You are a number at best

unrealistic stats, ie 9 min calls for technical issues. 3rd written: fired. written up for things like not meeting 9 min limit, >3 sick days/year. Days off-impossible to get. You could be scheduled anytime during a 12 hour window each day, so your schedule could change every day by 3 1/2 hours. Only warning is as of 5 PM the day before, and you have to check yourself, To see if there have been any changes. Extreme hour reduction in January February and March.

Points positifs

Working from home

Points négatifs

Unrealistic stats.

Horrible Experience

I worked for Sykes for just short of 6 months. It was an easy hire process and interview and I was hired with many people at once. Two weeks of training did not prepare me for the storm of angry customers and lack of knowledge from staff and management. The lack of communication was at a peak and there was no sense of direction or incentive. I took phone calls for Chatr and did billing and tech help. On two incidents I was on the phone with customers for upwards of 2 hours and had to use the washroom. Both were emergency situations and upon putting a customer on hold to do so, I was told by multiple people in management to "hold it in". Both HR and the senior manager had no solution or help for this, taking it as a joke, and made my experience working here extremely uncomfortable and bad to the point where I had to resign. I was micromanaged and not given a chance to be heard or have any impact on the well being of any current and future employees who may incur the same situation as me. It was a good opportunity to work and have a job, but really had an adverse affect on my mental health and drove me to carry negative feelings outside of work. Anybody applying should be aware that this company has many things to work on in terms of communication, management, an basic humans rights (such as using the washroom). Horrible experience.

Points positifs

quick job pick up, work from home

Points négatifs

poor scheduling, no communication, disregard employee complaints

Garbage

This company did not care for its employees, only the bottom line! I asked for help several times as I have a disabled child and they couldn't have cared less!

One of the worst places

The job itself isn't the problem you know the saying "no one quits jobs they quit bosses" Well that was the case here. In my experience as well as a few others who started work around the same time as me, the management team was unsupportive, rude and honestly a little power hungry.

Points positifs

jump offs

Points négatifs

Misuses from employees

Low payment maximum work with a lot of pressure and doing business on employees don’t care about you just their own business. No work life balance, ridiculous

This company is only in it for themselves.

They do not care about your wellbeing. I worked for this company for over 10 years there were no raise, no advancement. Its a great job if you don't care to advance or get paid for what you do.

So glad I left

Worst company I’ve ever worked for. Leaders that would rather watch you fail instead of succeed, company expects you to be a machine instead of an employee, and constant toxic work culture.

Points positifs

Nothing

Points négatifs

Very stressful

Would not do it unless I need money to survive. The pace, requirements, and management don't sync. There is always technical issue and shifts changes frequently based on their needs.

Dont do it

No money is worth working at Sykes.Terrible management, unrealistic goals, unhelpful smeswould not recommend. They don’t care about you or your wellbeing! They don’t care about actually helping customers they just want you to rush through a call and not care and put effort into helping.

Points positifs

The lunch room had biscuits

Points négatifs

No help, unrealistic kpis, cared about your call time more than actually helping the customer.

Not even worth it.

Worked here for almost 5 years. It has put me off of wanting to work in the same field due to the stress from customers, team leaders and the expectations of the company. They want you to sell on every call, even if it’s a 70 year old recent widow canceling their service, they’ll want you to at least pitch a tablet. The stress is nowhere near worth the pay. Shift bids are faulty. They definitely are not flexible and will not work with you.

Work From Home

Very high stress level job, very fast paced, unrealistic goal set by the company, management does not help when needed, no benefit package

Sykes Enterprises is a third-party call centre that takes the calls for sales and customer service for Rogers communications. Sykes Enterprises is a work at home job. Sykes Enterprises puts very very unrealistic goals to their call centre representatives in terms of call time productivity sales offered etc. The management management is not helpful when you have a question they will simply tell you to look at nova document XXX you are then expected to review that nova document and hopefully the manager gave you the right nova document otherwise you need to go back to that manager and explain the situation again. There is no benefits package aside from a slight discount on Rogers products. When your Internet goes out and you are unable to work from home they tell you that you need to have better Internet or you will be terminated, I explained to my manager that I had Rogers high speed Internet and I asked my manager how am I expected to sell a product when it is not good enough to work for the company that sells the product. I never did get a response to that one. Oh yes and if you live in a apartment building and for any reason you need to leave the building I E fire alarm or they are spraying for pests the company expects you to continue working even though you have to leave your apartment. Really would love to know how you’re supposed to work and leave the apartment at the same time…

Points positifs

Able to work from home. Aside from that nothing

Points négatifs

Your day will seem to go on forever, Unrealistic goals for their sales agents, Very high stress level, No benefits, Management does not help

There are much better places to work

I worked here for several months before finding something better. Sykes is terrible. Customers are mostly okay, but some are horrible and you are not allowed to hang up on them, no matter what abuse they are hurling at you. They are a VERY old school type of call centre with strict metrics and a competitive analysis of you and your team is given weekly so you can feel bad about yourself and try to work harder. There is zero concern for employee mental health. If you need a break after a particularly abusive call, you will be told you can have two minutes and not a second longer. You are expected to take calls back to back without a second to breathe. Calls are expected to be brief, and supervisors will encourage you to hang up on elderly customers where the calls take longer. Supervisors will hound you, listening in on every single call if you’re not getting 10’s on all the metrics. This company has a massive turnover rate. They spend 4 weeks training groups, just to have so many quit. I don’t get their mindset. Why not treat the employees a bit better? Be a bit more understanding and give them a little room to breathe? There are many other better call/contact centres to work at.

Points positifs

Work from home.

Points négatifs

Everything else.

Terrible.

Training was ok, however, the “equipment” they sent was pure garbage and I was constantly being kicked out of the training room, which was very frustrating. No mentoring is given before you’re thrown onto the phones, expected to take back to back calls with no breathing time in between. I struggled with this and was publicly laughed at by a supervisor. I quit the day after the training was over. The stress wasn’t worth the low pay.

Points positifs

Work from home

Points négatifs

Hours are terrible

Good

Just like any other call centre sometimes the customers suck plain and simple. If you can't deal with that then this is going to be no difference. work from home is nice and the major reason why I applied. I've been working here for almost 3 years and still employed however changes to the management and constant changes to what we can and cannot do for the customers it does get trying at times.

Points positifs

Work from home

Points négatifs

Heathcare, bad customers, lack support at times.

They seem to be in a hurry to put people to work without adequate training

-a typical day at work- 7 hours shift, answering calls, trouble shooting customer issues- training provided about systems and products is very basic, totally inadequate to handle clients properly.-Salary is minimum wage. -Salary cuts for internet issues even if they were not related to you.

Points positifs

Work from home which saves time and resources

Points négatifs

Low pay, inadequate training and support, salary cuts for internet issues even if they were not related to your service provider
