    Pros

    This is a great place if you're looking to begin in the industry, have some knowledge and related experience, but no job specific experience. They had an entry level position available. I was coachable, and they really do have a tremendous system to help you grow as an agent. They also have lots of opportunities for you to grow in leadership. Everything is stats based, but the system is fantastic in letting you know how to grow, getting coached on it, and these details help us provide an extremely professional workforce for our clients which can be many different kinds of companies. I get to become an expert serving the customers of one specific client. One key point I like is that I'm surprised how many women are working with me. It's always welcome to see women anywhere in STEM. They're clearly making an effort to provide an open , welcoming environment, and helping everyone equally build and hone their skills.

    Cons

    There are some sacrifices made when working for a company who provides out-sourced talent. You're probably making less than your analogues who are hired by the client. That said, I'm okay with that. I gladly give that up for the value of opportunity and training to grow in skills and experience. And it's greatly outweighed by the option to grow to leadership roles when you stand out, or maintain connections should someone decide to part for pastures new.

    I worked at Concentrix full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Close to the city. Alternating start times

    Strict, unsupportive management. Salary is well below average of competitors. Salary didn't match the type of work completed.

    I have been working at Concentrix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you work with at the office are professional, capable, and for the most part competent and well-trained, or at least capable of assisting one another. The people overseas you work with are considerably less well-trained, and there is a lot of "fixing their errors" involved in this job. You can work your way to "tier 2" very quickly, but the pay is $0.80 more than Tier 1. Useful for the job title, but if you go from working Tier 2 here you'd be barely qualified to do Tier 1 elsewhere- (heaven help anyone who goes from Tier 2 here to Tier 2 anywhere else.) The Team Leaders are excellent, and the QEs are good people. The ability for chat is handy for when you're stuck and don't have a solution handy with the flowchart. The training modules are pretty comprehensive, if a little poorly fitted to the actual call drivers. In an era where I.T. is flooded with individuals with certifications, this will at least get you some "experience" as Call Centre IT, Installation, or Helpdesk IT. Whatever your route, keep in mind that while it is the bottom of the barrel, it is "experience." You can use it to move on to other roles at other companies, which is probably why their training is no longer the certified type, to prevent further brain drain.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, low upward mobility, lots of cross-training where your job becomes more difficult and busier over time (with zero extra pay). Eventually you "make it" to Tier-2, which is where many people have apparently spent several years. No further pay or positions or advancements are easily available, and they are still likely for less than $1 more. A government-mandated cost of living increase boosted our pay more than advancement at this company. Hours shift around frequently and with no concern for work/life balance. Went weeks back-to-back of starting before 9 AM, to the next week where I'd end after 9 PM. Pretty gruelling on the sleep schedule, makes life difficult to plan social events. "Weekends" shift around without warning, too. Vacations will be slotted out randomly- the company will not grant more than one or two vacation days a week, even if you plan them months in advance. Expect the typical "good idea, good place to work, got big and went public, sold out." You know, links to "rewards" and "prizes" or "competitions" or free little things (fruit boxes, pizza delivered to the work site) and all the little things they used to do when they cared about their employees are gone. They've done their best to hide it, but you occasionally hear employees talk about all kinds of perks that have recently been removed in the name of better profit margins as the company went public. Then, as more and more good things go (so that some MBA can justify their position), you get an email talking about how the stock ticker went up another little bit, just to rub that salt into the wound a little bit deeper. Then you look over to the chat and realise it has gotten awful quiet, the time between calls has gotten razor thin, and a lot of the "old hands" and the more competent and friendly staff members (some of whom have been with CNX for over 10 years) are quietly stepping off the platform, leaving behind the mediocre or even outright incompetent to fill their shoes. You also have a billion ways to screw up and get the pay bonus taken from you, (they do try to make you feel bad about yourself in these performance reviews, even if your stats are way above team or site average). There is no incentive for outperforming or going beyond the metric, which then leads to rewarding mediocrity over excellence.

    I have been working at Concentrix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The business does try to train their management to support its staff properly. It just doesn’t always work. Job is fairly easy to learn and doesn’t require hardly any prior experience If you’re a people person you can excel pretty far.

    Cons

    Payment is minimum wage. This considering the other job oppurtunities around australia with almost identical skill sets, I have been able to earn almost double what they offer here. If your paying peanuts don’t be confused when you are getting only monkeys.

    Pros

    There isn't a lot of pros about this roles that come to mind, but the actual job itself it great interacting with the customers is good its the rules and management that ruin it for the rest. The only good things are the discounts you get for other companies

    Cons

    To start with this company seemed good then you started to notice the true colours and the management side that is what ruins the role. To start they seem like the care about your mental health and they try to support you but then they just start treating you like a primary school child. also doing more work for the same amount of $
