In the early stages of your online application they have you check a box for your minimum pay requirements. I checked $10.50 - $11.00 per hour. It takes about three hours to go through the first round of assessment testing. Then you have an automated "interview" where you answer some questions. This takes about ten minutes, and mind you... there is no contact with a human. It is probably reviewed by a computer to determine in the first 15 seconds of speaking if you can enunciate words or if you are a total mush-mouth.
Then they give you a list of USB headphones and tell you that you must purchase one so you can go through a systems test. I plunked down $50 for this. Then they tell you to sign up for an "offer call" which takes about an hour. There were about 30 people on my call. When they said the offer was for $8.00 an hour you immediately saw people dropping off the teleconference. Instead of immediately hanging up, I watched for about 30 seconds more. When they were down to a handful of people still on the call, I hung up.
This is pure bait and switch. How dare they have you indicate a MINIMUM ACCEPTABLE PAY and then waste many hours of your time and make you incur the expense of buying a headset only to tell you the job is for $8.00 per hour!
What a sleazy operation. I would never think of working for such a company. They just play the numbers game and probably have about a 2% recruitment rate for everybody who applies. Their hope is after spending so many hours of your time and being forced to buy the headset you will feel "invested" in the process and will be so numb you will agree to less than what you clearly stated your minimum was. Of course... you got the blue-sky treatment during the offer call and they made sure they told you how much they love to hire from within.
This is an operation to avoid at all costs as they begin the whole process in what I feel is a fraudulent manner. To top it all off, my computer is not operating properly after all their proprietary software was loaded onto it. Unbelievable!
