If you have the skills and are current with your training, ATT is desperate to hire. A lot of the dead wood has been cleared out, and a lot of the know-it-all older workers have been, let's say, "given an offer they can't refuse". This leaves the... — read more
This is McRotten's new catchphrase he's been trumpeting. Shows his complete ignorance in the business world. Business 101 teaches you can't grow a company thru cost cutting and layoffs. In fact , just the opposite History shows when a company... — read more
I find it pathetic how in the town hall he stated at the beginning that “even with covid-19 we are still on track to meet our projections”. That may not of been the quote verbatim. However, that’s the gist of it. Nonetheless, the company still... — read more

To think this way is to see oneself through a AT&T's eyes a piece of data on a balance sheet. Meanwhile, low morale continues to weaken engagement, decline job satisfaction, and commitment in job performance. THE WAITING GAME.
a lot of people in for huge changes...
They timed this perfectly! By having people leave on July 1 they effectively made sure that nobody applying for unemployment benefits will be able to get the extra federal COVID money (about $600 a week!) for more than three weeks, as the CARES... — read more
