I kept waiting for a notification that my store is closing and it never came. And it makes no sense. I know we are one of the most underperforming stores in the state. I was certain when the closing started we'd get the call. The fact that it's done... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Verizon Wireless
Today I told my boss that I was so frustrated I referred to him with profanity. They will probably run to Hr and fire me. Got my bachelor's and mba at verizon and still could not get promoted.
With swine employees in the leadership committee like Michael Ciavirella in New Jersey whom has ruined lives in retail using pig like tactics, you can tell the company is reaching a huge decline. He has since been rescued by corporate and moved to... — read more
Anyone else calling off over these last few days we remain open?
Stores are a thing of the past anyhow. Some were spared now but they won't be in the future. If you don't start looking for a new job right now (since we all know it's much easier to find a new job when you already have one) you might be in for a... — read more
As of today my store is still open but one of the managers was cut. I have the weirdest feeling we aren't in the clear yet even though all of us reps are still here (I am a rep) but seeing whats been going on... I feel like its the beginning of... — read more
I know some companies give 3 weeks or even a month per year, but others also offer a week or no severance at all in some cases. Sitting somewhere in the middle doesn't seem too bad. Mind you, my store is still standing. If I'm affected I might end... — read more
Hanzi-scheme The act of incompetently managing a company to benefit few in leadership positions. Typically the instigators of such schemes add little value as they are not innovative by nature and only serve as a mouth piece to appease... — read more
You know what hurts? That they consciously reduced our pay...only to offer us a lot less in severance because it’s based of your last annual income which just happened to be the year of a global pandemic, when the company has been receiving... — read more
I hear people saying layoffs will continue next week but I thought we were done for now. How worried should I be?
Verizon randomly announced its consolidating their company by reducing amount of store managers, district managers, etc. They’ve already changed commission structure which deters employees from striving to perform. They are making drastic changes... — read more
For those that got a package, what are the details?
So I'm really sick of Verizon. Is it possible to quit and claim unemployment?
I definitely want to leave this company but not empty handed. Should I try to negotiate my now defunct 40 hour job for a severance package ?
Yesterday’s announcements didn’t mention anything about getting remaining retail stores to the new part/full time structure. We still have thousands of stores filled with grandfathered in 40 hour a week jobs. Most stores don’t even have part time... — read more
Verizon made billions, we could have been the bastion of customer service. We could have poured money into apprenticing people across roles in the company. Now all we have is a corporate hatchet hacking away the most willing. The willing are what... — read more
Great job Verizon!!! A good round of applause for the upper exec level folks, useless, lazy & completely lost people!!! How many pats on the back did u guys get from ur seniors? How much did the shareholders cheer u? Did that internal satisfaction... — read more

So got a new DM coming from indirect. Sounds like he is over 45 indirects and 5 directs in our part of territory... when you look at those numbers... definitely wasn't direct absorbing indirect, quite the opposite.. still employed by VZW but where... — read more
Direct location only told we will be one Verizon. Does this mean we are still employed by Verizon?
Anyone knows how long they let us keep our benefits before we’re cut off when we’re taking a severance package? Like the 50% off our mobile service? & our healthcare?
My store closed today. (Houston) (Last day working is the 30th & the 1st of Feb it’ll be open as Indirect. A few GMs & DMs have been laid off. I devoted a few years of my life to this company but I’m glad I started preparing early for this. Business... — read more
All the "lies" post and "fake" and "troll" post should wake up and sh– up. Last week items were posted here about what was coming this week. This morning we knew it was coming, posting in real time, yet nasty people posting bull c-ap making harder... — read more
This one team call, restructuring? What is to come? Hmm.
I know that my GM is getting let go but I’m trying to figure out how they are picking who has to leave? Do we know if it’s based on pay? Or if it’s based on anything at all?
Our store just got told today that our store will be shutting it’s doors for good on January 31st. We were given options for severance or applying within the company. So basically they want everyone to be either do telesales and work from home or do... — read more
It is now happening now! It’s like 50pct DMs Retail/Indirect, 50pct GMs so far, and whopping 75pct Acct Managers. This is real! Good luck to everyone! Don’t listen to the Trolls that keep saying nothing is happening. That is sad when people are... — read more
Location, performance, something else? Is there a way to know if we're next?
https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/14/business/verizon-jobs-ceo-hans-vestberg/index.html Got all the awards. Now we see all those layoffs.
They just closed the store in Liberty City. Also the one on sistrunk too.
Today there are calls with stores that are closing. Handful of stores in each district have been notified already. 2 weeks severance. Relo for anyone moving over a certain distance. Payout of year 1 of stock together. This is not like the last summer... — read more

Multiple store closures in Chicago and surrounding suburbs!
Here I am. At work. East Texas. Absolutely normal day. You guys need to get a life.
I feel like all these posts about stores closing are from one person. Like don't you have better things to do then keep posting the same things about stores closing today?
On payroll through February 19th. Severance is 2 weeks pay for years worked. Time to turn the page.
Will something happen today? Who knows... But if you stand back and think the writing is on the wall.. Clearly Verizon is full of brainwashed employees that still think they are vauled. Just look back at the past fees years. Anyone with... — read more
If you are in retail and aren't a manager you have nothing to worry about. Worst case you will have transfer and take a 32 hour position. Their are 100s of headcount available nation wide
A lot of changes coming down the pipeline tomorrow... Staff will be notified of store closures. Several options including a small separation package will be offered. Many indirect locations are already ready to staff your store.
Lots of buzz for retail and business channels tomorrow (1/21) what’s up??
