Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – October 18, 2017
Working for Sirius Xm Radio was a place of employment one would look forward to coming to. The atmosphere was very upbeat and welcoming. the drive of my sales were only expected to continue rising it seemed the more fun we had the more we would transfer those same vibes to the client, would recommend anyone looking to start a career in the telemarketing industry to give Siruis Xm their highest consideration.
no strict attire, interactive games with associates, lots of incentives!
not too much availability for advancement, weekly hours scheduled would vary
The most fun part of this job is that whenever you make a sale you would get to participate in an activity and get an option of a lottery ticket or candy as a little incentive. The managers are trained well on building successful sales associates. The head manager is a bit of a cutt-throat and the overly serious type, but the other managers are nice and caring individuals who are easy to get along with. The pay and benefits are extremely low tier compared to other sales jobs at only 8-9 dollars an hour and then going up by a couple dollars when you reach certain sales goals for the week at a max of $11/hour. benefits are not included in this position.
can space out your break over time instead of all at once.
No benefits offered, low pay, and no job security whatsoever

I spent close to eleven years at Sirius XM and will miss everyone. Sirius gives all their employees the opportunity to grown and advance. I learned and grew immensely both career wise and personally. I would recommend anyone to work for SiriusXM

It's been a while since worked at SXM. When last I was there things were OK. but changes came and they changed fundamental responsibilities for various groups. The compensation and daily work life was pretty good.
Program Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 27, 2017
I loved this internship. I learned a lot about digital media and myself as I was required to learn 3 different sound operating boards with no previous experience in radio. For me, it was interesting to see all the behind the scenes work that goes into promoting a radio medium such as Sirius. The work place environment is very laid back but one is expected to work hard and do their job well. Mistakes could be publicly broadcasted so one has to be very attentive to detail.
This was a telemarketting job. There's no sugarcoating it. The company had a high turnaround rate simply because they had a large pool to draw from.
The training and the job itself were enjoyable. The people I worked with were fantastic, but the management was used to getting a specific amount of dedication from their workforce. Almost no one was in their position for more than 3 months. Those that were were barely trained to do their jobs.
I left due to constant scheduling issues. I would have my schedule confirmed and signed, only to see it change the first shift of the new cycle. It became so horrendous that I missed my youngest brother's chemotherapy.
People, communication skills I learned, and politics of a mismanaged office.
Conflicting scheduling, managers, high turnaround rate.

equipment not reliable but tech staff always on hand and quick to respond..bad location with no easy highway access..in kind of a food desert..cafeteria closes early..great coffee options..free pretzels and soda..management likes to promote from within..flex scheduling can be good and bad

Outbound Sales Representative (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 9, 2017
We always got sent home early due to not having any work to do and that was cutting into my checks and I have a living to do! Somewhat unorganized. Could use new computers and fix up the break room in the building where subway is at etc.
Sales and Activation (Former Employee) – Virginia – April 29, 2016
very low pay considering I have a house and plenty of bills to deal with. the amount of pressure they put on us sales people is unreal. the managers are always on their phones texting when where not allowed too. if you have a doctors appointment about something serious they dont give a dang because they dont accept doctors notes. they will fire you over stupid reasons such as if you have severe Laryngitis and can't even mutter a word. and they keep making up new rules constantly.
