Call Center Jobs in the Philippines with the Highest Salary

Call center jobs or the business process outsourcing jobs are the number one gateway to receive the highest pay in the Philippines for years now. Yep, one of the highest salary. Call center solutions are literally the topnotch solution to receive the highest salaries here in the quickest way. A customer service provider and a call center agent, though only a starter, could earn as much as what a manager rank earns in a company here.

be a call center agent and earn big time!

Are you gonna wait and work your ass out for a higher position in your company to receive three grand to four grand of salary? Or are you gonna try to be a call center inbound and outbound customer service associate to receive impressive income you actually receive for four months in your old company? If your answer is the latter, quit your old job and apply at the best call center companies in the Philippines because I’m so sure you’re pretty much qualified.

What are the requirements for call center agents and representatives?

For call center agents and customer service and sales representatives, BPO companies don’t require any applicant to have a college degree or be a professional. They don’t require anyone to have experienced in the field too. Some companies prefer fresh agents without experience than those who had call center support experience already. For call center agents and customer supports BPO companies require the following:

  • Has completed at least 2 years of college education
  • Has a very good communication and interpersonal skills
  • Is fluent in English - oral and written
  • Has a very good customer service orientation and skills
  • Has good telephone courtesy
  • Is knowledgeable in MS office and internet browsing
  • Has data entry ability and skills

For tech support professionals and technical support agents, BPO companies require almost the same skills like what mentioned above plus the applicant must possess a very good IT inclination, familiar with internet connection, various operating systems and hardware trouble shooting.

How much is the pay / salary?

Because call centre outsourcing services and business process outsourcing is a very lucrative and profitable business internationally, call center agents are paid with higher income, too. In the Philippines, the starting salary of an experienced call center agent ranges from 12,000 pesos for ten days of work and 36,000 pesos for a month not including bonus and incentives. For starters without experience, BPO companies compensate their employees with around 10,000 to 12, 000. Of course that was just the starting salary for a call center representatives. If your rank pushes up from technical support associate to tech support specialist or tech support team manager and IT professional, your salary will be doubled or tripled, range from 50,000 to 70,000 pesos

How much is the salary if you got promoted to floor support?

Please send e-mail to

My husband didn't tell me that's why I want to know. He is working at Convergys Up Tech Hub - 2012


fromCVG on June 30, 2012:

Accenture, CVG and JP Morgan are my recommendations.


You can try Convergys. Don't limit your capabilities in finding a career. Consider your long term goal. If you just want a fast track, money-pouring job, then there are a lot of other companies to start with. But if you consider your directions in 2-3 years, these 3 companies are better options and you will get more than what you expect in terms of salary, career growth, motivations and work environment. Companies have high-offers for entry-levels to get applicants to compensate their attrition. While others, have a fair offer to entry levels to keep their budget for competitive supervisors for expansion.

There are many other industries that you can try as well. Best luck! Cheers!

zayn on June 22, 2012:

"15k ECLUSIVE OF THE ALLOWANCES" I should edit my post sorry :D

dumbo on June 08, 2012:

Hi everyone. I would like to share my experience with Stream Global.

This morning I went to Uniserve, a recruitment firm for call center agents. I was endorsed to STREAM GL. by Walter, one of the HR people.

I have precisely dscussed with him my expected salary, I informed him that in my previous job I had 15k for the basic, inclusive of allowances night diffs etc.

By 11 am I reached Stream Gl, I handed my resume to the receptionist and was asked to log in using one of their computers and was asked to stay and wait to be called.

I passed the examinations and got the chance to be interviewd by 4pm. Stream Gl offered a 13k basic plus 3k allowance etc. Now the disappointing part was, they are offering me a practically lower basic salary than my previous salary. What's the point of indicating this on my CV and dscussing this term with Uniserve when in the end they will just give a rubbish 13k job offer?

I thought maybe I could be patient and give it a try. On the latter part, the interviewer said that while Im on training I will be working with a 30k bond. Whaaaaaaat? Meaning when I live the account regardless of the issue would be, I am opt to pay them 30k. That's bull* right?

So to those noobs whose planning to apply to Stream, think twice, and when you have decided.. think even more.

