T-Mobile USA employees, brace yourself for more dour news: Your job may be on the line.
The company plans to cut 900 jobs, its second round of layoffs in recent months, The Wall Street Journal reported.
“We are restructuring the organization and optimizing operations so that we can make critical decisions better and faster,” the nation’s fourth-largest wireless carrier said in an e-mailed statement to the newspaper. “By reducing our cost structure and streamlining operations, T-Mobile will be able to invest in areas where we anticipate the strongest return.”
Bellevue, Wash.-based T-Mobile revealed in March that it planned to consolidate call centers from 24 to 17 facilities and cut 1,900 jobs.
A spokesperson told the Journal the cuts wouldn’t impact the remaining 17 call centers, engineers, technicians or salespeople in T-Mobile retail locations.
T-Mobile is struggling to improve its finances and make a comeback after its merger with AT&T failed, though it continues to suffer heavy casualties in its base of contract customers.
