    I have been working at Alltel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Alltel at it's peak was disruptive to the cell phone industry. It's leadership was composed of inspirational and driven people who always were looking to fight the major carriers. We had a mission every day and when we achieved it, it was very rewarding.

    Cons

    As with any smaller companies, moving is almost a must in order to promote.

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

    Pros

    Excellent monetary compensation, minimal stress as completion of job requirements are sufficiently within reach. Liked my work with job satisfaction through assisting customers.

    Cons

    I worked in a particularly low traffic store, uneventful days would drag on and yet I was still to keep busy. However management and coworkers were understanding and we used the time effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Associates such as myself were much better suited in a management or technical assistance position, I was consistently helping other associates in many other locations with technical issues, so much so that the majority of my day became helping other associates in many different regional stores with issues. There should be a position for this type of assistance. Everyone benefited from my knowledge and experience.
