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
telephone research interviewer (Current Employee) – Reno, NV – May 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.

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.

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.
