FED IRS Call Center: Bilingual CSR I Operations - Remote in Reston, VA
on December 5, 2021
I worked at Maximus for 12 mo. During that time I only received a hand full of meetings and two coaching. Once, they don’t need you they begin checking your calls and making your life missable until you quit…other wise they will fire you. There’s zero coaching. Once, you fail a call that’s when they begin coaching you but it also comes with warnings and write up. After, two warnings and three write ups they’ll terminate your employment.

I enjoyed my time at Maximus Federal. Wish there was a location to transfer to when i had to relocate. Maximus Federal was truly the best job ive ever had.

Maximus has been a great place to work at over the last 6 years. There is a focus on excellence and process improvement. Emphasis on training and professional development is an important part of the culture. Definitely a place you can enjoy working at.

I worked for Maximus for 2+ years. It's a pretty easy/repetitive job. You can listen to music/podcasts with headphones while you work since you're not dealing with consumers directly. It's not a very stressful job once you learn what you're doing and get the hang of it. And if you have questions there are multiple people that can help you. Management is friendly and open. The only real downside is the hourly pay could be better. However, you do get a quarterly bonus 4 times a year that can be $300+ which is nice.
CSR - Customer Service Representative in Riverview, FL

Extremely strict policies, they will not accept doctors notes, get off your desk out of your scheduled break and one of two things can happen, you will get written up or coached, or they will take it out of your paycheck. Management does not care about you. I once saw a girl get terribly shamed in front of her peers from a supervisor because it appeared like her clothing was not up to dress code, which could have been handled MUCH more professionally. The employer coverage is terrible. You won’t move up in the company unless you apply for a position which isn’t bad but good luck getting accepted, and depending on the position you sought after expect to see about a fifty cent wage increase. That’s just the basis of it.

Interview Questions

I went through a temp agency. I think everyone does. Hawkins, AppleOne and MMC Group. They interview you. A very simple interview with basic questions like what are your strengths weakness etc.

To become a trainer for the Census project, the questions were geared to determine virtual facilitation experience and which platforms/methods the applicant used. The were also interested in the tone and inflection of voice and how well your personality translated over the phone.
