BellSouth officially came into existence as a regional branch of the Bell company. In 1984, as a result of a divergent from AT&T, Bell was forced to split its company into smaller, regional services. In 1992, Southern Bell and South Central Bell were combined and absorbed into BellSouth, allowing for BellSouth to further service the Southeast United States. Southern Bell and South Central Bell were part of the original regional Bell companies, and BellSouth continued to rely on the original Bell services and technologies of telephony. In 2007, AT&T officially reacquired the company, making the BellSouth name obsolete; however, in some areas, people still know the company''s services as provided by BellSouth.
Under AT&T, the company continues to offer services such as telephone service, mobile phone service, as well as broadband and DSL home and mobile internet services and home television services. As a result of these expanded and progressive services, BellSouth careers with AT&T are in high demand, and the job forecast for the company remains moderately high as more and more tech positions need to be filled within the company. For those working at BellSouth (now AT&T,) there are a multitude of areas to concentrate on, including traditional retail sales, telephone customer support and technical support, as well as engineering. In addition, with the increase in reliance on computer and Internet technology, the company also provides for positions such as database analyst and information technology security specialist.
BellSouth culture was one of promoting technology advancements, as well as promoting business ethics. Because the company was responsible for handling phone calls and other forms of communications, including text messages and voice mails, it was imperative that all employees, from the top on down, were conscious of the security of their networks, as well as of customer data. As a result of this heavy responsibility, BellSouth was well known for its above average payscale, and many people sought jobs with them because of great BellSouth benefits, such as paid vacation, sick, and personal time, as well as discounts on products and services. While the company was BellSouth, and as it is now AT&T, many people also seek jobs with the company due to above average job security, as well as vast room for advancements, bonuses, and promotions within departments.
