Nathan shares his frustrating experience on Yelp, "Only been Nextlink customer for exactly one month and I absolutely hate this company. Lousy service, daily internet disruptions & downtime, and ripoff pricing. Calling even a month ahead to set up internet before moving and they couldn't figure out how to get it turned on until after taking residence. Additionally, at no point did they ever mention that payment was due on the spot when techs (finally) installed their crappy product; I was suddenly, without warning, out over $200 dollars just to get their horrible service turned on. They blame the daily interruption on my router that I brought from my last residence - a high-end Netgear router that never had an issue with my former provider Comcast for nearly five years. I actually logged the number of times over three days when the internet would go out and they 'couldn't see the interruptions in their log' and told me to contact Netgear. I can't say enough negative things about their customer service, product, or the company as a whole - avoid Nextlink if at all possible!"

Worker (Former Employee) says"They dont care about any employees everyone if just another number on a board. When they got the new HR manager everything went down hill in the fastest way. The manager over the construction area from what I can tell doesn't care about any of his employees only if they make him look good at his job."

Human Resources Compliance Specialist (Former Employee) says"If you're not buddies with those above you, you're on your own. Communication from the HR Director is hideous and disconnected. She micromanages, fails to respond to emails, takes credit for your work, has no grasp of Compliance, refuses to allow OSHA investigations or involvement in the Voluntary Protection Program, and subverts federally mandated reporting. Keeps you constantly off balance. ZERO job security!"

Undisclosed (Former Employee) says"This place is an absolute horrible place to work. People rely on their connections (friendships) to advance. They enforce rules to go after people they don't like (I've even seen them change policy to go after somone). If you are friends with the right people you can pretty much get away with anything. This is the most malicious place I have ever worked. Steer clear if at all possible."
Infrastructure supervisor (Former Employee) says"Management has no idea what they're doing your limited on the knowledge and equipment you can gain working here. You get your 40 hours but not much more then that unless there is outages but that's becoming more minimal. You will be getting underpaid. If you need a job this is a good place if you need a career don't come here"
