Laid off after 17 years. No honest explanation was given as to why. Loved working for EarthLink but the company went downhill fast after the Windstream acquisition. Very sad to see.
Laid off due to force reduction after 3 1/2 years. Have put in ten applications and all were urned back no longer in consideration- mayby they have some sort of bias in the company as all the others laid off and I know the current systems and need no training. Weird
They had a Reduction in Force that management performs every 6. Months. So if you don't know how to do their way of telecommunications, they will not train you. They will let you go
My department was let go as we were told our department was being eliminated. Later found that they created a team elsewhere to replace us.
Laid off twice, the last in July 2017, third week of the month, a Thursday. Boss wouldn't let me off that day with my husband recovering after surgery. Heard it was a spreadsheet from HR. The position was so stressful, the anxiety was terrible! They escorted you out without you getting a box so they mailed your personal items yet kept the money I left in my desk. I couldn't believe they kept my money after laying me off.
Lied to about the work schedule, lied to about the condition of the outside plant, lied to about the condition of the work conditions, and no safety was in place for anything on the job, very dangerous and I miss managed place to work
Overworked and under appreciated until I made it clear that I was leaving the Windstream sweatshop for a better opportunity
Laid off due to lack of work/retired
