Working in a call center environment is both fast-paced and intense. You have to be both caring and diplomatic.

I worked at AT&T full-time for less than a year

ProsAT&T is a well-known, established company. There was no cold-calling or sales involved.

ConsThe management at the time of my employment were not willing to work with my schedule to accommodate my school schedule.

Drama Central at Times

Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
Huntsville, AL

I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe pay and benefits are good, the amount of vacation you get is a plus. The longer you work with the company the more vacation you get. You can become fully vested in the 401k after 3 years of service.

ConsLike anywhere, you are going to have you're problems. The things that happen that are major issues seem to take a back seat to the smaller issues. Smaller issues tend to be blown out of proportion.

Advice to Senior ManagementActually listen to other employees, when you come to visit where you are responsible for at least make an effort to visit the employees and talk with them instead of just the higher up's.

Don't expect life balance! Do expect your commission to drop every April when the structure changes!

Retail Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
Huntsville, AL

I have been working at AT&T

ProsDiscount for 2 lines of phone service.
No physical stress.
Co-worker relationships.
Nice, clean stores.
Best training in the industry.
Good communication from corporate.

ConsCommission structure changes every April- and it drops every April.
Attendance policy is completely unreasonable.
There is no price match policy that makes sense. You will lose customers to WalMart.
Accessories cost way too much- see above WalMart comment.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are so many things we are evaluated on that it is impossible to feel successful. ATT spends tremendous money tracking stupid metrics that don't really matter. Managers need to be on the floor.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
