Good morning! (not really) Question regarding perks

Do any of you agents (reps) call center or otherwise get any cool perks with your jobs?

ex. Here we get the usual, Medical, Dental, 401k, Holiday pay, Overtime opportunities, Vaction and sick time. Possible bonuses, etc.

but we also get perks like Saturdays they order Pizza and hot wings from Pizza hut for everyone.

We have a cookout about once a week or so, where we cook hotdogs and hamburgers for the agents.

Free coffee on mondays (we have butter finger coffee in the coffee machine mmmmmmm...)

Used to have an xbox 360 in the break room and tv projected on the walls in front of our desks (call center is an open design)

So what do you have?

Dang sounds like you got it pretty good.

Here, we have monthly drawings for prizes like iPads, weekend cruises, etc.

They will also play music over the speakers from time to time and we have a tv in the breakroom.

We just had a cookout with a ton of food for everyone last week and they plan on doing that every couple of months. but certainly not once a week.

We do monthly incentives, gift cards to Best Buy and Target. For quarterly incentives, we give out some pretty nice stuff. The yearly incentive is 1 agent from our department gets to go on a trip where our client will take us. This year it is in the Dominican Republic.

Your quarterly and Yearly incentives sound pretty, cool. All we really get for yearly is we get a raise. My last raise was like $0.07 on the hour.

Other things that we get here that I didn't mention is the team with the highest score for the month, gets money to buy food for their lunch that is chosen by the entire team, Some people do Pizza... My team had it for 3 months straight and we get Applebees ribs and wings for 1 day for 3 months. It was pretty cool.

Besides that I don't think we get anything else worth bragging about.

Unlimited overtime right now though.
