Thread regarding CenturyLink layoffs

Still no VSPP on Horizon

No VSPP for the first time in the last 7 quarters. The writings on the wall they kept just enough of us to go around and repair all the garbage work done by their illustious contracting crew. As of this writing there are MULTIPLE openings for CTL areas....I&R posted jobs...trouble is CTL not hiring its W.C. doing all the hiring. for Unit work in our areas.

There are like 3 posted jobs as described at our HR Hiring site. Tech are being told that the contractors are here to stay. Like it or lump it. they are your equals ,they can bulk load jobs and horde tickets and futures while we are doled out work 1-2 tix at a time. They are not held to our standards, and are being used to simply "Close tickets"

As many as possible to try and catch up on the load which has been decimated by the failed software that dispatches us. all they have to do basically is get the battery from a to b. If it does not work then we have to go fix it . they kept just enough company techs to help them through the hump and the ridiculous hen pecking of BUZZ, call.upload tests, out of the yard no overtime unless you call to approve it at 2 pm and a host of other impingement's are designed to push the last of the Old Timers out the door leaving even fewer younger company men to be used...

Used? Yep used as scapegoats to show up in company vehicle and uniform to smile and correct all the shoddy work by the "beloved contractors who are here to stay. they spent as much as they can afford buying out most of the good techs, and now they will slowly squeeze the rest of us out one way or another and in all probability it wont be via VSPP that's how i see it have a great day and remember BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

when maxx came along we were told that the managers were out of the equation? they had no control over the system as it had to learn as it went and IT would adjust and dictate load and due dates. Well now that appears to have been exposed as a flat out LIE ,, You know why max is so bad and does not work as intended? Because management is sticking their fingers in the pie at will. they are changing due dates putting them out reeling them in , allowing contractors to bulk load and pull futures at will.
Basically what we have here is strictly a matrix or numbers game, they use contractors as the "runners" or "ticket closer's" to boost their numbers.

While they use us as Mops to go in behind them and clean the mess. The better your manager is at manipulation the better "They" look on paper and any questions about anything are passed along as it being the techs whom are at fault all the while you need to pay attention to simplistic details that keep their numbers black while its making YOUR numbers red

Virtually everything you were told about max and clik from managers has been lies!! When you went to school to learn max you were told one thing ....And then the pie tasters began sticking fingers into the pie.....It isn't about providing good service or service at all for that matter it is all about the numbers the shareholders and upper management making goals and trying to pocket as much as they can
