    I have been working at Alltel full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Currently there aren't any pros.

    Cons

    Brown nosing is a must. If you're good at this, this is the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be considerate of others. Consideration of what actually goes on in the work place is not known to superiors. Just corporate's ability to manage a business from their office unaware of what actually goes on or how it effects customers or employees

    Pros

    It was great being part of a team. They always listened to us. Taught us core values and made sure we upheld them. It was a great place to work. Everyone was treated fairly and dealt with honestly.

    Cons

    There were many levels in the company. It was hard to get to know others outside of your core business unit, however that did take place the more you moved up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 360-degree review process was outstanding, however it might pay to re-evaulate your employees and do a skills assessment every 18 months or so. I was turned down for many jobs I was well qualified for as an internal applicant with no reason why.

    Pros

    They make our government system look flawless.

    Cons

    Idiot leadership, no structure, no organization, back-stabbing liars. This is not the real Alltel. Alltel closed in July 2009! What exists are a bunch of monkeys in suits and dresses pretending to run a business comprised of silly employees and 2 cans tied together with a string for a network. They are failures and they need to hand it over to people with real business skills instead of C.A.R.E university training. This company is a joke. Job hunters - keep it moving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves, and get a college degree.

    Good commission. Fun co workers.

    Eliminate the micromanaging of store that do well without.

    Pros

    Pay is better then average for retail.

    Cons

    Upper Management and Corporate is centered hundreds of miles for the closest store. The computer systems are completely unreliable. Management in Ohio forces employees to work more then 40 hours, but claim 40 for fear of being fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign

    Pros

    Good work hours, pay and benefits. Worked indepently unsupervised. Company vehicle. Daily travel at the most 150 miles. Discounts on wireless service.

    Cons

    Management needs to buy a clue. Promotions based on what have you done lately. Last minute communications were prevelant always.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better thought process when it comes to sales. Don't do whatever it takes and break company policy for your advantage.
