Reaching a Human Being in U.S. Corporations


If you have some gray hair on your head, you will probably remember the days when companies used to employ telephone operators to handle customer service rather than stupid automated phone systems that leads the customer through tortuous corridors toward dead-ends or endless loops.

Navigating through these complex mazes and reaching a live human being in a call center in some far-off land, is often the hardest part of the journey toward customer satisfaction. I know this situation very well because I used to work for a Call Center in Panama.

Many times I was approached by very irate customers asking, “Are you a machine or a human being?” They were sick and tired of going round and round in a never ending loop solving absolutely nothing. They desperately wanted to talk to a human being and get their problems solved.

If you are having a hard time with IVRs (Interactive Voice Response) in the United States and want to find a way to avoid these irrational technological labyrinths, I have good news for you.

The Gethuman 500 Movement has been created from the voices of millions of consumers who want to be treated with dignity when they contact a company for customer support. From its inception, the “gethuman movement” has been an all-volunteer effort to improve the lamentable state of present day telephone customer service. These persons decided to organize a Web site specifically to solve customer service problems.

This web site includes the necessary steps to bypass the automated system and direct your call to a live customer service operator of numerous U.S. corporations from different economic sectors.

The Gethuman 500 Database includes U.S. companies classified in the following categories:

  1. Credit
  2. Finance
  3. Government
  4. Hardware
  5. Insurance
  6. Internet
  7. Mobile
  8. Pharmacy
  9. Products
  10. Shipping
  11. Software
  12. Stores
  13. Telcos
  14. Travel
  15. TV/Satellite

I’m sure this information will avoid you many headaches in the future. High quality customer service is the name of the game. Do you agree?
