is so hard for people to stay with the company. Everyone on here who posted negative things about this company need to step back and re evaluate what happened to you and what the real reason for your dismissal was. Was it adherence? That means you weren't responsible enough to follow a schedule. Your Fault. Stop wallowing in self pity and start posting resumes and get a job.

I can understand the gripe about unemployment but GSI is still one of the best employers in town.

I work for GSI and I dont see where the problem is, I actually working there in this is my first time ever working for them I really don't see what the problem is about the job. I mean its your job to know the information in to also make a great impression they tell you everything you need to do to make it to the end. In if you are good they will keep you your QUALITY REALLY PAYS OFF AT THE END....

How do you apply? I went to the website and couldn't find anything. I don't care for the negative comments, I need a job and I know I'm capable of becoming full time. Anyone?
