    I've had 3 jobs in call centres in the past. It's not pleasant.

    i currently work in a call centre, and its in leeds,


    but its no where near as cool as first direct, our centre is like a factory.
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    The worst I worked for was an insurance company. We all had silly team names, we had to hit a buzzer when we got a sale, sounding a siren throughout the office and added to a massive scoreboard on the wall. Once a month they closed the whole place down to have an awards ceremony which they took far too seriously.

    I'm still amazed I lasted 6 months.

    my OH is sitting there laughing away at it, every other person they speak to she's saying she's had the exact same thing working on the reception desk

    seems a bit unfair on them what they put up I guess... but that said, there's nothing I like more than a rant at a faceless voice down the end of a phoneline after I've been on hold for an hour
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    Not pleasant at times, but you learn to ignore it, it's also incredibly funny sometimes, esp when you see some of the names people have!

    I've been called all sorts, peadophile, see you next Tuesday, I could write a book on some of the convos I've had!

    What was the program called, and what channel? Might see if I can find it online somewhere.
    From the Southeast? Find your next meet here


    The difference between intelligence and stupidity is that intelligence is limited.

    At least I have chicken!
