Has anyone worked for GE call center? (gecallcentercareers.com)
October 8, 2013 at 6:16 PM
I'm seeing their hiring ads constantly. I would like to enquire about the job. But, I don't know anybody to give me an unbiased view. There are a few things that concern me. This company is advertising in an area of high unemployment (above 8%). Also, through online searching, one reply described them as a "slash and burn" organization.

Inquiring about jobs in this area is important. Because of the high unemployment, many jobs are not accommodating, being that employees are very replaceable. And usually, positions that are advertised on tv are hard-to-fill positions. So this really throws a red flag about this company. The last two positions in this area were very short lived, as my longevity persisted in better economic areas.

Q: If anyone has ever worked for a GE call center, what was your experience there?

Thanks in advance

    I haven't but I used to be a human resources manager at a call center. It depends on the company but be prepared to do a two to seven weeks training where you can't miss a day and generally the hours will not be flexible. The hours are often based on seniority, new people in the door don't get he best hours but you might eventually. Very high turn over rate too. If you like to problem solve, be on the phone and can handle being spoken to like a second class citizen, go for it. Depends how desperate you are, I guess. Some people really thrive in a call center and if you're good at sales and can up sell features of products there's money to be made.
