    [Roy receiving a tech support call, answers after 15 rings with a sigh]]
    Roy: Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?
    Roy: Well, the button on the side, is it glowing?
    Roy: Yeah, you need to turn it on.
    Roy: The button turns it on.
    Roy: You DO know how a button works, don't you?
    Roy: No, not on clothes.
  • Other phone job, I dread to think ! LOL o/j


    Yesss I dread taking the calls too! ;)

    Tech Support is better than W*****g support :eek:
  • Hi guys, I passed the computer spec test and got the email advising me that the workbooth cd is on its way. Did you guys get the phone call before or after the cd arrived, as of yet I have had no phone call.... ?

    Cheers.


    I got the call BEFORE the CD - I haven't received the CD and the Guy told me it would be sent after today (next phonecall).

    Hi, did you notice that another window opens up where you have to put your hirepoint id, name and email address?

    Just a thought,

  • I thought I was going to fall at the first hurdle there for a minute! I just did the pc test and it failed me first time, said our network wasnt fast enough :mad: This is quite true as though we pay for up to 8 meg, we only get a palty 1 :sad: The strange thing about it though was that I had the laptop plugged straight into the router via ethernet when it failed. It only passed after I went back to wireless again :confused: I would have thought it would have been faster plugged in! Maybe tech support isnt for me lol.

    Like peacock3022, I got an email saying I am being sent a cd next and will be phoned if my pc passes the next test. Maybe its because the lappie failed the test first time around?

    Good luck everyone applying :D

    Hi there - just a quick question. I was about to start the computer testing when a pop up told me that it was from an unverified digital signature. Does anyone know if this is a problem. Don't want to download dodgy software! Does anyone actually work for these people - I'm a little concerned that it could be a scam!
    Thanks

    It isn't a scam. I got told it was a threat too. You wouldn't get so much training and checking if it was a scam. Were you asked to send £50???? :D
