Topics regarding layoffs at CenturyLink
CenturyLink still has a lot of work to do. But for now, it's doing right by more than just its public shareholders, having contributed $500 million to its pension plan this year. Sooner or later, the company will have to find a way to generate... read more
I've heard something might be happening this week, but there was nothing concrete behind the rumor so I'm hoping it's fake. Anybody knows more here?
They forgot to put the 0 after the 2 when they first announced the workforce reduction. Outsourcing and contracting is the game now.
I know Centurylink is not giving more then a day or two, or hours notice before laying off employees. Getting rid of all older employees and getting rid of union workers. I heard today that the company want to let go of all CTL IT before next... read more

I am told Internal IT is being let go in 90 days. Company will contract out internal IT work.
How come 911 went down in Mpls/St Paul yesterday? It was down for 6 hours on Sunday also. Not good for CTL
Same 30 year people that spend more time trying to find a way out of doing a job then it would take to just do it then lose a customer in the process and then want to b--ch how screwed up the company is. Same ones that don’t don’t do this, don’t do... read more

What does it say about CenturyLink if somebody who has been here for close to three decades is praying to be laid off? Once upon a time this was a really good place to work at, with management that appreciated its employees and their hard work. Those... read more
Just as Forest Gump famously said "Stupid is as Stupid does" and as Jenny said to Forest "run Forest run"
Postponed until October 31st.
Anyone heard of new monitoring software being deploy across all company computers? Rumor is they are looking for people who might be surfing to lay off. I know a lot of people stream music while working so I guess may have to get the old walkman out... read more
Vspp offered again in Phoenix metro for broadband and net techs. Only have 10 days to decide
It’s because management is moving the Craft people around to fix their numbers to protect management. There is no reason to bid early. Other than to fix the numbers of how many employees under which manager. Management is trying to protect... read more
Anyone know when next RIF is happening and which centers are affected or closing? Any changes and dates would be nice. Employees aren't being told anything or flat out lied to. Hard to plan for the future. Thanks for any info you have and best wishes... read more

Here in Phoenix the original numbers regarding the surplus were: 40 Net Techs 10 CDT 15 COT Yesterday we are now being told that they only want to surplus 4 net techs and remain the same on the CDT’s & COT’s. Has anything changed in your areas?
Haven't filled out a job app in 30 years. Hit the part where it asks if they can contact current employer and i choked. Since we are all on thin ice I was afraid if they contacted CenturyLink And they found out I was looking they would get rid of me... read more
Getting laid off was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. I just hated having to relocate my kids, but the facts are I was extremely underpaid. That piece of paper I earned in college is worth a lot more to good companies, and I'm... read more
The reductions are not over... we are going to continue to lose employees by the dozens each week around the company. 5 years from now this company will look and feel completely different from what it is today. Unfortunately the business model must... read more
Apparently, there was a meeting with upper management where they were unaware of the fact that they had to have all contractors gone two weeks prior to layoffs. They didn't know that they couldn't hire contractors back for two years after the layoffs... read more
We are in Arizona. Our companies are Wise Connect and ITC Service Group. I'm curious about the Florida area but I'm sure others want to know about where you are too.
A cash drain with no reasonable return for shareholdes if fixed.

Why in the world would Centurylink hire AT&T door to door salesman? Not only that, but we just had one stop by our house and the guy was rude, argumentative and disrespectful! No wonder they are losing customers.
NOT! You now have thousands of ex employees spilling the beans on how you operate and how you treat long time employees! Most of us will not return to make this work as a contractors and we are letting everyone know if you have other options to... read more
Tech appreciation a month before the lay off finishes.
So a 911 center calls me directly because they have my cell. Tell me, we called CTL because we have a big phone cable laying on the road because of an accident and a lot of your customers are complaining the are out. They told us 5-7 days to get... read more
The company will probably look things over in 3rd quarter and make adjustments in 4th quarter when they normally do. Thinking its over for now.

Layoffs are no where close to being done, expect them at the end every pay period from now until 2019.
Union guys, only excuse stolen pairs. We're the only people trained in copper. Stfu already. Underground work is only for us. Lol. Initiate phase 3.
But still having layoffs here.....
This is the avenue for the union vs non union comments. Please only put whats happening at centurylink unions or what you are hearing is going to happen. Glad we are all grownups here.
