6. What are some common myths?

Everybody has their own idea of what "working from home" means. Here are some common myths:

  • I can work my hours whenever I want.
  • I can put my customer on hold while I run to the refrigerator to grab a quick snack.
  • I can DVR my favorite shows and watch them while I work.
  • I can take care of family members. 
  • I can take the dog out for a quick walk.
  • I can fold laundry while I talk to customers.

Although we appreciate the individual who can multi-task, our Home Agents must portray the utmost in professionalism while on the phone. We cannot allow any typical home background noises to come across the phone line while speaking with customers. Successful Home Agents must be computer savvy, comfortable navigating between several systems simultaneously. Your shift times, including break/lunch times, will be assigned to you. You will have the flexibility to be hired into the particular window of time and shift time that you are looking to work. Some folks truly do prefer late night hours and split shifts.

Our home agents receive paid training as well as a set hourly wage. Some positions also qualify for performance based incentives in addition to the hourly wage. Employees are paid for their hours worked, not per call answered. They also qualify for employee benefits. Convergys offers comprehensive benefits: medical, dental, 401K, tuition reimbursement, and more.
