Is anyone having issues with the application? I'm on the very last page to esign and I CANNOT get the date to work! I can't type it in, but the calendar isn't working either. I'd hate to have to start over after filling everything insmileys/smiley5.gif

Thanks for posting this one. I remember having issues with the application online but I was able to apply for the position two days ago. At first the software didn't allow you to enter calendar dates but it should be working. I'm assuming they fixed the system. If I were you guys I would try it again and see if it lets you enter the information. The calendar icon should be there too for you to select your dates of employment. I don't think it allows you to manually enter them.

If this doesn't help than maybe there is someone on here that is already employed with the company and can pass on the technical difficulties of their website.

Good luck to everyone.

I keep trying to apply but the calender on the very last page to submit never works.
Has anyone else tried recently?
I also sent an email to the Rochester location in regards to the application issue but I still haven't heard and that was over a week ago smileys/smiley19.gif

I guess I will just keep trying.

Best of luck to everyone

You have to use Internet Explorer as your browser to complete the last page. I had the same problem. I have completed all my paperwork so now I guess I hurry up and wait to see if I get hired.

I was able to get it to work through Internet Explorer. Good luck to you panda!

02-04-2009, 06:55 PM
OH!!!! Internet Explorer.....I was using Fire Fox, I was wondering if that might be the reason but I saw that others had had trouble too so I figured it had something to do with the page itself since it's only the last page.
I will try applying again using Explorer.

Thank you so much for the info.

That is great. Congratulations to everyone that has an interview. So far I haven't receieved a response and I applied in January but maybe it's because they are only hiring full time reps. I think I applied for part time evening and weekends.

Could someone PLEASE pm me with the lady's email that does the hiring for Sutherland. She left me a voicemail and I deleted it because I was employed with Convergys at the time doing the digital switch. Now the FCC has dropped everyone from Convergys from the project and I'm out of a job. I know her last namesounded like Mishler...along the lines of that. Thanks so much!

02-21-2009, 12:59 PM
I am using IE. I was able to open it on 2 other computers but not the one I plan to use for work. I did the assessment on one of the other computers and then the computer test on the work computer. Did you all have to take the computer assessment? I probably missed over half but that was not whatI was applying for. ThinkI did well on the CS assesment. Will keep my fingers crossed! Thanks for the response!

do anyone know what there schedule is like and is anyone on the att program?(can I have a example of what they said their schedule will be like)

DeannaNC
02-22-2009, 08:01 PM
All I know is that we do a self paced training until April 6th and then 11am-8pm will be their hours and you have to work a full day monday and then some on saturday.. i think they just give you a shift! The problem I have is that I can only work like 11am-2pm, so I bet I wont be lasting after training, but you just dont know your schedule this far in advance so you have to take a chance.. The guy I talked to said that they may open at 9am.. but its a new account and they are starting 11am-8pm for some reason.

missy H
02-22-2009, 08:32 PM
i can only work from 11am-4 pm and i can work the full day on monday's,It just can't be after 4 pm.also is anyone on the att program? I am on that one and I was trying to see was it sales or just customer service

Howdy,

For those that still work there at Sutherland?
Are they still hiring, what is the environment like, are they felixable with schedules?
