Opportunity to make good money with minimal qualifications
Great benefits with up to 6% 401k matching

Everything is political but hey, that's Corporate America

Advice to Management

Research before making decisions and initiating major initiatives. People in the Retail Channel can save the company a lot of money with their feedback.

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

    Pros

    co-workers, new technology, something new everyday

    Cons

    all stores and districts are run differently, too much middle management, lack of communication between mgmt levels

    Advice to Management

    All direct stores in regions should be on the same page, have the same "policies" and processes. Have heard certain regions/districts called "Wild Wild West" as the company focus, rules are not followed, instead a local manager wants things their own way. More communication between levels of management or elimination of middle mgmt posiitions are needed to tighten up the business.
