Signs That You Might Lose Your Job in the Call Center Industry

Working in the call center industry could give you a fruitful career however in this industry we are also vulnerable to losing our job. During my 9 years stay in this industry I have encountered two (2) company acquisitions and one (1) employee lay off. Listed below are some of the signs that I have observed before losing my job. 1. Too much avail time – We know that avail time is awesome because it’s one of the moments where we can relax and make ourselves free from stress however, too much avail time is a sign that you are about to  lose your job because less call means less revenue for the company. Avail time is acceptable if it's a Holiday on the country where support is offered however, if you are working in a call center without calls then think again  because you are not working in the government sector where doing nothing is normal in most offices. 2. The calm before the storm – Before you get axed you would feel this silent treatment. The management seems to be s

Movie Teaser Video: English Only Please

English Only Please is a movie about a foreigner who's seeking for a tutor to teach him how to speak in Filipino language. The movie will be shown on December 25, 2014 starring Derek Ramsay and Jennylyn Mercado. As part of the call center industry I had a great time watching the movie teaser.

See the Funny Youtube clip below and check how Jennylyn Mercado nailed it. We all now that call center employees are having a hard time to follow the English Only Policy rule in the workplace.

Glorietta’s House of Glow Fiasco

It’s that time of the year again where we dress up our kids for the “trick or treat” activity; as a parent who were born in the 80’s I want my kids to experience the yearly event because during my childhood days we don’t practice the said activity.  When I was a kid I always have that desire to go on “trick or treat” the idea was introduced to me by the movie E.T., who doesn’t want free candies right?  Though “trick or treat” did not make it during the 80’s and 90’s, I didn’t feel bad because my yearly October and November childhood days were spent flying a kite. Yesterday’s “Get Your Glow On” event at Glorietta Mall turned out to be a frustration for some parents because it appears that it’s much disorganized. It all happened after they fail to give out the loot bag “A Bucket  Full of Glow” which was scheduled from 10AM-12NN. According to some parents they have already anticipated the number of participants so, they showed up to the event early to ensure that they will be able
