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.

Obviously automated switchboards save companies money, but you’ll be on hold an average of one minute and 51 seconds.  That’s more than TWICE as long compared to a company that doesn’t use them.

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