Thread regarding HP (Hewlett-Packard) layoffs

Jobs going to India

A lot of work from Vancouver and Boise is being moved to India, affecting contractors. Not sure about HP positions, but I would suspect some are being off-shored as well....

Work moving from Boise to anywhere else is a moot point. The current seven year lease with the State of Idaho will not be renewed. HP Boise will close up no later than 2024.

This not a good thing.

After I purchased my HP ENVY last year, I had an issue with restarting taking a very long time. I went to HPQ Support page and a India Support wanted to have access to my computer. I really do not want some to access my computer but I let them since it was from HP Support. Well, they did a bunch of changes and NEVER TOLD ME what they did -- my Wifi stopped working and also my bluetooth, etc.

They also did a trick TREE SCAN that I saw before when SCAMMERS tried that on my work computer saying they were from HP IT Support. At the end of the scan it said: "SSL CRASHED COMPUTER COMPROMISED ….NETWORK NOT SECURE ..SECURITY REQUIRED …. COMPUTER AT LEVEL : CRITICAL!!!" But I do not know what else they entered in the TREE COMMAND LINE to get that message.

NOTE: I did not have any virus, because I did a full scan with Norton Security + Windows Defender and Malewarebytes software for all three. No virus - so they lied to me so I can contact HP JUMPSTART and pay for them to remove my virus which I have none. I believe is also a trick to gain access to your computer.

==> THIS IS A TRICK TO GET YOU TO PAY HPQ FOR VIRUS REMOVAL and to contact HP JUMPSTART!!! But when I was scammed earlier on my work computer they told me I have to purchase a virus removal software. ☹

They all work for HPQ and I believe HPQ is not ethical because they never returned my calls to inquire about the scam! ☹

Sadly, they can hire 6 resources in India for the cost of 1 US resource. These resources in India rarely stay in a position for any length of time - constant turn over and poor quality. Folks in India supporting the US are working in the middle of the night - not ideal, so they look to move to another team that supports Asia or Europe that aligns better with their time zone.

Cut costs - increase profit. Really short sighted business model.
