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.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
