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

Pros

Pay scale
transferability
3 weeks paid vacation
company expense card

Cons

quota system
inferior product in a dying market

Advice to Management

change the quota system to account for people in smaller markets having to sell more than people in bigger markets. i was in a VERY small market where the quota is based on the dollar amount you brought in and not how many contracts you get signed. Because my market is small the prices for advertising is on average 33% of the price of larger markets. that means that i had to sell 3x the products of someone in a larger market. i was only able to have 1 good month where i got 15 contracts signed which is 3 months worth of contracts anywhere except my market.

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

    Pros

    There is a Union that negotiates fair benefits, 401K, Health, and even Pension!!

    Cons

    This is a dog eat dog company, cut throat, crabs in a bucket, everyone is reaching to move up in the company, and family "baby bells" run the company's lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    Calls Center should not be all one race...

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good starting salary depends on your exp and education. OT is a BIG plus and if you have a good store manager it can help you grow big time.

    Cons

    Forget about having weekends off. If can be difficult balancing personal/work life.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to give some of these guys that have been Sales Reps for a while. These guys are hungry to prove others on what they can do as sales managers. Please stop hiring college students why no experience about the industry or sales.
