      One shitty employees attitude should not reflect on the whole company. Especially since they were so quick to either reprimand or fire him. (depends on what state). Good of Linus to pin their response.

      the unplug part always gets me because if you unplug the system the case isn't grounded anymore. So technically you should keep it on and only flip the switch but than again technically you have to make sure it is unplugged to even operate it according to safety laws unless you are certified to work under 110/230/400V Voltage.
      So what is the super correct way, I am just nitpicky here.^^

    Thank you Linus & your whole team for doing this, please do more series like these in the future.
    An idea for example: buying motherboards from different brands because there are many reviews on Amazon & Newegg about DOAs, horrible CS etc, it's almost like a trend to have DOAs, not a single motherboard model which hasn't got DOA reviews. Unfortunately most of the major brands are so full of themselves, they don't honor their warranty!! I think they will only learn the hard way!!!

    I went through the same transfer bullshit with Dell years ago and vowed to boycott them forever.
    After waiting 30 days for a custom PC I received a message saying it was delayed 30 days because the screen wasn't in stock. No big deal, shit happens. 30 days later (60 days after ordering the PC) I received another message it was going to be another 30 days, so I decided to call and find out what was going on.
    After transferring me at least 20 times they ended up transferring me back to the original rep I talked to. When I asked for a manager he said "they left for the day" even though it was a 24/7 call center. They said it was because it was his manager, so I said to transfer me to someone who's manager was actually in at the moment. Ironically after I asked to be transferred they refused to do so and hung up on me.
    Long story short, I ended up having to search for the phone number to a physical Dell building in the US (Texas) for me to get a hold of someone who actually took me seriously and finally connected me to the correct person who could fix the issue.
    The next day Dell cancelled my $2500 order and refunded me the money. Not that I was mad I didn't have to deal with them anymore but that is still fucked up that they would cancel the order after I finally found someone who was willing to help me.
    That poor woman tried everything to get me to re-order the computer going as far to offer it to me for $1500 but I was so done with them that I told her to keep the order cancelled and I went to Sager instead.

    Like 10-12 years ago i ordered an ibuypower prebuilt and it wouldnt give me any picture. I could see in the window that the GPU wasnt seated properly and i called tech support. They seemed to have me talking to someone who knew less about computers than Janice did going into this and told me a number of times that i couldnt open the case and reseat the GPU because it would void my warranty. I was told to send the whole PC back to them instead. I ended up doing it myself and promised never buy anything from them again.

  • Jim Reida
    Jim Reida Před 12 dny

    I can personally testify to Dell's commitment to continuing horrible customer service through 15+ years worth of Alienware products I have owned. my last experience I ordered a custom configure $2,700 Alienware 17 r4 laptop. it arrived upon powering it up all the fans were running 100% this thing sounded like somebody spooling a jet. I spent months back and forth with the forums in the phone tech and being transferred and lied to and then being told they would schedule a tech representative after 2 individual diagnosis phone calls that took two plus hours each. it was I believe 13 months later finally somebody showed up they said they had parts that they needed to replace that were on backorder. the guy showed up he did not have the parts. as it were I rescheduled I brought my computer to work and during my lunch break went through the teardown process with the gentleman watching him come to find out they never removed the plastic protection from the thermal strips. and a couple of them we're actually bent and not actually touching the proper components anyway. The main processor was not seated properly so only about 15 to 20% of the surface area was actually touching the heatsink. I made several calls attempting to get some form of compensation return something and I received nothing but fake promises to call me back. They always transferred me to some very foreign sounding tech support people who wanted to further verify everything six ways from Sunday and told me that they would have to transfer me to somebody else after 45 minutes of just a horrible grammar and speech problems and not being able to effectively communicate. it literally felt as though I had somebody just playing stupid in an effort to irritate me so I would hang up. in the end when I did get in touch with a coherent person they saw absolutely zero problem with them sending me a system that could have very well burnt itself completely up.

    • Jim Reida
      Jim Reida Před 12 dny

      in follow-up if it would be of interest I still have pictures from the process of tearing it apart and then having to buy all new thermal paste and thermal tape/ pads. and again they felt there was no problem with me having that system for more than one year and having that complaint with them for that. and then not getting anything done about it. it was as though they blew me off promising some kind of support to get me out of the return period and then just ignored me after that.

