Exceptionally bad work enviroment, better in a prison
Customer service employee (Ex-funcionário) – Lissabon – 7 de Março de 2016
Whenever you see the shiny happy advertisement of Teleperformance Portugal, with beautiful promises of surf lessons, you get that warm feeling in your stomach. You think, hey, this is something for me.
Do yourself a favor and go to a toilet to release this feeling instead. This company will take away your humanity, your soul and your time and energy without giving anything back.
If you want to work at a desk where the only thing you can have with you is a plastic bottle of (only) water, and get a warning for forgetting to remove the paper label from your bottle, this is your company.
If you like confusing and contradicting messages from your direct team leader and upper management, this is your job.
If you liked to be kicked out of your apartment for being 1,5 week sick, without a warning or any room for negotiation, in a strange city where you do not know the language nor any people that can help you, please do work there.
