I ready everyone's post's about Arise and just wanted to put my two cents in. I went thru the whole process and am certified with Arise. Please be careful with them. I do believe that they are a legitimate company...however there are some pitfalls. It's not cheap to get incorporated (and there are companies out there that do not require this), every training costs money. So another words-if you want to work more than one client-you will pay for each clients training, if you are not sales driven be SURE and find out what each client will be expecting from you. I have been working with Arise since the beginning of November and I did love the work I was doing. However-the client I was working was sales driven (which was not disclosed before/during/after training) but did find out as I was working it. So what happens is this...if you do not meet your sales conversions you are not allowed to post hours until the PRESELECTED agents. Which in the end means little or no available hours left for you to post. I haven't had hours for 2 weeks now. Please understand that I still am holding out hope for Arise. I've invested ALOT of time and money and am not ready to give up. But you do need to know that there are issues that need to be resolved. I was even willing to pay to train for other clients that were more customer service related-unfortunately because our metrics have been incorrect since day one I have also been denied new opportunities that have been offered. And last but not least-good luck getting someone/anyone to contact you in regards to incorrect metrics so that you can get credit where credit is due-or at least sign up to train on new opportunites. My advise, do not put all of your eggs in the Arise basket just yet...there are some issues they need to resolve but again I do feel that there is hope. They pay unlike others...this is also another thing you should watch closely as I did not have issues with my pay but other agents have had several. I wish you all the best and I hope that this will help:)

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
