Work at Home Taking Calls for Sitel

by Anna T · 70 comments

in Customer Service, Phone Jobs



work at home for sitelSitel is a work at home call center position where you are considered an employee rather than an independent contractor. This company offers some nice benefits once you have worked for them for 90 days. Also, the calling is all inbound, so this is a plus if you are someone who is not a fan of outbound calling. Sitel has been in business for 26 years and they provide customer service for many well-known brands.

How much does Sitel pay?

Sitel does not list the rate of pay on their website. The only thing the website says about the rate of pay is that it will vary depending on the skill set needed for each client. However, I have searched the work at home forums and some say it starts at around $9 to $9.25 hourly. The company does offer raises at various intervals during your employment and you are paid by the hour instead of per call.

When does Sitel pay?

Sitel will pay you bi-weekly either through direct deposit or with a pay card.

Where does Sitel hire?

Sitel does not hire in every US state, but fortunately it isn’t too limited. Sitel hires in the US only for work at home positions in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

Who is qualified?

It is preferred that you have previous customer service experience or sales experience, but those things are not requirements. Your chances of getting hired are probably better if you have past experience in customer service/sales.

I should mention here that one of my readers went through most of the application process — about two hours worth of time spent — only to get a “we’re not interested” email afterward. So just be mindful that the application is fairly time consuming and even if you make it as far as the voice audition, that’s no guarantee you’ll make it in.

What are the tech requirements?

  • A computer (configuration requirements listed on website) – No Macintosh
  • High speed internet (DSL or Cable)
  • Home office free from noise, distractions and interruptions during your shift
  • Telephone – analog or digital land line (strictly for work use during your shift)

What are the benefits?

After you have worked for Sitel for 90 days, you may qualify for medical, dental, 401K, vacation/holiday pay, employee discounts with some of Sitel’s clients.

How is scheduling?

This isn’t a super flexible job. Your schedule will depend on the client you are working for. According to Sitel, there are part-time and full-time opportunities available.

Training Info

You will have to go through three to six weeks of training before you officially start working for Sitel, but you will be paid hourly for your time spent in training. Sitel does not bend very much when it comes to training. You will have to show up for every session. Not doing so could result in your being dropped from the project.

More Information

You will find a ton of info here in Sitel’s FAQ. This should answer most of your other questions.

Feedback on Sitel

Many people who have gone through training, interviews, etc. and are actually working for Sitel from home seem happy with the position. I’ve read some good things on the forums. However, I have also seen complaints from people who are in the midst of the training/interview process. This can apparently be sort of sluggish sometimes. Someone reported all but being hired but then never hearing back from the company after that point. Another person said that training was taking a long time to complete. But apparently once you’re up and running and actually doing the job, it’s not all that bad. The hours can be long and you aren’t really allowed to get up other than during lunch, etc.

I would recommend doing a search on Sitel at WAHM and also Work Place Like Home. You’ll find several threads where people are discussing the company.

Check your spam file in email service used to apply. That’s where mine was so that I could complete the assessments.

I have also applied with this company – I have all the qualifications and more. I, too, get the letter that I won’t be moving forward with the company… I’m baffled.

What are the hours for training? I was looking for a part-time work at home solution as I work 3-10 at a call center.

I’ve been with the work from home program taking roadside assistance calls for nearly 10 months. The things I like: We started off at a shameful $9.00/hr, You will get regular increases over 6 months until you hit 10.50. 2) I have health and dental insurance 3)They are less careless than the 2 other WAH call centers I’ve worked for. they do try to be professional. Doesn’t always work out, but I appreciate the effort. 4)They send you a computer, phone, headset, and keyboard at no cost to you and they support/replace when there is a problem. This was huge for me, because tech support at the last 2 companies have really messed my personal computers up – and they take no responsibility. 5) Calls are generally quick, and you will rarely need a supervisor once you get the hang of it.
What I dont like: After 6 weeks of training I had no clue how to operate the dispatch software because they dont have a training version. 2) They will tell you that many things cant be taught in training as an excuse for missing the opportunity to educate us on certain best practices. 3) Supervisors are hard to find when its time for them to take a call – and often, they won’t do it. 4) When the system goes down, unexpectedly, it will be the worst day of your life. Customers will wait 2,3,4,5 hours for roadside assistance and there will be nothing you can do about it – and nothing you can give them to make up for it. 5) The better health insurance pkg isn’t an option for agents until you’ve been there for 3+ years. I think if you’re willing to pay for it, you should be able to choose but no. not here. 6) This is the worst for me – They are very evasive about schedules during training. You will train at regular business hours. When you get to on floor training, the hours may be slightly later. You wont know your regular hours until about a week before you’re finished with on floor training. Then, you’ll have to compete to keep your shift if you’d like to keep it. They do a shift bid every 3 times a year, and if you’re not a top performer, you will lose your shift and be moved to difficult hours like 4-midnight or 5pm-1am. You’ll be asked to go part time or quit if you can’t deal. Of course, none of this is mentioned during training or interviews. There is never any mention of you losing your schedule. This is why turnover is high. Otherwise, I think more people would stay because it isnt as stressful as other types of call center work. They are willing to work with school schedules and in rare cases will make an exception for home life issues but it only lasts until the next bid. Its very disruptive and difficult for employees to adapt to.

