    The joys of working for a Multinational company -

    "Iíve just got off a teleconference with an Indian man, a French man and a Chinese woman.

    Everyone talked a lot.

    I have no idea what anyone said.

    They couldnít understand each other either.

    That was an hour well spent."


    True story......

    Not surprised at all. Let's not even try to discuss customer service that has been outsourced, ok?

    Agreed... I think we're all angry with that concept.

    Sounds a lot like my meetings most days!
    Our business has seen many of the Cust service outsourcing coming back to the US after failing miserably. That said, now they are outsourcing many of the tech jobs instead

    I had a PHONE INTERVIEW with someone from an off-shore call centre who could barely understand what I was saying.
