Remember when John Legere told Congress the Sprint merger would not cut jobs but actually create more?
And Congress actually believed him?
According to reports, T-Mobile has started laying off several of its support centers.
As reported by The Mobile Report (link below) T-Mo has closed down its T-Force support centers. The staff from these centers were told to relocate or look for a new job. T-Force is the name for T-Mobile’s support teams available on Twitter and Facebook.
This comes just after its agreement terms with Sprint expired. There were a total of 17 T-Force support centers throughout the country. Now, it’s down to 5.
Once again, T-Mo didn’t give affected employees a notice period about their current situation. In fact, some employees (shared on Reddit) that they only discovered they were laid off when they tried to login to work this morning. Others saw the Reddit post and were shortly contacted by their superiors to tell them the bad news.
Some employees are being given the option to relocate to a T-Mobile call center and get a one-time lump sum that will cover relocation costs. The other option is to accept the layoff and receive a severance, which will cover two months of PTO. Paychecks will be covered until August 4th.
Employees were given until Monday, June 12th, to decide whether they will relocate or not. T-Mobile also says that these employees will continue to be paid until next week, even though they don’t have to work anymore.
This could impact up to 1000+ employees.
