Regular readers of Techgoss are well aware that a large number of our articles are crowd sourced. People send in tips, story ideas and even articles. Many of our contributors have full times jobs in IT-ITES, and so prefer using a pseudonym. A well informed TP Tipster tells us
On March 17, 2011 we lost a Tech Support Adviser, Tin* from the Adobe Support Process at Teleperformance, Gurgaon. The USA shift is between 5:30 pm to 7:30 am India time. An average shift is about 9.5 hours long.
Adobe monitors our call quality and they overheard Tin* say: “Sir, you have to call back as my shift is over".
Adobe sacked her for violating their high standards on how to speak to their clients.
Should she have been given a stern warning / final warning rather than be sacked?
Tin* - Techgoss had her full name and other details but is withholding these details at our Tipster’s request.
