What Employees Say
I worked at Kobie Marketing for less than a year
The only thing that I would say I like about this job is that you have ALOT of time in between calls. You work with different campaigns and help people redeem rewards. The customer accumulate a... certain amount of points and redeem the point for cash back, gift cards, merchandise, etc. I only work with one campaign and maybe thats why it is extremely slow for me. Most people have a list 2 campaigns but they are still really slow. I was hired through a temp agency Ranstad, which is I believe the only way you can get hired.
We had to do a virtual training because no one at the location I am in knew anything about the campaign that we were going to be taking calls for. There was no one in the room and we had to listen to... a lady talking through the phone which can be a difficult learning experience. It took two weeks for the company to have our badges made. They have a point system so you get 20 points for the whole year. All of their systems run really slow. I have to log out of my computer at least 3 times a day, and have had to have my headset changed out twice already. Managers here are can be messy and will watch your every move like you are a kid.
Advice to Management
More training needed for ALL managers as far as how to handle escalation calls.
I have been working at TransferWise full-time for more than a year
I've worked in at many companies, in many different industries. This is far and away the best place I've worked. We provide a legitimately helpful, beneficial service to our clients, with no downside... to anyone. My colleagues are some of the most intelligent, dynamic, kind people I've ever met. The culture is open, inclusive, not rigid at all.
Every medium-large company has a certain amount of bureaucracy. TransferWise is no different. But it has less of it than I've experienced before. People who need a ton of structure — who... need to be told what to do to do their job — might struggle here. Being a self-starter is rewarded. Also there is not necessarily a steady, prescribed path to moving up. You move up if you do good work, but there's no formula (years + KPIs, for instance) that guarantees it. At least not that I've seen. I actually like that. I understand why some may not.
Advice to Management
Try to keep doing what you're doing.
