Saw this advert in PHM and it has given me the right hump. :sad: :sad: :sad:

Any operator that thinks paying £3 an hour for call staff, even if they are in another country, deserves to be put out of business.

And the quicker the better. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

constantly getting emails from them the thing is that it would be useless to a firm like us as how would they know the customers where the drivers are etc.

I think they would pretty quickly lose you trade not gain it

But it could be a country where a pint of beer costs 30p, a litre of petrol 15p, a meal in a nice restaurant £5, a 4 bed detached house £5k...etc.

My concern isn't what those in Asia are getting paid, my issue is the fact that people in this country aren't getting paid due to those jobs being exported.

Quite.

How often do we hear punters moaning about their bank using Indian call centers?

The call centre is in Islamabad. I doubt they sell much beer. :mrgreen:

Absolutely jammed solid with cars waiting to pick up so couldn't find anywhere to drop off and the marshalls just standing around doing nothing :roll:

There are two lanes, I suggest drop off in the right hand lane.

For the record you can drop off in the multi storey as you get 10 mins free, and that includes the large vehicle area at the end.

If the Marshalls were actually marshalling then all cars could drop off in the actual drop off zone

and the high sided vehicle park is now almost impossible to use because it's full of contractors vans and hire cars :roll:
