    My job has been outsourced, for a dollar can you guess where??????

    Yes, that's right, I have joined the legions of IT professionals who lost there jobs to that exotic land around the world, India!

    my employer in all its infinite wisdom has decided that i cost to much. This post really has no purpose other then for me to vent, and i have already been in contact with old managers and associates in a attempt to find work before i am given my official pink slip, but i ask you what good does saving the company money do by sending work overseas if no one in your home country has any money to buy your product, because they cannot keep a decent job?

    If it was not for a manager "accidentally" sending off an email to the wrong distribution list (including myself) containing details of the entire project I would not have had any notice of the event. Now at least i have till sometime between mid December and mid February to find work. They would have not had any regard for the lives of the people affected, now i am around 9 months from finishing my diplomia (currently taking 18 credits) planning my wedding for next September and I have to find a new job in my career.

    3 years wasted.

    grrrrrrrrrrr.

    Sorry to hear than man it sucks

    I don't gewt why the hell they movie this **** to india its so damn hard to understand them that more money is wasted cause u take twice as long to get it all fixed.

    Im going from personal experience almost all telcos in australia have india as their call centre and its a bloody joke serious it might be cheaper but they lose customers cause of the trouble trying to understand them and the frustration.

    Serious i had a guy from india call up saying iw as gonna get a free phone and i keep asking what the catch was and he goes oh its got a colour screen a great camera blah blah and then when i said no he got all ****ty with me.

    Im sorry to hear about that man but i tell u there will be ALOT of complaining about it all.

    thanks guys.

    @NIN - dont worry it was not a public helpdesk so you dont have to worry about adding another possible foreign desk to your possible phone calls.

    It was a internal remote support for another company. (i doubt they are going to be happy with the change though)

    Sorry to hear about it alti.
    They are talking about outsourcing my work to China All because we cost too much. But it doesn't stop the CEO increasing his salary and benifits!! Don't get me started!
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    Sorry for laughing, but AHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. That was the best joke I've ever heard from an Indian, ever.

    Sorry to hear about this. At least you have a couple months though, right? Thanks to your retard manager.

    aight dude hear me well, if u get fired; find a lawyer, a good one, go over ur contract or what ever u signed with the company and let ur lawyer or u find something to fight for and sue them. Discrimination of race? disabilities? it all works there have been a case where a woman sued a company because they fired her when she found out she had breast cancer which is notthing to laugh about. i know this is not the case with you but if you find something let you lawyer know and win the money! the breastcancer woman won 800k btw
