I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Fast paced (even with bureaucracy), Technology driven, Supportive management, Great compensation and benefit packages, Recognize production

Cons

Not a 9-5 job (but it's what may also has helped us be so successful), so may not be right for everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember to let employees think and work outside the box... Gen Y works different than the Baby Boomers... not harder or less, differently.

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team environment, Constant training to make sure that you're up to par, Supervisors that genuinely care and listen, clean and up to date facilities, friendly and fun environment. Excellent benefits package 401K and Full medical from day one. An attendance policy that's not too rigid.

    Cons

    It's almost impossible to get promoted even if you have top notch skills and experience. One get's the impression that they already know who to give a position to and the interview process is just there to fulfill a state/Federal requirement. It's not unusual to hear of people interviewing for a position over ten times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job but a little more visibility and interaction with employees. Take time to listen to what they have to say.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The kids that work there are chill. You get a small dicount on phone/plan/accessories. Flexible hours, not that busy, relatively pretty easy retail job.

    Cons

    This is a Franchise of Verizon. This means they can act like a Verizon Corp store, but cannot do things that corp can do. So if we have a problem we call Verizon Corp.... essentially these are retail stores making money off the accessories, upgrades and activations. Thats why the owner makes bank.....$8 p/hr + commission. However, if you do not meet your quota, then you do not recieve your commission... which is around $300-$1500. So you end up making $8 p/hr and get taxed on top of that (which is like $600 p/month!! hahaha a joke, and the gas that takes you to drive to work, and the occassional lunches & coffees you purchase during an 8 hour shift... yea not worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the base pay of $8 p/hr. Provide guaranteed commission and upgrade each individual store... new paint, deep clean (store & bathroom), not entirely compose management of family members (owner is Persian and the list of employees are extensively persian). I would work for Verizon directly.
