I do not work or have never worked for this company. But I have family that do and most if not all of this documentary is true.

Gonna need cliff notes....do not have 2 hours to waste watching nonsense. The few minutes I could tolerate seemed to boil down to the following:

Big company makes lots of money, structures a work environment that controls work product and employee behavior, and employees are supposedly not happy with their piece of the pie. Did I miss anything?

Yes but its okay. If you feel minimum wage is where it should be, or firing someone due to medical reasons, even lying about your "work structure" to get people in your training classes. And so on....Then the nonsense I posted is not for you. You may move along so we don't waste anymore of your time.

Involuntary servitude ended in this country 150 years ago. No one is forced to work for anyone else.

If people don't like the policies of a company, they can choose not to work for them and/or refuse to purchase their products and services. It's a simple as that.

True it is a choice but looking at it another way.. All of these people left and wanted to speak out. This could be valuable to someone that is currently looking for work and give them a heads up of what could be possible. Think of it as a background check only its on the business your applying for.

I worked at the Springfield call center for six months. I hated every minute of it.

I hope and pray that places either unionizes or shuts down. The sooner it happens the better!

Maybe both. Going union is a great way to shut down a business.

You guys are good for a laugh. What's all this nonsense crying about that they don't pay enough, benefits are bad, working conditions don't give you the warm fuzzies? IT'S A CALL CENTER!! It shouldn't be a career move to work there. Their business model is centered around low pay, low skill, high turnover. If they paid you 20 bucks an hour with good benefits, the companies that outsource to them couldn't afford the service and would just maintain their own call centers.

If you think a company sucks, don't work there. It seems like simple concept, but when you ask these people why they work there you get a pretty standard reply. "It's the only job I could get / was qualified for". And who is to blame for your lot in life, again?

Why? That's a ridiculous statement. He doesn't need to worry about such nonsense, because he has made decisions in his career that have elevated him to such a place as to not do that type of work. What a world you live in, to assume that if somebody else is successful it must have come at the expense of someone else's well-being.
