Found an article that speculates that close to 1,000 more will be on the chopping block at Windstream. It refers to "sources" for the information without naming them, so I'm really not sure what to think... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Windstream Corp.
After working there just shy of 10 years & in multiple departments, I grew more & more fed up with WS. There would be layoffs of great employees & then they'd practically drain those that were left by piling on the work (with no training btw). I... read more
I think templates69.ru hit all non union employees not heard any of the union areas being hit, unless someone else knows otherwise I think the only ones safe for time being is cst n network techs until they hire our replacements at a cheaper wage
I was just wondering if anybody knows what kind of criteria was used for these layoffs? I'm pretty sure it was not meritocracy, since we've lost one of our best employees while somebody who is barely doing anything day in, day out is still here. Was... read more
I got told today 14 more days. Glad I was getting ready to retire anyway. Been there almost 17 years
Nowadays literally EVERYTHING has to be quantified in metrics. That's all they care about. Even if you did say an absolutely mission critical project that didn't show up on some metric spreadsheet somewhere it doesn't count and no one cares. All that... read more
Listening to Ricks Hausmans call this morning makes me sick. He was asked a question about cutting director and VP bonuses instead of layoffs and of course Rick dodged the question and talked around it. There all crooks and deserve to be locked up.
About 150 were walked out and a total of 400 were laid off. About 600 more to go in the coming weeks. it is not over. From a viable source from high up in the company on a basis of anonymity. Total savings from all rounds, including 2017, is about... read more
The company has to be hemorrhaging somewhere, to have the need to let so many people go so frequently. With the new tax laws in place now, they should be seeing enough savings they shouldn't have to do this. I heard on the news today that Apple has... read more
Look at the bright side, colleagues. The money saved through today’s human tragedy will fund our world class insurance benefits and annual 0% raises. Heck, you might even get a cookie for all the extra work you’ll do cleaning up this mess. (tip:... read more
What a sad day. It’s a bloody shame Windstream leaders don’t get it - a successful company always values their employees as their most important asset. Treat your employees right and they will take great care of your customers. Instead they are... read more
For those who lost your jobs today, I’m sorry. I was also part of a RIF ( not this one) along with my entire department. When it happened I was more angry than sad. My manager was an inept ninny who could not have handled the process worse if she... read more
Is it possible? I'd hate to see such a high of a number... Sources have told Arkansas Business that the total number of layoffs is in the hundreds, possibly nearing 1,000 over the coming weeks, but spokesman David Avery said the company would not... read more
It has been a bad day - may dear friends gone. I wish you all the best and God bless all of you!
I'm sorry to everyone that has been laid off. Your life is going to get better! Leaving Windstream was the best thing that happened to my husband. The day he was hired elsewhere he changed so much. Windstream was like a big black cloud that polluted... read more
It's been a crazy day here, but things are starting to wind down. It feels like the worst is over, at least for now. Anybody knows if this is it? Has everybody who was supposed to be notified been notified? Or am I starting to relax a little too... read more
Just laid 500 people off today, this is so sad
Can someone please post the details of the severance package? Is it two weeks pay for each year of service or something else? What's the max you can get? And can you get it as a lump-sum?
I know in situations like this, people usually wonder about severances (I know I do). Here is the link to the latest Windstream Severance Plan in PDF form for those wondering what is being awarded. My only question is, is Windstream honoring this... read more
I was the guy always volunteering for off hour jobs that had no coverage and no else wanted. Always fixing people’s basic mistakes that they kept making over and over and not learning from. Available on chat and email even if I was off. Spearheading... read more
We've lost three people in our department today, all of them are over 50. Considering that all of them were exemplary employees, I can't help but wonder if their age had something to do with this. Anybody else noticed that the age of those laid off... read more
Nobody is safe anymore. I hope The CEO is one of them that gets RIF’d. Directors have gotten the boot today as well. Windstream is tanking. I wish the best for those that get hit today. I have been here 20 years and have never seen anything like... read more
that's the rumour
Just wanted to report layoffs in FP in Harrison - four people were let go.
Frankly, I am glad to be out - I've seen it all here from poor management, to bad training, to VERY misaligned organization and broken processes... To be frank and open most people are good but some bigots - it all depends on how much tolerance for... read more
Richmond ERC. Gone.
Every one will feel this,except bargaining
Well, I just got laid off from Windstream. Good thing I've got n interview tomorrow. Does anyone know if there were more layoffs?
Anyone heard anything?
Ok, talk is Thursday the 18th is the day. Supposed to be a lot.
Windstream is "Re-Branding"....but what is it re-branding...lets hear your ideas
I know everybody believes that Windstream layoffs will not take place before February, but things have been really tense around the office lately and we've been hearing rumors of something big coming next week. It could be a million things, I know... read more
I heard from a reliable source that there was a rebranding coming on February 14th. Is Windstream being bought or merging with another company? If I would have to guess it would with Fromtier. Any thoughts?
I have confirmation that Windstream will be hit, heavily, at the beginning to mid February. Prepare your resumes and be on the hunt. Saw this in another thread, anybody knows more about this? We know something has been brewing for a while now, so a... read more
