Democratic Capitalist Rules of the Co-op:
These are going to be reveals of sexism, lacking inclusion, and poor displays of compassion. The unfortunate part is if I actualize in both of these employment scenarios. That actually wasn’t something I went through in these environments. Don’t get me wrong. I think they should implement aLiving Wage. I was just treated humanely at these companies if I reflect honestly.
Democratic call centerpieces:
I wish to stumble into my beliefs of Liberal Socialism was a phase. That way it could be just a mindset I could quit. I could leave it and the planet would be fine, median incomes wouldn’t be down and the neighboring Head of State wouldn’t be a dictator. Could you imagine such a world? 😀 “That is the most Utopic thinking you will get from me today.”
This may be surprising to people. I actually don’t think Business & Finance people are the fascist capitalists’ people think. You have a hard time learning about an unsustainable investment, financial, and environmental economy. Then pretending everything is alright with some Grant Cardone style motivational Capitalism. Not a hater, I bought a book of his. I just love using him in my jokes because the guy is so damn cheesy. “I vote my business.” Grant Cardone. Got to love self-help idiots. When we want answers? They give us silly.
The problem is I don’t want to throw out the system of Capitalism. Not at all. I want to throw out the uncompromising stupidity related to the political and philosophical ideologies related to capitalism. That is what is ruining the execution of the system in the proper manner. We have character problems and problems in how we view the environment. We don’t have a Private Property problem. We don’t need to screw up agriculture. We need to fix it. Listen I wouldn’t let a Communist screw up my access to food & water. I won’t let an oil-loving Capitalist do it either!
Anyways I am not a Capitalist. I am a Liberal Socialist. I don’t have time for grandiose Business bull****. As for strong centralized authoritarian governments like in Communism? I don’t think so Kingston Ontario! I don’t want to go through this rampant disease (Coronavirus) again because some idiot doesn’t know to use Bats in their stupid traditional medicine market. Or something environmentally stupid along those lines! Again I don’t care if you are a Capitalist or a Communist. Neglecting our environment is insane! Mixing the Social Concerns of Socialism with the innovative Capitalist values of Liberalism makes sense. It is a compromise that works.

This post will be censored with more ethical language in a bit*** . I do want it to break through though that I take Civility, mental health, and #SuicideAwareness seriously.
Since completing a Business Diploma while looking at Social & Sustainability issues. Then getting trained in CannSell and SmartServe as well as Suicide Prevention. I now believe I can be an ethical friend for someone.
So if you want to talk about mental health. We can talk. Just know I will behave ethically in Conversation. To some people this a calming thing. To have a friend behave a moral guide. I have had multiple moral guides as friends. I do believe it is something we can do for each other that helps to make the world a better place.
Also, shout out to my Grandma. I think mental health dialogues were an idea I got from my Grandma Pat. Anyways I find moral friends to be a calming concept. I always mention my love for some of the Mormon culture in my family. I do think the Mormon religious culture was where I developed some of my Community & moral values. Even if some of it evolved with my academic life.
Email me at Ashtonderoy@gmail.com if you need to talk.
Ashton Deroy writes: This is a conversational blog. That being said I will not censor who I worked for. In compliance with privacy regulations, I will not recall customer names or any details of accounts. Here is how it is though. If I worked for you or your client I am going to write about it. The only damage I can really do is alienate myself from the telecom industry. An industry I decided to retire from as a matter of health.
That is just a fact of life. In my call center career, I have worked for StarTek, Hinduja Global Services, Concentrix, Stream, Teleperformance and AND Agency. Some of this will also be from my recollections of memories & personal storytelling as is custom with many blogs.
Call Center: Teleperformance
Problem: Phone out of service, requires fixing right away.
Okay so in this call picture an afternoon, where I am already high on caffeine pills in Downtown Toronto by Eglington at Teleperformance. I talk to the lady on the phone and she is upset because her phone isn’t working. I tell her something like we will get a tech out there a month from the call. She starts screaming, “This is unacceptable! I want a manager!” I hung up… No, I will not win any Tech support of the year awards for that. Why did I hang up? Well, escalating is pointless in tech support. Managers can’t credit customers more, they don’t have magical call taking powers that make a technician available. I just thought rather than drive up my call handle time with a pointless call flow I would just hang up! SLAMMED
“Sorry, you have no phone service but there is nothing we can do as a service vendor.”
Call Center: StarTek
Problem: My bill seems too expensive. Debating the company accountant!
Okay, so this was an early morning call-in Kingston. This customer calls in and he says his bill is too high. This is a business service line I am working on. Turns out this guy is the company’s accountant and after 1 hour of examining this lunatic’s bill line by line. He is ready to go again. I am autistic and I have a learning disability related to math. So I just, go ahead and hang up! SLAMMED!
“They paid me $11 an hour. That is hardly enough to justify learning math at the accountant’s level.”
Call center: S&P Data
Client: Shaw Cable
Problem: I am a telemarketer!
I was telemarketing at S&P Data in Trenton. Basically, my job was to sell a home phone line to Shaw Cable customers. This was my second job after getting a certificate in Digital Marketing & I hated it! So, as usual, I call someone’s home. They let me do my full sales pitch for some sadistic reason. Then the person just starts going ape s**** on me! I mean they just let me have it. Explaining how I am such a foreign piece s**** for calling them in Alberta and they don’t even know me! Then I am asking them to buy something. I can’t say I blame them but the rant went on too long. So I hang up! SLAMMED!
“In parts of Alberta, it is a bit of custom to gain personal relationships with Business salespeople. The anonymity of call centers has been largely criticized as a poor way of approaching business relationships & in many places Telemarketing is an offensive practice.”
Listen I was never an employee of the month at a call center. If I was that certainly would not be as interesting to write about. I think the worst thing about these places is, me hanging up on the people I did was not that irrational. The customer at WindStream tried to abuse me with hierarchy, the T-Mobile customer abused me in relation to capacity for logic & reasoning & the Telemarketing customer simply scolded me! Phones have a hangup option for a reason. I am damn proud I pressed it.
Want to read a positive workplace story? Read about my experience working for Hawkins Cheezies. Like anybody living on the edge, there are winning points in my life where I show true character. Then there are other times where I have to bail on my responsibilities for one reason or another.
Ashton Deroy Writes: Hey readers I have the opportunity to seek employment again after leaving HGS for being a bad fit. I am releasing my resume again to allow for me to be indexed and for me to be head hunted. I have always maintained I am a talent in the workplace and I deserve to have employers competing for me. Even though I was at a call center I was a bad fit for. I want to continue on the success of 2018 when I was working at 10 Fitness and continue to build my employment success.
If you can think of employment I am a good fit for. You are welcome to grab my resume link above and forward it to employers seeking talent. If you have any questions, please contact me at 647-850-6802 or email me below. Again I consent for viewing parties to send my resume to potential employers.
