By getting involved with as many things as possible. The Ambassador program, leadership courses, co-sitting and or shadowing other departments to see what they do. And how communication between the different groups led to a better customer experience for the cable customer and my customer, which happened to be technical operations
Some of my co-workers were awesome people, and very fun to be around. #
Went to work for gcom, should have stayed w/ajilon
My woman manager wanted me to lie about the number of diodes or capacitors in a bag and i would not comply. She said I was rebellious and the company sent me to Red River College for communication skills clas.
I ran a crew of 24 who were adept at all parts of the job. Splicing, placing, repair, installation, and fiber optics.
Never a co-worker, customers were always appeased by that we would do everything in our power to get the job done at all cost.
Windstream is a horrible company to work for. I was terminated over the phone after being there 20 years. Iwas told by my manager to call into a mandatory meeting while I was on my vacation. I was never treated like a human being with any sort of respect. In the 4 years under a new manager, I never once met them in person. It's a totally impersonal, non team building, cubicle isolating place and irresponsible company. Just a short time after my termination, the same job was posted to refill my position at a lower salary. I find my exit to be a blessing as I do not want to work for such a company. No one deserves to be treated in such a way.
I got fired because of my performance. I'm a PBX operator and answering fast is my job. The job is at a cancer center and they bend your ear if you let them! Coming off my honeymoon, I get called into the office and get told my call report for last month was horrible! I took the last amount of calls for the entire month and made busy so many times, they feel I robbed the company of money! Duh, I do get a paycheck from you guys right? Anyway, is there something I can do to save face or let corporate know what's going on? The paper I signed states I didn't have any extra duties that would make me busy our so much. My supervisor had me and my other operators preform medical records duties; stating"you're just answering the phone, you have time to do it." I feel like filing a grievance and fighting until corporate hears me! Somebody help me out...
WI closed all its schools for 3 weeks, and a lot of people I know are anxious about making a living while kids are at home and/or how their kids will still get an education. Charter and Spectrum are offering free internet so students can continue to learn remotely. Any other providers in other service areas doing the same? #Wisconsin #Coronavirus
