Yeah, I work there. It's not a bad job. I thought I would enjoy a desk job, but turns out I don't. THe thing I hate worse about the job is I just sit there all day long. They are bad about keeping promises. And they have a stupid script that they require the agents to follow. If you don't follow the script, you get a bad quality score. Even if you helped the customer and the customer was really happy at the end of the call. If you didn't say the script, you get a bad score. Their rules change weekly/monthly. Sometimes even daily.
take my advise

daily? most of the time hourly! i work there also. Frankly i cant stand the job if you can take bitching from customers and bitchings from startek and ATT then put your application in. That job is bullcrap and i cant stand it im about to look for another job its rediculous really and truely it is. But on the other hand there are some really great people there to work with...but i guess its just a job!

There is a bunch of bullcrap at startek. But you're right. It's a job. I've thought about looking for another job also. Bad thing is I know several ppl from factories that got laid off. Jonesboro sucks really bad right now if you're looking for a decent paying job.

CSM is the worst job I've ever had. And I've cleaned toilets at the hospital, worked 3rd shift at a gas station in a bad area, and waitressed. You have to kiss every customers butt all day long no matter what.

However where I worked we didn't have a script and it started out at $10.00 an hour.

Ever heard the expression "don't bite the hand that feeds you"? If you don't like your job, leave it, but quit b!tching about it!!

The threads were removed because full names were mentioned. It is against the terms and conditions of this site to use someone else's name (unless you're saying something nice which isn't too often on Topix). In addition, depending on what you say, it could also be against the law. Libel is a very real charge, as is defammation of character.

Keep it up morons, and losing your job could be the least of your worries.

libel is a real charge IF the statements accused of being so can be proved to be false!!

that is the crappiest place to work ever! i don't think that company will last very long. I worked there almost a year and every time I drive by that place I feel sorry for everyone that works there! My life was a living hell everyday I worked there. I would not waste my time working there. Startek & ATT make promises they can't keep and tell lies! I never knew when I was going to lose my job and I quit and started school so I can have a job that's more secure and better for my health. I was so stressed out every day that my blood pressure was sky high and my doctor threatened to put me on high blood pressure medicine, but I talked her out of it. Since I quit there, my blood pressure has returned to normal! I'm so glad that I got out of there!

my advice: apply stay for the 4 weeks of classroom training and 4 weeks of transition just to goof off on the phones then quit!! by then you will have a general ideal of the BS level of the place w/o the stress factor that develops later!!
