Thread regarding CenturyLink layoffs

Little support

I got laid off last year. I didn’t expect this because I thought I was doing really well and that my workplace was pretty safe. Since I was not prepared, it was a big shock. I thought it was the end of the world because I didn’t even have any savings.
In a record time I renewed all my contacts, polished resume and I managed to find a job with higher pay, greater benefits, management that still recognizes hard work.
I want to say: do not ever repeat my mistake of not being prepared no matter how much you think you're safe. Also, if you are cut, you will most likely realize that you would not otherwise leave on your own and give yourself a second chance to finally get some relief.

I took the VSPP this time. 4 layoffs in 3 years was enough for me. Now that I’m out I wish I would have left earlier. Very Happy!

It sucks you didn’t take the vsp but you got out at a good time. For any of you who read this and thinks their job is safe, especially those with 6yrs or less, ask yourself how many times have you been on that layoff list? Take that as a hint, I did. There was life before century link and there is life after centurylink.
