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

    Pros

    - Discount on phone plans
    - You definitely make a lot of friends and are able to network
    - My location had great people and management
    - Uniform allotment given twice a year
    - Union
    - There are opportunities to move up if you're a top seller

    Cons

    - Doesn't value employees overall
    - Too sales driven; lots of "shady" practices
    - Too much outsourcing
    - Disconnect between stores and customer care on the phone

    Advice to Management

    Direct management was great. Upper, upper management doesn't see the bigger picture of making the company steadily grow, rather focuses too much on pleasing shareholders right away.

    I worked at AT&T full-time

    Pros

    None none none none none

    Cons

    Don’t even waste your time applying for this job. I applied for a full time retail position at Seattle, was asked to do a video interview, did a lot of preparation and used almost an hour to throughly answer the questions and got a email after saying so far so good. Then the next day just randomly got a no thank you email.

    Advice to Management

    Probably has no idea what is considered a good employee.
