You sit at a desk all day taking phone calls. 100+ phone calls. It is pretty much the same call every time. Very repetitive.

I think it is a good job for someone who can handle sitting all day and does not have an attendance issue. It is coll in the summer and warm in the winter. No manual labor. Most of all it is a job. Has insurance, 401k and etc.

I worked there in 2007. Easiest job I've ever had. The management is pretty anal. I only made $8.50/hr but it was above minimum wage. Benefits after 90 days. You go through like 2 weeks of training before you are out on the floor taking calls. It's a paycheck.

worked there last week. they did a 4 hour training and told us to start taking calls! We had never heard an actual call and no info on what to tell the people, it was a disaster.

most of the temps quit asap. we were told to just stand up and wait for a supervisor if we had a problem. this took upwards of 30 minutes to get a supervisor, most looked and walked on by.

crappy place to work!!!

Any person with an ounce of common sense could have done the job with little training. If you remember there was over 100 temps there as well as regular employees.
If you had an issue getting help from a supervisor you should have said "hey i need help" instead of just standing as they walked by.
Other than that, we were able to take as many bath room breaks as we needed, obviously you didnt need to being that you get a break every 2 hours.
Easiest job a person could have and people are complaining about it. lol
Dont go to mcdonalds if you cant handle lynx!!!

Yes, because "little training" is great with common sense? To the uneducated minions, such as yourself, it would appear to be "easy", if we "easy" were enough.

You see, to be an effective and efficient member of any team, you need an education in what to do, what to say, for every question that arises in normal conversation with customers. Let's just add in a natural disaster, say a hurricane. Some of those people were trained for only an hour and got no help when they asked. If you're so smart, for example, did you help anyone?? I did, lots of them.

There were many temps there and every single one of them that I spoke to said they did not receive sufficient training and had no insurance experience to draw from. Common sense tells you not to touch a hot stove, idiot, not how to handle complicated issues concerning insurance.

The high number of walk-outs should have tipped them off that something was amiss, maybe to actually listen. But, that is what idiots do, not listen. Why don't you just go back to doing your simple, common sense job of filling in blanks. The rest of the people out there want a job that they can feel good about, that they are confident in. Oh and for you, Temp2, I don't want any salt on my fries.

Well you weren't hired in on Regular circumstances, they needed people on the phones as fast as possible & as many as possible due to the catastrophic event that had happened. Tons of people needed help & you were helped as soon as they could get to you. Not to even mention dress codes were not followed, most of you were disrespectful & very inconsiderate of the LYNX employees & management. Left the place Nasty & dirty, smelled of alcohol, slept at the desk and not to mention the smart mouths! You all were given free food every single day & gripped about it! Thank God most of you are gone!!!

No, ya dummy. It is me that is standing up for the regular, ordinary people that just wanted to work. They were tossed into a huge, unorganized mess and expected to do great things, got no help and left hoping for a chance to work elsewhere, where things were better.

You said it was easy for anyone with common sense. I simply corrected you. You probably assumed that everyone got proper training, that means you're ignorant, not stupid. My apologies.

I stated the truth. If you can't handle the truth, then go back to your crack pipe.

Aren't there some young children that you 'ladies' should be supervising? What about some supper for your men?

Seems like the kitchen is empty. Time for you to get back to it. Also, leave the opining for the intelligent men, not you hood rats.
