Delta Management

Hello! I currently work full time at Dunkin' Donuts. However, I do have a 4 year BA degree in Sociology so I'm trying to get something with that. I recently have started the process to get an interview at Delta Management in Bedford. Has anyone heard of them or worked for them? Can you tell me anything? What I do know is they are a collections agency. If I can get in, then I could be making $10/hr plus any bonuses I might get. This would be better paychecks and a change of scenery. Those with experience in collections can you tell me anything good about doing this kind of work? I know I hate when I get phone calls from these kinds of people lol

Bump. I have heard you must meet a certain quota every week.

I would never work for a collections agency.  You usually have certain quotas to meet every week and they will fire you immediately if you don't meet them, forget bonuses because you'll never get them.  I had a friend who was in charge of a collections call center and he was miserable the entire time he worked there.

making money off the misfortunes of others seems a job I could not do. especially when the original creditor has written it off. sold it for pennies on the dollar to others who then try to collect a tremendously inflated amount over even the original owed.

We all have student loans. It's money borrowed we need to pay back. The only thing I don't agree with is, like you said, the inflated amount.

I agree legitimate debt owed should be repaid. I do think that the methids employed by the purchasers of discounted debt are dubious.

 I know people who have tried to work for collections agencies, and none of them lasted long. It's stressful

I didn't get asked for an interview so now I'm back on the road to searching for a better job.

My DH managed collection agents at Chrysler Financial prior to their bankruptcy. It is a very hard job, you have to emotionally really disengage from people. You are hated literally all day long by people, and have to make hundreds of phone calls. You have to be very aggressive in calling family, employers, friends essentially ruining/bothering people's lives so much that they choose to give you money they owe when they have very little to give. You hear lies and heartbreaking stories and have to just get up and do it all again tomorrow.

I do not think I could do it, but some people do well, but it's not a job for anyone who empathizes easily.
