Pros

Verizon is a great place and company to work for. The benefits are hard to beat and they even have a tuition reimbursement program. As a sales rep your earnings are only limited by how hard you want to work. Senior Management does a good job of disseminating needed information and expressing the company values and culture.

Cons

Because it is retail there is a high turn over rate. In those 2 years we went through several store level management changes so it was hard to develop a good team based work environment. At times a work life balance was hard to obtain even though it was much needed.

Advice to Management

Senior Management is doing a good job however I feel they need to train store level management to connect to employees better.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great. Hours are not bad to work, get paid vacations, holidays off.

    Cons

    All about numbers, if you don't put out the numbers you will get nowhere. No non sales jobs left, makes for a bad experience when no one is left to help customers and only people driven to sell. Close is never good enough, and goals are set so only the pushy can reach them. And then they Change every month so every month same performance leads to different results

    Advice to Management

    Seems like all the customer service is leaving Verizon and there are no positions to advance if your not a pushy sales person. Seems like there is no room for customer service driven people
