What are typical collections representative salaries? Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

I LOVE COLLECTIONS BUT FOR THE AMOUNT OF STRESS, SWEARING & ALL I ASK MYSELF WHY DO WE GET PAID SO LITTLE? I MAKE $13 A HOUR & 4% commision. It seems the more you bring in the more they want. The owner of the company i work for to me seems greedy. Owners should take care of their workers then we drive to show them the money. You need to put in to receive.

I think $13 per hour is fairly decent money when all you gotta do is talk on the phone. It doesn't matter that much what you are saying or hearing on the phone. All call-in help desks get the same cursing and swearing. People get just as upset when their cell phone or computer goes down and they have to call for help. What do you think is so special about your phone calls?

My point is that most of what your job involves is just abusing normal decent people anyway so it isn't like it takes a great intelligence to brow beat people over the phone. I have known ten year olds who can do that.

See what I mean there you go posting your negitivity. It depemds on the area you can go to salary.com and see what it brings up. Hopefully, that is information you can use. Here in shreveport you make 10-14 an hour in a call center environment. In Florida for the same company US Support-big no-no to work they make $20.00 an hour for what they pay 12 in shreveport.

There you go categorizing and assuming making an a __ out of yourself. No I am not a groupie, at first I felt sorry and figured you were lonely so you needed entertaimg. No groupies just letting you know take your raceist, negative comments somewhere else.This is suppose to be a place where people can learn, grow and help one another and you like the theif you accused necause they had a felony stole or steal that from people. At first I was upset, iritated and let you still my joy then I thought let me be the professional that I am and see what this person is about. By the by yes I have a job but you can always have more. I read this morning that indeed has a salary chart. I would recommend you use it. If you are looking for more ways to make money use your hobbie. When theings are slow for me because I work from home I will sometimes substitute teach and take my work with me on my planning periods or lunch. Or I love to sew,make candles and knit something grandpa charlie or grandma charlie should do instead of the insults . Hey what about baking in your factory charlie? All that bitter could turn in sweet. I sell alot of stuff on ebay that I don't have use for. Myabe you could get a cooking licence and cater food to come in while you are at woerk to gain extra money. I have been thinking about baking again. Just some food for thougt an extra income. My fiance merchandisers beer for budwiser and works as the director of public relations for two companies on call. He also does sports information systems scoring and stats for local highschool and colleges basketball, football, baseball etc. Just use your mind and be creative.

Well you are assuming that because I am old, that I am sitting here lonely with nothing to do. This is not true. I have my own company and also work at home. Being my own boss, I can take time between working on the thing I am presently designing and write on this forum.

As for the groupie thing, what I mean is that you and two others seem to follow me around the forums and disagree no matter what the subject and even have the audacity to go warning others not to communicate with me. That is sort of the opposite of a groupie who adores the "star" and follows to absorb the entertainment. You are the one who is being negative.

I have posted or been mentioned in about 570 messages on this board and your communications amount to only 140. Most of what you have written is TO me or ABOUT me and all of it has been negative. I refer to you in the sense of a negative groupie as a joke, but there is an element of truth in it. I suggest you go post your own opinions on subjects and stop worrying about me. You have the right to disagree with my opinions but it isn't really proper to go around discussing only me instead of the subjects at hand. Your method lately seems to center upon giving your constructive advice but you always add those little zingers in there directed at me.

I for one enjoy most of Charlies' posts. He can be a LITTLE harsh at times but a lot people need it. They come on the forum asking for jobs but yet can't spell and their grammar is awful. It just opens the door for criticism. Also, just because people apply for jobs and don't get it doesn't make them non existent or that the company is terrible. That just means either your resume had spelling errors like your posts or you weren't right for the position. You are competing with many other people for each position so you won't always get a call for interview or certainly the job.
I am not on here to bash anyone but man some of the postings on here just make me laugh. I have experience, am currently employed and have grammar and speaking skills and I haven't had any luck getting a job to transfer to my home state. It is going to take some of you an awful long time to find employment by saying "i needs a job for money to pays bills." This post isn't for someone looking for a job so that isn't geared towards them. But really, $13 an hour plus commission seems pretty good for calling people and asking for money. Anyone can do that so there is no special skill involved and therefore no reason to pay them more money.

Well I didn't see that comment but if he is racist, again, who cares? Are you going to change him? I don't understand why you are so worried about what he is saying to people. If someone is offended by something he says then let them handle it.

When someone says they can't get a job, their depressed, this that and the other, most people don't want to hear..."Oh it will be ok my friend, just pray and god will take care of it. Keep your head up and keep the faith." Stuff like that is a joke. They need to hear; well let's see, you can't spell, you can't type and you probably don't follow direction...no I can't believe you don't have a job?! At least they would know their faults and work to correct them. Maybe it is as simple as a misspelling in their resume? I for one think it is always good to have the pessimistic view on things too so you aren't fed full of b.s.
Let's ask you this; would you hire someone to work your candle stand that can't speak proper English? Or they can't spell and write up invoices wrong? You will probably say you would give them a chance to prove themselves. Well what if you had 10 other people apply for the job too that could write and speak well? Would you still hire the one who couldn't?

