Competent people are now unfortunately a minority in this company. People who once couldn’t get a job here because they don’t have any relevant skills are now more respected than people who work hard and still somehow keep this company alive. The consequences of placing mediocrity in positions that exceed their abilities are already visible. I just wonder what the consequences will look like in the future?

I have learned to stop fighting the incompetence of this company. For years I tried to figure out "why" a certain fubar situation was happening. Now, I just worry about the digits on my paycheck. It is so sad but it's true, and I bet there are quite a few others that look at this job the same way. Why fight an uphill battle every single day when I can just put in my hours and get my check? Anyone whining on this forum about how they are such a hero and no one else does anything is obviously a new hire. Anyone that has put in any amount of time with this company has been worn the he-l down and is probably hoping this place will finally just collapse and put us out of our misery. It's all about the digits on the paycheck at this point.
Agree 100%. If you wanted to get a higher paying job in the company, you would have to a pass a test. Basic ac/dc theory for outside plant and Advance ac/dc theory Electronics for Central office. Now no test, just a interview to get a job in craft.
Allen NOC gone through more managers since SPINCO than people change underwear.
The manager had no idea what he was doing. They led him around by the nose because he didn't know any better! But yes you're right 3 bad hires. Sorry!
"I used to work in Texas and 2 hires are to blame for the downfall there."
1 Splicer + 1 CZT2 + 1 id--t manager who didn't know how to do his job or think for himself... wouldn't that be 3 hires responsible?
BTW, a manager that's willing to listen to ANYTHING craft has to say is a very rare thing in this company. Usually they just puff out their chest and try to act like the smartest guy in the room (between all their super-effective conference calls, of course).
I used to work in Texas and 2 hires are to blame for the downfall there. One cable splicer and one czt 2 single handedly ruined this work location. Frontier had a mediocre manager who listened to everything they said. To bad not even the managers firing could stop the damage.
