"AT&T is the worst company I ever worked for. Good concepts but horrible plant issues. Over the top enforcement of rules. My biggest issue was I didn't believe in the product, how can you compete with cable companies using the same lines that were put in when AT&T first came to Houston. U Verse is no good."

"The overall job with dealing with customers and the technology is EXCELLENT! The problem with the company is the lack of caring they have for their employees. They constantly look for something to discipline you for and write you up. 90% of the people who I worked for experienced anxiety, stress, depression, sleep disorders, and were in constant fear of losing their jobs. This is not good for morale or motivation. Also the company is divided into management and union workers."

"ATT is a fantastic company to work for. The premise tech position is slave for hire work. The hours to get the Uverse system installed are too long and cumbersome. The pay and hours do not equate and therefore you work massive hours of overtime just to balance a livable income."

"This is NOT your father's AT&T. U-verse is managed by child minded people who think that having a 40% turnover rate of Premise Technicians, to reach their numbers, to receive better bonuses is good management. It doesn't take a genius to see that doing the same thing every month and expecting change is simply insanity, but like I said they are child minded."

What do you like about working at AT&T?

"It's a job. I collect a paycheck and there are benefits."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"This is a job, not a career. Use it as a stepping stone until something better comes along."

What don't you like about working at AT&T?

"Everything an employee does is somehow calculated and graded. How long your truck idles, how long you are on a job, how many jobs you completed vs. jobs returned. Often you are dispatched on jobs that are not ready to be installed, and those jobs need to be returned in the system. However, returning a job goes against your dispatch efficiency which you are expected to maintain at a certain percentage. Some managers are not familiar with the work the technicians are doing and make unreasonable or asinine requests of the technicians. AT&T has a system (MSOC) that they feel is infallible. The system measures every job the same way (according to the services being installed), and does not allow for the uniqueness of each job. A 3-box install in a 2-bedroom apartment is a lot different than a 3-box install in a 5000 square foot home. As a technician, you still get the same amount of time to do both."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would really focus on the customers instead of the shareholders. I would talk to and have a working relationship with the hourly employees. Find out what they are experiencing and what they are hearing from the customers. I would hire managers from within the company - managers who have experience performing the jobs of the employees they will be managing. Get rid of the bean counters who think that everything can be measured by numbers. Listen to the technicians in the field. Hire trainers that have actually done the job that they are training technicians to do. Quality, quality, quality."

"This company was not for me,"

What do you like about working at AT&T?

"I seen what it was like to work in another culture."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you leave your self respect at home, and do what your boss tells you to do, you should be fine."

What don't you like about working at AT&T?

"There corporate culture, and macro management style. I believe they could treat their employees a little better."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Their management does what they are told, they don't make policy, they just enforce it."
