SMB Uimited

How many reps (retail, r2b, b2b) sell these plans at less than 4 lines. System will allow it. I know a lot of people on both side. It’s a great opportunity to close sales.

Your next successful job!

New hires

Just heard from the second level that they hired over 100 facility techs in NJ, mostly for fios installs up north. How do you think this will affect any possible eisp for 3rd or 4th quarter of 2018? I’d like to think the company would want to get the... read more

Wireless retail store discrimination suit

Can CWA and IBEW stop Rebadging?

For the post 2003 hires, Rebadging is not difficult to do, but for the older hires, can Verizon get away with rebadging Associates if the “new” company also has the same Unions? Hans won’t dance with Shelton and Lonnie the way previous leaders did... read more
