customer service Here are Ten Companies That Actually Use Real People to Handle Customer Service Calls


Everyone hates calling customer service and getting that automated switchboard that goes nowhere . . . while they tell you how important your call is.

Yes, there are still companies that use HUMAN BEINGS instead of computers to answer the phone.
