    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits from day 1, somewhat flexible work schedule, lots of shadowing and trainings to complete.

    Cons

    It was a cut throat work environment where management played favorites. Extremely difficult for a new hire to adapt. Zero fun to deal with tech/billing questions while a colleague closes a deal of new line activations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I sat in the break area for 45 minutes before a manager approached me for my in store training day. Almost all of the tasks I was supposed to complete in store were skipped. Once I began working full-time performance communication was very limited except when managers would discuss performance plans and critique your sales methods.
