Sprint is prepared to lay off an unknown number of employees, according to filings the company made with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The cuts are part of a restructuring plan that the company announced today. Sprint employs about 39,000 people around the U.S. The Associated Press suggests the cuts might be significant based on the size of the charges Sprint expects to take on the workforce reduction. Sprint said it is still reviewing how many employees it will cut, but expects the reductions to be complete by June. More information should become available when Sprint announces earnings February 11.

No surprise

I was offered a good position at Sprint several times, but turned it down each time. they do too much corporate restructuring and management seems to suffer the moth. You cant really cut staff to the stores. But dealer support, b2b sales, district managers, and so forth can be culled and the remaining pick up a higher workload. Same thing happens at T-mobile. Not secure enoigh employment. Too many friends have been laid off for me to work at either.
"Restructuring" lmao!!!!! Sprint has been restructuring for the past 7yrs!!!

Ticking time bomb....

No surprise indeed, sprints a ticking time bomb, someone just needs to put them out of their misery already, their brand is trashed (regardless of what anyone says) everyone i've run into at my experience in another carrier (one of the big two) always has a negative view of sprint, if they do indeed merge with T-mobile they should keep their brand instead or do away with both and keep a Softbank USA logo, anything but sprint. Another poster is right though, they have been for several years since NEXTEL. It'd be much better for them to keep the T-Mobile higher ups and keep changing the wireless landscape (though i'm sure it will slow down considerably in a merger).

They are dropping workers just like they drop calls

I can't wait to see what poop coverage combined with poop coverage will make. My prediction more poop. Laughing
