Today, after 21 years and 15 days, I was officially separated from Sprint due to organizational changes and cost cuts. Over those years I worked with some wonderful people that became more like family than coworkers. I believe things happen for a... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Sprint
I always appreciate when people share info here, including any rumors on layoffs, but can you please add which region you are talking about? Just putting down the region will not in any way make it easier to guess who you are if somebody from the top... read more
Back on March 9th in the KC Business Journal, Dave Tovar (SVP Communications) was quoted as saying "Sprint will add jobs in sales, network, digital and customer experience, but did not specify how many would be added in the Kansas City metro area."... read more
The company is not letting us know anything everyone is in the dark. It is very difficult to work when you do not know what is going to happen with your job.
After experiencing over 10 years of lay offs. Stressing over if it would be me. Impacting my health and family life. Trying to figure out the method and reason for choosing who goes next. Watching top performers and highly dedicated loyal workers... read more
Any news or updates on the network org? Saw's email seemed to suggest everybody had been notified.
I work for Third Party Sprint and the lay offs have freaked our higher ups, like my District Manager, really bad...
After 12 years of loyal commitment and hard work my store closed and instead of giving me a severance package like I was supposed to get. HR told me that it cost the company too much money so instead of giving me the package they overstaffed me at... read more
I think the vast majority of layoffs are occurring OUTSIDE of Kansas. I worked at a satellite office in Irvine, CA and know that on Thursday 3/15, whole teams and groups not only in Irvine, but also Warren, NJ (and Overland Park), received... read more
Well I've been with Sprint 27 years now and I'll say this loved it from day one have made a very good life from working smart and in my investments so I am truly sorry for those who are losing their jobs but believe me it's not just Sprint it's a lot... read more
I've been watching this play out for a couple of years. Sprint being led down an expensive and unneeded path, while not listening to their employees that have the needed experience and have proven track records. Watching execs being blinded by... read more
You can see it on Kansas Works website. The link is below. Just enter Sprint in the search box and adjust the dates so it shows 2018 dates. Overall two notices have been filed, just about 500 layoffs have been reported - this is in line with what got... read more
Soooo glad I no longer work for sprint. What a horrific company. It was such a black day for all of us at Nextel when that will advised merger came to fruition.
I’m hearing there will be a decision made on National Retail by this Friday for lay offs. It’s funny that they laid off people on the indirect channel and not NR yet. I’m curious if anyone else has heard this.
At this rate Sprint will be small enough to be gobbled up by T-mobile another provider or call it quits. I doubt a lot of talented people will want to work for Sprint in this economy to help them get out of there hole. Continuing trying to free up... read more
Apparently people in the Finance organization are being notified today.
This is going on so much that people have coined a term, "Stealth Layoffs." Not just Sprint, it's going on everywhere the past year or so. Some say it seems like a coordinated effort by corporations to conceal layoffs and the true state of the... read more
I have been with the company through many layoffs and this one seems to be the most secretive of all. There is no communication and no transparency on what is happening. It seems like there is a ninja team of folks cutting people quietly out of the... read more
LAMs, ISSRs laid off in Michigan market along with some SOMs and POMs.
My team in OP of about 15-20 just got notified our positions were being moved to Reston and we were all getting let go at the end of the month. Bon voyage.
POTUS: I was just called by the head people at Sprint, and they are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States... (Dec 26 2016) Source:... read more
KC Biz Journal has the story. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2018/03/09/breaking-sprint-to-cut-500-from-op-headquarters.html?ana=e_ae_set1&s=article_du&ed=2018-03-09&u=xsWdLHVRnYvAxn5ijNkxrg0013a061&t=1520629850&j=80421061
we keep hearing they are coming anyone have any specifics?
Is it over yet several long time employees ( over 20 years) have been laid off already in the production support area. Anyone know what the total will be. Specifically in Meg's arena?
Do people not know about this site? I would like to hear what other people and departments are hearing. Are people concerned or just used to "layoffs" thinking they'll be hired back in 3-6 months? I also am hearing up to 30% of people will be... read more
I heard my VP say today that Sprint may layoff up to 10% of their workforce - retail sales is safe. No one else is safe.
Heard Sprint let go 10 of the regional Vice Preidents it brought in 18 months ago. I guess the plan to have 18 separate regions isn't working. Today it was announced that there would only be 8 regions. Would like to have their severance packages.
Why would you cut experienced legacy employees to cut costs? It's completely counterproductive. I'd pay good money for a leadership that realizes that experience is a good thing. Experience brings in more money than it costs and it will certainly... read more
i really wish sprint would start promoting from the inside. we have so many good people who know this company inside-out with experience and expertise to go with it, and yet they are never the ones who make it up the chain. nope, what we get are... read more
Sprint upper management is completely devoid of understanding what all the people under them are actually doing. That's the only way I can explain the unrealistic expectations and goals they are setting on us. My work week has turned into a nightmare... read more
Not sure what we are looking at now the merger is off the table. While the merger would have brought major layoffs through consolidation, in the end I believe it would have helped us survive. Sprint has been lagging with modern analytical tools and... read more
Time has come. Sprints integrity issue has shown the loss of customer base. Their customer service has caused a wind storm that has drowned them in debt but being possibly being bought by a great company that has a vision for the future.
It's been a long time coming. Way back in the 90's when I would be assigned for a contract.."oh s##t, Sprint!" First two weeks would be sitting around reading manuals since i had no userid. It was like trying to run thru molassas. People really... read more
Rumor circling that within the next month Sprint will be laying off NRAE, in part or in mass.
Heard that the layoff is going to mostly consist of national account executives. Anyone else hear this?
Sad news again. Unfortunately, unofficial discussions underway with T-Mobile aren't so unofficial. NDA agreements have been signed on both sides. It appears T-Mobile wants to take the parts of Sprint it wants along with the customers. Everything and... read more
A lot of other companies have the ability to work from home (American Express, Apple, Verizon, ATT). Can out customer service reps work from home? Seems like a better option than a layoff...
Sprint Stock is way up are we talking about possible Merger soon? If yes, who will be laid off?
Has Sprint tried to cheat anyone else out of their 2015 STI?
