alpine access / hiring
Just to let anyone no who may b considering working for alpine access its an investment. if u hav internet and home phone great. I didnt hav a usb headset so i had to buy one. I spent 20.00 on that radio shack brand the logitec was 40.00. Im on a budget and did not have all that much extra money to spare. I spent 47.00 and ordered a home phone online with a 2.5mm jack to connect the other headset that u need to take calls on. the other phone headset was under 15.00 from target. i paid 45.oo for a background and credit check. I drove my car which is on the verge of breaking down way across town to take the drug test. I had a feeeling my credit was going to be the reason why I wouldnt be hired but i tried it anyway. they start u up with a username and password and telling u ur schedule for training so u dont miss class if u pass drug test and credit check but if u dont pass u jus get an email from the 3rd party company they use to do the c.check and bckground check saying theyre withdrawing employment.
ok so i signed up for fri and sat off and was told n the intervied itd b sun and mon off. i said n a nice way i signd up for fri n sat. he, thas whats available. i sd almost sarcastically oh ok he sd theyre all taken. so i sd ok bc i needed a job n still do but happy i didnt get hired. he askd me if i was gona hav a hard time being avail for the holidays i sd no. i had the sprint collections which i thought it ws cust service it started saying collections when i logged n and saw the title of the job after the interview. u can use a laptop for that client but some like tech support for playstation i think or another game console company and a credit card company client they giv u work for u need a desk top with a lrge screen so if u dont hav it u hav to buy one or tk the positions requiring jus a laptop.
bottom line u need stuff and its an investment. the pay is soooooooooooooo low as well. n real call centers for the work they want u to do u get paid 12.00 and up 10 the lowest. the pro is ur home no commute. i heard about u cant jus go to the bathroom. i wonder if they hav what most call centers have: aftercall to note the account u were jus on for the customer and if u hav to go to the bathroom. i heard they get on u like white on rice thru these forums if u missed something even slightly. ok so i dont no bc i wasnt hired but this is the thing i doubt if by the time school started for me in january i woulda got a schedule change as i didnt c any part time n 1st shift is golden for if u have spent time there as an employee. maybe i would have idk. have good credit tho bc theyre company is not rich. i worked for bank of america just last year and my credits the same: not perfect they hired me. a large worldwide bank. this state wide company did not. y r they being so picky? im returning the headset and getting my 20.00 back. keeping the phone and headset bc i work at live ops where its ok about 14.00 for an hour worth of calls. sometimes its slow tho. it good side money an extra 50-70.00 every 2wks and im not even taking calls liek that so it could b more. i tk about 3hrs of calls /week. the sad part is that the interviewer saw my resume and at the end of the interview sd i knew i was gona hire u after i saw ur resume. well i hav lots of experience its their loss. i no he's tight lol bc he thought he'd hav a good rep on the phones. oh well they r being cheap so theyre losing out on workers and hav the nerve bc the turnover rate is high im sure.
