Everything was bad, too much negitive, nothing you do is good enough. Supervisors very rarely had any real good advice for to guide you. Incentives were minimal.

The salary can be tempting but it is hardly enough to live on. Recently they cut hours because of a mistake the companies analyst made but somehow they did not get reprimanded yet they cut hours and it was not the callers fault. This place does NOT care about you. It literally is a mindless job that a chimp could do yet they pressure and pressure you for ridiculous stats. Do not work here, you will regret it. No one last here more than a couple months. The turnover is just ridiculous.

After Nielsen bought out scarborough research they absolutely destroyed it.

They ruined the friendly environment

They destroyed staff morale

They gave us awful numbers to dial and then punished us for not completing it.


I used to love working there now id rather be homeless frankly.
Pros
Good work life balance.
Cons
Everything else.

Nielson is a great place to work and they offer different
job opportunities within the company. There is room for growth and job promotions and the ability to travel. Nielsen is a nationwide company that you can transfer to a different state and work for Nielson if needed.

very pleasant place to work. lots of opportunities for incentives at the Sarasota center. I only work part time but the surveys help time go by quick. I feel like I don't work at all some times.
Pros
incentives
Cons
keeping quality and index up to qualify for incentives.

Participated in largest national consumer study (since 1945) by placing outbound phone calls to households across the U.S. to understand what they are watching on TV and listening to on the radio. Recorded phone data and entered information into Company proprietary database.

Worked in a call center, doing the Scarborough survey. Management is extremely picky, have to do survey VERBATIM. Miss a word or 2? Points off. You are graded and scored on everything. If your index isn't where management thinks it should be you're in trouble. You have no control over what part of the country you are calling, or how many people are going to hang up on you but it can count against you. If they think you should be able to get 4 complete surveys, but it's a slow/hard night your index is going to suffer. It doesn't matter to them. The index goes up by 1-2 points and down by 5-10 points. Soul sucking place.
Pros
Evening hrs
Cons
Immature, cliques, micromanaged
