    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and co workers

    Cons

    Very uptight about scorecard and following 5 principles. When I started working there the environment was fun. It helped with the job. The longer I worked there the fun went away. Management was very critical of what you did not do in a call. Hours became worse and shifts change every 6 months. Sometimes there would be a surprise shift change. The shifts became to where you could have two days off if you opened or closed the center. If you had a shift in the middle of the day, your days off were split. Management changed to where they use to work with you if a family situation or any situation came up to where they made accommodation one time. If anything else came up they pasted it on to their manager to decide. As of with the job, pressure to be within a 16min call was unrealistic with some customers. Some customers needed extra help and a lot of the time we were suggested to push them to a store or self service. At times the stores would push customers back to us which resulted in bad surveys.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits including half off service, discounted DirecTV, tuition...good coworkers

    Cons

    Awful schedules, flavor of the month goals, rated by surveys that don't reflect how good you are at your job

    Advice to Management

    Good environment leads to good behaviors, which drives performance. Numbers don't drive behaviors, other way around...

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best jobs I had after serving in the military was working as a tech support rep! Helping people solve issues with devices and being rewarded for going above and beyond. I had some amazing bosses who were like cheerleaders for their teams.

    Cons

    The only down side for me was having to bid on working holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job with keeping morale up! I had a blast during my 2 1/2 years!

    Pros

    Nothing. There is no pros

    Cons

    Slave labor. No concern for well being. Watch people fired over family emergencies

    Advice to Management

    Micro managing does not make people want to work for you. Working reps harder so you can get a better schedule is wrong

    Pros

    Compensation and a discount on the phone bill were the only pros to this job

    Cons

    Hours and the customers don't even begin to compare to the management style in which the company has begun to focus. There is a "fire list" in the district from which I was employed

    Advice to Management

    The management could care less about their employees

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are pros at AT&T. You get very good benefits and very very good pay.

    Cons

    There are more cons then pros. Fresh out of training I was picked on. The trainer was all right but unfelt like I didn't know everything I needed to know after training. I learned way more in the floor. I worked long hours and worked Very very hard to learn everything I knew. As soon as I got on the floor the one manager bashed me right away. It continued to happen every night. I'm easy to get along with and am a hard worker. There was a supervisor who picked on me every night and even s harassment towards me. I was abused while on the floor at AT&T. I was threatened to be beat ostracized by others. Not once did my boss do anything to stop it. I don't have the best sounding voice but later found out they were trying to fire me anyway because of my voice. Silly right?? The entire office stood up and called me a re re and made fun of me. I will say I will never recommend this job to anyone. While the pay is good and benefits seem really nice the people and management are truly awful. Don't ever work at this job even if they offer to pay you well. Refuse it. Because at the end of the day if the insane stats don't hurt you the people will. They don't care if you're a hard worker or not. Please please I beg you do not under any circumstances ever work at this shady piece company!! Luckily I found a much better job where I'm treated with respect. So I left before they fired me. For my annoying voice.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps instead of hiring people to dumpster dive and talk trash on people you should hire managers and supervisors who can actually pull people in the office and just fire them. Worst company ever!!!!! Worst management ever!!!! I will never EVER recommend anyone for this awful job.
