Haunted Call Center


This is a compilation of stories from different employees working in the call center where I used to work. Our office was located in a building that was converted from a warehouse to two story office building situated in Cebu City, Philippines. I was at first skeptical about ghosts, but I am now a believer. After all the stories and first hand experiences, I now believe that the office is haunted.

They said that when the area was still a warehouse, there was a family who lived there, where the mother and her daughter were brutally killed by her husband, who later committed suicide.

It was twelve noon and I was still taking calls when I saw a reflection of a little girl on my computer monitor, wearing a Sunday dress, pass behind me. When I turned to look, no one was there.

Then days after, I heard that one of my male office mates was in the men's room when he saw the door through the mirror adjacent to the john slowly open. When he looked back, he saw a little girl sitting on the toilet bowl. He looked back facing the wall and closed his eyes and prayed the Lord's Prayer, "Our father." When he opened his eyes, he saw the little girl sitting in the wall urinal in front of him, reciting the prayer with him. He screamed to death, running out the men's room.

I also had an experience when I was sleeping under my workstation (even if it is not allowed, he he he he) that somebody choked me in my dreams while I was asleep. When I woke up, I saw my hands reaching out to my co-worker's foot, as what I had in my dream.

We have colleagues who can see the unseen. One time, my co-worker who had an open third eye, saw one of our co-workers who was taking calls in the corner of the office, under the wall-mounted split-type air conditioner with a man who she can only see. He was hanging from the air conditioner where his neck was tied with a rope. Apparently, this hanging man was staring at the girl below him, with his foot touching her head.

One incident was when two of my co-workers snuck in the training office. It was Sunday and there was no trainers there during Sundays. The two guys connected the chairs for them to lie down. One guy decided to go out since he was not comfortable with the area, while the other guy decided to sleep. The guy who stayed did not realize that his friend went out. When he called out to ask him to wake him up around 4 am, a little girl's voice answered him, "Yes, no problem." He got up and ran outside where he found his friend on his workstation. They went back to the room and found no one.

There are also incidents in the ladies room where they can hear a woman crying, singing or even calling their first names. People who are in training can hear whispers. Some can see faces reflected in their computer monitors. One of the managers has ashes on her work station even if she already cleaned the area the day before. She was told by her seat-mate, who has a third-eye, that she can see a burnt man who keeps visiting her work station.

The haunting kept on going for the next three years of our stay in that location. Fortunately, our company transferred to another location where we finally have our own building. Some employees claim that they can still see the little girl.

Super freaky call center buildings are really common if you ask me. Call center owners have a habit of "recycling" buildings that's why we normally encounter paranormal things more than any other person in the working society given the schedules we have. Our building here in Manila also has 2 resident ghosts. I just pray everyday that I do not get to ride with them in the elevator or see them peeking at rest room doors. 😕

I can relate to this one. I'm also working in one of the call centers in the Philippines and ours seems haunted as well.

Gossip roams around the office saying that any pregnant woman who would see a ghost child in the restroom would lose the baby in her womb,, many of our officemates confirmed it that after they would see the child,, they would go bleeding...
And also on our sleeping loundge,, this ghost child would always show up on the dreams of the people that would sleep there.
They said when they are just building the place, a child from a nearby subdivision fell in one of the holes in the construction area and was buried alive.
I hope I would see that ghost child,,, nyahahaha... Just kidding...

Love lots'
Rayne ❤ ❤ ❤

hello Grox6, yes, it really is sad on what happened to the mother and the kid but I don't think I am capable of helping them. The least I can do is pray for their souls.
Whitebuffalo, I heard that they saw a little girl with the same description but I not 100% sure if it the same girl.
Bone_Ribbon, unfortunately, I cannot divulge the name of our company here but all I can say that we are the Pioneer call center here in Cebu.

Hi Mau!
What call center is this?

Old buildings are just full of spooks. We have some ghost stories going around our building here in Manila as well. 😉

Oh now see, is that not the sweetest thing? This little girl who recited the Lords Prayer seems just like what she is, a Spirit (some liken SPIRITS to angels as they have made it to The Other Side and come back to visit whenever the mood strikes). I would think that she was also the helpful spirit who wanted to make sure your co-worker was up by four.
I would say that the one who had you feeling as if you were choking would have been a Being trying to warn you that what you were DOING was a big no-no.
The Others, I would think to be residual haunts, as they made no direct communication with anyone. The female ghost in the restroom is a bit "iffy" as sometimes, when people "hear things" their name is not really what is being said, but it is what is received.
Your office moved. This little girl is still seen in the OLD building or in the NEW building?
Thank you.

Wow this was a very creepy story. I liked reading it. The part with the man closing his eyes in the washroom and saw the girl oppisite to him was scary like hell. I would have gone mad if that happened to me. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

I wonder if it's easier to see things like this when you come from a culture that believes in them. Here in the states we are less apt to believe until something hits us where we live. I do think the place is haunted by the tragedy that occured there. Sounds like this child followed the workers to another building. Hope someone has the sense to tell her to go to the Light and hopefully the mother spirit will accompany her.

It is not suprising that acts of such a violent nature with both the murders and the suicide woul linger. How sad and terrifying it must be for the sould trapped on this plane!

Lol, ok, I'm sorry, but that little girl sounds adorable. Wonder if she actually would have woken your buddy up at the right time.

Terrible that there are spirits there that obviously popped in some pretty traumatic ways, but they don't seem disruptive, just curious.

It really was very scary lildevil215 / sonic freak and to think that our time of work is always on graveyard shifts. We have operations 24/7. Its a bit funny though but when we asked the guy on what she looked like, he told us that she was practically normal but the skin looks like it was starting to peel.

I agree lilblackpom, their souls are unrest. What I have heard that there are also instances that there are things that got lost in the office like cellphone or even documents. They say that the little girl and the lady will not do any harm but it is the husband who we named "john" who keeps on bugging us.

Hello mau and thank you for your story. It does sound haunted all right from this family considering the terrible killings and suicide of the father. They just aren't at peace. It doesn't sound like they mean any harm but definitely need help to enter into the light so they will find peace. Very unsettled.
