Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I pick up the phone and the message was slightly cut off the first time:
"Please press 1 if you spend less than $5000 per month, Please press 2 if you have the budget to spend $5000 or more per month and are interested in our Premium Services. Please press 3 if you are interested in job opportunities."
I hit 2 and am taken to a voicemail box. Hit zero to speak to an operator, and I am transferred to the Google Chicago office and leave a voicemail.
Less than 5 minutes later the phone rings again, Google on the caller id. Same message. This time I hit 2 and leave a voicemail.
I just thought the whole thing was pretty strange and was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience?
I just found it really strange that they would call without a person on the phone and use some sort of automatic system to do the recruiting.
People wonder if this was someone playing a joke on me. The called id said "Google", which should have maybe said "Google, Inc" so perhaps it was?
We did make a huge spike in ad spend last month doing about 20x what we normally do, so maybe we somehow got on the radar?
