I am at the tip of the spear in the outsourcing world. I work in America for an Indian owned company. Many of my American coworkers are lazy pieces of chit. 50 year old tattoo artists, sleepers, former meth heads, biker chicks and so forth. I get so angry when they complain about “India taking our jobs” in one breath, then fall asleep at their desk. I won’t even go into the costs associated with not being able to fire some people because of a so called mental health issue, or because of their race. We get a half inch of snow and 1/4th of the company can’t make it into work. We have 500 pound people in their late 50’s complaining about India taking their jobs. Makes me want to puke.
yeah, well I’m at the base, and I can tell you, indians make adequate drones.
A lot of the types you describe sound just like the crowd BofA hired to change out all their equipment in SC.
One or two sharp ones but the rest were questionable at best and some outright worthless. The same endless hours of leaving mountains of trash piled up and waiting until very late to test stuff drove me insane.
I am doing a contract help desk job that is questionable at best for a few months. That crowd is rather strange and I will take it day by day. It is at chemical facility and no matter how much the air is conditioned and scented, the base odors still register.
I also work part time at a data mining company branch on weekends. It doesn’t pay very well but it is a great environment. There has been talk of trying to expand the place but who can say.I would like it very much if it would.
