Toxic Coworker Hell: Sprint Doesn't Fire Anyone, For Any Reason


3 skullies togetherFrom fidelitypdx, AskReddit

So many of these comments don't have shit on the people I've worked with.

Sprint, the retail store in Tigard, Oregon:

I forget the guy's name, but he was a horribly racist dishonest bastard that would steal from customers, this was 8 years ago. He worked there for years, and was never fired, only shifted to another store across town. Here's some of his exploits:

Refused to help Spanish speaking customers, but if he had to:

  • If it was a bill pay, he would give them a receipt from the previous customer and pocket the money

  • He would add on additional lines of service, then give the phones away as burner phones.

To just about everyone else:

  • He would add on additional features on to their accounts without notifying them (text messaging, internet, ect) to get commission.

  • Lie through his teeth about everything, totally misrepresent the price people were going to pay on their bill.

  • Refuse to fix any of his problems and tell customers they have to go to customer service, "I'm only a salesmen, I can't do that."

  • When he left the store, the next manager instituted a policy whereas if we saw he touched an account we would just fix anything on the account, credit everything, no questions asked.

Regan Fuck youOn and on... Then, I transferred and started working with a shit-for-brains named Nick at a Sprint service center:

  • Regularly created difficult situations by directly insulting customers, he did this arbitrarily for kicks.

  • Refused to do things that he could do

  • Lied about services we preformed for the customer

  • Would refuse to help customers if they didn't speak English well.

  • Flirted with every girl that came in over the age of 14-25.

Then I transferred back to retail and started working with a Persian guy, I think he hated me because I was a veteran, but I don't know. This kid was a moron, a liar, and also regularly refused to help customers. I had to inspect some of his work, and when I found faults he would just continue to do whatever he was doing.

We actually got into shouting matches at work, and the manager refused to do anything. I had enough of him when he flicked a lit cigarette at me, I threatened to beat his ass and he ran inside.

The manager still refused. That manager, Elizabeth, probably still works there, and she was the single stupidest manager I've ever encountered. She got the "transfer don't fire" treatment from Sprint Corporate after some big screw up, and was placed as the store manager; everything went to shit because she had no backbone.

I will NEVER work for Sprint as long as I live!