You are correct. I AM harsh at times and for those very reasons.

Speaking of spelling, here is an interesting post from a couple weeks ago. The poster claims to be highly educated with a Master's Degree no less:

Name Withheld said: My problem is that I don't care that I have brought my self down to their level of intelkligence in the south just to bite my tounge get paid to have money to go into business with myself. I don't owe anyone anything and I have nothing to prove

Wonder who that was?

You are exactly spot on with what I believe. You are also right about the military background. Some of the best advice I ever got in life was from a drill Sergeant who was yelling at the top of his voice about one inch from my ear and I learned the discipline to not even move so much as an eyeball while receiving this "advice." :)

In your opinion thats what they need but not mine. I beg to differ. Especially in my case, because I know that Harrahs has a high turnover and they don't treat people right. It says so by examples in the blogs. Of course I would hire someone who couldn't if I had the money to train them. Thats what training and developing is all about and to be human is to error as long as you are learning and improving and helping a company grow.

If that is the case then look at the revenue of the company and present that to your employeer and ask them what can you do to earn the salary in which you desire and think you are worth. Have the evidence to back it up maybe even do it in a report if you don't want to talk.Maybe you have that salary if you add your benefits, commission and base pay together, or do you have stock options too that could be what equals your salary to 42.00 an hour.

I take credit for that post and I don't care what people think especially if they are not helping to pay for the roof over your head, food in your stomach or have your well being at hand. You should never critique someone unless they ask you to and I don't remember being that. Besides I am strong in my faith and I know that only God can judge me. Its not a claim indeed its a fact that is the truth. Again, I am responsibile for my own actions and I know right from wrong Harrah's was wrong and they have a high turnover. Has there been any proof otherwise?

I am judging you on my post alone. I am defensive because of your post and from what I have read I just think there is a better way of telling people things. Then when I went back and read things there are several things I didn't like how you said it. My point is that you should not be so narrow minded and people experience things the way they do. So we agree to disagree when it comes to Harrah's but here is the funny thing-I am not the only one who post their bad experience about Harrahs so I know this one is not me. I also know that although I was born in Oakland, California I lived in the hills and alot of people think that I an shell shocked because I don't have street mentality. I am always looking for the good in people. I just wish you would cvhannel your opinions to be meaningful and not put people down. I know that when others are looking for work they don't need to feel worst like the comment on someone being a theief,. Did they say the reason they had a felony was because they stole something? It is easier to smile then frown and you will live longer with less stress. Had I seen that post I would have agreed with you and recommended Rich Dad poor dad. By Robert K. don't know how to spell his last name. But I didn't you reacted to menot knowingg me and insulting me and telling me what is wrong with me instead of saying this is your experience. Maybe Harrah's is not the right fit for you because of that experience. Or why comment at all when you have no intension of working at or for harrahs? How dare you discret me and judge me.

Are you serious? You would spend your money to train a new employee before you would hire someone who didn't need training and could jump right in the next day and do an excellent job?

That is ridiculous - especially for a simple job of selling candles on the street. You should put up an ad on Indeed jobs and state that the applicants get free training in English as a second language and then deal with the hundreds of responses. Every one you trained would leave as soon as the classes were over.

Yes I would in fact thats the problem with the jobs today you should get some kind of training and ironically you probally could pay someone less than somone more experienced and you could grow together. Ie. how do you get experience with out training? You have to know and be trainied the companys culture unless you can't adapt. I also believe in being able to be resourceful and to only ask when you have exasuted everything else. If someone is already experienced doesn't that give them leeway to come in and take over. There are few people like me for I don't care what a person knows and I am not competive because if you share your knowledge it all bowls down to how you apply what you know.

Oh I am sorry Charlie I was applying that to the person who said they should be making more than the 13 dollars and 4%. If they calculate their benefits, stocks, commission and salary base it prtobally is pretty high and if not then they should go to their employeer to do so or get a second job to make up the difference.

I can see you have not a clue how silly some of your statements sound.

Again, let me see if I understand you correctly...

Taught to not have feelings in the military? Quite the opposite. You are taught to have feelings so strong that they will override your instincts of being a normal feeling person and be able to bring yourself to actually kill another human being if necessary in a war. In my case. thousands of humans as I worked in nuclear weapons.

Then you say you are a nurturing person and yet everything is black and white with no grey. Does that mean a child is either a good kid or a bad one? Is that how you were brought up?

And then things in your world are right or wrong yet spelling words correctly doesn't matter because spelling is something in the grey area?

