Currently I am working in a BPO(Business process outsourcing), I don't like to work in a Bpo at all. I hate Bpo, I have plenty of reason to hate Bpo.Since they want to run business 24 hours .They ask the people to work in shift basis .Rotational shift is one of the disadvantages in Bpo. I lost my peace-less sleep because of night shift.They put so much pressure on people and pay very less amount.This field welcome any graduates .Because this job is not at all subject related .All my study knowledge are waste.I hate Bpo. Do you like BPO ?.

I think you need to change your attitude towards this industry..BPO has lot of potential if you want to use your knowledge.. The advantage of having a rotational shift or 24 working is that you can choose a shift of your choice but of course you should be one of the person who has been with the company for a long time.. BPO is also a good salary paying sector..specially if you are a normal graduate. For any person who is say a Bcom graduate can earn upto 30,000 per month and sometimes more than that, but this is very hard to achieve if you are working in a non BPO sector.. As far as using the knowledge that you gained from your education... BPO sector has many different departments/ sections that you can explore.. Knowledge is never wasted if you know how to use it...

I neither like nor hate BPO. There are advantages and disadvantages of this kinda jobs. First I will tell you the advantages. If there is any job that is immediately available in a developing nation then that job is essentially a BPO job. It pays you good so it lets you live with style. But as you grow old you discover that this is not what you actually wanted. But that's a different story. This kinda job certainly fulfills one's all basic needs. Now lets talk about the disadvantages. Take me to a bunch of people having conversation with each other and I will tell you who among them is a BPO executive. The BPO needs you to talk incessantly, so even after you give up the job, the habit stays. Sometimes you talk to the extent of being disgusting. When BPO executives call, they pose an artificial tone. This tone is practiced so much that it gradually becomes a habit. This affected manner of speaking sometimes sound really arrogant, insensible and even weird. Doing job in BPO for long may actually take away all your ability to adopt yourself to your social environment.
