It's a sinking ship! Walmart contract was doomed from the start. Call volume has decreased throughout all areas and major accounts prior to Walmart. Who's fixing all the CPU's and other devices at previous accounts? CPU's don't repair themselves, so someone is doing it but who? Compucom has screwed previous money making accounts and now we are paying for it by our job loss. Ask any former Getronics techs, they were busy and productive until being merged into Compucom. Now, they too are wondering what did this company do to their previous accounts? Anyone in the field service for Compucom should actively start looking for new jobs as the outlook here is bad and only about to get worse. Another theory is techs that were once full time associates with benefits will be switched to 1099 contractors or just let go so they can bring in the recent kids out of tech school and pay them below wages currently in force. Folks, it's just a matter of time before it happens.... prepare now or be blindsided and standing in the unemployment line (that's if compucrap will allow you to collect) looking for work while trying to keep the roof over your head.

Does Compucom still have the Home Depot and Target accounts?
I became a Compucom employee when they acquired Getronics. Thought at the time it could not get worse..it did. Pay cuts and no more company car. Sounds like nothing has changed in the 5 years since I quit..no regrets..like is to short to give your life to company without any career advancement or adaqute compensation.
Who has the Wal Mart account now?. Heard Compucom was recently sold..true/false?
They are a real suck ass company. The last 4 months or so my region (VA/Lynchburg) has been running on a skeleton crew of 3 technicians. They just hired someone through a temp agency, who already has made clear he wants out. They expect to have technicians on call every second or third week and ready to drive hundreds of miles with little to no notice. The manager has no clue how to manage people, and there are many technicians under his direction looking to get out.
After they lost the Wal-Mart POS portion of the account, it was obvious things were just going to get worse. Knew the likelihood of being laid off was high, the loss of the non-POS portion of that count just confirmed not having a job past July.