Goodluck guys.

joan belle on June 07, 2012:

wow! thank you twentyfive for setting up this forum,this really is helping me with my options,BIGTIME!

anyway,i do have a question:what will be the best call center in cubao?

based on the discussions here,stellar seems to give the highest premium pay within this area but unfortunately they've moved to eastwood already.So im left with APAC,TELUS,ACCENTURE and SUTHERLAND CUBAO.

sutherland is out of my list.IVE been with them before for at least a year,salary is just 13k for a financial account.Ive also worked for a year in NCO clark,again,salary was low(provincial rate) considering that I worked for TMOBILE(its a pain the ass account!forever que,mandatory OT,99 ppercent callls are irate and is a "tri-skill" acount-customer service,basic tech and upselling!wheeeeew!).

just wanna consider applying to companies within cubao area since im now living here.

wow this post has become quite more interesting than i thought... :)


I hope you enjoy your stay with convergys. I worked in Ala-1. It is sad to say but I cant meet you there, yet I hope you'll be part of my team who I hope remember me as one who could have been a tcon there. hehe. Based on what new employees said to me (those who did y-jacking/barging on my calls), they are getting the standard offer which varies on call center experience. Enjoy it.yep convergys is a fun place if you're into balancing work-pressure-life-productive environment-future. Just be sure to do good on your metrics. :)


I totally agree with you that Convergys are the best guys who know how to motivate and keep their people especially those who have salient ambition to move up the ladder. Congratulations as one of the TLs. I am sure you got a lot of feedback / motivations from your previous TLs as well and even OMs and fellow agents. For me it is the best part with convergys. Though salar is not that high compared with other emerging call centers (which might later can be a risk and drop you off anyway), convergys is totally secured and stable company with super many employees to motivate you and inspire you on what you do.

Kudos to CVG. and yep I'm already resigned and was accepted to another competitive field.

yilisha on March 09, 2012:

I got to say something: IF YOU WANT TO KEEP A LIFETIME JOB, PURSUE THE DREAM THAT YOU REALLY WANT... NOT BECAUSE OF THE SALARY... I've been into call center industry for like 5 years and later realize that what will happen to me if I got older. so I definitely settled for a teaching career right now. It's a matter of choice... these company are just using you and if they don't need your service anymore they can just kick you out.

Hi there. I just signed a contract with CVG San Lazaro last Feb.29 but didn't really get the chance of asking further about the benefits.

I've heard from a friend that their health card does not cover dependents? Does it mean that I would have to pay for my own dependents for them to be enrolled in the same health card?

Can someone please enlighten me on this. An email would very much be appreciated.

Avior on February 16, 2012:

Hi guys. I just wanna say that right now I'm stuck between Convergys (Makati) and Teletech (MOA/Pasay).

The thing is, I applied at Convergys San Lazaro (because it is very highly accessible via LRT from my place), and then after about 2 weeks, I got a call and told me that I have to go and get re-evaluated at their Makati site. When I got there, it turned out I was being transferred 'coz one of the accounts in San Lazaro is already gone/closed. I was offered a 13k base (at San Lazaro) for an account that is sorta like, then at Makati, I was shocked to see on my contract that I still got the same base pay despite being transferred to a financial-based account. I was kinda disappointed about it.

Then right on the same day, I a recruiter approached me to go have an interview, she told me it'll be just about 15 minutes and I might get the job (the truth is, it took me 3 days before I got the job), I passed everything Teletech has to throw at me, I was assigned to a Mobile Phone service in the US. I was kinda psyched to know that I was getting a 19k salary, but it turned out it was 14k (plus the rest are benefits or something)... I was like; "My God!". I signed both contracts, and both of them has the same start dates, I haven't ddecided on which one... But if gossips are right, that account in Teletech is said to be hard... I really don't know what to do.

now incentive it will take you 2 to good 3 months waiting for your well deserve incentive not to mention they have the guts to change prices so abruptly with no proper communication.

VL try to apply and you will never get approved plus they are doing forced Ot's tell me is this the best place for you to work?????

Accoustic on February 02, 2012:

Hi guys i was hired @ accenture they gave me BJS account. Do you think this is a good account?

mameisty on January 28, 2012:

Just to share my thoughts... for newbies in BPO / Call Center industry.

