B.j. has a new con to add to the list. Tbis wont count toward another felony conviction but still fun. She's now found God. Would be good except for the facf, she's a CON. Wonder what's next? Maybe another try for money. Whatever it is will be funny and of course will fail because she's a con and she's crazy.

If ur unable to get employment due to drugs, criminal background, crazy, ugly and have an ugly child, etc. ACT is the place for you. They are always hiring. Can't make it over this week/month? Doesn't matter, the turnover is so bad that they are always hiring and will hire anyone. Can you imagine someone pathetic enough to be fired from such a place? Its ok, give it a few weeks and go back again! It sucks even worse the second time around.

from what i know they start you out at 9 an hr now. even when you go through training.. yes they do pre-drug screening. Some supervisors are better then others from what im told. they each have different teaching skills. Call centers arent for everyone some make it and some dont.

It's not a bad place to work. Were you all are talking about druggies, the only way you would know is if your into that your self.as long as you do your job and come in like your are support to be there isn't a issue. Pay is all that great way first but like any job you sTay awhile you can make up to 10 hr. As a agent. And just stay to yourself. And stay out other people business you will be fine. I've worked there for a over a yr and its a pretty.easy and very chill environment. Come apply and see for ur self but try to get on att side.

I've been there a few years and these are my observations:
*Lee Sturgill is very good at pretending to listen and telling people what they want to hear but he doesn't actually DO anything that matters.
*If ACT paid comparably to the other call centers in this area we'd be able to keep the good employees instead of losing them every time Citi and Centurylink start hiring.
*Too many supervisors play favorites and hold on to unreliable employees because they're friends or feel sorry for the person but if the sup doesn't like you, you better be damned good at your job because you will be fired for any reason they can come up with.
TL; DR ACT could be a good place to work if the people who actually care had the power to make the necessary changes. Unfortunately the people with that power don't care about anything.

This place is horrible. Lee sturgill is an idiot. Collette pierce is a bitch.√Člysse Grass is so stupid, she does not need to be a ops. The whole place is a hell pit. Computers that don't work, furniture that is dirty. They have roaches crawling every where. The trainer sherry is stupid, she trained agents on the ATM project and they came out of class clueless. They will loose Bank of America soon, then hopefully they will close the doors. Go to the other call centers like Citi, Century Link, Sprint or AT&T. The losers of the industry work at ACT.

I forgot to mention that they pay the employees so little that some employees are actually selling credit card numbers on the black market to make a living.

This place is a joke. Highest turnover rate in Johnson City, and they are proud of it. They have men going in rest room and jacking off. HA HA HA, When they come out they make them a supervisor.

I have never in all my years worked at a place so poorly run. Lee is by far the worst excuse for a human being ever. How that total asshole got his job is beyond me. I was dedicated and a top performer. Was praised at every opportunity. Then heaven forbid I got a horrible case of strep. I did the responsible thing. After coming in to work I was told to go straight to the doctor because it was obvious I was unable to work. I was out for four days with a doctors order. Can you guess what happened? Two weeks later i was taken to Lee's office and was screamed at, belittled and told I was one of the worst employees in the division. I am in my 40s and have never been treated so disrespectfully in my life. Of the 26 people who started with me only 4 remained at 90 day mark. They monitor everything, constantly add more scripting while bitching about handle time, hire every pill head off the street and treat everyone especially good people like dirt. My last day only four people showed up that morning. Then the bitching started about the number of people in que. I had had it. 60 people quit in one month yet somehow those of us left were expected to pick up the slack. I will never ever recommend that horrible place to anyone. I walked out and only went back for my final check which had a number of items taken off like a parking sticker I never got, headphones I already had to pay for (yes, you have to buy your own equipment) and my badge which I turned back in. When I complained I was told they would make a note. I wish that place would go completely under and all upper managment and the jokes who own it put in jail.
