    Current Employee - Operations Supervisor in Milpitas, CA
    Current Employee - Operations Supervisor in Milpitas, CA

    I have been working at Flextronics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Average pay for tactical work, thinking not required

    Cons

    If you are someone who likes to do what is told, like working with a bunch of robots, not-so-bright, not-so-ambitious, and not-so-talented people, then this is the place for you. Depressing environment, with old office furnitures, filthy bathrooms, no office supplies, no kitchen supplies, and dungeon-like facility. No room for growth. Arrogant people that has worked there all their lives and know nothing better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire intelligent, talented and professional individuals who can make a difference and fire those who are useless.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Technician in Lake Grove, NY
    Current Employee - Customer Service Technician in Lake Grove, NY

    Pros

    Only place to make $15/hr without a college degree and/or some technical skills these days. If you are good at phones and sales, this is a great job.

    Cons

    Don't expect training on the phones. Training is on customer service and general information that totally does not prepare you for the job, and once you start the job, your coworkers will be too busy to help you learn how to solve the particular customer service problems you get. So you'll end up just exchanging lots of phones because you don't know what is wrong with them. You will also try desparately to upsell upsell upsell, even though many customers need absolutely nothing, or worse, are coming to you with their 2nd or 3rd defective advice - but you are supposed to upsell upsell upsell. The Verizon employees are not nice to you, management would come in every week or so and observe you (intimidating), then critique it to death, but not really offer any support.
