Call centers

I went to an on-line account and on entering my details was told that my
account has been suspended because it hadn't been accessed for 6 months.
After a bit of searching around I find the FAQ and the 0844 24/7
support number at 5p per minute.

I ring the support number which gets me through to the Indian call center.

I explain the problem and then get the 5+ minutes of the scripted
identity and security questions.

Only afterwards I am then told that if I press the "forgotten password"
link on the web log on page there is an option to unblock the suspended
account.

Is it not possible for call center staff to use their initiative and
give the simple answer before resorting to the script on their computer?

Each of their calls is monitored to make sure they follow the script
from the start. If they use their initiative they risk being fired.

I've been working in an overseas call centre for a few weeks and
sometimes it is just as frustrating for us. The calls must be handled
in the way in which the client has requested it be done, which means
we have to follow the script as written.

We get monitored to ensure that we are handling calls as we should.
Any attempt to deviate from the script and simply use common sense or
initiative is forbidden. Don't blame the person who answers your call,
it's not always his fault.

Did you look for an arternative number, maybe 0800 or a geographic
number?
