Associate Customer Service Representative in Evansville, IN
on July 26, 2022
Rewarding and challenging work environment with a solid benefits package and room for advancement. Management cares and tries to facilitate work home life balance.

Executives has changed the culture to where the employees don't feel valued. There are many openings in every group as senior and experienced members are leaving, and the higher ups seem to be unwilling to approve more budget to hire more even though the amount of projects have more than doubled.
Customer Service Representative in Houston, TX

I worked here for over 3 years... never again. No work life balance, management is toxic & incompetent, lack of communication across all departments. THOSE SALES! Don't even get me started. They hire based on a lie saying you don't have to sell anything, just promote, then BAM! you hit the floor and they're on your tail about sales saying you have to meet a certain percentage every month while trying to maintain "first call resolution" service (take care of the customer during that one call so they never call back). And NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU SELL, you're not financially compensated for it unless you're hired specifically for tele-sales. All they give everyone else is points that they TAX YOU on when redeemed. What kinda nonsense? They don't know how to pick their poison. The cherry on top is that they DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES. If you're out due to medical issues, they won't text/call to see if you're still alive because, "it is not our obligation to check up on you." I know the pay LOOKS good, especially during these times but IT IS NOT WORTH IT. I could write a BOOK with names and departments and all but even then, that wouldn't be enough to list all the cons about this place.

With Centerpoint you’ll learn what’s required to be out in the field and you’ll get trained appropriately. Overall I’m enjoying my time here and look forward for the future with my time in this company

This is a horrible place to work. Skills and education mean nothing here, all that matters is how and who you brown nose. Not enough sick time. They are charging the non vaccinated for not being vaccinated while those who are vaccinated keep getting sick with COVID.
