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

Pros

Great pay, great benefits. Expect a lot of overtime to compensate monthly goals.

Cons

Sales targets can be a bit too high. Extended work hours can easily lead to 50 hour work weeks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Relax, too much stress can make things so much worse.

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

    Pros

    BENEFITS!... At vzw I have a 401 k where verizon matches up to 6%. I have full medical dental health vision coverage for my whole family for less than 1200 a year. The pay is pretty good for a college student. If you do your job efficiently there shouldn't be a problem with you clearing 55k a year thats including salary and commission and does not include bonuses. Based on prior years performance you can receive a 2-4% raise every year. I would say the best perk to the job is that vzw pays up to 8500 a year to schooling. Its very easy to move up the corporate chain and top of the line training.

    Cons

    I hate the retail hours. Verizon likes to change the commission structure a couple times a year. Its based on the needs of the business. At vzw you will learn how a business is ran and why businesses make the decisions they make in regards to fees, prices etc.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, meet great people.

    Cons

    stressful work environment, not flexible for single parents, Show favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that there is more to life than Verizon. People have kids and their own health to take care of, which is why EMS was always there.