Then you say we are in the land of the free but I am not allowed to voice my opinion because YOU disagree with it?

And lastly women have a problem with my comments so that means a man cannot have an opinion?

Actually my fiancee and I were discussing that its a catch 22. For my father was bought out of State Farm and their are not too many people like him. He worked with State farm for 32 years and they bought him out. They can pay 10 people salary's with his one because he reached his highest pay. With this its a catch 22 thats why its important to have something else on the side another business. How do you get experience to do the job without experience in a position in other words you go to school to learn but what company actually allows you to apply what you learned in lue of experience especially if they will only take recent grads?

depends on the company you work for reservations in Southwest airlines they match you 7% for 401, and you have stock options. Also HP tech support before they merged with Agilent did too. they even had education reinbursement but these all all things you should find out before you interview with a company. For instance, my fiance does merchandising for Budwiser because it pays good but its manual work and they have a high turnover rate he is salaried and use to making 42,000 his current salary is 30,000 he has the option to get stock options but until he is secure in a second job thats not an option because they money is budgeted for right now. He hates his job but its the best one hes got here in Shreveport and I tell him to be thank ful everyday because he has benefits and he is salaried.

MS. M you are being very irritating and selfish. If you want to discuss things, you simply have to quote the message you are referring to to be understood. It is not fair to just write one message after another and expect everyone else to scroll back and try to figure out what you are referring to.

Take the message quoted here, you talk about $42 per hour and then ask about stock options, benefits, and commission. Since you used the monetary value I said was MY worth according to Salary .com, I assume you are referring to me, yet I have told you I own the company so I own all the profits, the commissions, the benefits, the inventory, and I can take as much or as little from the profits and do with it as I please. Your post just does not make sense and is confusing to anyone who reads it.

The same applies to any other post where no one can tell what you are referring to.

Takes one to know one. Me selfish what ever don't know how to be. I didn't know you have to copy and paste. I just hit reply when I get an email.
If you want to make more in your salary and you are a phone person add your benefits, stocks, commission and see what iyt equals out to it could change from 13.00 to 42.00 if not then ask your boss for a raise.

I see. How much did Marvin make on the Pow Wow? Did she say she was worth $42 or was he making $13 with the stock options added? Was that before the turnover rate increased or after the job fair?

see. How much did Marvin make on the Pow Wow? Marvin didn't make anything on the Pow-Wow. He lost 5,000 but I made 800.00 for the weekend.
Did she say she was worth $42 or was he making $13 with the stock options added? -I didn't say I was worth 42 dollars. The person from Hawiisaid they were 47% underpaid and they should be making 42.00. I said they add stock options, benefits and commission that person's salary should be up to that and if not what can they do to get it add all and make a report to their boss to ask for an increase or find a side business so that they can get the salary they need.

Was that before the turnover rate increased or after the job fair?In 1998 I made 13.00 where I worked at Stanford University. Again it stated almost 10 years ago since my salary was that low. I moved to Louisiana in 2005 July to be exact. In March of 2005 as my resume states I worked in California through a Kelly Temp job making 23.00 an hour. As for my current salary working with Marvin I make 20.00 an hour, with benefits. No stock options as of yet. I do have 401k which I rolled over from Southwest Airlines and from when I taught pre-school in 2001. The job fair was in 2005 for Katrina victims. Is it more clearer. Yes this is a different economy in shreveport they don't have as high of payrates here as the bay area. They say the cost of living is different but its not food is more expensive, insurance is higher, rent is the only lesser and gas. I had never applied to Harrahs until I moved to Louisiana so I knew nothing about their turnover rate until then but in the last two years and being here you can see that they have a high turnover rate by the amount of postings and replys in teh other panels.

I keep getting calls from a company called CCA in Dallas. They called half a dozen times a day and left messages on my machine, not saying who they were or what they wanted. Finally I got tire of it and called them back. They had the wrong freakin' person.

Collection agencies are a collection of the lowest rung of the employment ladder. Not just those doing the grunt work, but their supevisors and managers and all the way to the top. The absolute dregs of society.

Young person, if you can get a job selling cars or pimping on the street, it is a step up.

Call me Charlie in Louisville, Kentucky said: I think $13 per hour is fairly decent money when all you gotta do is talk on the phone. It doesn't matter that much what you are saying or hearing on the phone. All call-in help desks get the same cursing and swearing. People get just as upset when their cell phone or computer goes down and they have to call for help. What do you think is so special about your phone calls?

My point is that most of what your job involves is just abusing normal decent people anyway so it isn't like it takes a great intelligence to brow beat people over the phone. I have known ten year olds who can do that.

I guest to have been on the other side of the phone line. Probably you max out your credit card and never gave a dam about your credit. Their are those that nan't pay because they lost of their job and those that just didn't care. Their are Federal Law that regulate these activities
and $13 per hr I think is not enough Specially in this economy
