    Default Comcast Eliminating 1,000 California Jobs

    Comcast yesterday told reps from their 3 huge call centers in California that they will be closing those facilities down at the end of November and that those employees can apply and relocate to other states' call centers.
    Having been in that business for 20 years, this is what that really means is:
    Yes they can go apply to a few other call centers in other states but are they really going to relocate for a $9-11 dollar an hour job? Plus those jobs are really back fill positions as they are always hiring in their call centers because they cannot keep people at those jobs. What it really means for the company is that they will outsource more of their call centers to the Phillipines and Mexico and good luck trying to talk to an english speaking rep.

    They will use the excuse that they cannot "afford to continue doing business in California", but in reality its just another case of corporate greed and sending more jobs out of the country.
    'Old Van Halen, when I was in it-classic Van Halen-makes you wanna drink, dance and screw, right? And the new Van Halen encourages you to drink milk, drive a Nissan and have a relationship.' - David Lee Roth.

    I despise Comcast.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!
