Thread regarding CenturyLink layoffs

Burned my bridges on purpose

I didn’t bother to give notice. My new job asked how soon I could start. I said two weeks. But I quit my position as soon as I could. I know a lot of people will think I’m an id--t. I’ve been looking to get out for over a year and when given the opportunity I took it. I could have worked out a notice, but I’m taking those two weeks to unwind from the stress of this company. I don’t have anything bad to say, but I don’t have anything good either. Good luck to those who are looking to get out.

You should have taken a week of sick time before you quit...

When you built the company from the ground up, when pulled in and spliced the fiber that is now the legacy Qwest national Network, When you worked with Nellis AFB, Berkley, Kirkland AFB, Las Alamos, Nasa, to keep their communications running, splicing fiber in the middle of the night, testing replacing circuits at 3AM , work a 36 hr shift ,When you Quailifed the Dark fiber so that the 35 Billion figure they held over your head must be completed or the merger won't go through and they give you 1o mins a cardboard box and a ride home. That's the loyalty of the Corporation oh yeah and 26k severance if you sign here. agree to go quietly.
LevelLink does not deserve a single notice

Sounds like you worked in the shady desk-based sales group in Minneapolis. It’s a corrupt team.

Atta boy! They wouldn't have given you any notice, just a phone call to Uber, 10 mins and a cardboard box. They may try to sc--w you on last pay and PTO payout though, I have seen that happen.

Brilliant move! Giving a 2 Week notice is a courtesy. You honestly think that place has any class or concern in regards to courtesy?! Please! You made the right move for sure!

I woudn't worry about it-especially if the state you live in has "at will" employment laws. They can't say anything bad for no notice and if they did-sue them. Knew several people in my area that just walked off after their shift was over.
