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

Pros

Great training program; excellent trainers; excellent compensation for the amount of responsibility.

Cons

Store Management is often inexperienced; Company does not truly value its customers, and therefore its employees. New products are launched and are then employees are encouraged to sale those products regardless of whether clients need them or not. "Just sell it and see if it sticks," is a motto; it helps hit the monthly quotas for yourself and the store, but the client returns the product/service and you are charged back the commission you made. That is fair; what isn't fair is that the focus should have been on if the client needed the product/service or not first.
First 6 months are usually excellent. "New Hire Fire" is the term that is used; after the initial 6 months you realize that it isn't about helping others as much as selling what is vogue.

    I worked at AT&T as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of learning resources. Teamwork and collaboration to meet project requirements encouraged. Benefits equate to many permanent jobs.

    Cons

    Can be hard to reach upper management, since they are always on trips or on call. Definitely feel like a small cog in a giant machine.


  2. "Good pay good schedule"
