Store manager at the location was racist and very nitpicking. He didn’t care about the employees. If you can’t produce great numbers you’re worthless to this company!

I was layed off after 33 years of loyal service to ATT...I am young and vibrant 62 year old woman who works circles around the milinials but, I finally worked my way up to six figures on paper for one year and they layed me off. 2019 I would have been able to make six figures. I’m now dropped back down on the bottom at 62 years old. As for the management horror story relating to training, it’s true...they are not skilled or qualified to develop a team. They would train one person and leaned strictly on that person. I would okay that method had the knowledge been brought back to the team but, it wasn’t! So, lots of resentment and disgruntled employees.

The victim of downsizing after one of many acquisitions. I was able to linger around for a couple years, but eventually was let go. No, there is was not assistance or offers to any other position in the company. AT&T is very "fend for yourself" with no one helping. Managers are out to protect themselves and do not look out for the best interests of their teams.

I was notified, my position was eliminated. The day I left, another manager that possessed a different job title was sitting in my chair doing my job. AT&T leadership lies, they are immoral and unethical. The day after announcing the 85 billion dollar accusation of Time Warner, AT&T announced another Lay Off/Surplus condition and will remove more employees from their jobs.

My whole department was laid off, and replaced with robots. This billion dollar company wanted to save money that was spent on life insurance, health insurance, and salaries of employees, and instead created software bots to do our jobs. Oh, and the company spent 600,000 to pay Trump's lawyer to help a merger go through with time warner, but that money could have sustained our department for years. Capitalism at its finest.

This company looks great on the outside, but once inside, it becomes a mild dictatorship. the managers I've seen lie, sneak around behind your back, degrade you and expect you to be 100% perfect while they themselves are unprofessional and make mistakes constantly. They have no clue what the tech jobs are, but try to BS their way through it. Why this company supports and retains such poor managers just blows my mind. I did, however, enjoy my work there.

I retired after 32 years of service due to needing to be available for family members and the fact the company was downsizing in several positions I qualified for.
