Very off topic this but:-
I'm just about to move house and change my telephone/internet supplier........and apart from a good deal
I want a company that hasn't moved 3000 jobs to Dehli or wherever.
Had a quick search to find a site that lists companys that only use British call centres, but couldn't find one. Do you know of one?
PS Did find out that the bank I use, HSBC, is moving 4000 jobs abroad. Guess I'll be switching banks too.
Not sure bout phone suppliers. Have been using BT who are meant to have call centres abroad, but whenever I 've rang up I've never noticed.
HSBC-wise, they've had foreign call centres for a few years now. They blocked my card one night after I had been on a spending spree. Rang up the PREMIUM RATE number as that's the only way to get hold of them, and spend forty minutes on my mobile at whatever crazy figure a minute to someone who couldn't understand me. The line was bloody awful and I couldn't hear a thing. After being passed round three times I was finally told it was a 'security' measure as I had been making lots of different transactions in lots of different places. Isn't that what you do when shopping...?!
I was out having drinks at the time and luckily girlburning was out to cover the rounds or I'd have been stuffed...
Plenty more 'They're G*ts!' experiences with HSBC, but that is the only one relevant to the call centre topic...!
