If pay is your main concern keep on looking
Remote Services Technician (Current Employee), Redwood City, CANovember 9, 2014
Pros: work from home, convenient
Cons: short breaks, low pay
You work from home which is nice. You avoid the before and after work rush. However when you clock in be prepared to actually work. A slow day at Support.com does not happen too often and when it does you average 10 minutes inbetween calls. They only hire full time for $10.25 an hour (9.75 plus 0.50 reimbursement).

Least technical Tech Support job ever.
Remote Service Technician (Current Employee), Work at homeOctober 10, 2014
Pros: work at home
Cons: soul loss, lack of training for major system changes, etc..
Due to recent changes in how we handle customers (thank you, Comcast) this job is less about actually helping with tech issues and more about providing a voice to the interactive script they give you.

If you've not been working here before the changes I guess it's okay but it's soul wrenching to know you used to be able to actually help people and – more... now that has been ripped away. – less

It was a love/hate relationship
Service Engineer (Former Employee), Utica, NYSeptember 5, 2014
While it started out being a job I completely loved doing, it went consistently downhill. When I was hired, there was a point of pride during the hiring process that the job was a call center but it was "unscripted" and 100% US based. This changed over the course of the following 2 years. More and more scripting requirements were added. Then came the – more... time requirements. Then the mandatory flow charts. Basically turning us from techs into drones reading a computer screen. This all ended with a month and a half straight of promises not to lay anyone off, followed up by a mass conference call that consisted of "At the end of this call you no longer have jobs" followed by a click...and 200 some odd people being kicked out of the system, with no warning at all, no opportunity to grab reference info from supervisors or former supervisors, nothing. – less

Forced Overtime, Lies to Unemployment Offices
Remote Support Technician (Former Employee), Redwood city, CA (remote posisition)August 28, 2014
Pros: work from home
Cons: forced overtime, unsupportive staff, outsourced qa, 'scores' can screw you, etc.
This company looked promising however has been the bane of my existence after a few months in.

All your calls are recorded and the staff that grades your performance is out sourced and don't even speak english... Usually making mistakes and causing you problems.

You must follow the 'flow' the flow is an arbitrary guideline on how to do your job and – more... how to talk to a customer. You are required to show empathy and other things while speaking with a customer, you are also not allowed to actually help them... Most of the calls you get will be saying sorry.. following your flow and either transferring the call (again) or telling them they need to pay for support.

Be aware if you can't get your computer to connect for a few days, you'll be fired.... but you cannot collect unemployment because they'll tell the state you quit and call say you were 'uninterested in working' I filed 4 times and was turned down each time by the state.

Forced overtime is a legal requirement if they start it again, you will be fired if you don't come in on your forced overtime (without any notice).

This company SCREWED me hard. No unemployment, they lied about the conditions I had to leave in. – less

Alright job but they always end horrible
Home Network Specialist (Former Employee), Klamath Falls, ORAugust 14, 2014
Pros: paid training
Cons: forced overtime 50-60 hours /week even if you are a student or parent, bad endings, horrible hr, slow communication (3-7 day turnaround for a reply from anyone except your supervisor).
This is a job that started off decent, however there was a system wide outage, then had some issues; followed IT's instructions on how to fix and they broke their own tools they did not know how to fix it either as they had copy and paste all that was available, I mean this too more than one IT person used the same terms word by word. When I was outside – more... of policy they wanted me to keep working but for free! Yes I mean it; I worked with their IT logged in and ready and trying to fix things 5+ hours a day and they took a week's pay and erased it. Later I filed unemployment and they are trying to fight that saying I left on my own however they said I was terminated because IT could not resolve in a short amount of time and have a letter in writing stating termination; now because of this company I have to fight them with an administrative law judge just to be able to live while I find new work.

Again main point, they are great during hiring and training, average for the main job, but they try to cut all ties and wreck everything in the end. – less

Not a long term job
Remote Services Technician (Former Employee), Youngstown, OHAugust 13, 2014
Pros: work from home, extensive benefits
Cons: work from home, little merit recognition, little chance of promotion/raise, call center job means call center woes
Support.com was good for a while, and I was excited to get to work. I have never gotten to work from home before, so it was a very novel experience. My heart sank quite a bit when I learned I would be basically working for Comcast as a "Teir 3" technician. The customers usually have no idea they are talking to another company, so they give you all the – more... frustration they picked up along the way. There is little recognition for the effort and skill you put into helping a customer, and your score is never decided by the customer and how satisfied they are, but by an overly complicated quality assurance assessment. The disadvantage to working from home is the extreme lack of social interaction; all your communication is mostly a company chat server or e-mail. In all, this job is not something I would recommend long term. The amount of unimaginable frustration versus how much one is paid is not in the employee's favour. Also, do not expect a pay raise or promotion; you will probably never see one. – less

