Thanks ballsack, yea I called the person who contacted me about my work history and asked if they knew the status of my application. I will give you potential new hires some advice. DONT CALL AND ASK THE STATUS OF YOUR APP!! They get pissed and just tell you to wait for their call. She probably put me on the barred list because she sounded pretty upset. I just thanked her for her time and apologized if I was being a nuisance but I explained to her I was hungry for this job. She said so is a thousand other applicants are also! Well we'll see what happens from here. Thanks everyone who responded to me. YOU GUYS ROCK!!! I still be on here from time to time so let's just hang in there future AT&T techs. WOOP WOOP!!!

Wow. Don't know if they have been instructed to act like that, but that lady sounds like a bitch, imo.

Howdy is no longer correct.

New contracts are coming in to effect in different districts. D4 so far has gotten the biggest base pay increase.(3.25 at all levels)

D6, D3, and D1 still don't have contracts. D9 only has a tentative.

Don't listen to old posts here on the pay rates! They are changing and we won't know for sure until everyone has a contract.

CAN SOMEONE PLEAAAASSSSSEEEEEEE HELP ME OUT??????!!!!

I live in st. Louis, mo and I took my tmft II test back towards the beginning of july. I passed my test and haven't heard anything back from the company since. After looking through numerous posts on here day after day after day(literally), I saw that att contacts you about a physical/drug test then you have to go to training. I won't have a problem with either 1 of those and I'm not concerned with all the negativity about the job as well. I'm only 24 years old and I'm willing to do whatever I can to be better in the workplace. People have their own individual opinion about the company, and once I get in I will eventually form my own.

I know this is a dallas forum. But I haven't seen any other forums like this pertaining to my area(st. Louis). I have a baby on the way within a matter of days and I really need/want to start this job asap. I work a part time job currently, but child support from a previous child takes nearly half of each paycheck. so if it wasn't for my girlfriend living with me I don't know what I'd be doing.

I called the hr department a few weeks ago and she told me a new training class would be starting "next month" (september). I know there have been people waiting for a call from att for almost a year. Should I call back to hr and bother them about this upcoming training class or just sit back and bite on my fingernails waiting for them to call me??

I recently took the Technical/Mechanical Test - Field II this week for Premise Tech and PASSED. The test center gave me a printout that says Congratulations your :Qualified.

I've been reading the post and many say they were prompted about what pay scale they would receive after the test or if they tested well enough for a higher position.

Did your test outcome just say Qualified or something else to those who passed the test?

Also forgot to add. Whats the physical like???

Last physical I had the doctor touched my balls to check for lumps(lol),drew blood,stuck my tongue out,checked heart beat,took deep breaths.

I dont want AT&T doing all that or is it just a physical to check to see if you can lift stuff without hurting yourself and possible suing AT&T...??

Hello:
See my notes from page 44 of this blog from September 2008.
Physical and Drug test. here is what I remember:
* The drug test was a piss test. no big deal.
* The Physical was a series of general health questions, followed by 4 tests:
1 - 14 situps in 60 seconds.(I did them in 30)
2 - Simultaneously lift two hand-weights, one in each hand, 4 times each, while squatting down to knee level, and then rising back to full height. The total "weight" was changed each of the 4 times, from: 20 lbs, 40 lbs, 60 lbs, and then 80 lbs.
3 - lay on your stomach and hold your upper body, and then legs, a foot off the groud for 10 seconds each.
4 - lay on your back, and hold your feet in the air for 10 seconds.
That was it. Nothing more. I was told that I passed the physical, and that the drug test would be sent to a lab.

I'm not an "it is what it is" bend over and accept it flake, I have more than that running through my veins, it really sickens me that so many write the bad off to make it sound acceptable by using the laime phrase, it is what it is, by the way did AT&T look at crafts proposal and say ok, it is what is is? I logged more hours in union halls than you have clocked in working period, Show the positives, Being Perm? Thats Bullshit With pip and harrassment you are always still one step from the door, And Being Term or being perm makes a shit of difference if your in a cesspool, Whoever sold you the contract in a way that has you warm and fuzzy should be selling swamp land in florida, You should have voted No, and stuck with that. see Ya , Oh By the way write and post back 3 years from now, PS Thanks CWA For Shit!
...I agree with Pair!!!!!!!!..Techs who say it is what it is sound more like Managers. The last 3 years Ive been workin in Uverse, and all ive heard is it is what it is....Please people...don't you realize the company wants us to pay for health care when we haven't had to. Why because not the UNION but the MEMBERS RATIFIED THE D4 CONTRACT. D9 do the right thing...hold out...give us a chance...D6 understands what is at stake and is behind you u, but don't sell out. The company wants to take take take take...wake up people...for every action there is a negative reaction...

I just signed into my career account and it said "Resume Acknowledged". Anyone know what that means? Is that a good sign of getting hired?

go to att jobs, dont forget the dot. go to a job like your gonna apply for it. when you click apply you'll see something on the top right corner that says sign in. sign in using your user name and password for when you first applied for the job. then look in your job cart. it will show you the "status" of your application. I hope this may help you a little!

The Appendixes most Prem Techs are under, do two things. One, it Gives the Unions the chance to collect dues, and two, not have to do a damn thing for Prem Techs in the process. Every Prem Tech I talked to in District 9 has voted no. We got hard working MST'S and ST'S that worked hard to get what they got, and they are not willing to strike for the new guys on the block.
