No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Verizon Wireless part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Decent base salary, unique and effective commission structure which makes you profitable and knowledgable simultaneously, industry-leading benefits and tuition assistance (payes up-front!), family-like environment like none other when dealing with commissioned jobs.

Cons

Type A personality or nothing. This is the environment. If you're shy around others and don't do well talking with new people, you will simply be eaten alive by your managers and coworkers first, then your clientele. Chess team captain with no personality gets you promoted from sales rep to customer in a couple of months!

Advice to Management

It should be at the discretion of store management whether or not a small business deal should be transitioned to the B2B sales department. It is unfair that a sales rep should lose half of his new lines simply because the company "doesn't feel like they can handle it". Leave us be.

Quote: "Being a good manager means hiring the right people and then getting out of their way".

Senior management, do us that favor. Much appreciated!