If you want easy call center job you'll have to start from scratch with a basic of 12-15 K TP, CVG, Teletech, Telus, Stream, etc. You can claim incentives, bonuses or commission on top of your basic salary & allowances. But beware because you have to be prepared for supervisors or team leaders that are called "KISS ASS" to clients, they would rather have their agents sacrificed to get what the client wants. Considering your paid with high salary but its nothing compared to what they earn saving their butts from paying premium if they do not outsource. And your life in call center is your metrics or your goals because that's how you earn your appraisal & that's the reason why they will keep you.

For those tenured & wants to be paid premium you can try Financial accounts such JP Morgan Chase, HSBC, CITI & even Bank of America is here. They will pay you more than what your basic is when your still with the BPO company but they would really extract every penny they spent. They will always say your recquired to comply because your "paid premium".

For someone asking about TELUS just for heads up, they offer both voice & non-voice. I've been with Telus for 2 years Sales account for DELL. When I started as a call center virgin my basic is 13,250 plus allowance & night differential ( I forgot the % though). I'm lucky I got a nice supervisor. Even I'm new hire I earn sales incentives. What I also love about Telus is they have Friday treats every 1st friday of the month if I'm not mistaken & a lot of freebies specially if we have electronic shows ( launching of new line of products or technology). But the sad part is as time pass by & because US economy its hard to close a sale. Clients are pushing more sales although they'r aware of the situation to the point that they ask for metrics that is no feasible. Normally in telus appraisal is max of 1K & your very much lucky to get that if your TL is as nice as mine. LOL. I know some that are much tenured only got like 100 - 500. Its actually a nice atmosphere that you got to have a lot of friends but it sucks to have OM's that are not so pro-employee. As I recall one of our OM's line, " We are not a charitable institution, we are a callcenter company & our business is based on the number or calls we take. We don't care what happened to you or if you didn't sleep or whatever because you recquired to come to work." After 2 years I ended my career in TELUS & moved to a financial company (sorry can't disclose as privacy policy).

Just a bit of advice if you want to work hard but not to exhaust yourself non-voice is the best option but beware because they normally start with lower basic than voice accounts. But if your tenured & already have a lot of call center experience you get a chance of high offer.

Thanks Nathan! I'll just wait for a call. :)

Nathan on January 19, 2012:

Hi Seleisha,

Im one of the recruiters of TeleTech Pampanga. Yes, usually we conduct Job Offers after a week or two if we have a big target of hires. We apologize for not being able to schedule you for contract signing right away as we currently have limited number of slots. You may call TeleTech at 045-455-0326 or 27 for any concerns or you may leave your complete name so that we could give you a feedback regarding the status of your application. FYI... we are offering 16K to 17K starting salary per month which includes the basic and the allowances. Thanks! :)

Saleisha on January 18, 2012:

Hi! I was hired @ teletech pampanga but I haven't signed the contract yet and told that they'll call me. Is this really how it works? Coz i heard in other bpo companies, once you're hired they will let you sign the contract that same day. Also, I dont have any idea on how much will be my salary/allowance/benefits. I also completed all my pre-employment requirements and medical. Please help!

Working @ TELUS for 6 years now.

For undergrads, TELUS may be right for you.

They have what we can Telus University.

Yes you can have a degree while working with TELUS.

You study @ TELUS locations and get degree from universities like UA&P, de la salle, AMA, etc.

TELUS will should about 70% of the tuition.

You can apply at our Market! Market! (Taguig) site or at TELUS Cubao (near SM or Araneta Colloseum).

Note: Pay is low, starting is about 14k only. (When I started it was only 12.5k)

Mine after 6 yrs is just around 30k.

