Help Re-Create American Jobs

Printer-friendly version

It's the LAW!  

Any time you call  an 800 number - A MUST READ

A gas company brought their call center back to the US from India last year after numerous customer complaints.

It re-created 300 jobs in Our Country.

Any time you call an 800  number (for a credit card, banking, charter communications,  health and other insurance, computer help desk, etc) and  you find that you're talking to a foreign customer service representative (perhaps in India, Philippines, etc),  please consider doing the following:

After you connect and  you realize that the customer service representative is not from the USA (you can always ask if you are not sure about the  accent), please, very politely (this is not about trashing  other cultures) say, "I'd like to speak to a customer  service representative in the
United States of America."

The rep might suggest talking to his/her manager, but again, politely say, "Thank you, but I'd like to speak to a customer service representative in the USA."

YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTED TO A REP IN THE USA . It takes less than one  minute to have your call re-directed to the USA. Imagine what would happen if every US citizen insisted on talking  to only US phone reps from this day on. Imagine how that would ultimately impact the number of US jobs that need to be created ASAP.  Plus, as many hearing impaired already  know, it would be much easier to understand what was being said.

Remember- the goal here is to restore jobs back here  at home - not to be abrupt or rude to a foreign phone rep. And, You may even get correct answers, good advice, and solutions to  your problem - in real English.
