    I have been working at Verizon part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules. Nice people to work with, most of the time.

    Cons

    Lack of training. Lot's of homework. Commission levels set High. Change of work schedule with out sufficient notice. Weekend work, and work on the evening of a holiday. Pay dates, 7th and 22nd at 3:00 PM, not before 3 PM. If your not scheduled to work on the 7th or 22nd you must drive to employers address to pick up pay check. Program for entering an order takes to long. Some customers hang up the phone. Orders may cancel which causes charge back to employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employee's before putting them on the phone. New employee's should not make calls to customers with only 8 hours of training - 8 hours is insufficient. Attitude with employee's because they don't get it right away is stressful.

    Pros

    Base salaries are generally competitive

    Cons

    Lousy benefits and increasing employee portion paid
    Management driven by executive bonuses and stock price - employees do not matter
    Poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate employee experience rather than numerically reduce staff (thousands laid off this way)
    Re-engage training programs to give employees hope and a future

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
