Data Entry/Market Research (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAFebruary 3, 2016
Not enough hours, work wasn't steady. I had to watch my email everyday, all day just to see if I was going to be placed on the schedule and sometimes I had to call in to see if work was available.

You will never get all of your hours most of the time they hire so many new people and dont have enough surveys to cover everyone they will send you home only 2 hours into a 7 hour shift

Very laid back place to work
Telephone Interviewer (Former Employee) –  Springdale, OHSeptember 8, 2015
You learn how to simply get through the day. You meet so many people that are upset you even called them but by the time you get off the phone you may have made a new friend over the phone.
Pros
free coffee, very relaxed schedule
Cons
Short breaks and not always enough hours

older workers were passed over for promotion even though more experienced
Marketing Research Interviewer (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVAugust 7, 2015
No chance of advancements, Company advanced younger workers in order to attract more younger workers. Only 29 hours per week so they wouldn't have to pay benefits some times you didn't get 29 hours and were sent home early with out compension
Cons
low hours and low pay

Outbound phone calls
telephone research interviewer (Current Employee) –  Reno, NVMay 13, 2015
A typical day at work is roughly 100-150 calls per day doing surveys. I have learned patience. The management is very exceptional as they train and work with you after the training and point out where improvement is needed. My co-workers are great to work with. The hardest part of the job to me is the rejection of the respondents when they refuse and hang up.

Sad place to work
Sales Director (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJApril 16, 2015
Company has no direction, new CEO every 3 years. People let go every year. You are watched by upper management everyday. Lunches are not allowed without persecution.

People were very nice. Management was demanding.

Leading in survey results
Interviewer (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHApril 13, 2015
I'd typically be at the office at around 5:30 pm to start my shift and I would be greeted by the fellow happy faces of my co-workers before we have to hop on the phones and get berated by any unhappy person we were unlucky to call. The best part of the job were the different people you interacted with while there in the office. Then the worst part was getting yelled at the whole time during your 5 hour shift and maybe if you're lucky you might interact with someone who is kind towards you over the phone.
Pros
Pay, co-workers
Cons
short breaks, too many rules

Great Jumping off point into Research
Associate (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 13, 2015
Excellent training program for anyone interested in Market research, or research in general. The training program goes over both primary and secondary research skills. You will be exposed to one method more than the other your first six months. Excellent benefits package as well.
