I for one will never work there again nor would I recommend the place for the way they handled the whole situation with laying off one month and then "hey we have 100 new jobs for you suckers that are in need." They basically said with the unemployment thing that the former employees are not their problem, there the states problems.

The bottom line is that there is no future in this company and it matters not one iota how great of a rep that you are. The attitude is that there will always be people looking for a job so they just herd in new people and out with the old on a continuing basis.

Its companies like these that obviously do not care at all about the current unemployment rate nor do they even have any regard for the people who indeed take their job seriously and want to advance.

If you really need a job then this is the place to go since it is easy to be hired as long as you're somewhat coherent but don't expect to make this your career since you will be sadly dissapointed and disgruntled.

Place is a joke. No union, run by the good ol' boy system. kiss ass lay low and shut up. Collect your check. They have a point system which is flawed to no end. They stack them up against you by the day. Wouldn't want you to stand a fighting chance @ unemployment when they discard your ass like garbage. With their trusty point system, they have everything they need to drag you through the mud.

I have seen some really nice and intelligent people made out to be and called irresponsible and unwanting of their job, as well as Ignorant, slow (but obedient and docile), people be promoted there. It is common practice to fuck over any and everyone including its customers, clients and employees alike! AVOID THIS PLACE AND KEEP YOUR SANITY AND YOUR SOUL! HOWEVER if you happen to be in tight with someone higher up in there, I say it's a GO!

Big company...run by bigger goons. If this is your only option for employment just do yoursekf a favor and shoot yourself! Its a way less painless way to kill yourself.

Not sure if the people complaining mostly worked on the Verizon side. That side seems to be more of the zoo where they will hire anyone. This is how phone companies operate. Some of the other programs at APAC seem decent. They do drug test pre-employment and if you have an incident or suspect of use on the job as well. They are very strict about being late or no call/no show.

APAC is horrible. I was a rep for a year and a supervisor for two and a trainer for my last year there. They are ALWAYS hiring because the turnover rate is about 80% due to being extremely mismanaged. Beware APAC at all costs if you have any morals(you would be disgusted by the behavior of reps and managers alike).

Friends, let me assure you that APAC is a wonderful employment opportunity. At least for politicians.
Because of their incredible employment swings we're able to hold at least two press conferences a year touting another massive expansion. Conveniently, we ignore the fact that the reason they're "expanding" by 100 jobs is that they contracted by 150 jobs six months ago.
It's the gift that keeps on giving!

APAC is a joke.. they allow their customer service people to yell, swear and hung up customers, because they are not truly APAC customers, they are customers of the companies that hired APAC to do their customer service. APAC has a history of hiring lots of people at once and then 3 to 6 months later they lay off becuase they loose their contracts, due to the poor job in providing customer service....
..besides customer service is a shitty job to begin with. People only call customer service when they are upset (obviously that is what customer service is there for), so as a customer service agent you need to be able to put up with getting yelled and swore at all day, unless you work for APAC then you do all the yelling and swearing until you get laid off...
That is entirely wrong. True they fire quickly but nit that fast unless you really are yelling and hanging up on people. I worked there for 3 years...yes it was horrible and that place is hell on warth, but they arent stupid enough to get a contract with these companies just to give them a bad name in customer service. As much as their employee relations suck, they know how to conduct business and they do it well.
