I worked at Granite Telecommunications full-time (Less than a year)
Honestly, I loved working at Granite. The position is hard but will be worth it in the long run. Outside circumstances led me to leave but the culture in the WPB Sales office was outstanding, and I enjoyed working with my co-workers. The VP of sales there keeps up the morale, which if you work in sales, you know is crucial. Excellent benefits, perks, and base. Aggressive incentives.
The first few months/year there will be very taxing. Your shift ends at 5 but if you want to get ahead that's not enough. Make sure you're in a place in your life where you you can devote a full first year to eat, sleep, breath Granite.
Advice to Management
Positive reinforcement and encouragement go a long way. When motivating a team focus on the positives instead of the roadblocks and potential pitfalls. Keep up the Lunch and Learns, that was helpful.
I applied online. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Quincy, MA) in August 2017.
I interviewed with 2 people the first lady was very nice and sweet , but the second lady which was one of the managers was very rude i got up to shake her hands . she was doing her own thing i was just standing there awkwardly. She would cut me off as i am answering the questions, she was staring at me trying to intimidate me and would stop saying how hard the job was ( WELL DUH) anyways it was a bad experience and i am glad i was not hired.
