Fun but stressful

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Night shift experience is very stressful. Clients can be rude, and every call escalates to lead representative. No ahifting schedules and no opportunity for career growth

Pros

Free coffee and sleeping quarters

Cons

Night shift

A very competitive but relaxed environment in the work place

Sykes/Sitel is a good company. You will be handled by a professional group of people and will definitely encourage their employees to bring out the best in them.

Good company for people who is just starting their BPO career.

This company is the very first BPO I joined so at first, I was very ecstatic and pleased that I finally landed a job, not to mention it took me only 3-4 days to get the initial interview.

It's been a pretty chill journey with them.

Do not expect a relatively high basic salary from them especially when you are a newbie. What I like is their management, the guards are interactive as well. When it came to processing my clearance, it went smoothly even though it was processed online. I can say they are a highly professional company. Just had to cut my journey short with them due to personal reasons.

Pros

Approachable management, workplace specially the lobby is hotel-like. They are considerate in terms of attendance.

Cons

Average salary offer

Share your experience to help others

It's a great company.

There is an advancement and job security. They've accepted me even if I don't have BPO experience. They provided enough training before putting you on live.

Pros

you have a chance to move forward your career

Cons

it's difficult to have an approved PTO.

Fun workmates

Fun workmates. This was my first job and worked for 1.5 years. It was a great opportunity for me to expose myself in a corporate environment. Learned how to communicate and get to know myself.

Had a really terrible experience. From trainers, down to agents, everyone is rude.

Supervisors are unprofessional. I had a trainer which leaves us hours just to finish his paper works and tells us constantly that there will be an in depth discussion about the subject later on but in the end only 10% (or less) of what we actually do in the production floor were discussed. When I got endorsed to production, I've encountered SMEs who make fun of newbies mistakes in front of us and calling newbies dumb. Really unprofessional. Agents aren't that friendly as well.

Good company but there will always be a better one. You'll acquire a whole lot of new learnings and you'll be able to work with different kinds of people.

They force employees to work on-site.

I've stayed here for almost 2 years, the management is very encouraging. No toxic environment. It's just that they are forcing their employees to work onsite which is not good. The cases are getting worse with variants. I had to resign due to this cause. And one more thing: there's no salary increase even if you have loads of work. Also, no bereavement leave when my lolo died. It was so upsetting.

Pros

Good management

Cons

No bereavement leave, low salary, forces employees to go onsite

Hmmmm lets say its abt monetary moment

It was my first job. I was happy to take it. They gave me a nice dangling monetary moment. Ot was good. But as soon as im regularized salary disputes starts to happen every month, its like youre doing charity work (Just being honest). And the management was toxic.

Pros

Free lunch sometimes

Cons

Long hours

It’s okay

It is okay. It was my first job ever so I honestly didn’t have anything to compare it to. The production floor is usually, what I would consider, a chaos. It was very hard to look for a station. It was hard to discuss some things with the team leader since I rarely see them. The benefits are good. The pay is okay, a bit lower than what I think the employers deserve since it’s a financial account.

Pros

Lots of job opportunities

Cons

Salary could be a bit higher
