OK I am a former employee at the Sykes location in Perry Co. Kentucky.
First of all they are not an equal oppurtunity employer. I was blatantly told by a manager that I did not get a promotion because of my ungodly lifestyle.
2. They are mis-billing the client which is Bank Of America for calls that they have not taken.
3. The hiring process is a little messed up there. I am wondering this. How can someone who just came out of training with no prior call center experience be immediately promoted to a Team Manager. Wait this may be because she is the QA Manager's niece. That may have a tiny bit to do with it.
4. They are talking about how they are such a great employer for this area and how they are hiring so many people. They are hiring 100 a month but you have to think of it this way anywhere from 150-190 people quit that month isn't there some reason so many people are leaving this 'good' company.

So, I want to comment really quickly on this, fuck you, fuck the horse you rode in on, fuck all the other little fuckers on here that we hired, showed themselves unreliable and were fired. Do you know why we have such a high turn over rate? We have such a high turn over rate because there are so many people coming in and applying for jobs who will look you in the eye and tell you how hard they work, how bad they need the money, what a good worker they and then they will turn right around and miss 4 days a week, jack around at work, smart off to customers, and take 30 minute breaks instead of the given 15 and hour lunches instead of the 45 and then wonder, huh, why in the hell did they fire me? LOL, it is pathetic to see some of the shit I see come through there. We recently fired a guy for attendance and he was upset and mad and said he was going to post on topix how bad he had been treated and how bad we sucked. I wonder if he also included the part of the story where he missed 36 of the past 57 work days and got caught turning in fake doctorís excuses. No, I bet he came on here and is one of the hundreds who have been fired for some of the same bullshit. Yeah, they will never tell you why they were fired or why things were so rough. We put over a million dollars a month in the economy of the areas we hire from, could you imagine how bad things would be without that money? I know where I would be, I would be nailing my doors shut and moving because I couldnít afford to live on what other companies pay. Do you know why Wal-Mart pays over 8.00 and hour now, do you know why Lowes Pays so well, Do you know why Rent-A-Center pay 9.00 and hour starting out? They pay so much because of the labor competition Sykes bring to the table. How many of you reading this or writing this slander about our company worked for 5.25 an hour at all the above mentioned jobs prior to Sykes coming in. I donít want to hear any shit lies saying those companies already paid that much because I have family who worked there and left for higher pay when Sykes opened. If anything we owe them for what they have brought and given us here. We have a wonderful little part of the world here and I continue to see people prosper. Daily I see people we hired months to years ago come in and they are well dressed and drive nice vehicles. Guess what, these are some of the same people that had to wear the same outfit 2 or 3 times a week to work because that is all they had and these are the same people who had to hitch a ride to work with someone else because they didnít have their own car. People, stress comes with any job. Deal with it, work for what you have and stop moaning, groaning, bitching, and complaining about everything. Get a life and keep your nose out of everyone elseís business.
Line 'em out there general.

In the real world, paychecks and respect are usually best earned-by honest hard WORK.

I use to work there too and that place is all about partying, drugs and who's screwing who that week. If you don't live that kind of lifestyle then don't bother trying to work there. Sure there are a few there that are christians but they are the exception not the norm there.

Almost every wheres i go you have to be 18 or there full, It's not like i don't want to work because i'd love to have a job but it's nearly impossible, for the area i live in. And to get right down to the point, Do i have to be 18 to work at sykes, i have my GED and i can type a little faster than the average person, and i'm also pretty good with computer's. Also I can pass a drug test. Please get back to me on this, Thanks.

Good hard situation - yes, you do have to be at least 18. Just wondering, will you be 18 any time soon? I don't see the harm in applying and they may even call you up once you're of age.
