my uncle always tells them that he`s homeless and they were calling on a street phone, then he pretends to have a mental breakdown and threatens suicide if the telemarketer hangs up. :D

I work at the Thrifty Car Rental. Here`s some truths about our call center

>Luckily, the calls were inbound, NOT outbound
>Many customers are still rude, even though they called us, not we called them
>Hanging up on them is a mixed blessing. It lowers their talk time (a good thing), but it also lowers their sales and their sales:call ratio (called a conversion rate)
>Working at this kind of call center doesn`t suck that bad, but sometimes you feel like strangling the customer over the phone lol
>People that work at call centers are required to follow a very specific call script. If you really want to annoy them, ask random questions, LOL

That`s what i know

lol! I i get raided by these calls everyday i get about 5 a day and ill i do is just leave the phone. If its someone who really want to talk to you then they will leave a message and then you pick up before they finish. You see if you do this for a while the calls will get less as they think you are not on that number but if you pick up they will think there is someone at the other line.

Okay, seriously, somebody`s gotta post a transcript for all of us out there who a) don`t have audio, b) are from Australia and don`t understand the English accent, or c) can`t hear over the laugh track!!

Oh, P.S. whenever I get Telemarketing calls, I interrupt their opening line with a "Can you hang on for a second?" and then I just put the phone down and go about my business. See, they can`t hang up on you! So, last time, I forgot, and by the time I remembered, about 45 minutes had gone by. When I picked the phone back up, the CSR couldn`t wait to get off the line.

LMAO! my family doesn`t get those sort of calls (we legally got tooken off the list) but that`s funny.

I know, it`s their job, but sometimes people get real annoying about it and really keep insisting you listen even if you say it`s a bad time.

... and, the only call we really ever got was at 1 am and I was the only one awake and was all "WTH!!!" I picked up, they said they wanted to sell some sort of cable. I just said "GO. TO. SLEEP." and hung up.

Actually I`ve worked for call centres in the UK, and sometimes you really do have no choice but to go for these jobs, they can be the only jobs available for the hours/days/location you need etc, and when you have to work these jobs and have to make these calls, people making it hard for you dont help matters, because you usually have to list them as having not listened to the call/received info and so have to list them to be called again another time, by someone else, who will get the same abuse, so as I said, be mad at the company who make people make these calls, not the people themselves who are just trying to do a job and earn some money, its not a job people aspire to go into now, is it?

"As I said, these people are just doing their job, its their company you should be mad at, not them, and if you`re nasty to the telesales agent it`ll just make them less cooperative and more likely to list you as someone to call back and try again with, and they`ll keep doing that every time you`re rude or hang up instead of listening what they have to say, and cooperatively working out what they want, and how to stop their calls."
as I said... thats really no good reason. unless someone is forcing you to telemarket, you deserve any rude commets you get for choosing that job.
also, if they do "retaliate" to the rude treatment, and call more at bad times and such, that IS NOT "just doing your job". and so, you deserve even more any tormenting you get, for tryingto do the same to others. if people are rude to you, take a hint and leave them alone. im sure you wont sell them anything legitly anyway.
im sorry we cant be perfect and patient like the te

I was a telemarketer for about two weeks. Those were the worst weeks of my life. I made good money, but I wanted to kill myself. I was telemarketer for DISH Network. Horrible experience.

and thank you, BigBonny for sticking up for those riteous (sp?) telemarketers.

But seriously, what was that about. Telemarketers are nice and the company isn`t? Last time I checked, the company isn`t holding them hostage and they chose that job.

No?

frankly ... hanging up on the telemarketer does them a favor, it lowers their handling time, which increases their productivity thus doing the company itself a favor .... if yuo want to piss them off, just start having random conversations, if necessary, throw on a song and sing along to it .... i work in a call center myself and could care less about call time, i like hearing how people try to drag out the call with useless information. It only sucks when the people you want to hang up on, you cant

Oh recording, not pre-recorded... gotcha!

And to the girl who said "I hang up on telemarketers half way through", thats really not a good thing to do. As I said, these people are just doing their job, its their company you should be mad at, not them, and if you`re nasty to the telesales agent it`ll just make them less cooperative and more likely to list you as someone to call back and try again with, and they`ll keep doing that every time you`re rude or hang up instead of listening what they have to say, and cooperatively working out what they want, and how to stop their calls.

another thing ... if you don`t want companies calling you anymore, get on the do not call list (in the US), also tell the companies to take you of their list & they are required to do so ... if they still call you can sue them for harassment

omg, that was so freakin funny ...
the guy was talking to the telemarketer, he recorded the call & just made all of that poo up

The laughing was kind of annoying, but I lol`d anyway. We used to do that to telemarketers. We once told one that our dad had just gone to the bathroom for the first time in a week, and that if we disturbed him he`d be really angry, and the guy was like, "Ehhh... let him enjoy the moment." Too funny. 8D

Working in radio, I can tell you one thing: the laughing is previously recorded in and added into the show. Bob and Tom don`t actually laugh like that everyday during their show, they just do it to show it is a comedy bit.

"I`ve worked in call centres. Its not the telemarketer`s fault when they ring you, they`re just doing their job to get paid, doing what they have to do etc. Have a go at the companies instead."
thats a bad excuse. unless someone is threatening you to work there, it was your decision.

"...although...this was on a tape recorder ready for a telesales person? How would he know when to pause and whether the caller was male etc?"
i think what he meant there was that he recorded his calls with the telemarketers, not that he played a tape to them

Nice. I`m gonna try that next time. Not sure if I`ll be able to do it without laughing. Unfortunatly (not intending racism here) Most of the telemarketers who call my house aren`t english, and don`t speak English that well.

The laughing was annoying.

That was great, especially as that guy really had a `cop voice` if you know what I mean.

I think he took it too far at the end though, he should have just said someone would be in touch or something, and left it at that :P

Pretty funny, but I work in a call center... all inbound, I don`t call people and bug me, it`s the opposite! I work for a major bank, and people do still get pissed off... like when he was asking for the address and all that, I had flashbacks too :/ No way in hell I`m giving out where I am, even the city or state to anybody if they`re pissed at me!