Great place to work if your flexible
Remote Services Tech. (Former Employee), Redwood City, CAAugust 11, 2014
Pros: easy job, great entry level
Cons: pppppppppppaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy
Working here was easy. The pay was low beyond belief but breaking into the IT industry this served as a great starter. I did learn a few things but most things were about the technology in the world we were working with such as connecting a wifi scale to a network. Yes I have had this one. The managers and even the coworkers are fine but the call ques – more... turned into monsters once my tenant Comcast was offered free to customers. While it was a boost for company pay mine did not. – less

Work from home Technical Support
Remote Service Technician (Former Employee), Donald, ORJuly 25, 2014
Pros: learning about new technology
Cons: low pay and the use of my personal computer system that eventually fried before training ended.
Typical day was logging in to the Webinar, and learning in an on-line based classroom environment. I learned a lot of information about how to troubleshoot and support Modem/Router issues from a remote desktop setting. The trainer was awesome, and struck me as the kind of guy I'd like to work with and for at every job. Hardest part of the day was getting – more... everyone to get back from break or lunch, or to just calm down enough to allow the trainer(s) to help other classroom/EIT (Employees in training) to get the tools working and functioning correctly. Learning new information about modems and routers and how they function and the many ways to repair or fix them remotely. – less

Toxic place even for entry level
Remote Service Technician (Former Employee), Redwood City,CAJuly 17, 2014
Pros: no commute
Cons: pretty much everything the company and job stand for
The only "good" thing about working here is being home, if you don't mind not being able to have coworkers. All others aspects of the job are bad, starting with the way the schedules vary, nothing is certain from week to week, when the schedule changes so does your team and supervisor , have been in about 5 teams with different supervisors in the same – more... amount of weeks, The company only cares about that aht ( average handle time) they would rather you finish a call faster than do what you can to help a customer. everything is micromanages down to what time on what day you take a break. The supervisors are next to useless and offer very little to help. As always its better to know someone then to have the know how to resolve customers issues ( think chicks who have nice pics and chat up a storm becoming trainers in a few months vs the techs who know their stuff being assigned to trainers). PTO and "paid holidays" have to be accrued before you can use them, get sick during the month? better hope you have some PTO accrued and even then you will be marked with an unexcused absence. Team meetings happen so rarely its been a few months now since last one I remember , one-one meetings with supervisor are pretty much just to bash you for "poor performance".Honestly if the contracts did not dictate that the workers have to be stateside they would source all the work to India.I would avoid working here if I had to do it over, but then again all the call center jobs are garbage with an incredible turnover rate, good luck with your job hunt. – less

Great Entry level Job
Remote Desktop Technician (Current Employee), Westfield, MAJuly 9, 2014
Pros: work from home, entry level work, great learning experience, great benefits that allow domestic partner to enjoy
Cons: pay is less than substantial, small fish in a big pond
This job is very basic. Though there are many departments, in the Comcast dept, we generally only troubleshoot issues pertaining to wireless networking with devices issued by Comcast and the wireless devices connected to them. It is a great job to get your foot in the door of the IT field. Also a great ob to have while continuing education as on occasion, – more... there is some downtime to study. And generally what I learn in school will help me perform better at work. Though it is completely remote, you get teamed up with other RSTs and have a team leader and you become acquainted with your teams and help each other out via chat. – less

Boring job for mega-introverts plus sketchy software
RST (Former Employee), work from homeJune 13, 2014
Pros: work from home, if this is a pro? a lot of the people who work there seem pretty cool.
Cons: boring, lousy pay and benefits, likely not worth it for most people unless it's your only option for a job
All that matters to this company is metrics and the incentive for having good metrics is not getting a bad schedule. How motivating, right? It's a customer service job and they mislead their new hires into thinking it's something better than it really is. RST position is the most boring job I have ever had. The work from home aspect was OK at first – more... but really not my style either....I need real human interaction and this was very isolating.

Also, the customers were some of the most hateful and brain dead people I have ever encountered. By the way if you think RST is helpdesk or tech support, WRONG. It is a 99% customer service job and it's pretty insulting when you find out they are training you on "what an IP address is, and blah blah blah. The training was a total waste of time but at least I got paid to surf the web and watch movies for a month, later to score 100% on the certification "test".

I just spent about 2 hours removing all the support.com junkware that they have you install after deciding this job was not for me. I won't make this mistake twice. – less

Not a good place if looking for job security
Personal Technology Expert (Former Employee), Redwood City, CAMay 30, 2014
Work started off fine but after one of their major contractors decided they didnt want the high level of support anymore they promised us that we would be moved to a different client. This is not what happened after lying to their entire staff for approximately 2 months they terminated 150+ personnel with no notice.

Job for introverts who enjoy staying home
Remote Service Technician (Current Employee), OnlineApril 22, 2014
Pros: work at home, full benefits, full time, easy, overtime, paid timeoff
Cons: low pay, no promotion.
I think most people or employees who hate this job are those who are not introverts, don't enjoy staying home, expect easy jobs, expect to get paid by making no effort to work, don't have any common sense, computer illiterate even though they have a computer degree, dont know how to follow directions, and have a too big of an ego thinking they're worth – more... more than gold and diamonds.

This job is great with full benefits. Many company rules to abide by only because they company can't meet you in person and you have the benefit of staying home. – less
