Cons: Short breaks, unfair treatment, disgusting work place, toxic management"

Teller (Current Employee) says"My job at off track betting is ok when i am there. I am a sub so i do not work many hours there. that part is not good because you do not get bennifits when you are a sub. The job it self is ok. But there is no growing in that company unless someone retire or get fired or demoted so me moving up in that company any time soon is not happening. The pay sucks.

Former Employee - Recruiter says"I worked at Betting Connections full-time for more than a year Cons: Micro-managing On my first day they fired someone in front of me for not billing enough money. On my third day, the CEO Duarte called me into a meeting with him, another senior manager and another recruiter. They grilled her hard about her numbers in front of me to the point she was crying. They wanted to make it very clear from day 1 it is all about the money. The senior management installed cameras in the office so they can see from the luxury of their homes who is using the phone and who isn't-you are required to be on the phone all day long. The work environment is extremely toxic. They have a high number of recruiters yes, but the majority of these are trainee recruiters and they have a huge staff turnover."
