Christiansburg site was shut down except for back office and survey response. They will be moved to a smaller building. Corporate rolled up in hummers March 13th and shut it down in a day after telling us they were just going to let us know where we were moving to. We originally had 600 employees now we have dwindled down to very few as they sold the building with everything inside it. We were offered work at home ( if you had good attendance, no consults or performance issues) with 60 days of pay and benefits for a severance package if you chose to leave. If we weren’t eligible then we were walked out the next day or called and told to come get our box at security.
People in the Tulsa site who were amazing and who have been there for years are being let go. I think it's less of a performance issue and more that they think they are paying them too much. It's sad. The site is being cleaned.
Satellite TV may be on the decline, but these agents are people who were still trying to support themselves. There's no need to be rude about it when it's not so much of a surprise as it is simply bad business to fire people without notice. Let's all hope you're so lucky to expect to get laid off from your own job. Maybe then you'll learn something called empathy. The was NO notice given to many of these sites. People came into work Thursday and were promptly let go. So layoffs in general are not surprising, but many of these agents didn't even know there jobs were in danger.
I agree keeps jobs in usa
Why is this surprising when satellite TV is dying?
they let go of a ton in Texas as well El Paso and Harlingen....God Bless you guys we know we are hard workers
I have seen some of my fellow coaches go and that was sad.
To those that work in our Tulsa CXO, sorry. I hope you find something new ASAP.
They'd do better closing all the overseas centers who cause escalations and loss of customers and leave these centers alone.
