It's a customer service call center. For things like warranty problems, customers call this place and you have to help them. You spend 100% of your time on the phone with customers

If you work in a call center you will be micromanaged every second of the day. You will work with systems that are not user friendly, yet you are held to standards of the amount of time you spend with each customer, and there are no breaks between calls. If you get caught trying to take a breather between call where you are cussed out one after another, you get written up or fired. You are tethered to a headset like a dog. The good part is you work inside, there is no chance of getting sunburned, and there is usually a chance of getting some free food. The most succesful people are middle aged women who are computer savvy and have a lot of patience. the average starting pay is $8 or $9 per hour, and most call centers are in areas where the pay is minimum, and they know people are desperate for jobs, kinda like India. Raises are few and usually amount to less than 25 cents. It is good work for those that have few options and can line up like cattle and keep their personal issues at bay.

That's why these call centers locate in places like Glasgow. Everybody is on unemployment so they jump at the chance of a 9 dollar an hour job. They get hired and the conditions and employee treatment and near impossible work requirements are terrible. The employer doesn't care if the employee in and out numbers are huge because they have a lot more right behind the ones who quit to take their place. They got a huge incentive package and many tax breaks for locating here and they will work it to their advantage. I would hate the thought that one misplaced word in a conversation or a jack wad that was pissed off about something even before they called you would be hanging over my head every second that I was at work. They hire people who actually anticipate being fired shortly thereafter. For every person that quits or is fired there will be plenty of others to take their place. Those actions do not count against or affect the incentive package or tax breaks the company received for coming to Barren County. That is a done deal. It sucks that this is the only option offered to Barren County. McDonald's would probably be better to you than this company will. Ever tried to work and accomplish something with a body hovering over you and breathing down your neck ready to pounce at the first chance they get? That's what it is like to work for one of these type places.
