I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Fun and exciting technology to sell to customers. Commissioned structure allows for extra earnings potential.

Cons

long, unpredictable hours. Sales reps required to perform technical support functions, limiting numbers of sales opportunities per day. Many sub-par managers that do not think for themselves and only relay messages of upper-mgmt.

Advice to Management

upper management needs to have more front-line experience to really know what is going on in the stores.

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company offers an amazing discount on services. The benefit package offered was really nice too. I will miss those two things only.

    Cons

    Sales quotas were too high and the amount you could make for commission kept getting lower and lower. This created a lot of hostility between employees that were trying to maintain their standard of living.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to coach your employees in a style that suits them instead of taking a cookie-cutter approach.
