Hours are long with not much time to do your own personal things. The salary is also pathetic. Honestly would not recommend merchants. Only good thing is the lively personalities/ colleagues you work with everyday but thats about it.

Working in a new campaign. Staff turnover is very high. Workload does not justify salary. Management only interested in short term solutions but failing

Truly speaking only colleagues make it worthwhile working there, and the fact that jobs are scarce in this country you have to put up with the hand to mouth salary. Employees are undervalued, lower-line managers get demoted time and again. Permanent staff dont have benefits. Management doesn't really know what their employees want. The company provides top class training and experience.

The management was good and so was most of the staff. It is a relaxed and nice atmosphere that everyone loves. There are a lot of incentives for obviously the people that work hard. The hours are not long they are normal call center hours.

Low Salary

Very good company to work for, no growth, I have learnt that everything you want you have to work hard for.

Management was very laid back, no pressure from them.


I had an amazing team and colleagues with good personalities and everyone could get along.


Most enjoyable part of the job was the customers, I just love working in a call center environment.


Hardest part of the job was nothing really, customer service is really easy.
Pros
Free fruit and coffee everyday.
Cons
Long hours and getting home late in transport

Co workers were the best, they made one enjoy their job. Management had an open door policy. Coaching was somewhat a challenge. Providing feedback to agents on their performance and seeing improvements was rewarding.
Pros
Team outings
Cons
Benefits i.e medical aid
