Retail Sales Representative at Spectrum
in Austin, TX

"I really liked the fact of being able to work with the general public, meeting new and different people every day, and being able to offer them cable, internet, home phone and home security services based on their needs, made me feel really good. I only hated that I was used to the old compensation plan, and then it changed drastically. Made me very unhappy."

Retail Sales Representative at Verizon Wireless
in Saratoga Springs, NY

What do you like about working at Verizon Wireless?

"I like the new technology, decent compensation, team atmosphere, and the entry level positions available."

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

"If you are looking for a job that constantly challenges you every day with something new, go for it. Be prepared for crazy levels of stress mostly from being micromanaged (all dependent on your manager). Burnout rate is extremely high for this position, so take you vacations and personal days when given to you, and do not let them build up. If you take a position with Verizon Wireless that is commission-based, make sure you plan ahead, as some months are great and others you will be scraping for numbers, as expected commission is estimated based on what was done last year and on new products launching."

What don't you like about working at Verizon Wireless?

"Management within Verizon Wireless has a trickle-down effect. Every manager at Verizon Wireless is looking to get promoted to the next level, so they take whatever they hear from the next level up and exaggerate the goals to make them look better, and for the most part they succeed. The problem is, once it gets to the store level which is front-facing to our customers, the goals set forth are almost impossible."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Make one policy and stick with it for each different sector of the company. There are too many different systems and policies for customer service retail and tech support."
