    Cons

    The landline business is dead and Verizon knows it. My job was to sell landlines, internet, and well as high tech solutions such as cloud and MPLS networks. This idea sounds great at first, until you realize that 90% of your clients and leads are mom and pop shops who only have a budget of MAYBE $3-500 a month. Sure you (barely) get compensated for selling phone lines and internet, which is all most of your clients can afford, but it's nowhere near enough to hit your ever-increasing quota every month. You lose most of your potential sales to AT&T and other providers that are at times half the cost of what Verizon can provide. If you like consistency, avoid this job. My quota increased 4 times in one year, your job expectations changed almost weekly, and management adds pointless and time consuming tasks for you to complete often to help with their "reporting", and your credit for selling certain products always goes DOWN....not up. There are literally hundreds of ways to quote and configure solutions for clients. If you are new or need to learn how to complete a quote...good luck finding someone who knows how to do it... with over 300 different products, it's impossible to know all of them. Worst of all...you are not in control of your pay. Let me explain. When you make a sale, your order goes to an implementer, from the implementer, the implementer schedules the technician to install the product and also sends your compensation amount to THE order entry person (there is only one for over 90 sales reps). You are paid comp monthly. If the implementer, technician, or order entry person screws up, YOU DONT GET PAID. It's expected to be your job to baby and monitor all of these people if you expect to get paid what you work for. If you don't catch their mistake, it's your fault, not theirs and you don't get paid. This job was the most frustrating job I have had in my life. I wouldn't recommend my worst enemy to work here.The stress affected a lot of people's home life. If you get a call from a recruiter, do yourself a favor and say "no thank you"! Or if you don't believe me, in your interview, just ask the manager if you can walk out on the floor and get an idea for a feel of the place. Ask any rep if they like their job.

    Advice to Management

    The managers actually did a good job. They had to go through a lot of what we did...plus some. It's the upper management that needs to wake up and realize that the reason people are leaving is because they are treated unfairly. Upper management views their employees by what they sell each month, not their names....they could care less about you as a person. You could hit your quota 3 months in a row and when you have a tough month...your job is threatened.
