Separation date will be no later than February 15.
On call restricted to Cable and only Friday thru Sunday.
Seeing "some" people doing the same jobs as before but carrying new Job Titles. Is this just a likely gimmick/tool to help HR or Supervisors determine who stays by moving the chosen keepers into the new category. Those in the old... read more
Does anyone see the need for this group? Where I work the only time I see their van move is when they need to go shopping on company time, or going to an unmanned CO to go on a netflix binge. This is also the only place I know that has a prem group... read more
How is it decided who gets cut and who stays? I'm really interested in the entire process, considering that our best people are getting cut and some of the worst who barely do any work (or know how to) are still here? How do you make these decisions?... read more
Anybody heard of any of the Engineering positions being targeted. They never replace anybody that leaves and attempt to farm everything out more and more.
This has been a short time coming, as Centurylink does not want a union company, and we don't see the union fighting to keep employees working. Customer service has actually been down since Centurylink took over Quest, employees saw it happening when... read more
CenturyLink has asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for permission to retire copper in areas of Minnesota and Nebraska. This is happening everywhere. There are articles on the internet of other telephone providers filing with the fCC to... read more

Looks like DS1 repair in a Seattle will be moving to Salt lake and force surplus to that group. Voluntary separation packages were also given to the Seattle provisioning testers. Rumors that there will be more voluntary packages given within the next... read more
This is what happens when you allow H1B visas like CTL did ... they start an offshore subsidiary company in India ... and now you have the entire IT department being outsourced to India and the average wage is lower than working at a burger joint in... read more
Construction....any that are left will receive VSPP offer tomorrow 1/9. (All of legacy Qwest)
What was your final date to turn the paperwork in for the EIPP Pkg in your state ? Were you advised already that you have been accepted and given a final date? Or are you still waiting?
Anything about Decatur's wholesale going away?
So the official word on the outage came out yesterday after they finally figured out what to say. BAD NETWORK MANAGEMENT CARD in Denver Colorado Central Office generating frames across the network. Yeah. Surprising, it doesn't sound like they have... read more
So how many took the retirement packages?
Well this is the last day to put in for the enhanced package. It’s a big decision, but if you’re ready, it’s not. It’s a pretty good package. They may offer it again, or they may not. It’s either yes or no. It’s a yes for me. Good luck to all.
So does anyone know or heard anything about the next round of layoffs? Where, when or who? With FCC investigating the recent outage and a massive fine no doubt looming just wondering how many will be let go to make up that $$. Just waiting on my pink... read more
https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/2429976002 They deserve it! But the customers dont.
There is a link between Century Link and Level 3 (126.96.36.199 -> 188.8.131.52) that is dropping like 90%+ traffic between the West Coast and East Coast. kudos Qanon and Anonymous
Shut down the whole US. I bet the contractors will get that up in a few days.
02/2018 I got 28,000 and change for 3 weeks short of 20 years. It was hard to go but after a few weeks it turned out to be the best decision I had ever made. No stress, No more BS, No more threats of being laid off daily, the list of reasons never... read more

I got my company Christmas card today in the mail... it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. 😂 Apparently we can’t afford those either...
So what in general is the typical employee severance package offering for a 20+ year Employee. 6 Months Pay? What happens if you dont go voluntary but get axed later, you get zero?
Do you think they will offer the VSPP package at the end of 2019? They offered it in 2017 and 2018.
What was left of the already downsized DSL group got notice this week. All done, supervisors too.
I want to know when the layoffs are going to start hitting the call centers. We are all holding our breath knowing it is just around the corner. Our work has gotten so slow and our customers are all porting to L. Qwest or other Clec's. We have pretty... read more
The package came out yesterday. The rumor is it went out to 3000 employees. My advice. If you can, take the package and enjoy life. If your not ready, stay. There is some debate whether another package will be offered again.
The company has lost most of it's knowledge. No respect for the tribe elders, and a bunch of management from the top down that think they and their little chosen few know better than anybody else. This is not how successful companies operate, those... read more
I think we can all agree that working here in any position is stressful. Constantly layoffs and the decision to outright cancel the Christmas bonus doesn’t help morale. When we talk about it being slow right now, the company has artificially slowed... read more
