Me either until I goggled it:

"StarTek is a leading provider of high-value outsourcing, customer care, technical and product support, and customer loyalty solutions."

I was caught it in the technical support outsourcing rage with several major employers, including GE and UAL in the late 80s and 90s.
I was signed back to the same company’s under contract by the outsourcer. It quickly became obvious you get what you contract and pay for in this type of environment, it looks good on paper until you get what you pay for.

The trend seems to be now in insourcing (as Star TEK is seeing) as I'm now back with my formal company.
*we even outsourced then insourced our 1st line help desks in Brazil and USA after major customer complaints.

StarTek is a good company to work for. Based in Denver with offices around the US and Canada. In my previous job we did some recruiting work for them and their call center isn't the typical grind em up and spit em out outfit.
