    Good for newly grads to get their feet wet

    I worked at TRG Field Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At the time it appeared positioned to do good things

    Cons

    Became very apparent that the company division was used as either a project or a write off. Those that were leading the company when I arrived were forced out of the business by corporate, who installed an individual who had absolutely no interest in seeing the organization succeed.

    Advice to Management

    I actually don't believe that the company still exists, but if it does I would be shocked. While the original President of the division wasn't very consistent in a long term vision or plan, when it came down to it, he cared for those in his employ and sacrificed a lot of his own cash to keep the business running. After he was removed, it became very apparent that the executive in charge was going to flush the whole company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retention rather than expansion

    Pros

    When I started, it was actually a decent job. We had decent promotions to work with; a base salary; a boss who actually did a decent job; pay was acceptable; a decent sales team. However, all that changed very quickly.. see cons.

    Cons

    100% Commission; door to door sales; no gas or cell compensation; incredibly high turnover; lack of management; payroll flaws common; mandatory 6 day work weeks; selling FiOS with promotions which are not nearly as good as whats offered online; Verizon customer service sucks; unable to place orders occasionally b/c of call center and 'spot' device issues; given crappy leads; etc.

    Advice to Management

    Some base salary is needed to attract talent to door-to-door sales. Also, having no gas or cell compensation is unethical. Make 6 day work weeks optional; make Verizon give D2D reps better promos and better leads; pay reps for upgrades and credit drops (where a rep would have made the sale had Verizon not required a $400 deposit), rely less on D2D and set up apartment events and mall kiosks, and make sure skilled salesmen make good money.
