Please AVOID, the job is stressful, the people are unhelpful, everybody passes the book, they send the Indians home to work with no support and pay the managers 100% for doing nothing. The customers are all bad tempered and shouting not knowing what’s going on and the targets!,well I hope you can jump through some very small hoops. Get any other job but this please unless you like punishment.
Free tea & coffee but we ended up working from home so none.
Everything about this company, please, please AVOID
Essentially the bulk of this position is annoying people, who yes have signed up for the service but they have not signed up to be harrassed with 8 phone calls a day, with voicemails and texts.
great team atmosphere
management, procedure changes, harrassment of general public
The company treat the staff like they are robots. They also discriminated against a few employees who had medical conditions and who needed time off for hospital appointments. They want you doing overtime all the time and never praise their staff.
Only have to work 1 weekend a month.
Expected to answer calls like robots with no time to breathe.

This company was so unprofessional. I am glad that I am working at a proper law firm now. It was just a call centre, nothing else. The interview made the job seem as if there was the chance for progression, but this is not true. Those in charge should feel ashamed. 1. The managers were rude and useless. They would constantly criticise and hold useless meetings where they just criticised you. You could be giving excellent advice on telephone calls, but they did not care about that. They sent emails in which workers were rarely praised and it was as if you could never please them no matter how hard you worked. 2. I tried to do my work but I could often not concentrate. There was a group of DUMB GIRLS who sat in the corner of the office. No one ever did anything about their bullying and bad behaviour. Their manager just ignored it and just hid in the corner of the office, head down at his desk even though people were being victimised. Their behaviour made me suicidal and no one seemed to care. I am sure if these people read this account, they would just laugh and this is the type of how callous they were. They made life miserable for everyone in the office and mistreated people. They were bullies and that is the truth. They would just make fun of people all day. They made fun of people’s weight, of people’s disabilities and they would talk loudly about everyone in the office. They teased people about the food that they ate and made life miserable. I just hope that they are not mothers because if their children very get bullied, they are engaging in the same behaviour - more...
As professionals Slater and Gordon Lawyers is always confident of continue to deliver for our clients the best affordable legal service and help them through their own uncertainties. We have great tools to help each others at work and Assure Programs provide a broad range of services available for all employees. We also have a sequence of training sessions that offers to all staff to assist our well-being and managing our processes and activities. I have personally gained a lot of knowledge thru these sessions. We had our birthdays celebrated altogether in the boardroom regularly, watched the Melbourne Cup, never missed the Xmas festivities apart from the staff meetings. The hardest part of the job was seeing our vulnerable clients who were going thru the pain and hardship time. And the most enjoyable part was the witnessing their happy faces after wining the case with a life changing outcome.
Xmas Lunches, Birthday gatherings
I worked at this law form for over 17yrs as it was previously under another name. The management in charged now dknt take responsibility for their poor management skills and certainly do not try to support you or encourage progression. If you within the legal industry stay away.
Company isn't focused on the employee. Working hours are bad and the employee isn't valued very much. Theu didn't car too much about any personal problems that you may have and you always felt that everything comes down to the money you are making the company and not the fact that if it would be a less stresfull enviorement you could be more productive.
What can I say , terrible training , management haven't a clue what they're doing and you feel isolated in every way . Typical call centre where they promise you the world but the truth is they will throw you on calls and just leave you to fend for yourself , please avoid if you value your health
