This place is hell on earth...lol ive worked there way longer than i thought i would. Only reason i stay is cause i need to finish school before i can quit. Literally hate waking up everyday knowing i have to walk into that work environment. Worst job ive ever had in my life. They always f up my paycheck or rip me off of my bonuses..I get cussed out all day by customers that are the rudest people ever and yet i have to still be nice to them and try to sell them something. And when i dont then i get bitched at by the supv for not making a sell..so thats 2 people in a row yelling at me each time i dont get a sell. This place makes me wanna pull my hair out..Nothing but drug addicts..and i have to work my ass off extra cause of so many people calling in, in my department everyday..plus idk how many times ive watched someone sniff a line of pills off there desk and pass out on the phone...pathetic..btw they do not drug test...This place should be shut down to be honest. or they need to start drug testing and get good employees in there..
ugh I'm worried now, have an interview there

I worked here awhile back and it was great, but now it is a MESS!!!! In training things look AMAZING..you get on the floor and you can't make your 8 and hr until certified, you don't get money for your sales till 90 days! one sup name Stephanie is EVIL!!! she will scream at you, chase you down in the restroom..they talk to you like a child, you are punished like a child!!!
They tell u to keep you talk time down or you will be wrote up, yet they want you to raise your hand and ask for a supervisor to make sure your transfer is legit, and you must make an offer to sale on every single call! the supervisors some are nice but some are sooo mean they can make you cry!

Read for yourself.
A Fall Branch woman has been arrested after allegedly submitting a false police report to her bank, claiming her ATM card was stolen at the scene of a car crash which killed her husband.
An affidavit says that prior to suspicions being raised about the report's validity, the bank refunded her account nearly $4,000; the amount the alleged thief had fraudulently withdrawn. Meanwhile her husband, according to investigators, is still alive, though the couple is estranged.
Barbara Hensley Debusk, 28, of 225 Lovelace Road, Fall Branch, turned herself in Tuesday at the Kingsport Police Department. She is charged with criminal simulation and theft of more than $1,000. An investigation into the case is continuing with additional charges pending.
Police say Debusk's scam was initiated on Feb. 2, when she allegedly sent an accident report to BB&T bank.
The document, purporting to be an official KPD report, relayed that her husband had been killed in a car crash within the city. Her BB&T card was stolen from the scene of the wreck, Debusk allegedly claimed, with the thief later using it to withdraw $3,798.35.
BB&T refunded her account the money, according to police, with Debusk withdrawing approximately $2,300 of those funds on Feb. 17.
Court records say the document Debusk provided the bank was actually a police report from New Hampshire, which she downloaded blank from the Internet then completed

Listen here you employees, Now this is how its going to be. Either you come to work messed up on pills and share, Or you will be dismissed on the spot. Now a fair way to share would be one for you and 3 for your manager. 3 for the manager and 5 for the forman. and the higher up on the command chain the more you have to share. And if your a STAR then you have to share more. meaning if you intend on coming to work, To Work you owe more drugs to managment.

I am currently employeed by ACT, only because I require a job. Luckily I have an off the phone job but I would much rather be an agent at my old job than what I am now. I have worked for ACT several times before. It is difficult, at times, for me to find sufficient employment because not all companies agree with my appearance. ACT will never change. You can't trust anyone there! I worry about getting personal anymore for fear it could be used against me somehow. No matter what there policy states they do discriminate, if you piss off the right person. All in all most of us have worked there and have our horror stories. If you ever decide to go back, because it seems there is no other option or you need a job quick, stay commando and chill under the radar. Don't get personal! You need only to do your job, not make friends.
