Who cares who is sleeping with who? You're obviously lacking the skills to get laid.

Yes, if you are qualified. Put your application in online or go to a open house on Tuesdays at 5. Good luck!

lol it doesn't take much to be "qualified". I mean they hire anybody, they even hired somebody who thought it would be a good idea to paint candy all over their car.

Doubt your making too much more than minimum wage. My cousin worked there and she was broke every pay day. She quit. The turn over rate is ridiculous, so what does that say? It sucks.

I know a couple people there that dont have a high school diploma or GED so it must be pretty easy and I understand the requirements to be employed as a collector certainly isn't high- and yeah unfortunately some of those I know don't pay their own bills and one being evicted now but makes a living harassing other on their debts- but a job is a job - these days anyway

I know some peeps that work there to and I can say that they are not making good money. In fact one of them is so broke her old fat self has to live with family. Plus this is her 100th million job so i would agree that it just takes a breathing body to work there. No skill or intelligence needed.

The people who are bitching and claiming anyone can work for PRA, aren't employed there. Imagine that! If PRA will hire anybody, why aren't you working here as well? And $35,000 base pay is damn good money in this economy. Of course, you probably are drawing unemployment because you're too good to only make $12 an hour. That's what's wrong with this world, lazy ass people, who think they're entitled! Well, guess what? You're entitled to get a fucking job and work for what you want! Suck it up and quit your whining and bitching!

I worked there for several years, and when I finally left, it was a huge weight off my shoulders...the place sucks, don't let anybody there fool you. Laws change and it becomes harder to collect money unless you kiss enough ass and they help you out, or if you're black they'll make sure you get taken care of.

what a joke wrote:
To : PRA's finest,
It seems like companies throw the word " manager" around a lot these days. The majority of people who have the title really aren't . They have little to no managerial experience. The title of manager automatically means you'll be a bean counter. You won't actually be managing anything. This happens to be the case with this company also. But hey, you get to be a " manager" of something. That something just so happens to be, trying to force deadbeats who owe everybody and their brother to pay a bill . So you're constantly leaving voice mails or fighting with someone who owes 500.00 to some company you've never heard of. Meanwhile, these people who owe the money probably don't have a job, so they couldn't pay regardless if they wanted to or not. In essence, its a collection agency. That's why the turnover rate is so high. Operations manager? What operation do you manage? Can there be more than one " operations manager? Don't answer those questions, I already know the answer. You're not a manager of anything. If you were, you would have the income to show it. You're a flunkie just like everyone else there.
And I'm sure you know this because you work there? Most managers who start off have "little managerial experience". I'm sure when you started working, you didn't have any experience either, but after a couple of jobs, I bet you inflated your résumé and titles to make yourself look better. Then, you started to acquire the experience to go with the titles. Contrary to your uninformed opinion, most of the people collected on DO have jobs and WANT to pay their bills. They just need help with setting up arrangements. They're not deadbeats. There are a dozen operations managers per building and they manage the "operation" of each team. They make a good income. You sound like someone who was dismissed from the company, however.... Perhaps that's where the anger comes from.

There's an ad every week because not everyone can do collections. It takes a certain mentality to collect and a lot of people are too nice. The majority of people quit because it's too hard to collect or so they think. I have seen people go from failing and turn around to being a star. It all depends on your coach and manager. Making 35k is hard but I have seen reps that made that. There are ten people we know who have made their max bonus every month all year. You get four months worth of chances if you're struggling. I don't know how many companies would do that. Also, they were voted on Forbes Top 50 Best Places to Work. That's voted on by employees and then decided by Forbes. So, I see a lot of people hating, but I would decide for yourself.

Sounds like too many ppl are worried about how other people make their money for a living. You r behind a computer or phone talking mad stuff for no reason i am sure there are more interesting things in life than to be focused on someone else that could give a crap about your opinons. If yall dont like debt collectors stop making bills that u can not pay cause i dont c any other reason why yall would be downing debt collectors it is not their fault ppl dont pay their bills. U should b mad at the ppl who dont pay bills on time if it wasnt for them debt collectors wouldnt b needed. Its so easy to point the finger at someone but u whine and complain an dont do anything about it. An leaving comments on here is not stopping them from going to work to call yo phone to get u to pay your debt!

Guest, you have no clue! I work there currently. I make over $12.50 per hour. I've never missed my goal and I've never had any sexual contact with any manager there. I'm a male and I'm a good collector. My bonus checks are well over $1,000 each month. You don't have to screw anyone to get paying calls, but you do have to show up for work and actually do your job. The high turnover rate is due to idiots not coming to work! Yes, you can be terminated for not meeting 70% of your goal 4 months in 1 year! What other company will allow you to fail 1/3 of the year and not fire you? And if you can't make 70% of your goal, they'll coach and try to help you. Some people just can't do this job, so they're better off finding something else. As far as who's having sex there, that's their business, not mine and Karma will handle that!

You just said it. You are a guy. I have known a few women that worked there. Way different for them.

Ok money wise you make $10-$11/hr I believe. There are benefits (so that gets taken out too). If you collect you get bonus checks.

Now the kicker. You have to pass a criminal check (which you pay for). You have a monthly quota to make. Miss it 4 times I think and you are fired. Problem with making quota is getting the calls that pay. You gotta screw the managers to get those. In this economy people can't pay their bills so you can't get money from people if they don't have it which is why they fire a lot of people. They have a huge turnaround rate.

So it's not bad for a temp job or if you are a slut (biggest slut there is a manager named Joseph he slept with at least 20 girls that worked there).

Personally I'm waiting for someone to wise up get evidence and sue the company for sexual harassment. Considering one of the owners of PRA is Maury Povich (yes that one) there could be a big settlement for someone.
Maury Povich and anybody else who bought stock in PRA could "own" it, and no you don't pay for your own background check, you're an idiot