Supervisor@22 on January 17, 2012:

Just wanted to share my thought.I started with Convergys back in 2009, got regularized May of 2010 got chosen as senior rep based on performance, promoted as Floor support on January of 2011, Got promoted as Probationary Team Leader/supervisor on July 2011 and Got regularized as a Team Lead/Supervisor December of last year. Convergys may not have the most competitive sallary ( compared to other company) basic is 15,000 once you get regularized plus 3500 allowances, plus Night diff, But they know how to take care of their employees because they prioritize growth from within. if you are looking for a good career path you might wanna work with Convergys. Plus their employee engagement team is the best when it comes to events. They know how to motivate people. Though we can't deny that we have number of employees who are a bit dissatisfied. Its plainly because they are not doing their job well. Why would a company kick you if your doing something good for them (just sayin). I'm a proud employee and i wanted to share this satisfaction with you guys hihi, apply in UP science Techno hub in philcoa, or in San Lazaro site these 2 are the best sites for me. :)

xtelfai on January 16, 2012:

hi guys im working now at teletech lipa ...and i got a phone call from convergys alabang for exam tommorow. wala na daw interview. please give some ideas dun sa anu bang mga accounts sa convergys alabang ..pls email me!thanks!

fromCVG on January 11, 2012:

**REPOST** sorry for the formatting

Thank you for posting lestat. :) Cheers. Your agony is over. I have a quite different experience though. I'm working with Convergys which I consider a very good company. Fellows were great, never got a problem with HR and benefits, Team Leads and OMs are very supportive, everyone knows how to appreciate even a small help from others. Totally hands down!

Allowances: I started 15000 then 2,500 allowance.

Overtimes: Government mandated overtime benefits, of course. There are queing periods which might require some OTs for 30 mins, 1 hour. Yet they also offer stipend which 100 Php each hour on top of the OT Pay. Just be sure to punch the correct OT codes to get paid. Anyway, you can always work with TLs about OTs as it improves team's productive hours.

PTOs: We have 120 hours VLs and 120 hours SL, (15 days each, which we earn 1.25 every month) All SLs and 40 hours of VLs are convertible to cash every end for first quarter. Then annual credits will restart. For avail time, service level team might inject offlines/trainings/additional coaching which are all paid and not deductible from your PTO (unless you requested to render voluntary out). Bottom line, they do not have force leaves.

HMO: Right after hiring as soon as you hit the ops, you can enroll your dependents. Just be responsible on submitting the requirements which are very easy. :)

Performance Appraisal: Quarterly Bonus for scorecards from 3.5 - 5 which gives up to 20% for each passing month. Then Annual appraisal which is reasonably prorated based on performance. If you get 3 months passing scorecard,you can apply to higher positions, whether higher ranking CSR or coach / trainer.

Queue: Most of the time but everyone gets the chance to enjoy avail as well. Yes staffing is sometimes a concern but that was due to the demands of the account. As usual morning (ET) are billing/technical/sup are on queues when customers are at work checking/disputing their bills and services. Then afternoon to evening are short calls for small tech tips, service orders, miscellaneous. Then weekends which are mostly family time for customers. We work on shifting schedules and it is a fact, thus we rather take it in our advantage. There are seasons that are totally queuing especially price change, seasonal service, limited promos, etc. Then you might ask, which account doesn't? :)

Labor Work: I'm sure everyone enjoys just sitting back, covering yourself with a blanket (because sometimes it's super cold), speaking foreign to escape from reality for a while, sometimes eavesdropping with your irate seatmate :P, stand to do stretching while on call, looking at your seatmates, at other teams, chatting about showbiz/life/love/food/sports/events/politics on your local chats, asking questions about tricky tips, being the first to explore updates and FYIs in your tools, helping your teammates on queries while on call, competing with sales (where earn more free stuffs), and the best part is to be commended by your teammate, TL and OM for helping out others while on call. Well, it is a matter how fast you are,ability to multitask and give focus. Just be sure sure to strictly follow floor policies. C'mon! It's set by default.

Equipment: All monitors are wide flatscreens. CPUs are fast. Just one pc login and will show all your tools. if you do not want the single login, you can ask TL to request IT to disable it. Sometimes if running too many extra programs, it hangs for 1 minute and we might need to reboot while on call. But it is not always the case. It's a machine so we do not expect it to be perfect. Just inform the customer and TL about your tech issue and they will consider your situation. Facilities are clean. Chairs are comfortable, though I cant pull up some chairs to level it higher which I prefer since I'm a tall guy. Headsets are good though some agents are too rude that they drop headsets carelessly after a supcall. Sleeping lounge has a certain scent which will surely make you fall to sleep. XD zzz

