Justin, Andy.

Yes I did just start at AT&T a little over a year ago. Right after I got hired, they put in a hiring freeze. They downsized 2 departments and laid off 22 managers in my department. We have steady work but it is slowing. AT&T is wanting to go 100% wireless. They cant until the FCC and the government allows them to either abandon the copper network or allows another company to take over their mandated network build.

I am moving to CenturyLink. I will be doing almost what I did with AT&T but my state doesn't have tv service through them.

I am going from $17.70 with 48 out of 72 months of credited service to $24.10 and 36 out of 48 months credited service. So I will hit cap 1 year sooner, a bigger cap in pay, and instead of OT after 40 hours of work, it will be OT after 40 a week and 8 per day.

They are short 3 people and allowed to hire 1. Since the tech I worked on at AT&T is just now being introduced to the IL market, they are wanting some of my expertise in helping to install and repair those services.

I'd check the box for email notifications, get one, or two, then back to no notifications. Just clicking new posts has served me well enough for most of my time here.

Merry Christmas to all the other first genners out there. Let's not forget the real reason we celebrate, which is the birth of our Lord and Savior.
