Topics regarding layoffs at Verizon Wireless
Camp Creek, Lithonia, Lawrenceville, Marietta Layoffs are not over..this is happening in a few days
There are reps going home without a check each month because stores are over staffed, quotas are unattainable & Verizon is Greedy. They know this. A layoff, downsizing or hourly ONLY has to be in the works. It’s painful to go through each day &... read more
The reduction occured last week and impacted SMs from select stores, in addition to few store closures. That was the extent of it. I don't anticipate us seeing other layoffs until potentially next year. The May 17th and June 1st rumors were exactly... read more
did i miss something or did nothing actually happen?
Just curious if any districts have any "BIG WIGS" coming in tomorrow the 17th.
Guys, there’s no way that they are eliminating the SMB role, firing 1/3 of GMs, firing a ton of SM’s and converting half the stores to indirect. Due to business needs, our stores wouldn’t run for a couple weeks and Verizon would lose money. It makes... read more
If you want security in call center work, get to a BGCO center. That’ll entail moving to Maryland, Atlanta, or Salt Lake City, but they will be the last centers standing. Everything else is just quicksand.
I’m currently on vacation, say if downloadbesttorrentblog.ru does occur and my store is impacted. How is that normally handled? Do I get a call? Or do they wait until I’m back in store to tell me?
Do we have any more info on what will be hit the most? Are we looking at more stores closing or only at layoffs of staff within the stores? The rumors at work have been all over the place, from conversion to indirect to elimination of entire roles... read more
Bye-Bye RETAIL! Visible is Verizon’s way Out! Gizmodo.com Visible is a new startup for Verizon Wireless. I read the articles and basically it’s a company that won’t require representives’ help. All services can be done on the app they provide n they... read more
They closed Texas City, and fired another SM in ST07, If union cards just happened to show up in the rest of the ST07 stores, Youd get your majority signed before HR could make it out from the office downtown.
Anybody else here not able to sleep or relax before May 17? I know by now I should have learned not to stress so much about the possibility of our store closing out of the blue, but what can I say, I'm a worrier. I think the wait is worse than... read more
/ Anyone else see this!?
Just thought I'd bring this info here as well, since it's all over Verizon Communications forum. Not sure where people are getting their info, but from what I can gather, we are looking at another major round of cuts next week. I was hoping we were... read more
After yesterday's carnage are we looking at even more layoffs and closings at Verizon today and next week? I'm scared that yesterday was just a beginning and that in the next several days I am going to get to work and find the door locked like so... read more
1 sm from smaller stores, 2 sms from larger stores. closed an entire store and everyone location laid off. also DM was laid off yesterday. big screw for those "bonuses" too. shameful. anyone know of any media attention?? there should be.
Any word on stores closing Sunday’s? If so, which market?
F**K Verizon. 10 year SM, with a near perfect attendance record, and asked multiple times over the years to apply for _ GM position, but didn't because I was waiting for one with a commute I would be okay with, and well.... gtfo. At least I'm getting... read more
Of people asking you which exact store you work at or what exact position you held, before your store closed or you were laid off. Remember, management HATES this site with a passion because it tells the world a truth they want covered up, so if they... read more
Is commission factored in with severance or just the two weeks per year? I’m in NEM and was let go today. My 6 year anniversary was late July, figures, will probably just get 10 weeks pay instead of 12. My day off so I haven’t been in store yet... read more
And then, ask them if and when they plan to renew it. You will not like the answer.
2 SMs let go this morning, both were the 2 newest in the position. Looks like it’s not up to the dm to decide who to keep. We have several “problem managers” in our district.
My store closed today As i drive up to my store today for my shift, gates are down. We all found out today we are laid off and it’s being turned into an indirect. The lease coming up in June, indirect visiting out store and facilities talking about... read more
just got confirmation several SM's were let go in GLA area, Pacific Market. What other areas are being affected?
Is it true, they are all gone tomorrow, closing stores on Sunday, one manager, 2 key holders instead?
I have heard there are key holder mandatory trainings the next few weeks. I have been told this is due to an upcoming cut of solutions managers. Any word?
Stores are being closed and converted to indirect, call centers are closing and being converted to home bases agents. Departments will be outsourced like the IT departments.. it is simply a good business move for verizon. Why pay salary and benefits... read more
I am Hearing rumors of store merges in SEM. Does anyone know about this? I was told June. Was told Will let go most managers and some reps. Any idea? After I heard this my DM has been in my store more then ever and haven’t seen our director in... read more
2 stores closed down in California this week northridge and Lynwood... Anyone got anymore details?
Certainly not just Verizon Wireless! Also many Verizon Business employees, effective 5/9/18! Posted in an old thread, any more info on this?
So, we know that six or seven call centers are "relocating" to home based agents... for now at least. Any word on when the rest of the centers plan on doing this?
Heard rumor that wireless RIF's are coming again, some select retail, operations, and call centers... coming again around 5/17 and paid till end of June As all the others take this with grain of salt just what I have heard.
Now stores are telling us to process post paid account and convert to Pre paid account. Where is the code of conduct with this company. Oh my god
My concerns with Home Based Agents (HBAs) are multiple. First, it strips away any sort of “team building” or ability to interact with coworkers and leadership. This will make it almost impossible to move upward in the company because you’re no longer... read more
We can go HBA, relocate, or find something else. But we got a half day off so that's always a plus I guess -_-
