    I worked at Verizon for 4 1/2 years and I know from where this guy speaks. I didn't get an exit interview though since my (former) job is now in India, and I had no choice about it.

    Cheers,

    i consider myself a very, very experienced and technical computer person. and i hate it when i called verizon with a valid technical question, i had to jump through 5 telephone menus, wait about 20 minutes on the line, only to be patronized and handheld through the "please turn off your modem, wait 2 minutes, turn back on, open command prompt, run ipconfig release renew, reboot computer, etc" BS.

    and their mobile phone service is just as bad. identical case with ATT.

    ive since ceased business with both companies !

    Yeah, for morons. Hell for a techie is having to call someone else's tech support and go through the nobrainer scripted stuff that we already did.

    What is an "exit interview"? Is this something new in corporate America?

    Not new and the gov does it too. They interview you on the way out to find out what they can change and why your leaving.

    An exit interview is like: "Now that we've screwed up and you're feed up with how *hitty it is to work here and you're leaving...let's ask you why and try to fix it."

    Umm...how about asking what's wrong and fixing it BEFORE someone quits! Oh wait...that would make too much F ing sense!

    Wow...it sounds like he may have been working with whoever this guy got stuck talking to. (Slashdot readers may have already seen this one).

    You really have to tell them that as you start you're problem description. "I'm calling because I have a problem with X. The symptoms are Y, and I already tried troubleshooting steps 1-N in the manual."

    This seems to get you past there 1/2 of the time in my experience.

    I usually just say "I don't want to deal with you, I need to talk to 2nd teir"...that works every time too

    I work in tech support, supporting a company's employees. I have worked both the 1st and 2nd teir and deskside support.. People are nicer to the 2nd teir and really nice if you actually come to their desk... it's weird.. But you can usually tell the people's familiarity with computers in the 1st minute of talking to them.. If they call the computer a hard drive or modem you know you have to go into more detail.

    as for talking to the general public man that's a drag .. I was a telemarketer at one time.
