Sales (Current Employee) – New Braunfels, TX – November 5, 2015
Increasing job opportunity to work at home, but no interactive with coworkers. It's a pleasant work environment with emphasis sales through inbound/outbound phone calls. Customers would call in and I would update their information on the computer. Customer would then purchase or not purchase the merchandise being sold to them. The use of the computer and high technology skills were necessary to fulfill the job.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – June 24, 2015
I loved coming into work everyday. You're always greeted with smiles, and everyone is very helpful and after the same goal! Co workers aren't in competition which makes the workplace a positive environment.
Customer Service/Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, Virginia – March 25, 2015
Make outbound calls to alumni to sell tribute book The more calls you make the better chance you hit bonus Little to no management, supervisor contacted via instant message Hardest part was getting someone who has no knowledge of the product to buy Most enjoyable part of job is being able to work from home
fairly new project at the time so allot of set backs

working with harris connect was lots of fun. we would update Alumni students records for the new upcoming Alumni books. The hard part would be to sell the books. They were very expensive books to sell. Most students didn't want to buy, just update. If we wouldn't sell a certain amount of books a week, we would get penalized.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – December 17, 2014
A typical day at HC was busy answering calls and helping customers with updating their biographical profiles. I learned how to use a variety of software programs. The management team was great to work for, they provided a positive work environment. My co-workers were team oriented and pleasant to work with. The hardest part of the job was getting customers to purchase Alumni books and Membership directories due to cost and also due to the social media. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a great group of people.
Harris Connect was one of the best companies that I ever worked for. I was offered a management position within 6 months of employment and even though I was on the phone the majority of time I love interacting with different people
Sales Representative/Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – June 20, 2014
From what I recall, the co-workers and company location was one of the best things that the job offered. Everything else just seemed real negative to me. The training was so-so, and their sales quota were nearly impossible to meet because of the advancement of today's technology, etc.
co-workers, location to home
management, lack of advancement, company metrics, etc.
Who let's you wear shorts to work when it's hot and foosball in the lounge where people can take naps?!
Fundraising Representative (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 23, 2014
I will say I will regret not coming to this company earlier in my career with a call-center. Their pay is very competitive for call center work, you never have to take work home, and management is crazy flexible unless you're an idiot.
I had a late schedule when I asked for it, and 4/10 shift on the publishing and fundraising departments, was allowed and encouraged to provide feedback regularly. The management is overall great, but of course you have your lazy lead or manager now and again.
This place is not clogged up with processes or paperwork, there is an easy attitude, but consistent with staff. There is really not much to even gossip about as the staff vapps indoors, wears jeans all week, and will happily let you work from home if you want...
Admittedly they have a huge shake-up where things got a little insecure about jobs and growth, but it was a strategic streamlining and now they are going to be doubling staff.
My pet peeve is lazy trainers all the way around in all the departments and coaching is a little inconsistent 1x week.
managment is great and comminicates well. very accessible and easy to talk to. fair compensation.
training is horrible, no effort, and they leads don't have any organization or follow though.
Sales Agent (Former Employee) – San Antonio – April 21, 2014
The SA office is great place to work. The entire management staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They are the epitome of professionalism and are always striving to maintain a positive/healthy culture. The sales agent role is just that, you have to sell in order to succeed. The mgmt staff will work with you and will do everything they can to make you a better salesperson/employee. I highly recommend HarrisConnect as an employer.
Good place to work if you are good at making telephone sales.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 19, 2013
I give it an A.
I won the $5000 Harris Connect Grand Opening in San Antonio, TX sales raffle. There were many monetary perks for making top sales. I worked there in 2006 through 2007. Afterwards, I moved back home to Ohio.
My team leader was a very good Team Leader, and is a Senior Sales Manager who I recommend.
pay, benefits, good learning environment, very nice cubicle space, good management, and dependable.
work hour changes due to business fluctuations sometimes with short notice.
