I know Wilmington and Murfreesboro call centers take core calls. Are there any other centers that have core customer service?

My brother is on my Verizon employee plan and ordered the new iPhone from Apple since I told him we couldn’t order from Verizon yet. If he activates this phone what will happen? Loss of discount? Termination?

Looks like the "Bobs" recently had chats with leadership from a few groups. Not exactly sure which ones, but I noticed that somebody in Network Assurance signed them into a building a few weeks ago. Get your affairs in order...just in case.

More call centers will be closing. Heard from a very reliable source.
I’ve been mulling over applying for an SM position. I’ve been with the company a long time, as an SS, and frankly, I don’t believe in whatever direction 2.0 is taking us. I believe in supporting others though, and I genuinely care about developing... — read more
I'm extremely torn right now. I was just offered a job outside of VZW doing similar work starting at $5,000 less per year. The pay cut isn't too extreme and the benefits package is similar. The pros for accepting this offer are job security (no... — read more
I believe I can see the future 'Cause I repeat the same routine I think I used to have a purpose But then again, that might have been a dream I think I used to have a voice Now I never make a sound I just do what I've been told I really don't... — read more

What concrete layoff info have you heard?
It's almost that time of year again! Have heard lots of rumors call centers closing, stores etc... Any truth to the rumors? Which centers are closing?
Huh, I wonder whose pocket that will come out of. We need a union.
An idea of "Smart Cities" works when an economy is booming. The problem is that the economy isn't booming, contrary to popular belief. Take a look at the real estate market. When you see interest rates are lowered, but you also have a major decline... — read more
This is the same story I have watched as an employee for 15 years at GTE and Verizon from the inside and 5 years from the outside. From the landline side, they pushed good people out because of philosophical differences and compensation and kept the... — read more
Call it what it is. The ever-increasing targets and lower payouts. My boss tells me the other day, “We have to work on being more positive about things we can’t change. Sure, but will positivity pays my rent, my car insurance, and phone bill? Will... — read more

Good luck filling the “as it is unreachable” buckets with these payouts being dropped to $60 & $180 respectively...
Our stores are dreadfully slow. People need to make money. Bad enough I have been a top rep and my commission is down 30% from last year.
It was announced in a town hall meeting that my call center is getting digital posters and other tech for team connect sessions and someone asked how much this costs. The answer was 400k!! Not sure if that’s per center or the cost for all the... — read more
