Phone notifications?

I was just wondering, after reading several posts on this board, is it true that Windstream really lays off people through a phone call? They don't really bother to even tell people in their face what's going on? If this is true, it seems utterly... read more

I am the wife of a dedicated employee of 34 years who lost his job 3 days ago. We have been married for 41 years, and it broke my heart to see him so crushed and let down. His pride and feelings were deeply hurt. He feels that he was never... read more

So glad I left when I did

After working there just shy of 10 years & in multiple departments, I grew more & more fed up with WS. There would be layoffs of great employees & then they'd practically drain those that were left by piling on the work (with no training btw). I... read more

What was criteria?

I was just wondering if anybody knows what kind of criteria was used for these layoffs? I'm pretty sure it was not meritocracy, since we've lost one of our best employees while somebody who is barely doing anything day in, day out is still here. Was... read more

Metrics drive everything at Windstream

Nowadays literally EVERYTHING has to be quantified in metrics. That's all they care about. Even if you did say an absolutely mission critical project that didn't show up on some metric spreadsheet somewhere it doesn't count and no one cares. All that... read more

Rick Hausman

Listening to Ricks Hausmans call this morning makes me sick. He was asked a question about cutting director and VP bonuses instead of layoffs and of course Rick dodged the question and talked around it. There all crooks and deserve to be locked up.

Stop the bleeding

The company has to be hemorrhaging somewhere, to have the need to let so many people go so frequently. With the new tax laws in place now, they should be seeing enough savings they shouldn't have to do this. I heard on the news today that Apple has... read more

Bright side

Look at the bright side, colleagues. The money saved through today’s human tragedy will fund our world class insurance benefits and annual 0% raises. Heck, you might even get a cookie for all the extra work you’ll do cleaning up this mess. (tip:... read more

Such a Shame

What a sad day. It’s a bloody shame Windstream leaders don’t get it - a successful company always values their employees as their most important asset. Treat your employees right and they will take great care of your customers. Instead they are... read more

Good things ahead

For those who lost your jobs today, I’m sorry. I was also part of a RIF ( not this one) along with my entire department. When it happened I was more angry than sad. My manager was an inept ninny who could not have handled the process worse if she... read more
