Funny story from IT Support

Yes! They do happen!

One of my old colleagues told me a hilarious story last night.

This multinational PC manufacturer is using a recruiting company to hire IT tech. support agents.

Ireland is full of them.

This company (HP) wanted to drug test a whole desk! They suspected a wide use of illegal substances.

Fact is that only two on the whole desk did not smoke weed. Many of them comes stoned to work!

The recruiting company refused the request from the company (HP). Because they knew that if that happened, they would have a hell of a time replacing 50 agents.

Now to give you a little insight in a call centre environment, here’s a little clip.

Enjoy!

  1. hehehehhe.

    Har selv jobbet på kundesenteret og har vært bort i mange rare folk. En inviterte meg til og meg opp på hytta når kona ikka var der:-)

    • Hmm…

      Har ingen forestillinger om hvorfor.🙂

      Litt bakgrunnshistorie for denne. Det jobber IT folk over hele Irland. Vel, Belfast, Dublin og omegn og Cork. IT folk fra hele Europa. Eventyrlystne 20-åringer, tumbleweeds (slik som jeg), og eventyrere (tumbleweeds), samt globetrottere og skrivekyndige.
      Noe mer laid back folk skal du lete lenge etter. Og bongen er en sentral del av denne kulturen. Når et multinasjonalt selskap forlanger direkte inngrepen i enkeltmenneskers privatliv, så satte HR foten ned. Av respekt for dette rekrutteringsselskapet vil jeg ikke nevne dette ved navn. Husk, jeg er fremdeles “på markedet” mens skrivingen går laaangsomt framover…
