What Some Ex-employees have to say!

Go Startek............What a friendly place to work...........They hire you knowing what you did and then just fire you.................Like this economy is not hard enough to live in that you need to go and destroy peoples live.................I award you an F for values and morals................Posting date 6/11/2009 6:58 AMPosted by T
Startek is lying!!!! 27 people!? Please.. From the first floor maybe. They have fired alot more people than that. That place has no loyalty. No matter how hard you work. Or how well you do your job. You are at risk for losing your job. Heaven forbid you get sick 2 days in a row. And you drop below your 95% showrate. You could be fired. They pit teams against each other to "win" a gift card at the end of the month. Some sups resort to threats so that their team will win. They treat you like a traitor if you have to miss even a few hours for a family event. Even tho they say "flexable schedule" HA! for them not us. The worst part about the job. IS NOT the customers that call in. Its the OMs and sups that walk around like we are in a labor camp. I'm a current employee. But only for a short moment longer. Even shorter. Should they figure out who wrote this. But hey. They should have checked my application. Non-conformist baby. Since they said anyone caught talking about will get fired. Well I talked about it. Can you guess who?Posting date 6/11/2009 7:00 AMPosted by EastsideLady

Hiring and termination decisions that are based on names, arrest and conviction records, employment and personality tests and credit scores รข€” all of which may disparately impact people of color are violations of Title VII. Since the economy has been falling because of corporate fraud our overpaid corporate executives are targeting the people of color and very old criminal records in order to create a hostile society to justify more bailouts for their party lifestyles. Liberal democrats want to build more prisons; have law enforcement on every corner; control the working class to the point of Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky, and hundreds of other victims. This is the change you voted for; can you say O'bummer.Posting date 6/11/2009 8:14 AMPosted by Tao4mind
I agree 100% with Eastside Lady. I hated it with a passion, not because of the customers over the phone but the sups and higher ups.Posting date 6/11/2009 8:57 AMPosted by another ex startek employee
All these employees who were fired should immediately file a WRITTEN complaint (keep copies) with the EEOC and State Empl. Regulators. The firings are illegal and in violation of law.Then, go to the biggest employee lit. LAWFIRM (as a group, elect the smartest to lead) and ask them to represent you by filing discrimination lawsuits (and other applicable counts) against the Company.ATT needs to know that someone with a old conviction is not fodder and I personally have canceled my ATT cell phone and went to their competitor because of this happening all over -- who do they think they are? What business element could they possibly argue is impacted by someone having an old conviction.Google "BAN THE BOX" and join in on this nationwide, this is wrong, America is the place for second chances and as long as your doing good you should be allowed to work. This discrimination due to old convictions has got to stop and I think AT&T is wrong for making their contract holders fire anyone with an old conviction!Posting date 6/11/2009 10:58 AMPosted by M
This is not a stable job...Startek brags about building a career and then they fire you with no notice because they decided to change their policy...many have lost their job her in Decatur, IL and there are more to comePosting date 6/11/2009 11:36 AMPosted by current Startek employee
I was fired in 2004 from Startek for showing a motorcycle key (for a bike i'd just bought) to someone, and a third party (whose name I don't even know who that is) claimed I had a pocket knife. Startek always has been, and always will be, Enid's biggest lie. Wages kept low by the city commision, keep in mind the same AT&T job lands you $14 an hour in OKC. I think Vance should go back to work, and Startek should go on strike. Everybody hates it there, it is, after all, where you go with no other choice.Posting date 6/11/2009 12:00 PMPosted by J
