GMA 7 sa Davao, pinalakas!

Isa sa pinakama­lakas na programa ng GMA 7 sa Davao ang Testigo, hosted by Tek Ocampo na corres­pondent ng GMA 7 for several years pero two years ago, nagdesis­yon siyang bumalik sa Davao para maging anchor ng Testigo.

Galing sa pamilya ng mga pulitiko si Tek, kaya naman during the elec­tions ay ma­rami sa kan­yang nag-con­vince na tumak­bong vice gov­ernor. Pero hindi siya pina­ya­gan ng GMA 7.

Hindi naman nang­hi­­hi­na­yang ang TV host dahil maganda ang rating ng kanyang pro­grama.

Napapanood ang Testigo daily 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. sa Davao.

Admitted naman ang GMA head Re­gional TV, AVP Ex­pan­sion News and Current Affairs na si Ms. Rikki Escudero na hindi pa sila nag-no. 1 sa Davao pero tinatrabaho raw nila. Like ang Tes­tigo, since nakita nilang malakas ito, dinag­dagan nila ito ng oras.

* * *

Anyway, sa ginanap na Kapuso Day sa Davao, isa sa pinaka­patok ang job fair. So­brang dami raw ng nag-apply at marami ang instant na na-hire.

Nagkaroon din ng libreng gupit, libreng kodakan, NSO/DFA in­formation and process­ing at marami pang iba kasama na ang marami nilang artista na du­magsa sa Davao last weekend.

Kasama sa dumayo sina Dennis Trillo, Nadine Samonte, Iwa Moto, Keempee de Leon, Ehra Madrigal, Pauleen Luna, Marky Cielo, Lani Mercado, Sherilyn Reyes and Manilyn Reynes.

Nang kumanta si Den­nis, sigawan na talaga ang tao sa NCCC Mall.

Pero mas grabe ta­laga ang tilian kina Dingdong and Marian Rivera nang magsa­yaw ng Marimar. [source of news]

HELP US PASS THE WORD!!! SAVE YOUNG DAVAOENOS’ DREAMS AND FUTURE.

I am an employee from Western Wats.
and fortunately still IN the company… However, in the coming week or two, I might be out…
Yes… true, Western Wats is a good company… UNTA.
Just imagine…only 6 hours of work… with free meal…. and you get p10k??
Isn’t that great??! As compared to other call centers here in Davao who pays php6500++ to php8000++ as the basic pay… here’s how it is…

COMPARISON
Other Call Centers

–8hrs-8.5hrs of work
–BASIC PAY:
p6500-8000/month

–(NO FREE MEAL)

–HARD ACCOUNTS

Western Wats

–6hrs of work ONLY—wow!!
–BASIC PAY:
p10,OOO/month–for Davao agents that’s way over board already.
–FREE MEAL
–SUPER Easy Accounts—-you just read, that’s it.

COMPARISON
Other Call Centers
–Stable accounts.
Meaning you have a fixed expected work to be done, which would mean you work full-shift.
–LOWER taxable basic rate, but more NON-TAXABLE incentives.
–Lower Basic rate means lesser tax…
(Performance incentives like QA grades, meeting quotas, perfect attendance, etc.)
-BIGGER night-differential rate.
-with Night Allowance
-Hazard Pay.
- (for some, if not most) rice allowance, clothing allowance
-with health benefits w/in 6months probationary period.
-Team building in-compay’s expense.
–respects the terms of your signed contract…

Western Wats
–Unstable account—no specific company handling and providing projects (jobs)
Meaning NO project means NO job, NO job means NO work, NO work means NO pay.
-We’re sent home, paid half-day—–at least. BUT being this way most of the times?? No way.
–No Night allowance
–SMALLER night differential (before I get P1,000+ with my previous call center job, now I only get P400)
–Seasonal work load… Wats is done USING us during the US political season (we were doing political surveys then, not to mention the push polls LEANING on one candidate or party—out of the issue)
–HIGH basic pay—P10,000.00— but don’t get hooked by the figures people.
–Lately… since it’s been a month of always going on half-day—-what do we get?? P5,ooo for this month??
–LESS (NEXT TO NONE) INCENTIVE
–When other call centers give p1200 just for having a Perfect Attendance in a month, p1500 for good QA scores quarterly, and gift checks or gadgets for hitting Production… You only get it as one in Wats. If you have Perfect Attendance, above 85% QA grade and over (yes! Over) 100% production rate altogether, it’s only when you get to have P1000 on that month. Nice! After all your effort, that is only what you get… To compromise, if you fail one (1) or two (2) of the criteria and at least been able to pass one criteria, don’t worry… you still get a sachet of coffee, a lollipop, or a chocolate… there’s a lot to choose from.

So Here’s The Main Thing…
Since your Taxable rate with Wats, is P10,000 then the net pay you get for your pocket is lesser. With almost no additional pay and incentives, you actually get less than p10,000 a month. With other call centers, since you have a less taxable pay rate and a lot (I really mean a lot) of additional pay… you actually reach at least P10K, if not more…
Now that the US political season is done, Western Wats Davao is receiving less (next to no) projects. And among 200+ agents available on the floor or 30 to 40 agents per team, they only need 2-3 agents per team to dial the minimal surveys available… which means, It’s another (mandated) half-day “option” for the rest (they always use the term “option” to at least waive that it’s on our own will to go on half-day when it’s really not). And lately, 3 to 4 agents are being terminated every week… Is it the agents’ fault for not being able to hit production if there is none to be produced??
There were people who applied last September and October and was told that they pass and ready for training… and guess when their training will start??—-It would be On January or Febuary 2009. I believe nobody could wait that long, and I’d bet that most, if not all of those people have already looked or even hired to another jobs.

