Useless Unlimited Plan

What the hell happened to the unlimited plans? They are slower than ever! Even without going over 22gb. Every other other word buffers when watching a video. It's pathetic!

So much for promotions

I'm so angry right now I don't know what to do with myself. I was laid off last week less than six months after I was promoted. My manager made such a big deal out of this promotion, just to turn around and stab me in the back only a few months down... read more

Heard rumor that wireless RIF's are coming again, some select retail, operations, and call centers... coming again around 5/17 and paid till end of June As all the others take this with grain of salt just what I have heard.

Call Center Closings?

So, we know that six or seven call centers are "relocating" to home based agents... for now at least. Any word on when the rest of the centers plan on doing this?

Has anyone EVER been paid off of salesforce? I have never seen anything good come of salesforce. I’ve actually seen salesforce leads come in and grab a different rep, and I’ve “converted” leads for reps in other stores but they’re not getting paid... read more

August Retail Head Count Redustions

So it look like August is when we will see head count reduction from the rumors. Supposedly the magic number of contracts expected is 92 per employee that may vary by store. With the traffic we have had lately that's not happening.

Finally somebody noticing

Not the kind of publicity we need right now, but very much true... Comcast, AT&T and Verizon pose a greater surveillance risk than Facebook – but their surveillance is much harder to avoid... read more

IT rumors???

I hear there is going to be a big shake up in IT tomorrow, all rumors of course. Rifs, outsourcing, etc. What is the latest?

The "I left and life is great!" trolls

They're out in full force today, and oddly, they all seem to have plenty of time during work hours to hang out on a layoff site, despite having a GREAT JOB and being in Utopia. Ever wonder why someone who's in that position would bother hanging out... read more

Start looking now

Do yourselves all a favor. Get out. I was laid off in December from 21 years in VZ IT and it was the best thing that could have happened.. EVER! I ended up with a job making more money, working for a team of people who are actually a TEAM and not a... read more
