I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good training and experience potential working in a rapid paced Verizon Wireless retail location. Opportunities to meet the occasional celebrity, Ralph Macchio, Mick Foley, etc.

Cons

No pay raise or opportunity to advance over the 2 years I worked there. The only way to make more was overtime at other locations.

Advice to Management

give raises to people who deserve it and motivation will return. It's tough to want to work harder when the guy next to you is slacking and making more.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flextronics is a very flexible company with wide range of interesting and challenging jobs. It's pretty easy to get hired and a very good place to start up your carrier.

    Cons

    However as easy to get hired that easy to get fired too.. As soon the company loses a business it starts to fire the employees without delay. Many times they warn employees very late, they get the information about the coming layoffs from the media earlier than from the company.

    Stress is also a main factor, I wouldn't recomment Flextronics to someone with family.

    Advice to Management

    Profit and customer satisfaction is important but the employees are the ones who make a company successful. Flextronics should care about his employees much better. There is a very big place for improvement in culture as well.

    "Wants to have good customer service, but doesn't understand how"

    Pros

    Appears to want to improve customer service, Great lower management

    Cons

    Higher management is very detached, You hear a lot of text-book phrases about improvement and customer service but you quickly realize they are reading from a book and don't understand the underlying principles and qualities that lead to great customer service. Day 1 of training includes a slideshow that says "We are NOT legally required to give you breaks, but we do." That, in itself, shows that they are more concerned with setting the stage for removing breaks than they are with understanding why breaks are important for morale.

    Advice to Management

    Get more in touch with lower levels of employment, understand their daily journey and needs, and higher someone who truly understands the spirit of great customer service and employee relations, not someone who reads from customer service books and uses a lot of clip art.
