Its basically cold calling to US and international market.When I was interviewed I was told by HR That basic wage will be 19k and there will be 7 euros per qualified lead.after one month they finish the bonus by saying that they will increase wages.they increased only 20 euros a month.so the rule is if they have campaigns they will pay you good money other wise they will throw you out.you have to do over time quite often and again if they have money they will pay otherwise will give you credit in your annual leave.HR is completely bullocks.Team Leaders and QA are Ok but not helpful.Overall to say if you get jobs in tesco or Aldi for 9 euros per hour it's worth rather than working in IDG. They don't treat you as human. AVOID AVOID AVOID

I spent almost 12 months working for IDG Dublin. A mongst the many call centre roles I had over 20 this certainly ranks the worst. I'm fine working in a fast paced target driven environmen though if you were a top performer as I was with a few slack weeks they want you gone. No support from a dreadful HR unit. Would not recommend even for entry level or between jobs.
Pros
Decent and sociable mainly younger colleagues.
Cons
Bad and impersonal management. Teriible job security and little reward.

They need to care more about the people who make them their money. After probation is where you'll start having problems. Everyone is replaceable and you feel it
