Just heard from a contact at Barclays contact centre at Sunderland. The trainer featured on Whistleblower has been sacked and the rest of the call centre staff featured have been told not to come back until Monday. All hell has broken lose and they're having meetings left, right and centre to sort it out.

Hello, new to all this but felt I had to make a comment. I used to work on the Barclays 'outbound' department at Doxford park, Sunderland, that was featured in last nights Whistleblower.

The 'account executives' were still using the same sales speel that we were told to use 6 years ago so its not like its a problem thats suddenly surfaced, its been going on for years.
