Here's some thoughts for you my friend..

I started as what people call an "answering machine" "human IVR" etc.. but I didn't get dissapointed though so here's what I am now.. just to encourage those agents who might be reading this :)

-I'm just in my late 20's and my salary is almost the same as my dad's, he's 54.
-I'm just 2 steps away from a director position.
-I have "worldclass" training under my belt. And the training doesn't stop.
-I'm getting tired of travelling to the US and and parts of the Phil.
-Skills that I have learned from this industry can match that of a director of a local multinational company.

-lastly, you get tired of shopping on paydays.. and this is with your own hard earned money.. hehe

What buknoy have posted are all true. That's how "we" laugh it off as our way of releasing stress. If we don't do that our lives will be boring as hell..

what's there to envy? hmm....
we have a rather easy job that pays well
we are able to help customers
we can buy our own stuff
we can party anytime we want
we get to surf the net
we're always in an airconditioned environment
we don't feel "useless"
we earn as much as or more than a normal breadwinner
"girls" ....can't get any better than this? :upside:

*With the current state of our economy...we're just thankful that us "human answering machines" have a good paying moral job.

also i think you've been misinformed, not everyone who works in a call center takes calls. research on the meaning of this.......
*team leader
*I.D coordinator
*facilities manager
*quality evaluator/assurance
*I.T
*etc.........

I'm in my early 20's and i can buy whatever I want, save up for those expensive stuffs & what's my position? I'm just a level 2 product specialist who gets around 4 calls maximum in 1 day & gets to surf the internet 80% of my stay in the office............ and what is my target now? to be like nine"


mind me asking? what do you do for a living? <_<

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Just put i his way chipmaker, with the amount of money they pay you, it was as if hey have bought your time.

How I approach it is that I make it a point not to stay longer than I have too. I may sometimes stay for 12-15 hours a day but I'd take 3 days off after that. The beauty of a management position is that your main function is be answerble to everything that your client and the big boss asks about your ops.

It can take long hours or maybe not but if you can go home and be confident that you are on top of everything, then I dont see any reason why you should extend that long. Same goes for TLs like tantantinin....just my 2 cents :headsetsmiley:

Well said, but I think these guys have nothing againsts call centers, its common for people to criticize what they dont understand.

For those who are thinking of backing down on their applications, you may want to rethink that again. Because I dont see any way how you can get big rewards without making BIG sacrifices.
The one thing I agree with this industry is that people here get what they deserve (compensation-wise) for the work that they bring in. You think other industries compensate you well for the s**t you will get?

I've been working for almost a decade in all sorts of industries (banks, insurance, holding cos., etc) and I must say each one has its trade-offs.

Pressure and stress is part of working pero I've had the most fun in a call center environment...and the rewards are great.
