Pros

Verizon has great benefits and you get to start using them on day one which most companies don't do. Verizon is always trying to be on the cutting edge of technology which is great because you get access to all of the latest gadgets,

Cons

Micro management. They are on you about every little thing, you can be the top sales person in your location but they will always find something to get on you about. Not enough praise for the good work you do. Retail hours aren't fun no matter where you work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give everyone a chance to be promoted. Don't pre pick your candidate before even having interviews.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good not great but good. Over the years they have figured out how to pay less and less.

    Cons

    For the amount of crap they put you through I don't think the pay is enough. Sales reps and managers are nothing but numbers to them if they don't have their number above quota they will find a way to get rid of you. The pressure on them is ridiculous...no human being should be treated this way. They are big on threatening your job to so called "motivate you" to sell sell sell!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None...you wouldn't listen anyway they are the ones that created the environment so what is point in wasting my breath.
