    Sprint can't afford to pay CS any more if they're losing money. One wonders
    if Sprint cares about CS at all, with them ranking last.

    Re: Question for Big Poppa

    If phonescoop had a killfilter I would use it on quite a few people..
    but they don't.. phonescoop is the only way for me to access the group
    while i'm at work in between calls.

    If Sprint put more money into paying their employees a decnt wage,
    customer service would probably improve. and hopefully the improvment
    would mean less loss of money from people canceling..

    Sprint made bad marketing decisions when it came to the clear pay
    services anyways. The majorty of the people coming on to clear pay
    expect to have their hands held like children.. None of them have ever
    heard of self-service. They have to have someone else do it for them.
    They don't bother researching the service or contracts they are getting
    into because Sprint is the only company that will allow them to join in
    without paysing HUGE deposits.. The year Sprint PCS LOST more customers
    than they gained, was primarily becuz of all the clear-pay accounts
    Sprint canceled and wrote off due to non payments.

    Perhaps you should be helping customers instead of posting. Just a thought.

    True. But you know how corporations are. Besides, if the people are
    underpaid, they can leave.

    The service contracts and terms of service are a ****ing joke. Not just for
    Sprint. It basically attempts to trap a customer in a contract in which the
    carrier agrees to do absolutely NOTHING. Not even provide service.

    Re: Question for Big Poppa

    1. I am not customer service, I am a welcome call rep. some weeks I take
    inbound, which is VERY slow, usually like 30 minutes inbetween calls.. I
    gotta find SOMETHING to do. So I read the group.

    2. Yes it is true they can leave, but MOST of the people Sprint hire, at
    least at the call center I worked. Usually have no expereince in
    anything to get a better paying job. (which is another reason customer
    service sucks right now) Most of the time all they have is a high-school
    diploma and no college.

    3. I said nothing about the Terms of Service, I said Service and
    Contracts.. Most people that only qualify for clear pay to not do
    research into the company they are joining up which, and rarely do they
    even read a contract before they sign it. The devil could make a killing
    on new souls if he was a Sprint Rep.. Have people sing their souls over
    to them without them even knowing. LOL people need to learn to READ, and
    RESEARCH, and most of all ASK QUESTIONS! Don't expect for ANY company to
    answer unasked questions. Take it upon yourself to ASK. Nothing is done
    right unless you take it upon yourself to make sure.

    A valid contract under the UCC requires consideration on both parties.
    Wireless carriers contracts barely qualify.

    Besides, the people in the stores lie out their ass when you ask them
    questions, especially about coverage.

    Re: Question for Big Poppa

    When it comes to coverage that is a touchy subject..all they can really
    do is go by the map, unless they have been in the area that your asking
    about... You could alos have them show you on the mapping system the
    area your asking about to get a little more detailed info.

    But that is what the 14 day policy is for, try it for 14 days, if the
    coverage stinks, take it back.

    What about 5 months down the road, when the carrier hasn't maintained the
    network, and service becomes crappy?

    CSR II at Sprint make one dollar less than double the minimum wage - as
    beginning salary - plus it is not hard to make a considerable amount more for
    good scores on customer satisfaction and bonuses for upselling.

    Are you saying you are getting more than that at Verizon for sale job?

    You are exactly right on this - this was the year when Sprint cleaned house
    so-to-speak on this type of account of the customers who abused the privilege
    of having an account with a low deposit.

    Not true for all call centers - with the economy and lack of jobs being what it
    is now - call centers are attracting more mature people with college and
    degrees.

    I Don't work in sales.. But when I started at Sprint in Customer Service
    in a call center, I stated out making $8.90 and hour. in 3month they
    converted the center to take buisiness calls, and gave us a prorated
    raise, and I was raised to about $9.50.. Then My yealry raise came I got
    a 10% raise to about $10.37..When I started at VZW I started off at
    $11.53, and have been here since 06/30 and just got a compensation raise
    and Am now making $12.50.. Not great pay, but good for what type of work
    I do.. Sprint PCS should be paying thier employees at LEAST that if not
    more, if employee moral is to increase.
