    It all started from a former CSR posting at www.sprintpcssucks.org complaining
    he was told to keep calls under 5 minutes and change. Since then we've had a
    number of current and former reps tell us:

    1. To some degree it depends on the manager and the call center
    2. CSRs are encouraged to "Complete the Call"
    3. In some cases they are given arbitrary average call times to achieve.
    4. No one is ever told all calls have to be under a specific time.
    5. Reps must also "upsell" sometimes its long distance, sometimes its advantage
    agreements, for a while it was vision. Some can do this subtly, others want to
    make their bonus and are obnoxious.
    6. Some reps will lie to you to get you off the phone.
    7. Some reps do not want to be downgraded by "escalating" a call.
    8. It is near impossible now to get a call escalated to "Executive Services"
    which are folks that have sufficient authority to solve problems. Their phone
    number is
    listed at
    9. Many issues take multiple calls, i.e. why does my 8100 go to roaming if they
    are ever solved.
    10. Training is poor. Its common to find reps that dont know how to flag an
    account for a PRL update or know how to do an ESN change.

    It's too bad SprintPCS apologists are obfuscating by creating a false issue
    that all calls have to be under 6 minutes.

    And worst of all JD Power survey found SprintPCS Customer Service rated worst
    in the industry, and SprintPCS apologists have refused to accept that fact,
    although when JD Power rates Sprint wireline service high, no one has a problem
    quoting JD Power.

    Oh brother ... here come all of Phillipe's old arguments as presented by
    who? Phillipe of course. So Phillipe, why the need to change back to this
    identity? Things get too hot for you? Too many people caught onto your DSL
    GURU trolling style?

    Why don't you enlighten us why the change of IDs ... again!

    Holly Cow !!
    Is that you phil ? Of course it is.
    Now let me ask you an honest question, if you really aren't a TROLL and
    are as you say , sincere about what you post and just trying to help
    you'll answer this honestly.
    Why do you find it necessary to constantly change your ID ?
    PLEASE, everyone, just let him answer this 1st w/o posting before him,
    it would only allow him to skirt the issue, i really would like him to
    answer this Thanks

    You are one dumb person aren't you(that's not a question).

    My wife worked for JCPenney for 10 years. Her call times were set at 3
    minutes. They had to sell items to people beyond what they ordered.
    During the holiday season it was wraping paper.

    If they went over 3 minutes they would be told about there call times.
    If the trend continued she would be written up. If it became a regular
    thing they would consider termination.

    Her calls averaged 1.5 minutes.

    You obviously know nothing about what you post here. So why don't you
    just shut the **** up so I/we/us people can discuss sprint cell
    information and problems without your inane and group clogging worthless
    crap.

    Well, Phil- you'd be the expert at hiding behind multiple names.

    No, it is me R. I am just getting really sick of having to look at all
    the garbage you spew into this group and hitting next, next, next, next
    etc..... to get through all of your worthless posts.

    What I posted is absolutely true about my wife working at JCPenney. That
    is fact. not the worthless dribble that you continue to spew into this
    group.

    My last post on this. I got my point across.
