Management needs work
Office Manager/Bookkeeper (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLSeptember 13, 2018
Managers need to take a mandatory HR course on how to treat your employees. Belfor needs to get with times and pay their employees fairly. They do not give raises and if you are one of the lucky ones don't expect more than a dollar. This company is a "good ole boy" company. There are NO woman or African Americans in the GM role, only white men who use and abuse the system.
Pros
Co-Workers
Cons
Pay

The environment in the work place is uncomfortable
RESTORATION SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Merrillville, INSeptember 3, 2018
The work environment is uncomfortable, but we have steady work. Co-workers often get into shouting matches with management because there is never a set schedule, and no one cares.

Lonely environment with very little support
Property Restoration - Director of Sales/Marketing (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKAugust 8, 2018
Lack of new hire training, policy procedures and lack of culture. Very focused on hard selling and not interested in allowing successful practices to be implied because that is not the way certain managers do it. Even if the region/state needed to adjust to the culture.

The job is very fast paced and there are always new challenges. Workplace is a little unorganized and not consistent. You do for the most part receive adequate training.

Fast-paced Customer Service
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIJuly 30, 2018
BELFOR is a water, fire, and natural disaster restoration company. the goal of the Customer Service Representative is to listen the caller and quickly assess their need, document the information they provide you, and get it to the on-call who will dispatch an emergency crew to respond.

I was able to learn, for me, the best way of quickly establishing rapport with the callers and BELFOR employees in order to service the needs of the caller as quickly and efficiently as possible.

The culture of the Customer Service Center is relaxed yet professional, and has a good management team willing to stand behind you and provide you the training necessary to perform the job.

The hardest part of the job was during times of natural disaster (wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes and floods) because the call volume was extremely high.

The best part of the job is knowing that you've done everything you can possibly do to provide the best service and to help the caller during a time of need.

Lead Water Mitigation/Fire Damage Specialist (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEJune 23, 2018
Great company to work for, they make it so you can advance in your career, but its just the people who makes you want to walk away. There was too much drama from the employees that work there.
