Winnipeg Call Centers

Cruel and Unusual Employment

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
This is a live journal that I created for the use of citizens of Winnipeg who, for one reason or other, happen to be employees of any of the many call centres.

This is a place for us to discuss issues related to our line of work, relate to one another on differences and/or similarities in the various call centres in Winnipeg, and generally come together as a community unified in our inability to find respectable employment.

Please post anything at all that you'd like to post.
