    I worked at hmv full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Verizon excels at providing opportunities to learn and grow. They provide an excellent compensation program with great benefits.

    Cons

    At the time of my RIF (Reduction in Force), there were no positions available here in Tampa. As I had no desire to relocate, I had to accept the layoff.

    Advice to Management

    I desire a position that test my skills, makes my think outside the box and provides a path for promotion. I desire that the company that employs me is as flexible to my needs as they expect me to be to their needs. I want to be part of a team that want to do more than what is required.
