  • Good luck for your interview tomorrow TheWaltons.

    They just ask you a couple of things, tell you a bit about it and ask what shift you want to work.

    They said to me the shift was 12pm-4pm, but I think this is american time as when I received a confirmation email it had 6pm-10pm.

    Can't wait to get started now!!

    I've applied for this too and got an email through to do the PC test. Just wondering - do they have more than 20 hours per week available? I'm currently working in a call centre and would have to leave that job due to regular late and weekend shifts, in order to work from home and could really do with 30+ hours.

    Sorry to be dim, but if this company is in the states, there's no problem with wages, is there? and how many hours can you do,part - time? And what abt school hols, with kids at home?

    Teletech have three uk call centers and a uk office,
    I think it's just because the @home thing is new their
    using the HR staff who have been running the US @home

    Well the kids thing has to be a factor if you want to go for the
    job, they make it very clear you must have a noise free workplace
    which you can understand really,

    Overtime may be a option occasionally but not guaranteed

    seems to be evening shifts? no good for me then.
  • So we are handling American customers?

    Are they going to make jokes about us, the way we do about Indian call centres? :eek: :D

    I can do 7-11 shifts no problem, if they want a noise free background!

    What were the other options?

    Now I presume this is on PAYE?
  • Im not sure what customers we will deal with. I wondered this but forgot to ask.

    The only option I was given was 6-10 SMTWT or 6-10 TFSSM.

    It is on PAYE, paid every fortnight.

    Oh no.. I would need to move my PC and get my kids into bed at 5:30am to do that shift!!!


    It must be US callers... I don't know of many call centres in this uk open 24/7... could be wrong.

    Is this like some call centre jobs, where you get switched around Projects.. for example.. I used to work SonyEricsson but could be passed over to Vodafone etc ?

    They are taking staff for Broadband tech support so it will
    be uk customers, .

    You can check when they call you the waltons but i am 99%

  • Hi guys, I passed the computer spec test and got the email advising me that the workbooth cd is on its way. Did you guys get the phone call before or after the cd arrived, as of yet I have had no phone call.... ?

    Cheers.
    Eeee by gum, does your belly touch your bum ? :p
