Customer Support Representative (Former Employee) – Sergeant Bluff, IA – March 2, 2015
A typical day at Stream was basically clock in and get on the phones. Taking calls for Microsoft Accounts and Billing department. I did learn more about Microsoft products and their subscriptions they provided. Management was fine did not really see much of them unless there was a change in policy or if there is an issue with work. I can say the part that was an issue for me was when you needed help with a customer and you could not find it in your resources and asked for help you would have to wait and also keep the customer on hold till you could recieve help. I did enjoy when I could help a customer out and they were satisfied with me.

typical day at work was to answer phone calls at the call center help and assist customers needs and to acknowledge the customers concerns and needs help navigate the website with inbound callers .I would say the hardest part of the job was handling upset customers .the enjoyable part of the job as we could go home knowing that we have helped the customers learn how to navigate and salve the issues

This place is a great entry level job if you need to pay bills, child support, alimony, buy a car, etc.. but it doesn't allow flexiblilty on employees seeking higher education nor did it offer tuition assistance/reimbursement. However, the company did offer online courses called Stream University which in my opinion had some good curriculum to develop techincal skills. The workplace environment was unclean(to my standards) & employees would write words in the bathroom stalls like back in High School. The workplace morale was very low everyone seemed to dislike/hate their job but wouldn't apply for a new job and they kept coming back. The management was decent never really had any problems although some agents reported problems I never had any real problems to complain about - if you do you job & show up on-time everyday then you aviod conflict. The pay was a tad above minimum wage for entry level so you'll probably need a roommate unless you want to be broke at the end of the month. The co-workers were fun & friendly we had great times cracking appropriate jokes about each other & customer calls. The company had it's own cafe & video gaming area which was pretty cool. I worked for the company for 5 years & got laid-off which probably was the best thing that happened to my career because it was really going nowhere & now I'm currently working in a position that has advancement with higher pay and better working conditions.
Decent entry-level pay, online Stream University courses, Full-time(only), Great co-workers & decent management
No tution reimbursement, No real career advancement, No part-time, Un-clean work environment & Low Company Morale among employees

working for time warner cable as a customer support proffesional was a great experience for me with customers over the phone. i learn different things from people attitude and i enjoy my job eventhough some customers call in a get upset with a service, it my goal everyday to be a part of they solutions and provide them a good customer service.
Decent pay for someone starting out, but bad experience overall.

This place is just a mess all in all...management is actually decent, but the co-workers and overall environment suck. Customers you work with treat you badly, but that it to be expected. There are some pretty ridiculous rules you had to follow and the computers would crash regularly. The co-workers were incredibly unprofessional and half the people you worked with smelled like they hadn't taken a shower in a week. I ended up just walking out after a couple months.
Like I stated, the pay is decent for someone with no work experience and as long as you don't have a felony they will hire you. Outside of that, everything about this place is below average.
sometimes hour lunch, pay is ok, they will hire you, management was ok
co-workers, overall environment, unrealistic guidelines, have heard of people being fired for no reason
The people you work with are great. Management leaves alot to be desired.
TIEr 2 Customer Support (Former Employee) – Watertown, NY – December 22, 2012
Worked there for 6 yrs. They don't like to work with you if you need a different schedule. There is way to much favoritism. Working hard really doesn't get you anywhere. You are in the phone for 8 hrs listening to customer complaints. It's worse than high school with the gossip and backstabbing.
Customer Support Representative (Former Employee) – Watertown, NY – October 25, 2012
If you do not mind being on a phone for eight hours to assist with customer inquiries and questions this is a good place to work. The pay rate is competitive for an entry level position and there is some room for advancement. I felt after 3 years on the job that I was over skilled for the pay rate I was receiving so I left to seek new opportunities. This is a great place to learn critical office and communication skills which will are very strong on a resume.
