So sorry to hear. 

Do you work for my company?  I think I posted here that my company gutted our IT dept. My team went from 4 to just me. Two had been there 12 years.
Good luck in finding your new path.
Companies suck.

No I worked for a private customer service company called Suresource. We had around 100 clients and 200 or so employees. We recently lost our biggest client Kitchen Aid, which led to the layoffs. My department of 3 got cut down to 2, I worked in returns.

Let me just say this: Call centers suck.

I have been working in call centers since I graduated from college and have been bouncing from one to another since then.

What I can't stand about them is not the idiot customers calling and talking to you like a slab of meat and like you are dumber than they are, but the management of the call centers who act like everything is most important thing ever.

I can't tell you how many 'meetings' I've been made to endure over 'metrics:' basically, it amounts to bum-rushing people off the phone who are too stupid with their money and/or can't comprehend basic written or spoken English.

I don't really consider call center jobs to be work unfortunately....due to these hot-shots with MBA's that I have to report to. Also, due to the boneheads who think it's a great idea to consider it 'work' and ship real jobs overseas like manufacturing and everyone is reduced to selling hamburgers to one another.

Still, I'm sorry to hear you being let go.

I hated the call center, I was in there for 8 years. Though if I stayed there instead of getting promoted I might still have a job. SWEET IRONY.

I may be joining you soon Viperblaze/Smug Bear. My current job is on a 'pilot program' and there is talk of the program ending on January 31st. That date came and went and no one has been told to leave...yet. I thought about asking the project manager about the status of it but I've decided that's a great way to get asked to leave regardless.
