Collections Specialist (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 5, 2017
It is a small office, you get to know your coworkers and supervisors well, which is great. You get out of the job what you put into it- the harder you work the more money you get in bonuses. Can be a little stressful, management pushes you to meet goals but this is pretty standard for any job. If you work hard and do well there is nothing to worry about. Punctuality is a big deal here, but if you're on time you will have no problems. The hardest part of the job is talking to the customers and identifying fraud but once you have some practice it's much easier. Overall great place to work! They do fun events for all the major holidays, and everyone is friendly!

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 7, 2017
I worked for this company and I wanted to let shed some light on the kind of fake people that work there. Managers, starting from hr all the way up are trash. They are only there for themselves they fake they want to help or care about you doing well. The hours and portfolio arent bad its the vibe that the management creates that an environment where employees arent motivated to work for them. Everyones needs a job, and that what it is a simple dead end job where you have to kiss up to the higher ups to get anywhere. Cut throat environment, i encourage anyone to find out what im talking about, people know the thruth when they hear it!
Gatestone has provided an opportunity to expand and develop knowledge on emerging technologies that have entered the market place over the last 10 years, fro working with AS/400, TCN, SalesForce and LiveVox along with utilizing priority developed software to enhance our ability to drive up profits. The one thing about Gatestone is that it is an ever evolving company that provides continued opportunities to challenge and develop my self on a daily basis.
Collections Representative (Current Employee) – PHX, AZ – February 16, 2017
I have worked for numerous Collection agencies and never worked for one with leadership that cares as much as this. The man said if you show up, show up on time and come in ready to work you will do well! Well I am doing those 3 things and moving up the chain of Command!
Collector I (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – July 25, 2016
DO NOT work for this company! From literally the first day I walked in, I knew the company was trash, but I really needed a job so I tried to stick it out. First of all, the training is done remotely from Canada, and it's horribly ineffective. My biggest reason for this review, though, is I am STILL waiting on a paycheck from 7/15. The payroll department is particularly unsympathetic, saying they would only cancel and reissue a new check IF I PAID THE $30 STOP CHECK FEE! As if it's my fault my check got lost in the mail. Yeah right. The whole company is beyond sleazy and untrustworthy. Also, you have to pay A LOT of money to park. It's at the Arizona center, so if you park there its $12/day, or you can buy an $80 monthly parking pass. For an $10-11/hr job. Let that sink in. I cannot stress enough how badly your time will be wasted working for the garbage company.
won't get 40hr/week, won't get paid on time, expensive parking, horribly high attrition
Fraud Protection (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 14, 2015
We answered incoming calls from customers who wanted to dispute charges on their credit cards, or who lost their cards, or with questions about the products. I learned how to spot fradulent claims and fraud activities and a lot about the banking system. The work environment was very diverse and I loved that.
Lots of over time if you want it
Not very well organized HR Department and not very great managers
Account Protection/Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 26, 2014
learned how to protect customers credit card accounts from fraud. management was very professional and helpful as well as the co workers. The hardest part about the job was telling a customer they where a victim of fraud.

Management changes rules. Told my class that cell phones aren't allowed in class and not two seconds after the vice-president stated that. The trainer checked her messages on her cell. Constant interruptions. Half of the computers do not work. Id's are not complete due disorganized managers. They there were problems and funniest thing was that I can not go by the nickname that I was given at birth but my legal name with no reason given.
