Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Sherwood, AR – February 4, 2016
\Atypical day at teletech is answering inbound calls with a friendly attitude. I learned how to service people with a smile and not assume without research. My coworkers were fun and always willing to help in my time of need. I really enjoyed the company contests and of course the fun days we would have through out the months.
interacting with different people and being able to help them ive healthier lives
Account Manager/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Kalispell, MT – February 2, 2016
Teletech is overall a great company and takes very good care of their employees. It is definitely a job where you need to have patience, good customer service skills, commutative skills, listening skills, multi tasking skills, and a willingness to progress! Teletech offers great benefits, such as PTO, Wellness hours, maternity leave, insurance that is affordable, and the ability to move up in the company in several different ways! I would not say it is a job you would want to work your whole life, however there are several people that are still working there after 7 years and absolutely love it! It is a very stressful job sometimes, customers constantly calling, some yelling at you for things that are beyond your control. Customers calling that hardly speak English and that are very hard to understand. But as the job progresses and the longer you are there the more you get those customers and the easier it gets to start understanding what their saying. Overall I have enjoyed working for them, but as I get older and after being there for over a year I am ready to branch out and start something new and a different environment.
Good benifits, good pay, opportunity to advance in several ways.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – January 12, 2016
I worked for TeleTech for 2 years which ended when I moved out of state. The job experience that I had while working there is one that I will appreciate for years to come. I had a great time at TeleTech, made alot of good friends and the team leads were just as personable. Yes you had to handle an average of 100 calls a day and you had no idea what to expect from one call to the next but the benefits and perks of being an agent at TeleTech is what made me stay.
Flexible schedules, team work, health benefits, monthly compensation
Besides the insufficient training and lack of upper management support, a typical employee has to endure an increasing workload without increase in pay or ability to advance in the company. My advice to you if you do decide to gain employment here is whatever is said or offered to you, make sure it is in writing and be sure to read the fine print. Management has been known to go back on their word and blame others for these changes. Also be willing to live only for the company as they have no sympathy for your outside family or personal life. I would just avoid this company altogether.
Going home at the end of the day
No advancement in company, Two-faced Management, No raises, Lack of Respect, Recognition, or Support by Management, Inability of Company to be flexible with family life
Home Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Englewood, CO – November 19, 2015
I love working from home. Not having to worry about buying work clothes or putting extra miles and wear on my car, but it's hard to advance from what I have seen in the two times I have worked for Teletech. I have been selected as a seasonal trainer twice and applied for multiple jobs that would advance my career, and yet I have not gotten these regular positions. The pay is less than what othercall centers pay, from my personal experience.
Work from home
Not enough pay, not enough advancement opportunities
Member Service Representative for USAA Bank (Current Employee) – Greeley, CO – October 31, 2015
There are nonstop calls pertaining to the financial concerns mainly of our military for your entire shift. This job teaches you to have empathy and patience for our military who are protecting our freedom. My superiors doors are always open to any concerns that I may have; very approachable. This is the only employers that I have worked for that encourages family members to work side by side which creates a very family oriented company. This job can be extremely emotional because you are usually working with highly stressed military persons, sometimes calling you from the battlefield. At times I can hear explosions and sounds of bullets. The sad part is that often the person calling is only 18 years old. It fills me with great joy that I can be of service to the military.
family oriented, will work with you if you need a day off

There was no job security, people were laid off left and right. You got hired in quickly with benefits, but then after a few months people were let go, so they could hire more temps in. The place always lost contracts, so they would have to lay people off because of that as well.
Customer Support Representative (Former Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – October 11, 2015
On a typical day I work in my home taking inbound calls and assisting customers with product related issues. I have learned quite a lot about how working at home can have it's benefits and downfalls. I would say that the management has been more than fair towards me and are willing to accommodate your schedule to a certain degree. The hardest part of this job is lack of face to face human contact except by phone. At times you desire to see and interact with other people and working from home is very isolate. The most enjoyable part of this job is that I am home, when everyone else is traveling the rush hour traffic, I am at home. I do not have to go out in bad weather, and I am here when my child gets home from school. There are other places that could be worst to work for.
Not having to drive in bad weather, rush hour traffic, being home when my child get in from school.
lack of face to face contact, no steady work, no benefits
TECHNICAL SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE/HELPDESK (Former Employee) – Fairfield, AL – September 23, 2015
Teletech was my first full time job ever. It was truly an experience too. As a call center representative, you learn to adapt quickly to a constantly changing environment.
This job was very stressful on the mind and body as you dealt with customers via telephone interaction. While many were a joy to talk to and work with, there were always a few that challenged your professionalism and tact.
I appreciated this job, because it was the experience needed to hone my ability to work with customers, multitask and development of both patience and great customer service skills. What I learned here helped me become a better employee everywhere else.
great culture, fun coworkers, new experiences, meeting celebrities...on the phone

Home, Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 28, 2015
It's a good start for working at home. However you cannot count on this job to pay the bills. Minimum wage for your state and when it's busy you have to work mandatory hours. Hours can get changed at any given time. When it's slow you get mandatory time off without pay. So you lose lots of hours. You can get MTO everyday if it's slow.
Team leads are very nice and helpful.
Teammates are great once you get to know some people through chat you can develop friendships and it can also be helpful as far as helping each other with work.
Some good discounts, and they offer 401K
Good start to get your feet wet and learn the discipline it takes to work from home.
Good team leads, help, and teammates
MTO, short 10 min break after 4hrs, 30 min break if you work 5 hours or more.
Manager of Enterprise Server Engineering (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – June 22, 2015
STAY AWAY .. well unless you like horrifically poor leadership, radical swings in available funding and project follow through, or seeing your co-workers leave (40+% voluntary attrition in stateside knowledge workers) oh yeah, and they don't believe they are off shoring jobs.. but some how the Philippines staff grows every year while state side jobs disappear.
Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) – Americus, GA – April 21, 2015
During training, I wish it was a little more . Once I got in to production, most days were great. I handled several customers daily. The TLs ( Team Leads - Supervisors) were very heplful. The hardest part of the job was not being able to stay longer.