VL Approval: There is a limit to submit VL schedules request 30 days ahead of time. But as long as you see in your VL tool that there are hours available for a particular date,then you can expect that it will be granted. Sometimes, staffing issues happen due to demands offshore. If VL problems happen, always consult TL, they are always available to help. ***This is how regular agents value TLs. Most Convergys TLs are very approachable despite their busy schedules. Whether or not on same cluster, they are always available to help***

Cafeteria/Pantry: Clean. Good menus. Sometimes I hear some agents demand better menus, but I observe Convergys concessionaire is still above average. You can go out to buy fast food but I'd rather sleep during lunch time. :)

Training: I got scared during Culture training. I was intimated at first day by the trainer but she was fine after 2 more days. Training schedules are fixed and they will not kill you. With Convergys, you start your path from training. They will give you very detailed steps and timeline how to be promoted so when you step into the company, you can create your goal right away. And I must brag that trainers and TLS are very consistent on that. They always put your performance in your promotion status. Just make your numbers,and they are ready to give better position to you. Might depend on who's the trainer, and yes I can only talk about my experience.

OTs: Yes there are mandatory OTs, but the worst is already 1 hour a week, or 1 rest day ot a month. These mandatory OTs are not staffing issues due to failures of other sites or scheduling team, but because of high volume of calls due to seasonal services, price changes which are account specifics.

You might want to do your best to be hired by Convergys after reading this. I am not promoting them for my own, but I want to help others to get an insight how I feel as a Convergys Employee. I am so proud and I thought, I should have started working here from college. Before I forget, Convergys Christmas party, totally a super BLAST! Super delicious high end foods, and you'll see that Convergys people surely enjoyed it. Everyone was beautiful that night. Great give aways, I wish I won any of the the iphone 4s, Ipad2, LED flatscreen TV, Trip for two to Bora, Home Theater System, etc. Not to mention the perks of being a Top Agent every month. WOW!

I will miss them all. Yep I will miss them. I am now rendering my resignation for personal and family goals. As much as I wanted to be a TL with Convergys, I have decided to use more specialized skills where I can be more productive in a later life. It is sad to leave but pursuing a personal dream is always worth the risk. :)

twentyfive (author) on January 10, 2012:

Oh wow you really had enough with that call center company I must say. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. Everyone will surely appreciate this. You have put the detailed stuff from every scenario and I must hug you for that. That's quite a tough move. I'm hoping to hear more sharings here of some employees working from other BPO companies.

I wonder where are you working now? Or planning to work to any call center again? Thanks! Have a fantastic day!

lestat on January 10, 2012:

I worked at Teletech Pasay for 8 months before and my account there was an Australian Account. At the start, I was very impressed having a salary of 15K plus 1K meal allowance since it was my first employment. Time flies, I realized how bad this company is. I will provide different scenarios to justify this.

1. Allowances: At the time you signed the contract, your only allowance is 1K Meal Allowance. If you enter regularization, you got an "amazing" additional PHP 500 Rice Allowance. That's it.

2. Overtimes: Time Keeping System of Teletech is the infamous Kronos which has a capability of defaulting your overtimes into UNAPPROVED OTs. Unless it will be pulled out by your Supervisors and make them APPROVED OTs that will be the time they can be credited to your payslips. For 8 months, I had 2 disputes for these OTs. You might say because some TLs are sluggish but come to think of it, isn't it MANDATORY for them to credit it immediately for example you had long calls after shifts?

2. PTOs: This company is offering 30 days Paid Time Outs compared to usual companies offering 15VLs and 15SLs. Some may perceive it good but allow me to explain that it is not the case all the time. There are times especially during weekends that we had these called "avail times" where for several minutes or even hours not a single call would come in. What Teletech would do is to FORCE YOU DO EARLY OUT at the expense of your credits. For example in an 8 hr shift, you were pushed out 4 hrs prior, the remainder 4 hrs will still be paid but deducted from your credits. Remember that accrual for credits is 1.25 days/month only, hence it is serious if they would do this every weekend.

3. HMO: Single Status? Forget enrolling your parents to their HMO because their "company customized Maxicare" doesn't accommodate it.

