700 is a LOT of jobs! That's great news. So, what does TeleTech do? What product or service are they bringing to the community?

Ok, this is the website where you APPLY for a job with TeleTech. Apparently, it is a telecommunications company. The job openings posted May 30, and they are hiring now for those interested. They are also looking for bi-lingual (Spanish-English) representatives.

"In this position, you'll be fielding questions from customers of Fortune 500 brands. You'll be assigned to an account and have full training on the product or service which you'll be assisting customers with."

I saw two openings. One for English speaking, one for bi-lingual, but I haven't clicked on the links and followed them out yet.

First it was 300, then 500, now 700?!?!? I am all for jobs coming into the area, but this is starting to sound a bit sketchy. I hope it isn't like that fish farm they promised in Crofton that kept wanting money but didn't ever seem to build anything?

Hmm..I didn't know about the 300 and the 500, I just read about the 700 for the first time. I'm in agreement with you. It does sound very fishy. AND, I went throught the application process. The starting pay is over $10 an hour. I would have guessed minimum wage for telephone representatives. Again, something is smelly......

I am pretty sure the earlier news releases said they were opening a call center, so the work will be something like Convergys does in Clarksville. Answering phone calls for companies who don't want to send customer calls to India anymore because it pisses people off.

Yes, that is what I understood. What I don't understand is why businesses don't answer their own phone calls.

I've been told that when you call an American based company and are routed to an overseas representative that you can request to speak to an American. I have done this on numerous occasions. Most of the time, when I do, if it is after hours on or weekends, I am told I'll have to call back during weekday hours. A couple of times I have had to be pretty persuasive that I really wanted to speak with an American as they try to convince me that they can speak English. lol But, most of the time, when I request an American, they transfer me.

I used to work at a call center. Back in the late 90's in a small, rural area a lot like here I started at $7.50/hr and within two months I was making $9.75/hr. I was surprised how good the pay was for a job that took very little work. It was a legitimate job with good benefits though.

Sounds like a crappy low wage job.
