Darth Vader and the “Clockwork Orange” Guy Do Facebook Updates (Video)

Sprint_EverythingsImportant13

While you kind of feel badly for them, James Earl Jones and Malcolm McDowell manage to still look classy in the new Sprint commercials, in which they emote on a phone call and, in another, on Facebook updates for someone named Jenna.

“I think I see you. Nope, wasn’t you,” booms Jones, who has most memorably been the voice of Darth Vader in the “Star Wars” films, among other big roles.

“Now, I’m by the tools … now, I’m by the linens,” responds McDowell, who once starred as Alex in the movie classic, “A Clockwork Orange.”

Sprint Cuts 800 Customer Service Jobs, but Doesn’t Foresee Companywide Layoffs

Sprint confirmed on Tuesday that it is cutting approximately 800 jobs in its customer support operations.

Most of the affected workers were notified last week, while a small number of additional positions will be cut next month, Sprint spokeswoman Jennifer Schuler said.

“This action is the result of organizational adjustments being made to meet the changing needs of our business,” Schuler said, noting that the company is getting fewer support calls since improving its customer satisfaction. “As customer satisfaction improves and in turn calls to customer care decrease, our staffing needs in this area decrease. This organizational action keeps our costs in line with these efficiencies.”

Schuler said that the company does not foresee companywide cuts.

“At this point we have no plans for any companywide layoffs – but as a corporation managing its day-to-day business, we have to continue to look at staffing in each area of the business to make sure we are aligned correctly with our financial goals and areas of growth for the company,” Schuler said. “Ultimately, there will continue to be areas where we are hiring, as well as areas where we will go down in our workforce. We certainly don’t make any decision to reduce the workforce lightly.”

Sprint employs about 40,000 workers in total, a number that Schuler said is not expected to change significantly. The company continues to hire in areas “that support our corporate strategy,” Schuler said.

The carrier previously closed 29 call centers, a move CEO Dan Hesse said was enabled by reducing customer gripes.

“Great customer service costs less,” Hesse said in a meeting with journalists last year. “When we were last in the industry, we were spending twice as much.”

The cuts, which were reported earlier Tuesday by Bloomberg, are the first since SoftBank took a majority stake in the No. 3 wireless carrier earlier this year.

AT&T Fares Well at Apple, Sprint Outperforms at Best Buy, While Verizon Does Better at Mass Retail

The bulk of each cellular carrier’s sales come through their own stores. That’s why it seems like there is one at every corner.

best buy mobile

But there are other important retailers, including Best Buy and Apple stores, as well as the Costcos, Walmarts and Targets of the world. The carriers, however, don’t benefit equally from each third-party store that carriers their products.

A survey from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners finds that AT&T, for example, gets 57 percent of iPhone sales at the Apple Stores, compared to 28 percent for Verizon, with the remainder going either to Sprint or unlocked devices that find their way to T-Mobile or another carrier.

Sprint, meanwhile, fares well at Best Buy, where it and Verizon both accounted for 21 percent of sales, according to the survey. Verizon, meanwhile, did best at big-box stores such as Walmart, Target and the warehouse chains.

“AT&T appears to do better than its average at Apple Stores and the Apple website, which makes sense seeing as it has offered iPhone the longest, and iPhone 5 launched in the survey period,” Consumer Intelligence Research Partners’ Michael Levin said in an email interview. “It does a little worse at Amazon. In contrast, Verizon does better at mass/warehouse retailers (Walmart, Target, etc.) and worse at Best Buy and eBay.”

The survey polled customers who activated phones between October and December, so Apple is likely overrepresented, given the iPhone 5 launch. For example, the study found Apple’s stores to be bigger than most carrier stores, including those of Sprint and T-Mobile.
