All employment agencies have a "blacklist". Many DSTer's on it...

There is a "city wide" employment agency "blacklist". Recruiters all know each other, go to networking events, pass each other names of good candidates for referral fees. However if your a "bad apple" most all employment agencies will know that - even if you have not sent them an application. There is an "off the record" list that gets undated : showing all difficult, demanding, short termer, discontented, temperamental and unqualified candidates. So if you burn one employment agency by walking off a job, or turning one down at the last minute, or doing something the client doesn't like and getting axed - or SUING - then your most likely on the blacklist. But then you probably know that as no employment agencies will respond to your resume. Does the obvious need to be explained?

DST used to.....

When I started decades ago, DST would give you an advance on pay. All you had to do was ask your manager and he would do the rest. Then they started downhill and stopped that.....

More to come.

More layoffs coming. One business unit was told by management how bad it was in an effort to be "transparent". The next slide in the presentation was three new V.P.'s were just hired. No loyalty, no promoting from within. One business unit promoted 5 men last summer, no women. Also, if you are over the age of 40, be wary. Notice how many folks were let go last fall over that age. Also there have been many long tenured folks over age 40, let go since last fall as well. All good performers, positions were just eliminated. This company is drastically downsizing!

DST Managers should never do this!

Never make a person pay for a mistake they didn't make! Blame the specific person that actually wrote the bad code - not someone else! Because employees will undermine a Manager who mindlessly blames the wrong associate. I have seen it many a time!

Not the time for blame

Dst's philosophy....blame first. Find blame for any problem. Much later if ever...collaberate with staff to correct system problem.

DST South (Sprint) just layed off 465 in its OP location

"DST South" aka "Sprint" just cut 465 people in O.P. KS. Nows the time to buy a house in Blue Valley - at least 200 homes will be agoing on the market! DST is a fine organization to hang at, just don't take it seriously. Its a nice place to hang for a year or two till you find your dream job. That's what I did.

I think DST is a typical place - get what you put into it

Its an average company. Work hard, treat fellow employees with respect - then you get somewhere. People do have a reputation here. If your a great person everyone knows it. If your a jerk people know it. How you treat others WILL impact your success. Nobody likes a jerk.

I too like the DST

Yes, I too like the DST. Its is a stable and well planned organization. The task is clearly cut, the work is there. In addition it allow me to live inside the United States of America. If you have lived outside of the USA, then you know why I value my residency here. There is no corruption, there are laws to protect all classes of people. I am treated as a human being. That's all I ever dreamed for.

DST is a great place to work

I have been treated very well at DST. Have received promotions almost every year, nice raises, and have been given positions of responsibilities even before I was ready for them-so I could grow into them. I am constantly commended. Help is always there from my superiors. The key to success is to let it be know you "enjoy" this company. To many people here make negative comments about DST and believe me those comments are noted and remembered. So if your a malcontent, whiner, outwardly unhappy - don't expect DST to go out of its way for you. Team players are appreciated.

What happened to the DST "Blacklist" of former employees?

I worked for a placement agency. DST had a blacklist of former employees not eligible to re-hire. Kelly Holder had it in her desk drawer. Does DST still have a blacklist policy? Kelly gave me a copy but I misplaced it. It was many pages long with the "reason" for disliking the former employee. Seemed very petty to me.

HR = Nazi's

It probably was DST's HR that took down the posts about Marc Fagan. You have to understand, the whole reason an HR department even exists at any company is to prevent and minimize expensive litigation against the company. HR people know this. I noticed that the post calling for all complaints against Marc Fagan was also removed. So it's not just a slander or defamation thing, it's move to protect the company. Maybe HR recognizes Marc Fagan to be a lawsuit waiting to happen (sexual harassment, discrimination, etc), and taking down those posts was a way of preventing or delaying that. Either way, somebody's feathers were ruffled. Somebody's cage got rattled - just from some anonymous post about an idiot. That shows the power of words and ideas. That's pretty cool.

My husband was treated poorly here at DST

My husband was treated poorly by DST. He is happy not working here. The management is poor at best. Some have been here since the 1970's. Its supposed to be a Rockhurst crowd, but even their grads get little respect.

There are books on how to make a manager look really bad

Just go to the net or a bookstore. many books on how to ruin your manager's career. at a former job, I waited till the manager left for lunch (his PC was still on) and using his PC, sent a nasty email to the President of the firm, criticizing all management decisions. Then after it was sent, I deleted it from the "sent mail" mailbox. He was fired the next day, never knew what hit him. Next manager was a sweetheart and was so kind to all...... Its worth taking action to get a good result in the longrun.

Tritt's wife

Tritt's wife, Louise was a $7.50 per hour customer service rep in mutual funds area, then met him and she became a manager at DST. Then married him after the catholic church annulled his first marriage and that's the whole gold story! She liked how ostermeyer ran his motors in reverse on his boat to spin it fast at the lake.

Tritt is leaving finally ! Its time!

About time he is leaving. He has been at DST way too long in my opinion - just cause dave ostermeyer liked him is no reason to decide back in June 1981 that he should stay forever and be promoted at every opportunity

1985 DST stock IPO

Correction: It was 1985 when DST issued stock for $20. per share, then it dropped to $10.00 and DST bought it ALL back. Hallmark Cards employees had their pension administrator put a sizeable amount in DST stock. Guess what the drop did to their defined pension accounts. Google the story - its interesting and I think Hockaday was instrumental in it......
