I have been working at Verizon full-time for less than a year
Verizon is a great company to work for. They take great care of their employees and they spare no expense to do so. It is very obvious. You get a base pay, and commission also. The benefits package... is very generous and it starts on your first day of work. You get excellent benefits for minimal cost. You also get a lot of paid time off. Direct management has been very supportive in my experience. My store has good leaders who do try and push us to success. The company does lead by example and invests and rewards its employees as well. This is a company you can definitely grow with, and would want to grow with. There is opportunity to move up, and so many areas of work at Verizon. They also have a great 401k plan with a 6% match. Profit sharing as well. You also get 50% off your service plan as well. The good definitely outweighs the bad.
Commission that is heavily based on customer surveys. Ever since commission was changed to team based and surveys, pay has decreased quite a lot. Customers will repeatedly leave bad surveys due to... issues we can’t help them with due to a variety of reasons. Those surveys are hard to recover and it hurts our payout. Sometimes they have nothing to do with an interaction at our store. It’s a broken system that needs to be fixed. Speaking of broken systems, our POS system has a lot of bugs and constantly crashes. Delaying transactions and worsening the customer experience. Hopefully this will be remedied in the future. Last con I would have to say is work-life balance. Sometimes you end up working 6 days straight in a work week due to schedule adjustments. Sometimes your days off are split and you have to work extra long days other times. The scheduling could be more organized, and that would improve work-life balance. Also unsure/concerned of the future of retail. For Verizon but also in general. Guess we’ll find out.
Advice to Management
Direct management has been great in my experience. I have great leaders at my store that help us achieve our goals. It’s upper management that is typically out of touch with reality and have... expectations that are beyond what we are able to do.
