First of all, we are understaffed as it is. Second of all, we can't seem to attract anybody worth their salt so cutting more folks would leave us in a precarious position. Third of all, we are already so underpaid for the amount of work we're doing, there's no logic in getting rid of any of us to save costs. We are a cost-saving mechanism as it is. So I wouldn't worry about layoffs too much right now.

They plan on screwing everyone on severance - especially the legacy Metro and Sprint folks. There are already plans to change the severance package and if you are a tenured Metro or Sprint person, your severance will be based on when T-Mob acquired those companies. They are just waiting for Covid to die down before they implement this. They also won't be bridging your time if you are a legacy Metro or Sprint and decide to "come back" to T-Mob. This company is based on lies. Get out before it's too late!
Why the big push for return to work? So they won't have to layoff while remote, have negative optics during Covid?
Many middle mgmt positions, field mgmt positions will still be eliminated. It just didn't happen this year. Won't be this fall or winter either.
But layoff talks will ramp up late winter and spring. Chances are good.
The help you speak of they can't attract mainly applies to lower paying retail jobs.
They're not going to lay anyone off. They're going to make it such a pain to work there that staff quits without backfill. You don't have to pay severance...
I feel bad for anyone that works there. There are so many other opportunities out there. Just have to take a leap. A lot of companies have people at the top in their positions who don’t belong. It’s a shame, they are running out of time to fudge the numbers. Reality will hit soon. It’s kind of happening now.
If you only knew the amount of people who are hoping to get let go you'd be blown away
