Random IT Surveys

Friday, May 16th, 2008

I hate phone surveys. Not a week goes by that I don't get at least one random phone call from some ESL call-center slave. These surveys take like 20 minutes and are made up of these ridiculous 15 part questions with things like having to rate on a scale from 1-9 how specific phrases apply to our infrastructure or how likely we are to purchase technology X in the next 3-6, 6-12 and 12-24 months.

Today I got 3 of these survey calls. During the last one I finally said that something came up and hung up on the girl because I couldn't stand it anymore. Sometimes it's so tough to understand what these people are talking about since they're speaking a mile-a-minute and with terrible accents; it was giving me a headache.

Sometimes they offer money to take these surveys, which is really the only reason I even consider wasting my time doing them. Sometimes they don't tell you until after if that is the case, but it's usually between $10 and $30. At least that's what they say, I can only honestly remember getting a couple of checks and a couple of Amazon Gift cards.
