    I have been working at PayPal full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    No training, unorganized, lot of hours, pay not good. Expect us to do costumer service, without having any training! You get a lot of angry costumers because you can't help them with their problems! Nothing works, waiting for sulotions for over 4 months!! Can't do my job properly because auf the problems, so no OTE! No paid extra hours. Nobody to talk to about problems, nobody to help. Sales training for 2 days!!! While the people at PayPal are having 2 months at least. Also the training was only for costumers in other countries so nothing from that works for our clients. Nobody listens about complaines. All you get to hear is that you have to be patient and it will be okay.