4. Performance appraisal or Quarterly Bonuses? Annual Increase: NONE strictly speaking about scorecard. In my australian account: Perfect attendance, passed all my QAs and AHT lower compared to standards (which makes my scorecard always run 4.0+ monthly), I have my monthly bonus of 1,200-1,600. Look and check with other call centers and you would understand the frustration. (By the way, the last incentive that I had was pro rated since I was about to resign, it's P800, they did not include it to my back pay.)

5. Queue? Definitely! Why? Because of incorrect staffing and the random implementation of PTOs. For example, 7am to 4pm schedule, at around 1PM it will start to get avail by 10-15mins. The OSC will start issuing PTOs to those who had shifts from 5AM-2PM and 6AM-3PM. If you belong to closing shift group, you are dead LITERALLY. The OSC is from Teletech Bacoor sometimes he would allow them to go on AUX (meaning no taking of calls but paid phone hours) and flagged us in Teletech Pasay to compensate for increasing # of calls. Before I resigned, there was approximately 10 incidents that I was the last agent in our site (this is not an exaggeration, and is serious). PTOS are issued to make mandatory day offs also. There was even a week (weekly schedule is being followed) that I only have to go to work 3days/week. This practice resulted to a lot of my teammates losing all of their VLs and SL credits. Imagine the scenario if you would get really sick, then you don't have a choice but to have your monthly wage deducted.

5. Labor Work: Oppressing. We started our Line of Business to Retail Sales Support Postpaid Mobile Phones. We are catering "phone and postpaid plan" dealers selling to their customers support like activating the phone, customizing their plans, integrating internet access, overriding unapproved applications, referring to collection agencies for unpaid debts and answer disputed charges for calls, texts and internet. SUPER AGENT? Hehe. OOOPPS. They did not stop there. They wanted us to be SUPERB100X AGENT because 2 months prior finalizing my days, they upgraded us to telephone, internet and cable support. ALL OF THIS WITHOUT A SINGLE CENT INCREASE. Imagine the scope of work you need to do above and multiply it after the upgrade. By the way we are dealing with corporate and consumer accounts.

6. Equipments: It's a big folly that we have flat screens in Pasay. IT IS ONLY FOR TLS. If you are a starting or even a tenured agent, you would have a sluggish PC with POP UPs (this is based on 30+ PCs that I experienced. We are constantly moving to different parts of the building so I know how do they perform. Not mentioning the chairs which are limited and non-adjustable. If you happen to be with AT&T you got a brighter side in this aspect ALONE because they have faster PCs and better office chairs.

7. VL approval: Due to exhausted PTOs and the company managing your credits, it would be very hard to file VLs. It is required to raise your intention at least 1 month after but the result will be most of the time within the week of your designated dates.

8. Cafeteria: There is only one cafeteria in Teletech Pasay. It usually depends on the concessionaire but the variety is definitely lacking. You might be thinking of going to SM MOA but considering the duration of walking back and forth plus the immense size of MOA, it is not practical for an hour lunch.

9. Training: It might depend on the trainer. It is NOT true that Teletech holds best trainings. Expect training schedule is very erratic, changing weekly by opposites of day and night.

10. RECENTLY MANDATORY OT: If you get hired into an Australian Account in Teletech Pasay, better rethink first before you sign the contract. The attrition was too high after the "upgrade to SUPERB AGENTS" that all remaining agents in our LOB has a mandatory 1 DAY OT per week. Though it's dayshift imagine working 6 days/week, queueing, and higher chances of OTs being left unapproved (due to their Knonos system)

I'm currently a Call Center Training Supervisor at Sykes but i'm not that happy with the compensation I get, anybody here knows an opening for the same position i mentioned? I was a 3 year Product trainer for a financial account before being promoted as training sup. If theres an opening for Trainer im cool with it too as long as thepay is higher than what Sykes offers.

Rob on December 28, 2011:

Hi guys nice site! My wife is currently an experienced top agent in Convergys Makati and I'm looking into her transferring to Telus so that she familiarizes herself with Telus accounts since she will be joining me in Canada in the near future. Anyone working for telus to give me an idea how to go about this. I know the pay sucks but its the Canadian experience that she's seeking right now...Any one with ideas about Telus? Regards
