Dell closing Ottawa Call Centre

Just got a call from my wife about Dell closing in Ottawa. This’ll put a real strain on the Ottawa tech market to try and pickup the 1,000 plus jobs that just disappeared.

I have a couple of good friends who worked there, and they had nothing but good things to say about Dell.

Sounds like they called them all together this morning, with about 500 gone immediately, and the rest gone by June/July. They’re keeping about 100 on to support the Ottawa sales team. Hopefully everyone I know is in that group. But I doubt it.
