Sprint to potentially announce layoffs in January?
posted by PhoneArena Team / Dec 09, 2008, 1:50 AM
“With customer care in good shape, more flexible covenants in place and a planned layoff in January, CEO Dan Hesse has the financial flexibility and the organizational structure to make whatever moves he wants in order to stimulate growth," Piecyk said. Though he believes that price plan reductions are still an option, Sprint was quick to dismiss the idea, with company spokesman James Fisher saying that price cuts are not likely at this point: "He [Bob Brust] strongly believes that we use every other tool to attract customers. It’s not to say we would never consider it, but not something that’s being actively discussed right now.”
Another piece of negative news for Sprint, but considering the carrier's staggering loss of one million customers in the last quarter alone, drastic changes from all aspects of the business seem to be the only available option to keep the company viable.

#3 & #7 need to get off your mom's couch and get a job and maybe a family, then you'd understand that people losing their jobs isn't very funny. But I'm sure mommy will take care of you for the rest of your sorry pathetic little lives.

Shouldn't you guys be in school? Grow up people. Job losses are bad for the economy and affects us all. We are all int the same boat. Do you think that if this recession turns into another big depression, VZW will not cut jobs?

i work for sprint. you have no idea what its like to work for a company that everyone at this point thinks is going under. we are fighting everyday to keep customers and keep our jobs and no body is looking at the facts. Right now Sprint is cheaper for data and text plans for family and individual plans. We may not have THE best phones, but sprint provides. There are going to be a lot of upset people IN janurary. We have the same coverage as Verizon (its the same network and we all share towers with each other) ATT and Tmobile have their good points and bad points in being GSM....bottom line is no body is perfect...Sprint just made bad choices and now they are trying to clean up the mess .....maybe the wrong way...but they are trying...
