Pros

Great pay, great people, great service. The management structure of stores is the most professional in the retail field. The tools given to us are phenomenal! I can stand behind my product and company and truly say I am behind Verizon wireless.

Cons

Lots of hours, asked for perfection, constantly bugged from management about performance. It is a very stressful job.

Advice to Management

I am proud to work for an amazing company! I might suggest flattening the management tiers and possibly restructure locations and sales compensation to merge with the companies goals.

    Pros

    Verizon Wireless has good benefits

    Cons

    Its very hard to move up in the company

    Advice to Management

    Sales should be focus but should not be pressure to the retail levels where management gets threaten to do things which can cost them on their carrier path. Specially for the entry level management individual s.

    Pros

    The company phone and discount on your personal cell account. They do give you training before you start working in the store, although it is very basic sales and if you have been in any basic business college courses you will be bored to tears by the end of the week. Like all big companies they spend a great deal of money on training their employees even if they realize that they will be gone in 6 months. If you like dealing with people on a daily basis then this is a good position for you but it may also make you somewhat burnt out when it comes to dealing with the public.

    Cons

    Hours, high turnover, ethical issues, shady salespeople. The company is run to make money and they seem to keep getting more greedy and care less and less for their employees. If you work hard and beat your quota they will just raise your quota the next month, then if you have a lean month they will write you up for not hitting your numbers. The company is not run well in the lower levels of management and the turnover rate is very high. I was in college at the time and they had told me before I accepted the positon that they would be flexiable with my schedule, simply untrue.

    Advice to Management

    take an honest look at yourself and see how you treat the frontline workers
