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

Pros

Good starting hourly pay for a call center. Good initial training. Mon-Fri workweek in the business dept

Cons

Unattainable quotas, lack of on going training, multiple fragmented systems to use. Ridiculous process for promotions and interviewing internal candidates, all about who you know, not whether you are qualified or not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really show active leadership with all employees, not just direct reports. Get feedback on what can be improved. Reasonable quotas.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and nothing else

    Cons

    Lower than low commission structure, high turnover, outdated systems. Im not one to complain about a job but this has been the worst experience ever and im a top performer. You only get your poor hourly pay if you are only one product off from goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a fortune 500 company, learn to pay your employees fairly!!
