Thread regarding USAA layoffs

People are really asking for ev charging stations?

Seriously, charge your car at home and if your car cant make it to work and home, get a better car that can. Its not your employers priority to pay for your cars power….

And then while you wait for gas/electricity, you can pre order your three course breakfast to be delivered when you get to the parking garage, that way, after your 50 mile/hour commute, you can finally begin to start your day of work with a good meal!

I think EV charging stations would be great. They could place them next to the gas station they should build on site.

Great idea. EV charging stations might encourage more people to get electric cars which will add more weight for the old parking garages to support.

Just a jagoff troll getting bored with RTO trolling, so they switched to another "trigger". Lame.

They already have charging stations. Federal government, Texas and San Antonio is providing massive tax incentives to install.

It’s not that serious.

I'm glad this isn't reddit so OP can't delete their post.

OP sounds like the kind of person who complained as a kid that they didn't get a gift on someone else's birthday and never grew out of it.

Aside from the fact that this doesn't affect OP in any way, EV charging is dirt cheap. Let's look at an example and be generous in our estimations here.

USAA adds 24 Tesla-branded fast chargers at $425 a piece. USAA has electricians on staff, so let's say no labor cost but $200 per charger for materials. That's $15,000 to get the chargers in place on the higher end. In reality there are cheaper options and USAA would likely choose those as they have universal adapters.

Using my own EV experience as a baseline, it increased my electricity bill by about $20 per month to charge my car every day. Let's double that and say each charger would cost USAA $40 per month in electricity and an average of $50 per month in maintenance (replacing parts, occasional replacement of chargers, that sort of thing). So, again, on the high end, let's say it costs USAA $90 for each charger per month. That's $2,160 per month for two dozen chargers.

$15,000 in upfront installation costs.
$2,160 in monthly electricity/maintenance costs.

That's $40,920 in the first year and $25,920 in subsequent years.

That's far less than the cost of one entry level employee.

That's less than USAA spends on swag for interns.

That's less than the cost of annual food waste.

That's less than the cost of one day of Wayne's salary.

Just say you have a vendetta against EVs because you got spooked by them by Fox News or whatever source of FUD you watch. It's honestly quite sad how bad and immature of a take this is.

When in reality a fraction of the cost of adding a couple EV stations could be mitigated by eliminating the HUGE bonuses eceutive maangement gave themselves after making the decisions that lead to the first company loss in over 100 years. The bonus perk in turn would actually benefit the company since it would boost morale and in turn increase productivity, executive bonuses ADD ZERO VALUE.

Think the orig poster feels that since usaa had its first loss last year and there are tons of layoffs, that why would you feel the need to add another expensive ‘perk’?

I swear, people just can't stand when employees get new perks that don't directly benefit them.

I guarantee you that you wouldn't be complaining if USAA decided to offer a free gas station to employees.

I don't even have an EV, but so what if USAA added more EV stations?

The fact you took the time to post this and sh-t on the idea of USAA adding more EV charging stations for no other reason than "It's not your employer's priority" is just silly.

It's not your employer's job to provide gyms, but you're not complaining about that.

It's not your employer's job to provide Starbucks onsite, but you aren't complaining about that.

It's not your employer's job to provide an onsite clinic or pharmacy, but you aren't complaining about that.

If USAA wants to add a couple dozen EV chargers, so what? Are you that insecure that you can't stand someone getting something that doesn't benefit you?

Many of us don't have kids but aren't complaining about people getting paternity/maternity leave.

Many of us aren't going to school but aren't complaining about the tuition assistance.

Many of us don't use the nap pods but aren't complaining that people use them sometimes.

Very few of the employee perks that USAA provides are "an employer's job." But they help to attract and retain talent. And USAA needs that now more than ever.
