Thread regarding Altice USA (Cablevision) layoffs

Altice, drah, dex...just admit you bit off more than you can chew

customers leaving in droves cause of bad storm response and 1-2 hour wait times on hold and good luck if you can get a rep that understands you. Lines around the block to return equipment and cancel

The difference between in house and the contractor is that in house would cut a slit in the bottom of the drip loop like your supposed to so stuff like this doesn’t happen.

I had a customer tell me the contractor said the wires outside were wet and the service will come back on when the rain stops

You cant see that once it's all wired up, they don't need you or your bloated salary? It's curtains once they get this sh– network up and running. It will be sh– service run by sh– techs.

Hahahahaha... So they gut the company and higher contractors. Everything is business as usual and you're not worried about your job? Can you please send me whatever you're smoking? I'm absolutely terrified of what's next.

Dtv lost 886k subscribers last quarter.We gained the MOST subscribers EVER in the history of the company.Fair to say they need us now more than ever.Self install?pffft.Average cus cant even switch inputs after you've shown them 3 times.Subs for everything?Funny they dont climb poles,run drops or outlets,or apply themselves at all.EVERYTHING is a "tap issue".I for one am not real worried.

Seems there is a lotta former/current NPG,Suddenlink employees on this site.You could do your'e self a favor and learn how to work this whole situation to your'e advantage.Do the extra work on tcs,upgrades and sros(like we used too).Take pictures and bill for your'e work.Grounds,drops,noise,locates,OSP fixs etc.Like it or not,this is the way the new landscape has evolved.Look for that opening,and make them pay for adressing it.Do i agree with it,no.Absolutely not.Will i take the opportunity to look for any system issues and adress them?110% YES.They own the system,let them pay for it.Eventually someone somewhere else is going to be held accountable for it.In the meantime,keep your'e job,support your'e family and stay strong/headfast.It can only roll downhill for so long.Stay UP brothers and sisters.....

I need to chime in on this imma break it down sons, but its true statement, u is as good as you get paid in this industry if u aren't making money this must mean u are a LOUSY TECH, facts is facts any sup u approached and you complained on how u don't make much like other techs, they'd look u in the face and say well that tells me what type of tech u were, lol and u can turn around and give the ole spiel that I'm not a s— a– or whatever weak people throw around as an excuse, Cablevision employees were taken care of and yes there were and are six figure techs out there. So dont be quick to judge lil wee wee, audi 5000, and you can take shots back if it makes you feel tough, but trust you can't beat me, facts you don't want this smoke

Hey you forgot to say “deuces”! You can try to spin it like I was the one bringing the hate and being aggressive, all you want. Why are you on this post anyway acting like a b–ch and trying to make your coworkers feel like garbage because they don’t make “six figures” like you. You are obviously the greatest tech out in the field and you shouldn’t bother with us bottom feeders. I always love clowns that throw out how much they make. Take a moment, look in the mirror and think about how pathetic you look. And how about you drop a few periods in your sentences now and then. You can’t be taken seriously when you post incoherent bulllshit. And if you’re going to watch wack asss sh– like breakin’, you shouldn’t even be talking to me. I’m gonna guess this is what you take home, $30,000.00, However, six figures doesn’t include cents! Hahahaha you corny muthafucker.... Yo! Outie 5000!

@3odo+17cPY5w5 Sorry to break it to you yes I watched electric boogaloo in my own basement that I own with my six figure salary with my 80’s self while you was in diapers hater and a bully that is what you are but I do wish you well, you should try to bring positive information And calling people dumb and can’t read a meter is petty, Anybody that still works here I would take to battle anytime because they are the real troopers blessed day. I am signing off I suggest you too permanently, since you do not even work here anymore hate is not good for the soul.

I hate to say this but they are not asking or do they want anyone to come back. The plan is to cut more and more till you have a very few supervisors running outside contractors.
Sorry man, you're not going to come back

I love the guys that left and are so happy to be gone but just keep coming back to this site ! Why ? If you slam your finger in door do you wait for it to heal and come back to do it again . All you that left whether you wanted to or not but come to this site are the biggest bunch of Bitc&es ! Ya I’m sure your making 2$ less after spending 20 years on a job with no education! Right and if so good for you then you s—ed off someone to get that job just like you probably did when you were here . Good for all those that collected all you could $ wise if I could’ve I would’ve I ain’t hating on those people just don’t bash the guys that couldn’t . To me it was all gonna be short lived and you know what so may this place but I’m taking the gamble and so far ya it s—s but it’s still a job .

Post ID: @1hxs+17cPY5w5

“Deuces”. yup and that’s why you’ll keep slinging cable until they push you out. I personally start my new job in two weeks making $2 less than what I made after 20+years of cable. Oh and my severance is good until May and I get to collect until I start. I’m personally here to say there’s life after cable. Keep looking while you’re working. If you can get out, get out. If they offer another package, get out. You just keep coming here to vent and let me know how it works out.

Post ID: @1akg+17cPY5w5

It's not fraud to collect unemployment and severance. You absolutely have the right to collect both. In states it very clearly if you go directly to the unemployment website. You would be a fool to not collect unemployment on top of your severance. I'm still collecting severance and unemployment and I begin work at a new company in a week. I collected a sh– ton of money also from both and got an extra 600 on top of that from the government. It's amazing that you would be opposed to someone getting what the rightfully deserve. You just wish you were in that position, instead you work for a company that will eventually give you the boot without any severance. Have fun working for that garbage company.

you poor b–tards should have taken the voluntary. I'd rather go nuts looking for work while collecting my severance AND unemployment. That place is a sinking ship and all the guys chanting "go U" are hoping for better days. Glad I'm out.

Customers leaving cause of issues with service since January and this company send 3 replacement boxes during the year meanwhile signal levels are in the dump then sends a contractor and tells customers that they need new wiring in the house then finally lucky for the customer they get in the end of September a Cablevision trained employee and resolves the issue in 30 minutes by replacing a bad drop wire. Smh these new owners deserve to get license takin away