I applied to Sitel about two months ago, did an assessment, then had two interviews. On my last interview, someone told me that my interview results would be sent to HR, and they would let me know from there. I guess I did not get the job, because it has been over a week, and they still have yet to contact me by phone or email letting me know about my status. They could at least have the decency to let applicants know after an interview on whether or not they got the job, or at least inform on whether or not they are pursuing other candidates that better match the qualities that they are looking for.

I don’t think that is too much to ask. If Sitel interviews someone two or three times, at least let them know something so that they are not waiting by the telephone and constantly checking their email. People do not have time to wait for a company to get back with them when they say they will, when in reality, they have no intention to. Sitel in my opionion, just from my opionion, is very unprofessional and disrespectful.

I just had an interview today. I was called 15 minutes late, so I ended up going on with my night. When I got home from grocery shopping, my mom told me someone had called from for an interview and they would call back in 10 minutes, which they did. The interview lasted about 10 minutes and was very easy. First, I was asked to go to http://www.speedtest.net and was told more about what the company, does while waiting for the results. After the results of my speed test, I was then asked a few questions such as: “why do you want to work for Sitel?”, “tell me about a time you had a difficult customer interaction?”, and “do you have any restrictions?” I have a 6 year old son that can only be in day care from 8a-5p mon-fri so I asked if they would consider me for shifts between 7am and 5pm MST, and was told that should not be a problem. Last, but not least, the interviewer instructed me to go the site, sitel.com and tell her who the President and CEO of Sitel is. After that, I was told I was being moved forward and would receive an invite for a second interview within 24 hours to learn about the current project(s) offerings.

I’ll update once that happens!

I am so happy to have finally heard back from them. I had pretty much counted it as a waste of time having done the application and testing after checking my email everyday for about 2 weeks. I got email from them today saying that I passed the skills and appitude tests, and that I could follow a link to get scheduled for an interview, but my computer doesn’t meet the upload speed requirements, which I actually think they probably have listed wrong, but there is no way to get around that.

They require min download speed of 1.5mbps, and min upload speed of 1.5mbps. I use the Clear network and they only give me 100mbps. I do a lot of both up and down loading of files on a daily basis, and my up and download speeds are fine. I’ve also noticed that none of the other telecommute positions require THAT high an upload speed. Most of them require that you can upload in the 0.5mbps area. (thats why I’m thinking its probably a typo).

I Can’t schedule an interview because of my supposed lack of internet upload speed, but it still feels to good to know that I was able to pass their very intense appitude testing!

Thanks, Anna!

Sorry for the late update. I did have my interview a few days after my post above. I was told this was for the Toys R Us Project. The recruiter told me they do send a computer out . I was asked a few questions about past employment and what my availability would be. I told the recruiter I have a young son and would only be available between 6 am and 5:00 pm. She snarled at me and stated most agents need to have a least 2 shift availability. The next day, I received an email stating I was not selected for this position. I have to believe it was because of my inflexibility with the shifts.

Hi! I have applied for Sitel and I did get an email inviting me to an interview. The issue is that when I click on the link, the calendar for August and September shows up, but no times listed. Was that the issue with you? Why would I get an email saying to schedule an interview, but no spots are open? How long did it take for you to get hired?

Reply

16 Carolyn August 3, 2014 at 9:20 am

@Eboni
I received the same email. All spots were taken. Then a few days later I received another email for a position and when I went to the calendar, they had an opening on the same day. So hang in there, I believe when they want to interview you for a position, it will show open times.

17 Eboni August 5, 2014 at 9:14 pm

@Carolyn… That’s exactly what happened! I went to the calendar, scheduled the interview for tomorrow morning. I can’t wait to see what that is like. By the way, how did the interview go?

