    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits with paid time off and vacation. Vehicle and tools provided with 8 weeks of paid training.

    Cons

    Steep learning curve with multiple platforms to learn with little or no help from management. Management styles differ radically from team to team.

    Advice to Management

    Not all jobs fit into time frames.

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

    Pros

    Many lower managers are good people. Hours are steady and plentiful.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about the workers. The call center where I worked had a toxic environment that was made worse by incomplete training and restrictive time off policies.

    Advice to Management

    Place more value on the front line employees. It's a hard job with a lot of stress and pressure from above makes the environment toxic.

    Pros

    Good pay, easy money, a lot of down time, good benefits

    Cons

    Managers will tell you to do sketchy things then not back you up when you get caught, didn’t pay me for my vacation after I left, work random hours and random days off,

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to run your store without ruining people’s careers

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits. If you like working alone and/or outdoors, you will get plenty of it here.

    Cons

    The company claims that employee safety is a top priority, but all that really means is that they don't want to pay out an insurance claim because of you. You're constantly under a microscope from management and it feels like, from day one, there's a case being built against you so they can fire you. You are randomly given a number of jobs at the beginning of the day, but there is no rhyme or reason as to what they give you, so it could potentially take you until midnight to complete your jobs (assuming customers actually still want you to come when their appointment window passed hours ago). Bringing any of this up to management gets you nowhere. There's constantly equipment shortages and you will often have to leave in the middle of a job to drive across town to pick up whatever you need. Supply orders are constantly weeks behind. I personally was less stressed when I was in the military than I am at this job. It's just not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Start actually caring about your employees instead of just saying you do. Come up with a better system to balance out the work load evenly among employees.

    Pros

    Great hourly and ok commission.

    Cons

    Incentives and pay structure constantly changing, micro managing on every customer interaction, working every weekend and constantly pushing to sell direct tv that is a dying service. Feel you work 60 hour weeks and get payed for 40. Don’t get me started on the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job more fulfilling. Not every customer is a DTV Sale. We are a sales store not a problem solving store.

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

    Pros

    Commissions are better than most wireless companies.

    Cons

    I was sexually harrassed repeatedly. I finally built up the courage to say something a couple of years after I left company. The investigator from AT&T said nothing could be done because I needed witnesses. I'm still in therapy because of the hell I endured.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and BELIEVE your employees.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Pros include Benefits including health, dental, vision, vacation, decent Pay, Tuition Reimbursement, professional growth, fun atmosphere most of the time.

    Cons

    The most important con for me was the poor advancement opportunity in local area for retail employees. There was basically one track and only two promotions before making out without having to relocate.

    Pros

    Pay is great, customer interaction can be fun

    Cons

    Worst company to work for ever. They would go as far as to convince you to commit self-harm if it meant you didn't work there while not hitting sales numbers

    Advice to Management

    Be better people
