5 Years later… Dialogue on StarTek in Kingston Ontario.

Malicious intent

Ashton Deroy Writes: Even After 5 years later & a return to Kingston Ontario. I still have a bad taste in my mouth when people mention my ex-employer StarTek. I mean I don’t know why? They were so “perfect” to me.  Maybe it was the lack of schedule control, the fact they pay under the living wage or maybe it was just the fact that creatively speaking I would deal with their terrible customers all day & then the manager I had would chuck dog s*** at me!

It is worth exploring in a full-blown style essay. Why am I still upset with StarTek 5 years later? I guess you can say I almost never dealt with them properly. Maybe today helped though when I called the company’s Human Resources department & told them 5 years later, but I am still pissed. The first thing is the lack of schedule control. People have families & Social lives. Yet time after time StarTek unnecessarily cuts careers short because people are dealing with family issues, childcare issues or just mental health issues. Damn it StarTek, why should I not call you and tell you I am pissed?!

The living wage for Kingston Ontario is $17.57 hourly. Not $15.50 you cheap pieces of s****! You represent T-Mobile and it is a seriously bad reflection on them that they can not pay their employees a living wage. Again this is adequate aggression coming from me. You have 0 right in the public’s eye to act like another corporate Tyrant! Pay your people a living wage & realize that it is not up for debate.

Creatively written: Lastly, why would I be happy about a place where I was bullied by customers then bullied by management? Like I said it is pretty much like I was being picked on by customers on the phone 10 hours a day. Then when I got off the phone…. My manager made sure my mouth was open wide so she could huck in dog s****! Yes, it is reasonable to be reviewed as an employee, but what happened to me was a systematic beat down.

To StarTek:

Kiss my a**! My friends were considering you for employment and I just wanted to share my true opinions. No, I do not think my friends should work for StarTek. I consider my movement an outside intervention on behalf of the workers of Kingston. Do better, I am not afraid to say you need to do better.

(613)-888-1958 is my telephone number. If you have a concern with my blog feel free to text me or call me. Yes, I indeed called StarTek’s human resources department today to say “5 years later & I am still pissed.” I think it needed to be said. I am still asked about StarTek and this act of civil disobedience was to say, “I have reasons to feel the way I do about StarTek.” This was a very upsetting experience for me.

I believe call centers starting back in 2015 beginning with StarTek played a role in my downfall to a road of drug addiction, self-harm and suicidal behavior.
