Life with Arise is not what you expect
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Florida – April 17, 2017
First time I started with Arise I paid $249 for 8 weeks of unpaid training to work with AT&T. After training for 4 weeks, AT&T cancelled the class. AT&T had had issues with the support end of the class. We were given vouchers for another class of our choice but you had another 4-8 weeks of unpaid training. I would not recommend Arise for anyone wanting full time work unless you pay and train for 2 clients. It just isn't reliable. Some of the best clients that cut back hours for things like school being out but that information is not given when you are looking for clients. I was not aware there were companies that actually had paid training until I did the research. I suggest Convergys, Sykes, AloricaAtHome, Sitel all which pay you during training and you are not an independent contractor. You can still deduct your expenses and have partial paid benefits like health insurance, 401 k, taxes are deducted so it is much easier at tax time. I sincerely suggest checking them out. You also should go to Forbes.com and check out the top 100 work from home companies. Converges is #15 and the others are all listed there but Arise isn't listed. Do your research.
Have to pay anywhere from $75 to $249 for training, not paid during training, no benefits.
