Could use some improvement in wages and compensation packages
Search Return Agent (Former Employee), Knoxville, TNMay 4, 2015
Pros: work life balance is great
Cons: Poor compensation based on cost of living and industry
Decent company to work for, however the compensation is not up to living standards and they do not offer comprehensive employment package which would include medical, dental and life insurance for their employees.
This company hires for contract employment on W2, but the wages are not competitive when compared to the industry and they do not do well when it comes to advancing the career of their contractors.

Great place to work if you are a go getter
General Contractor (Current Employee), Louisville, TNApril 14, 2015
Pros: good coworkers, salary, environment
Cons: slow in stability and moving up
A very good job for someone needing a job quickly. Very professional area and coworkers are very diverse in thinking, skills and knowledge of life. Hardest part of job is waiting to see if contract will be renewed. Because starting out you are just a contractor. Most enjoyable part of the job is the environment with coworkers and also the unknown meaning you must be able to adapt to change.

Decent company
Warehouse (Former Employee), Des Moines, IowaJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: it was a job
Cons: the hours you are hired for are not guarenteed
The starting pay rate is decent. They are a competitive company. Some workers get by with more then others, so I would say that the rules are not enforced fairly.

Customer Service for Guthy Renker
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Des Moines, IAOctober 22, 2014
The company I worked at was fantastic. All the people I worked with were fun and loving. However, the company I worked for BCForward wasn't really good at relaying information requested or getting back to us in a timely matter.

Poor Management and training
Helpdesk Representative (Former Employee), TexasOctober 20, 2014
Pros: work from home
Cons: training, management, insurance
The initial training I got on site was poor and incomplete. As a "work from home" agent, training was done via chat or conference.
Because I have children I was offered medical insurance, but was never told about the plan, what coverage, copay, in/out patient care I have
When terminated...no documentation was provided, no documentation of any prior counseling was provided

Management only looked at numbers and never the employee.
When mistake were made, Management did not back or support the team member(s), only looked at the bottom line

Productive and positive atmostphere
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FLFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: helping customers
Cons: n/a
A typical day will consist of assisting customers. I learned a lot about the data based used on the job. My co-workers were like family. We helped and supported one another in time of need. The management was organized and professional. The hardest part of the day was trying to complete a lot of calls in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of the day was being able to help customers that had difficult situations.

Staffing company without morals
Accounting (Former Employee), IndianapolisJuly 4, 2013
Pros: not strict on when you come in or leave
Cons: be ready to take work home all the time. when assignment is done, be prepared to find something else.
I worked in the corporate office for 3 years. I could not believe the attitude in office and towards employees out in the field. All upper management and the owner cared about was the bottom line. They don't care about the person or developing good employees. The turnover rate is really high. This isn't a career / life company to work for.

Will never deal with contract agency over the phone again
Data Entry (Former Employee), San AntonioMarch 7, 2013
Pros: dont know - didn't end up working for the client
Cons: the whole hiring process.
I was hired for a data entry position through BCforward. When I went to work my first day, I sat in the client's lobby for 45 minutes before they came out and said they didn't have "approval" for me yet and didn't know why the agency told me to come in that day. That afternoon my rep at BCforward called and said everything was taken care of and to report to work the next morning. Again I showed up and waited in the lobby almost an hour. Finally, my manager came out and said she finally got the approval paperwork through, but again didn't know why BCforward told me to come in that morning because she never spoke with them the afternoon before and still hadn't had approval as of yet. I could tell they weren't expecting me because she took me in the back and was going to have me start sorting mail. I was hired to do data entry! There was nothing in the interview about mail sorting. In my interviews I was told I may be asked to help with scanning sometimes, if they were short handed, but I was hired to do data entry. This was the first time I had gone through a contract agency with everything being done over the phone. I will never do that again. I will only work with local offices in my area. I guess that's what happens when we have let everything in this country get "outsourced" too match of a chance for lack of communication. Be Careful!
