TEMPLE – Kan.-based Sprint Corp. is laying off 284 employees at its Temple, Fort Worth and Irving offices. Job eliminations have begun, and are within business and technical support.

Terminations will include:

  • 165 positions in Temple;
  • 106 positions in Fort Worth; and
  • 13 in Irving.

The company expects another round of layoffs in September 2013 that, when added to the first round, will amount to 800 total jobs eliminated nationwide. The second round will be within the customer management group.

The layoffs are permanent, according to Sprint, and employees do not have bumping rights.

Sprint expects workforce numbers to stay relatively close to its 40,000-employee count, said Jennifer Schuler, Sprint Communications Manager. The company also expects to continue hiring about 1,500 employees a month.
