I worked for Hickory Tech for a short time 2006 -2007. I liked my bosses. My immediate boss was a straight arrow. The best piece of advice he gave me was "Grow Some Balls."
My coworkers were OK. I found a lot of the female coworkers stuck up. There were a couple of exceptions. The sales people were mostly pretty good. One piled on the perfume so much, her scent introduced her arrival and stuck around for minutes after she left. The sales gal who trained me in was a doll.
My division was bought out by a vulture capitalist and I was out of a job a couple of weeks later. The parent company left us out in the cold, so I think they suck the big one. From what I gathered, layoffs were very common throughout the years I would have stayed if the parent company had some balls.
