Comcast Call Centers in Karachi Pakistan

anywhere but America!

I always ask the person on the other end - where they are located. Normally it's the usual suspects, India, Indonesia, etc...Pakistan threw me for a loop, I hung up.

1. AT&T and Charter have at least some call centers in a very strange place.

The United States of America.

Today I had to call both and with each I got U.S. call centers. Not only American jobs, but no communications issues talking with people with thick accents.

2. Why did you hang up?

 

I usually ask where they are and have a nice chat with them about their lives.

9. Yeah, I'm Usually Chatty

 

with foreigners, especially my husband.

But, I decided I wasn't going to chat with a guy who lives in the country that just sentenced the physician who helped us nail OBL to 33 years in prison. I should have asked him about that before I hung up.

13. So, you take your unhappiness out on some working stiff in Pakistan?

 

Whatever happened to "Workers of the world unite!"?

14. With Shareholders

 

Don't forget the shareholders.
The worker bees are only there for their corporate masters and shareholders back here in America.

Hard to unite the workers, when they won't let you form a union or quote Karl Marx.

16. So, who's paying the worker bees here? Perhaps, the same ones paying the worker bees in Pakistan?

4. This must be a new development

Up until a year ago, I had many pleasant conversations with Comcast representatives when I had to call for service upgrades, changes, etc. They were usually very nice Southern women who would ask how the weather was in New York if we had to hold for something. They were usually in North Carolina, sometimes Georgia.

5. Here's a hint for you:

Comcast always has a local phone number that goes directly to a customer or technical service person in the US - usually right in your area. It's not always easy to get that number, but next time a service person actually comes to your house, ask him or her for the local number. It's the one the service person calls. It's not an 800 number. It's a local number.

Here in the Twin Cities, it is 222-3333, regardless of your area code. I don't know what it is elsewhere. When I've called it, the service improved measurably.

8. I'm Married to A Foreign Immigrant Person

 

A non citizen of these United States.

I didn't harass anyone, I just hung up.
I called to get pricing and decided not to do business with a company that hires people in Pakistan. You know, Pakistan where they just sentenced the physician who helped us get OBL to 33 years in jail.

I'll never shop at Loews again, because they canceled ads on American Muslim, and the CEO was a real dick about the whole thing.
I don't shop at Walmart, or drink Coke, Pepsi - diamonds aren't this girls best friend. Have you seen the
destruction diamond mining does?

12. yet you desire to call us out

to help in your harrassment, why not just be annoying to your wife instead of some worker over seas?

While your wife might put up with your belief she not quite human, why should any one else?

I can speak for myself in this, i find your foibles, disgusting.

15. Meh

 

My foreign born husband is quite happy with his American wife.

Forget the worker bee in Pakistan, he works for Comcast, I hung up on Comcast for hiring workers in a country that is not our ally and I'm pretty sure, they are sick of us. Well, except for the huge sums of money we send over there.

I will continue to boycott as many corporations as possible. They sit on their trillions, outsource jobs while the middle class in this country slips into poverty.

Screw Comcast - and as for you Meh!