Reply

18 Carolyn August 6, 2014 at 3:20 pm

It went fine and I got the job. But training was going to start the 18th and they put it off two weeks so doesn’t start now till Sept. 2. Let me know how your interview went. Are/did you interview for the Macy’s customer service? It’s mainly going to different websites and giving answers to questions about the website and then general interview questions like “What would you do if customer was really upset because a friend had bought the same thing as her and the friend got it cheaper?”

19 Eboni August 6, 2014 at 10:12 pm

Hi Carolyn! I’ve just completed the interview and I got the job. My new hire orientation will be on August 19 and I start training on August 25. The campaign that I will be working on is Toys R US. It is full time and they will provide the computer and headset which is cool. All I have to do is provide the computer screen and I have that already so I am good with that. Let’s see what happens and congrats by the way!

20 Krystal August 17, 2014 at 2:14 pm

Hi Eboni, I have a new hire orientation on August 19th as well and I start training on August 25th. I am not doing the Toys R Us campaign tho. I am doing tech support for Direct TV (I think). I will be working part-time but training is full time. My schedule will be 7am to 1:30pm.

21 Carolyn August 7, 2014 at 11:52 am

@Eboni
CONGRATULATIONS!! Good luck
I’m glad I didn’t get Toys R US! I know nothing about toys anymore. LOL All my kids are grown. Also, I didn’t want full time. I will be part-time but it’s mostly mornings and I would prefer evenings. I’m hoping maybe after a few months I can change to evenings.

Hi, I have just completed the long assessment, typing test and the voice audition. So, I will just have to wait for any news. I am bilingual and I did not see any requirement for that. I also have an 8 year old daughter and would like to work from 9 to 3 or from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. I am not sure if this schedule would fit their needs.

Reply

23 Carolyn August 8, 2014 at 1:15 pm

@Elian
It will depend on what position you are interviewed for. The one I am going to work for is Macy’s part-time and you have to be available to work from 8 am to 3 pm. When they send you an interview request for a certain position, they will have the hours required and either you can accept or not.

Reply

24 Eboni August 8, 2014 at 6:12 pm

@Carolyn… That is what I wanted but I will take what I can for now. I just found out that the “full time” position with Toys R Us is temporary until like January. If I do well, then it will be permanent. Am I the only one offered a temporary position?

Reply

25 Carolyn August 9, 2014 at 10:18 am

I’m not sure. They may only hire temporary full-time through the holidays. They have a lot of different clients, so if you do well once the position with Toys R Us is up, you can probably transfer to another client, if you don’t get hired full time with Toys R Us. I’m retired, so I only want part-time. I bought a house about 4 months ago and want so many things! LOL I don’t know if Macy’s is just through the holidays or not. Guess I will learn all of that once we have orientation.

26 Melly August 18, 2014 at 4:58 pm

Carolyn,

This is temp till January and then some will be invited to stay on full time but they need more people for the Holidays right now. I go for my drug test tomorrow and submitted the credit/background check but we have so much debt so I’m not sure how well that’s going to go over!

If it is for an interview, there should be a link in the middle of the email for you to click. I don’t know why the link at the bottom to fill out a questionnaire is there, but that’s not what you need to click on. It does come up with something funky.

Hi Sandy. By now you probably already have gotten “hired”, of course they do the drug/credit check before it’s official. I was hired this morning but we have so much debt that I’m not sure how well that’ll go over.

Hi,

Basically it was just questions asking about my work experience and if I was able to attend training. The interview wasn’t very long and I was basically hired on the spot. Let us know how everything went.

37 Melly August 17, 2014 at 2:36 pm

I have an interview tomorrow for the Toys R US campaign. My e-mail said that the training begins 8/26, which I found odd since a lot of you that were hired said 8/25 you were starting. I’ll keep everyone posted and let you all know what questions were asked so I can help someone else through this. I signed up for Full time as well but am hearing from a few of you that this is a temp assignment. That’s fine with me. So glad I found this site! I would REALLY love to get in on one of the live chat campaigns. I noticed Toys R US has live chat. I wonder who they use. Is it Sitel? Does anyone know?

Reply

38 Carolyn August 18, 2014 at 5:37 pm

@Melly
If it’s like other places I’ve worked for, you will end up doing both phone calls and chat. If you aren’t on a call and someone wants to chat, they’ll put it through just like a call. You just have to keep an eye on the chat box. Sounds like they are hiring a lot for Toys R Us. I’m going to work for Macy’s, we were suppose to start training on the 25, but they pushed it out to Sept. 2.

Good Luck

39 Carolyn August 22, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Has anyone else been hired for Macy’s? They put off the training for 2 weeks and said orientation would be the 25th, time to be determined. I have not heard anything since and just wondering if anyone else has. Since I would think they would have sent the time by now.

Reply

40 Eboni August 22, 2014 at 9:01 pm

HI,

Sorry for the delayed response. Well I had the orientation for Toys R US on 8/18 and was informed that the full time position is infact permanent, it’s just the Toys R US project is temporary since the holiday season is approaching. Once that campaign is over in January, we will then be moved to another campaign. The equipment is pretty easy and simple to set up. Make sure that is done before your training. And don’t forget to keep your box because when you decide to leave, you must return the equipment. The I-9 process was pretty tidious but I got through it. My first day of training is on 8/25 and can’t complain because I have the hours that I want. It helps that I work during the daytime because my kids will be in school, so no distractions. Good luck to everyone and I will keep you all posted!

greetings,

My hiring process with Sitel started with a application immediately following an aptitude test. It took about 2 hours to complete. I read in small print that once you start the test you can not back out. Then a voice audition. A pre- recorded voice asked me what I would do in this situation ” You have only been employed for a company for 6 months and have received 2 write-ups already for being late. A 3rd write-up would mean termination. Now you are on the way to work and stuck in traffic and are going to be late. What do you do?” Then the automated voice tells you to leave your answer to the situation after the beep.I received email to set up a phone interview with a recruiter the next day. I pulled up the calender and the only day that wasn’t blocked out was that present day. I had 2 times though to choose from. No other appointments for the month were available. The recruiter called me exactly on time and the interview lasted about 30 minutes. The recruiter asked me generic job interview questions. Like ” Why do you want to work at home with Sitel instead of showing up for work at a regular job site? “, ” Tell me a time that you had to help a difficult customer?” At the end of the phone interview with the recruiter I was offered the Toys R Us campaign. I received a contingent offer. A background check , credit check, was submitted along with drug screen. I was told NHO would start on 8/26 with TRU starting 9/2. In the contingent offer it stated something like that I would not be officially hired until satisfactory background screenings was received.They instructed me to look for an email with new hire paper work . Along with instructions for ” the next step” on the Sitel website that I registered on after phone interview . I have not received a new hire packet and have not found the “next Steps” on website. I have received a new email though saying that my training class has been rescheduled. Orientation and training has been pushed back due to “overfilling” the class. The new schedule for orientation is 9/2 then training on 9/8. I am still not sure though if I am officially hired! How soon before training does once receive new hire paperwork? When will I know if I passed credit check for employment? How can I know that I am official hire?

42 Carolyn August 26, 2014 at 8:12 am

@Julia

I’m glad that someone else is also getting the same information as me. Maybe they are just overwhelmed with new hires at this time. I received an email stating the Macy’s orientation was pushed back to yesterday, but then never received any information on the time for it. I sent an email to the recruiter yesterday but haven’t received an answer. When I look at the “Efficient Hire: Sitel Outsourcing” site, it just shows me as Holding and no actions required. Hopefully, we will get some information soon. I’ve not received any paperwork either, besides for the background, drug and credit check. And had to redo the background check, since the first one they sent was for 7 years and they needed 10 years.

Good Luck

43 Eboni Campbell August 26, 2014 at 3:08 pm

Hi… Sitel will send you information via email so keep checking on it. I am pretty sure that you are hired. They do need people because the holiday season is approaching. I am in my second day of training and it is ok. I do like the fact that Sitel provides the equipment for us. Makes things a lot easier. I will see how it goes. Good luck everyone!

44 Lissy August 26, 2014 at 5:04 pm

I got hired for the toys r us campaign with the new hire orientation on 9/2 as well. I went to do my drug test this morning and now I’m just waiting to hear back. I hope it doesn’t take long. All I have received is the same email twice which basically explains how things will be done step by step. I’m sure I’m not officially hired yet since I just did my drug test but i hope I hear something today. If anyone else who’s in the toys r us 9/2 class gets any info after their drug test please let us know. I’m concerned since I’m not official and haven’t received another email.

@Carolyn & Eboni,

Ahhhh! I just got an email from Sitel saying they want a second interview. I have already interviewed once, tested aptitude, done drug screen, background & credit check. Received Different emails re: training. Now, they wan’t a second interview. what’s going on ? am I hired or not? what can expect from a second interview?

This happened with me too for the Starbucks campaign. I was offered the job a few days ago then someone named David emailed me saying they need to do another interview to determine if this is would be the right job. Clearly it would be or I wouldn’t have already been given an offer. Makes no sense.

