So far I've only been able to get a lot of excuses for why I haven't been promoted here. Chances that someone will be promoted here through their hard work and commitment alone seems to be zero? At this point I can only say I regret putting in... — read more

The constant whine on this board amuses me. You guys take this nonsense too seriously. It’s a paycheck with benefits ! Milk the company dry! Get paid , get as much OT as you can and go home and enjoy life with your family! Quit worrying about... — read more

I anticipate seeing my lump sum drop 20% when segment rates reset in November. I’ve already hit “modified rule of 75” and was planning on leaving in next 3-4 years. Just curious if many will leave this year in order to lock-in the high lump sum. ... — read more
Has anyone received a connection award in 2022 yet?
AT&T is cutting thousands of technician jobs in the Southeast Friday… What are the chances this is true?
