- Question About Teletech Payments:
Someone who will soon start training with Teletech was told by a Teletech personnel that she would be paid in arrears. She wonders if that means payment comes a month later? As answered by someone who claims prior experience with Teletech, they pay you after you do the work. This payment cycle really isn’t anything new, many employers have pay periods based on the two weeks prior to the date of your pay check. source: workplacelikehome.com
- Zirtual is a Flexible Company to Work For:
This is an important question for many, and answered by someone familiar with the company: “Zirtual is a very flexible company to work for. While working for this company, you communicate directly with clients on YOUR schedule.” Apparently, Zirtual does not impose strict schedules aside from the expectation of being available some days. source: workplacelikehome.com
