Re: Us cellular Employesss treated poorley

in the U.S. Cellular forum

I left the company last summer after working there for 5 years... Complete 180 from when i started as far as culture goes. I remember listening to executives say "o we arent changing the D.O. we are updating it) well when miss mcdillon changed employee satisfaction to employee passion i knew something was up. they terminated my Store and Sales managers both within 2 months of eachother.. Then put all the older employees on improvement plans, Luckily my sales ...

they have a ton of unused spectrum in rural areas, hell they have the whole state of indiana and they only use like 7% of it. get them out of their misery. this coming from someone that worked for them for over 4 years.. they are a quickly sinking ship.

in the U.S. Cellular forum

this is a hard pressed issue because of the workload that we have to do without getting paid any kind of commission on. my opinion is they are doing this so they can get the rwc's that make alot of money to quit so they can hire some idiots that have no experience to take our place and be happy with the pay. remember we have miss "im lovin it" in control and you see the people that work at ...

it would be nice for us cellular to get all these new areas but from a business standpoint, you are picking up a Large around of consumers that quite frankly us cellular cannot support. Us cellular cannot match the cricket price plans, so everyone would be converted to a new plan that costs more which would make everyone run. i see the beneficial side of gaining more coverage but dont see how the bottom line consumer growth would happen.

Re: NOKIA
Jan 8, 2010, 12:08 AM
in the U.S. Cellular forum

the reason uscellular doesnt carry nokia phones anymore is because Nokia got rid of their CDMA cellphone devision, then i presume outsourced it to another company in which the quality was not as high as before. so uscellular tried to get 2 handsets last year and they both failed horribly so they gave up on Nokia for now. thats the answer i have gotten.

from what i confirm, we do have a moto android in the horizon as well as 5 or 6 HTC devices in the roadmap for 2010 so i bet atleast 3 or 4 of those will be android based.

US Cell has #BAL but like the person said before... some people dont check this until its too late, i think if u got an alert saying "Your at 75% Of your Minutes" people would realize o damn i gotta slow down" Kind of like the bank alerts you can get, it reduces the possibility of you going over your limit. a great idea i think!

great opinion. however u are soooooo wrong. usc has the best coverage in the central region (illinois, iowa, wisconsin, indiana) so take that vzw and att. 8 times in a row... vzw and att have soo much money but yet they cant spend a dime to get their network as good as little us cellulars, thats pathetic. second off, yes they wont be bought out. no need to, usc is like the little engine that could and always will. tds ...

actually, u can change your plan at anytime without a contract renewal UNLESS ITS A PROMOTION. this is STANDARD with every carrier. i apologize for your misunderstanding but good look, it happens at any carrier you go to.

in the Article: Verizon Seeks Extension in Alltel Asset Spinoff forum

The truth is verizon had a large amount of debt even before they purchased alltel, lets see how long they can run with borrowing funds, maybe they will get to the point where the banks/investors say enough is enough, then what happens?.... start selling largest carrier in the US. Control your debt or you will end up on the streets..

you know why they keep saying that? because we dont know when its gonna be done, the store associates dont deal with software upgrades, they arent level 2 technicians, when they get information im sure someone will post it on here, we are frustrated aswell so please just be patient like we are, this is indeed motorolas fault, not us cellulars.

originally Us Cellular was the only carrier down there. i guess their exclusive rights ran out. and note...Sprint is also a CDMA carrier.

maverick is just a little troll that doesnt like smaller carriers that are "the little engine that could" i personally hope uscellular steps up their game and surprises the big boys...us cell is now the alltel. give them a run for their money!

in the Article: U.S. Cellular Being Pressured by Investors to Sell forum

yes, unlike most of the large players. US Cellular does not have a ton of debt and is more conservative with its spending. O how great would it be if sprint of verizon had to start selling to pay off their debt. US Cellular would pick those up and the tables would suddenly turn to our favor... thats just an illusion at this point tho. but still cool to think ha?

me working for us cellular is upsetting that the month of feb and march we have absolutely NO new phones coming out. so i definately hear ya on that one. the lg ux265 is the first out in early april then the htc touch pro in early april aswell then the new samsung clamshell qwerty in early may. then i predict the blackberry pearl flip in late to june. i know us cellular is vigorously searching for a phone to stick the 19.95 data ...

gotcha, where do you get your information such as "Us cellular roams off sprint in chicago" that i know for a FACT is incorrect. US Cellular runs their own network in the Chicagoland area. Remember when the EL Fire happened and people were stuck in the subways underground....guess whos phones worked and noone elses? yup USCC. Now sir i see you are false. I have had both us cellular and sprint at the same time and i know the difference. Any ...

wow! someone must have had a bad day. but i will agree with you that i do get those almost every week. another once i love is: WHY DO U HAVE TO SEE MY ID? I can give u my creditcard, library card, social security, blah blah. IT DOESNT MATTER, GOVT ID OR NOTHING! ITS A LAW AND IM NOT GETTING FIRED BECAUSE U DRIVE WITHOUT PROPER IDENTIFICATION!
