Current Employee - Senior Retail Sales Representative in Peabody, MA

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

Pros

Good pay
Good benefits
401K company match up to 6%
Vacation and benefits start immediately
Store management tends to support you

Cons

Long retail hours
Incredibly focused on sales attainment and will let you go if you cannot meet sales goals
Expected to push non-sales initiatives and given no compensation for attaining those goals

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate and retail management are often at odds with their policies. You are encouraged to do whatever it takes to get the sale and encouraged to ignore policies that make that job harder.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The type of work you do is very rewarding. Building relationships that can last long after sale are valuable to your business as well as enriching to you as a person. The benefits provided by Verizon Wireless are also substantial and compensation is fair. Top notch training prepare you for your career with Verizon Wireless and keep you fresh in the workplace.

    Cons

    Possibility of long work hours/days, especially during holiday times, as this is a retail sales position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to be facilitators as opposed to another Retail Sales Representative with more authority. Cater to your representatives and do everything you can to make them successful without selling for them.
