Sprint to Cut 800 Customer Service Jobs Nationwide

Half of the cuts are coming out of Texas.

 

I suppose it makes sense given the additional headcount they got from Clearwire (it was previously disclosed that some consolidation would occur).

 

Regardless, it's never any fun and I hope anyone that is effected by this on S4GRU can transition to another roll at Sprint or another position quickly.

Major bummer.  :(

Sadly, with Sprint continuing to bleed subs we may have more of this blood-letting

before the NEW Sprint has a chance to strut it's stuff; when you get behind the curve in

technology it's very,very hard to keep market share; the landscape is littered with corpses:

CDC, DEC Vax,Univac,the inital Apple (prior to iPod/iPhone), SGI,Sun Micro...these are just

a few I can remember...Sprint can do what Apple did but someone with deep pockets has

to have a vision that extends beyond a year or two

Dang that sucks and I feel we will continue to hear bad news until next year.

 

Sometimes you need to breakdown to have all the pieces you need to build yourself again.

 

Things will get better for sprint in the long term. Ready for triband!!!

Did they have to make the number 800?  Couldn't they do 799 or 801?  Everytime I see this headline today I think it has something to do with the SMR band...

 

/Seriously though sucks for the employees and also sucks for the consumer -- you do not improve your customer service by eliminating a part of the front line.

Is this number on top of the layoffs from the US Cellular purchase? There were over 600 laid off in Chicago alone.

Sprint didn't buy usc employees or stores so Sprint didnt lay off this people technically.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
