Sprint has just laid off a huge 2500 employees, with most of the job losses coming from customer service centers spread through the United States, according to Reuters.




These layoffs will see Sprint closing four of its call centers, and scaling back two others. Customer service jobs are the most affected, with 2000 to be laid off from customer service rolls. The remaining 500 jobs will be cut from Sprint HQ. The company started off the year with 33,000 employees - but the layoffs have been expected for a while now, reports The Verge.


The company has fallen into fourth place in the wireless market, with Sprint trying to cut costs wherever it can - attempting to save $2.5 billion. Sprint's parent company said months ago that thousands of job cuts were in its immediate future, with the company set to notify employees by the end of the month.