Western Wats is among the “pioneer” (BPO) company here in Cebu. However, in December 2007, many were surprised with the massive lay-offs of its employees.
Some “ineffective” employees in any call center will be terminated. In any company, it happens that “ineffective” employees have to be terminated. However, what happened to Western Wats was very shocking because it was mass lay-off and according to reports, there was no clear reason for such mass lay-off.
Bobby Nalzaro (GMA-Cebu) wrote in Sun Star Cebu:
“Though Western Wats is an American firm, its management should follow our labor laws. There are rules to be followed in terminating employees but company officials, some of whom are Filipinos, refused to follow them. They dropped their kababayans like hot potatoes. This is oppression.”

Western Wats is a company that really is the biggest data collection company. But late 2007 a lot of people got fired. They even ended up in the column of Bobby Nalzaro in Sunstar daily. They do pay well. 16k for b2c agents thats from 4am to 12pm and the b2b shift get as much as 22k but its either you are in the uk shift or the u.s. b2b shift. Free meals but no medical insurance till you are regularized. Just ask people in Cebu. Good luck in not getting dissapointed @wats.

Talk back: Western Wats issue
By Suzan Sussie

The US is indeed in economic turmoil. That probably explains why, despite President Arroyo’s claims of a stronger peso and a better economy, we see a lot of companies downsizing, i.e. laying off regular employees.

Downsizing is a defensive strategy to protect company assets and preserve profits under unfavorable economic conditions.

It is a given that businesses operate for profit. And it is management prerogative as to how to carry out such strategies to fulfill their duties as steward of company assets.

However, in doing so, management must not prejudice the rights of employees or carry out their purposes to the detriment of others.

Philippine labor laws specify the grounds for termination and procedures to carry those out. In carrying out its purposes, management must take care to abide by the substance of the law, not merely its form.

My impression of the situation in Western Wats is such that management has not given the employees due notice when it terminated their employment. That’s bad and that really pisses me off.

It might be an American firm but it is doing business in the Philippines. It should not only abide by our laws, but also RESPECT our culture and traditions.

In my book, laying off employees during the holiday season is inhumane. Where’s the company’s sense of social responsibility in that?

It’s high time that we, Filipinos, stand up and fight for what we believe is right.

To the affected employees, if you believe your dismissal was unjust, seek reprieve in our legal system. Don’t just take it.

If you don’t stand up and defend your rights, nobody will.

Nalzaro: Layoffs of employees in call center, 2
By Bobby Nalzaro
Saksi

I DID not expect that the article I wrote two weeks ago about the termination of the services of employees in Western Wats, an American call center based at the Mactan Export Processing Zone (Mepz) 2 in Lapu-Lapu City, would trigger reactions.

Some of them criticized the decision of management, calling it inhuman because it was done during the Christmas holidays. Others defended the decision, saying the laid off employees were ineffective.

Mike Cohen, a US-based journalist, even emailed me asking if the termination had something to do with the coming US presidential elections. I don’t think so.

Until now, however, there has been no official word from the company’s higher ups as to the real reason behind the layoffs. The services of hundreds of employees were terminated before Christmas and more workers are expected to be retrenched.

The firm’s US-based officials, including its new president, were here over the weekend but they refused to issue a statement. Sources said Western Wats, whose main headquarters is in Orem, Utah, was sold recently to another company, its third owner since it began operating in early 2000.

Western Wats Philippines started its operation in 2003 with 300 employees. For the past years, it was doing well, employing some 1,700 employees. The questionable acts happened only last year.

The services of new recruits, trained for as short as two weeks, were being terminated. Some of them were from Mindanao and other parts of the Visayas, all carrying the hope of ending up having a good paying job after relocating to Cebu.

The employment contract of probationary employees specified that they will be evaluated after a month of training and then five months later to determine if they will be hired as regular employees. But most of them were laid off within two months.

Last November, the company reduced the number of teams by moving some employees to other teams and terminating the services of others for no apparent reason.

Some supervisors were demoted to the status of agents for lack of teams to handle. Others were told they were ineffective. This caused demoralization among the supervisors’ rank, prompting some of them to resign.

Mass termination followed last December. The company said this was because of gross inefficiency. But an insider said there has never been a written standard when it comes to production that can be used as ground for termination. And even if there was, the employees should have been given due process before their services were terminated, especially the regular ones.

What was insulting was that the employees were just verbally told about the termination when they reported for work. No official memorandum was issued about any violation they committed. Worse, there was no mention about separation pay or whatever benefits that can be claimed upon termination. That is why some dismissed employees went to the National Labor Relations Commission.

Though Western Wats is an American firm, its management should follow our labor laws. There are rules to be followed in terminating employees but company officials, some of whom are Filipinos, refused to follow them. They dropped their kababayans like hot potatoes. This is oppression.

FINAL SAY:

LET’S NOT ALLOW THE CEBU INCIDENT TO HAPPEN TO US HERE IN DAVAO, FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO HAVE A GOOD, SUCESSFUL, HUMANE CALL CENTER EXPERIENCE, WESTERN WATS IS NOT THE PLACE… THEY PROMOTE CAPITALISM IN A VERY GREEDY AND SELFISH MANNER. LET’S WORK TOGETHER AND SAVE THE FUTURE OF OUR YOUNG DAVAOENOS. HELP US SPREAD THE WORD. I’M SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF ALL THE INNOCENT TERMINATED PEOPLE WHO CAN’T SPEAK OUT.
