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

Pros

Good Pay and that is about it.

Cons

They suck the life out of you! No time for friends or family. I was hired on as a part-time employee and I worked on average 40 to 65 hour weeks the whole 6 months I worked there. They would schedule me less than that, but they would tell me i had to work extra shifts because they were so short handed...needs of the business..etc.You typically do not get a break and if you do it's within an hour of your shift being over. I got physically ill from not being allowed to hydrate myself and go to the bathroom on 2 ocassions.Managers micro manage all the time. Expect to be followed around all the time with your manager/assistant manager asking you "what are you doing?" "Why are you doing that?" "Do you think you could have handled that customer differently?". I literally mean all of the time. If I didn't reccomend an ipad, home phone, or mifi device to every single customer I helped (including customers that came in just to pay a bill, apply a discount to their account, or inquire about when the next iphone launch would be) I would get a "strike" and after 3 strikes they fire you. Which is complete BS considering the strikes never fall off!

Advice to Management

Give your employees a chance to sell things without you standing over their shoulders all the d*mn time.

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

    Pros

    High hourly start, depending what store your at it could be very laid back. Managers are down to earth and extremely cool.

    Cons

    Its a sales job, there are more quotas that you have to meet besides selling cell phones, can be really stressful at times

    Advice to Management

    Great Job guys