    Lenovo is a fucking NIGHTMARE for support (they overtook HP? I think? So same BS support)....I had an issue with their mixed reality headset and it took a complaint to the BBB to get them to handle it. Now I will give them this; when I took it up with the BBB, they CALLED ME ON THE PHONE and it was someone IN the states that was in a management position of sorts at one of their offices and he handled that shit. But still, it shouldn't have taken a call to the BBB to get the issue resolved.

    Tech support is so terrible because many large companies consider it a "cost center" and they don't really want to give any support because of the expense, but they're forced to have it to remain competitive because other "original equipment manufacturers" (OEMs) give it.

    I worked in a tech support center for about 4 years for a large OEM, though officially we weren't the same company as the manufacturer, but they we were the only one we did support for.

    It can get worse than what you have in this video. We had one technician who routinely told everyone they needed to reinstall windows for any problem in order to get them off the phone. He'd have them insert the Windows restore disk, tap the keys or set the BIOS to boot off the CD and get them started on a reinstall of Windows. Then he'd say "oh, this will take about 30 minutes so I need to get off the phone now." He got a great number of calls per hour, wiped out people's software and settings and helped very few people and actually made their problems worse. He had great "productivity" though.

    The reason some of these techs are trying to get customers off the phone as quickly as possible is because the call center where they work probably has a strict quota for the number of calls they have to take per hour and which is probably very unrealistic. If they don't make their quotas they may be fired. At least where we worked, there was really no really great metric for evaluating quality but it was all about meeting unrealistic quotas to get rid of customers as fast as possible. The tech telling her to get someone else to help her just wanted her off the phone to make his quota.

    The dude sending Janice to sales probably just wanted to get rid of his problem quickly, also, and mark it as solved. That was also a fairly common approach to getting through a call quickly. If they're within 30 days, the customer can return the system. By sending them to sales for a piece of replacement memory (or for a system return) it is no longer the technician's problem and they get to keep their crappy $10/hour job and not get hassled by their supervisor or lose their lousy job which they probably need in order to make rent.

    We didn't always get very good technicians since the pay was fairly low and being on the phone with angry customers all day wasn't so fun. If you had a pulse and had seen a computer before you could get hired. Turnover was really high and management had no intention of doing anything to retain employees. You either got promoted or you burned out quickly on the low-end job of being on the phone and left. The pay didn't match the stress level at all.

    I feel bad for the people that have to deal with the terrible tech support. There are both good and bad technicians, so you might find a different experience if you phone back again on some of these. Being transferred back and forth is a company communication issue. Terrible support is also largely a company issue because the companies generally do the bare minimum they need to in order to remain competitive by saying they have some support while keeping price competitive.

    I had a totally different experience with my Omen laptop (in Europe). I filled in the form, got a call back, the agent asked me some follow-up questions (I had a broken screen, probably the cable). Afterwards, we planned a 2 day window to have my laptop picked up. The courier had a special box ready and took the laptop. After 2 weeks (in which I had some e-mail correspondence), it was sent back to pick up at a local shop, because I wasn't home a whole heck of a lot during that time and my signature was needed. Got an entire new top half of the laptop, and they even replaced the dummy SD card I left out. It turned out it was shipped all the way to their service center in Romania, which is why it took 2 weeks.
    All in all as good as a broken screen experience could have been.

    Insane how BAD support is at billion-dollar companies. Completely unacceptable!!! Tell your stake holders they get 1$/share less and at least provide your customers with basic tech support. I'm flabbergasted.

      Most of the companies in the UK are bringing customer support back into the UK now precisely because the results were so bad.

    Me: My PC has a problem.
    Guy on the phone: Not my problem, go get a friend to fix it.

    I feel like if you get an asian guy as your tech support service just quit the call

    I use to work tech support and I know what that HP guy was doing. It is called handle time. Each time you transfer it brings your daily handle time down. I wish the managers of these companies would stop using handle time as the most important metric. If they would just use first call resolution as the biggest measure then there would be more satisfied customers.

    I just want to say I love Janice for going through all of this. So much time wasted on hold. I feel bad for her at this point.
