Even though it is closing, can we still be friends and come and argue every now and then?

What do we have left to argue about?
You had an opinion that we will never know if it was right or not.
My predictions were right on.

Why doesn't that Rich bastard Allen Hurley share some money with his previous employees instead of hording it all? We are the ones that made him his millions. He probably knew that T-moblie was going to sell out to At&t and he bailed on us. I hate greedy people that have enough money to buy anything they could ever want and still want more.

Don't worry guys. Hatfield closing was the best thing that happened to me. I have a better job with better pay & benefits. 401k starts the day you go permanent, they put in 2% even if you don't contribute & match the first 3% you put in. Health insurance starts the following month. I can go to my boss & ask the for the next day off & not worry about getting a point for it. And I've gotten 3 pay raises in the past year & a half.

with the events that happened today involving a gun and the call for more security why is it that probaly 3 of the best security guards in the tri-cities are sitting around working on cell phones because Dennis Ley has a personnal problem with them. These guards really cares about us and our safety. maybe dennis ley needs to leave and we can get them back

I was a bench tech at the hafield plant. I left before the ship sunk. I am telling everyone GET OUT! They are domed. And a special note to management, how does you boss taste? YES THAT IS RIGHT! Should have listened, and you would have never lost Ausurion. The rest will fall like domimos. To good employees, find a better job while you can. In fact management should do the same. It's a shame really. TW had great potential. They will have to change or sink.
Good luck people. God bless. Even management.

I worked for this place when it was Eastern Wireless, before it merged. It was a crap-hole back then as well. We're talking 2001-2003 I am so glad to see the place finally tanked. It is a shame because the original owner, Brian, was a pretty nice guy face to face (at first). Once he moved the place out of Telford it all went to hell. That's when the forced overtime with no advance notice set in. That's when the money started to change him. That's when that prick John Youngblood from Verizon really started tanking the company. Every day we were just one phone away from the company going bankrupt (or so they told us). I walked out and gave them the finger just as they were merging into what became Touchstone.

I feel sorry for everyone who became jobless or had to deal with the shit this place dealt on a daily basis. However it is very fulfilling to see justice finally came full circle.

Yeah I am sure there is a dozen or so that have found a better job, but if there like me then no they haven't found a real job. I more then likely going to get one just seems worse or just as bad as TW. I miss the job I had it was crap but had a lot of good people there.

Wow, how sad that this still takes so much of your time and effort. It has been over for a good while now, put some of the effort you put into posting on here into finding a job and move on with your life. It makes me sad to know that some of your lives are so sad that this is all you have, maybe one day you'll get a different hobby or something.

I worked at Touchstone from 2008-2010. I was part of the crew that went down to Georgia to the T-Mobile facility to QC some phones we had already sent. We worked 14 to 15 hour days and failed over 1600 phones. These were phones we had already sent out. While there, T-Mobile was extremely helpful. Their QC department came over to our area and told us exactly what they were looking for. They wanted it to work. My idea was that we take their quality requirements and we make them our own, but make ours just a little bit better. That way, T-Mobile would stay happy with us.

Once we returned to Bristol, I was informed by other people in QC that they were told to let even more stuff go through while we were gone. That showed me that there was absolutely no communication going on. It was at that point I realized that Touchstone was a sinking ship and it was time to find a new job before I was competing with 600 other people. I told my friends and other people in the department that they should do the same. I left and never looked back.

Now, I've moved on. I went back to school, and I will have a BSBA degree in Marketing in May. Getting out of that hell hole was the best move I have made.