47 Carolyn August 26, 2014 at 7:27 pm

@Julia

I wish I could answer your question but I’ve heard nothing since they sent the email pushing the NHO back to yesterday with time to be determined. If it was yesterday, they didn’t send me an email about it. I know it didn’t go to my spam folder, I get very few spam emails and I always check before deleting. Training is suppose to start the 2nd for it also. At this point, I have no idea what is going on. It seems that I’m the only one that is hiring in to for the Macy’s campaign that is using this site. My contact person is Shawna, whom I sent an email to yesterday and I haven’t received an answer. So I don’t know if she is out for some reason, or my status has changed. As I said before, only thing I know is it still shows me as Holding. I’m just going to put my application in at other places, since I don’t know what is going on here.

Good luck on your interview and let us know how things go and if you get any more information.

48 Eboni Campbell August 26, 2014 at 7:57 pm

@Julia.. I have no idea. I didn’t have a second interview. I was hired on the spot and the recruiter sent me an email within minutes about getting the drug testing and background check done. I went ahead and did the drug test the following day and because it’s escreen, Sitel has the results within an hour after the drug test is done. Usually, the results are sent electronically. Why would they want a second interview, I am not sure but I would do it… at the same time keep your options open. @Carolyn, I am sorry that you have not heard anything. Most likely, you will get an email on Friday, since that is what happened to me. I ended up getting emails from Sitel the friday before my training. Good luck to everyone!

@Eboni

Did you have the NHO the week before you started training? I’m not worried about the background check or drug test. I wrote documents for Slot machines in Vegas and went through an FBI background check and I never even take aspirin much less anything stronger, so drug test was good. It just seems weird that they put off the training for 2 weeks and then I’ve heard nothing. I received the Macy’s campaign offer on the 11th.

I was offered the job also for the dtv campaign, then I received an email about a 2nd interview too. It threw me off because I had already been offered the job last Wednesday and I received an email Thursday about the 2nd interview. I asked the interviewer if this was standard practice(to be offered the job then get scheduled for another interview) she said it was something new they were doing.

I interviewed for Starbucks email and live chat only. Was given an offer. Then today I got an email from an operations guy named David saying they need to do a second interview even though I was already hired. It was very strange but I did it any way. Not sure if I still have the job or not.

They were very evasive about the hours of operation for Starbucks. Recruiter didn’t know and guy that did second interview didn’t know either. I’m still up in the air as far as hours. I have a 6 year old son so I need to know what the campaign business hours are. I had to email the HR department and ask.

Very unorganized interview process and feel like I’m being led on. If the interview process is like this, I imagine what actually working for them is like.

We’ll see. Will update you soon.

I finally heard back. According to them I didn’t complete the 10 year background request form. I did complete it, had to put in my last 10 years of addresses (had to look some up). Their message said, I didn’t have to do another drug test. They just needed a 10 year background check instead of 7 years. So I didn’t complete the drug part, maybe that is the reason they didn’t receive it.

I was then offered Toys R Us position, which I turned down. I know nothing about toys, since all my kids are grown. Plus it was full-time and I’m looking for part-time. So I will start looking for something else.

@Jennifer

Sounds like the second interview is something new they have started. I think they are just overwhelmed right now with new hires, gearing up for the holiday season. Also, they have a lot of new trainers and interviewers from what I’ve read. Which may be the reason they are doing the second interview.

Good Luck Everyone

Wow Carolyn! Sorry to hear that… The toys r us training is ok but I didn’t know we were doing so much. Basically, there is no script so we have to wing it. I now see why there is 3 week training because there is so much to learn and practice. As far as the second interview, that may be something new that they are doing. I had the NHO a week before the first day of my training. As I’ve said before, I was hired on the spot. Guess I got in at a good time then. The only thing that I don’t like is that the class is so big. At least 35 people are in my class, but at the same time, things are organized. I really can’t complain since I have worked from home before and those companies always like to start me off in the afternoon and have me working late. I have 3 school aged children so that is not possible, I have to work during the daytime because that is when it will be quiet in my house. Good luck everyone!

I don’t know exactly what it stands for but the job description is to greet the employee, answer concerns and questions educating them on their benefits, and solve complex issues relating to their health, savings, retirement plans and human resource related issues!!

Starting Toys R Us NHO tomorrow 9/3.This was a 3 week long hiring process. With 3 diffirent start dates that got pushed back. Including additional paper work, the backgrounds took weeks for results.Plus a second phone interveiw. At last though I am offically hired. I will let you all know about how training goes. Oh and BTW I was toldToys R Us had part time too. A recruiter informed me of this. Just FYI. I signed up for FT though.

Sounds like your job would not be hard at all, I wish I was hired for that one!! Mines doesn’t sound hard either, but I still wish I could have had the chance to pick which campaign I wanted like some others said they had they chance to do!
