Great Company
Central Office Assistant (Former Employee), Florence, KYNovember 21, 2014
Pros: pay was really good
Cons: job security
I learned a lot from this position at Cincinnati Bell, learned leadership skills and how to work on my own without supervision. Handle several accounts for customers and large businesses. Assisted Field Technicians that worked outside that needed help with in the Central Offices.

It was a lot of interesting things about this job and loved working with – more... everyone.
Best thing was being busy throughout the day, running orders and running several buildings. – less

Horrible experience
customer service representative (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHMay 27, 2014
Pros: best pay for work at home jobs
Cons: everything
I worked as a work at home customer service rep. Sales was pushed for every call. We were given the "tools" to perform during training, but we were not trained on everything. Very little training on the cell phone set up and no training on the billing system or transfering numbers from one cell company to CB. The cellular dep. would not do their jobs – more... either, and were located in the Phillipines. They pushed us to sell and set up the DTV for those who don't have true fioptic service. But if a customer was not happy and wanted to cancel their DTV service, we would refer them to DTV, but the DTV kept referring the customer back to CB. This aggravated the customer even more and there was nothing more I could do. The systems used were very slow, and sometimes non-functional, which racks up your call handle time. Appts. would be set, and the service dept. would not show up. They would claim there was no appt. So, the customers would have to wait even longer for their service to be connected. They would change the rules of procedures daily then reprimand when you don't follow the procedure. They would put points against your attendance for their system failures. They would cut your hours down if you were not selling. Missed sales repeatedly so they didn't have to pay on commission when you reached your sales goals. Under doctors care for illness? They force you to take a medical leave and use that attendance against you as well. Sometimes I would get kicked out of the system and couldn't log in. Tech support would tell me I wasn't an employee. This happened on several occassions. Furthermore, they would route my customers to my personal phone line and not my work voicemail! They were not good on updating reps on outages so we could advise our customers properly, and they would never follow through with what was promised to the customers. – less

Not a positive place to work.
Project Manager (Former Employee), Dublin, OHApril 9, 2014
Pros: a paycheck
Cons: almost everthing
Upper management ruled by intimidation and fear. Language was offensive. Management didn't know processes and didn't want to know how -- just do it. Job performance was handled in the open and demeaned the person and upset others. Management style was lacking people skills, understanding and offering proper learning and development. Drinking on company – more... time in the office was common place on Friday's and during Corporate Management meetings. My co-workers struggled through each day and were very stressed. Some cried, some were angry and left to smoke or sit in their cars for a while. The only enjoyable part was 5:00 p.m. and treats that people made and brought in to share. – less

Dont mess up one time or look to be fired without warning
sales (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHMarch 6, 2014
Pros: decent pay
Cons: all the rest
They have a very inferior product with the fiber tv products. They all know its a garbage product and freak out when it does not sell. The word of mouth has killed this product. Would not recommend this company to anyone. You can come in today and be walked out tomorrow. Hope this helps

Good pay
Communications Consultant (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHOctober 3, 2013
Pros: good pay, decent hours, good company
Cons: no job security, constantly changing
Cincinnati Bell has been around for years, and has had its ups and downs. Currently, it seems to be in a down mood with many customers starting to lose hope. Working with the general public, you are bound to have customers who do not necessarily like you, but truth of the matter is that Cincinnati Bell is currently working very hard on taking every – more... chance to improve their Fioptics network. It is a new technology, and there are going to be times where everything does not work, but today's society wants results now, and will not wait for everything to be perfect. I like my job with Cincinnati Bell, and they treat us very well, but with the pay structure there are ways to excel, but if you do not excel Cincinnati Bell will not hesitate to terminate you. Not even for one second. – less

How I felt at Cincinnati Bell
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHJuly 24, 2013
Pros: benefits & starting pay rate
Cons: more of a sales environment than custome service environment
When I first applied it was passed off a customer service job, but it turned out to be more a sales job. I pretty much had to convince customers to keep products they no longer wanted or could afford to keep. I really didn't like that part of the job. The hardest part was convincing customers to keep what they said they could not afford. It was hard – more... not only because I had to finds ways to convince them, but also because it really didn't sit well with me. In some ways depending on what product they kept it truly did save them money, but for the majority that was not the case. Even still the most enjoyable part was again hanging up the phone with a satisfied customer and making the sale, sales were pushed so hard it really didn't seem too much about satisfying the customer. To me that's sad. My co-workers were nice and very helpful. – less
