    I've *never* seen them do that. Even when they closed the=20
    call center at which I worked. 60 days' notice, job hunt=20

    That is unless Nextel employees want to move to India. Sprint has a large
    chunk of its customer service there.

    both suck. when my brother had nextel they kept billing him wrong. and he
    kept getting spam text messages and they charged him for them. when he asked
    for text messages to be turned off they told him that they would have to
    turn off his voice mail. what crap

    He worked there for a week. What were you expecting them to do, pay him
    out a year's salary?

    How much of that was due to being in the right place at the right
    time as opposed to being due to the job hunt training?
    I was laid of by a large ISP three years ago and also received
    job hunt training, but it didn't do a bit of good. There were
    no tech job openings within my commute area, and I couldn't
    move away or my wife would have lost a good job.

    AIUI, Nextel has little in the way of call centers as it is; either
    all or a rather large portion of Nextel (Communications -- dunno about
    Partners) CS is outsourced (note I didn't say "offshored"), and a lot
    of Nextel's CS calls are answered in Canada.

    AFAIK, SPCS and Nextel are the only two major carriers to outsource CS
    in any sigificant way; T-Mobile and VZW provide CS almost exclusively
    through company-owned, domestic call centers (they may use outsource
    centers for overflow during busy times), and I believe that Cingular
    does as well, except for "AT&T Wireless"/"Cingular Blue" prepaid CS,
    which got offshored about a year ago. Guess which two carriers
    generally gets highest marks for CS -- yup, TMO and VZW. Hmm...

    How much did "right place at the right time" only happen due to
    training?

    You have posted this crap in MANY places Gerald. First off, if your in
    retail sales for one of these companies, YOUR A LOSER, or your lazy.
    Go get an education, secure a REAL career(job) and make some real money. You
    seem young, your going to find out too late that these companies WILL NOT
    take care of you in the long run.
    Get smart real fast, time is passing you by. The longer you stay in a
    deadend job the more you will suffer later. You won't have a retirement, you
    won't have a 401K to fall back on.You won't get any SSI until your 67 years
    of age (like that will be available then).They will discard you like a pizza
    box later in life.
    Take this as a roadsign in life and change your route, get smart, get going
    be successful. Nows your chance to say goodbye to Sprint/Nextel and get a
    real career.They are forcing your hand, make a SMART choice.
    Start out 2005 by making something goood out of your life, Working as a Rep
    for a company that doesnt give a **** about you is waiting for your personal
    trainwreck to occur.
    AND STOP POSTING THIS SOUR-GRAPES CRAP. We don't feel sorry for you at all,
    you made this choice, either live with it or do something about it. *****ing
    won't do the trick.

    well, I dont understand this merger because of the infra structure
    differences.

    I wonder if Sprint has decided to go GSM?
