New Quota Thoughts?

So the new quota consists of new voice lines and upgrades only to multiply rather than pull thru/strategic to help you out. We don’t get voice lines, no one comes to switch, and our new plans are overpriced. How are we and management going to make... read more

Be careful if this is you

The standard is if you've been with the company 20 years, you are over the age of 40, and you make more than 60 - consider yourself available to be toast. Exactly what was said here. If you can tick of two (or God forbid three) of these categories... read more

So it appears IBM won the outsourcing deal of Verizon IT or most of it. This is how the company screws its employees out of the severance packages and saves money. You go work for IBM for a year and 70% of people get replaced and your years of... read more

BGCO Call Centers will NEVER go HBA

If you want security in call center work, get to a BGCO center. That’ll entail moving to Maryland, Atlanta, or Salt Lake City, but they will be the last centers standing. Everything else is just quicksand.
