Pros

Security, Company Support, Benefits, Vacation and Family time, Opportunity, constant change, always at the forefront of its industry

Cons

retail hours, multiple weekends, high quotas make it hard to make extra commission, need to do your research about market share before taking a mgmt position to establish the extra $$$ that you can get, held accountable for metrics that you don't have a lot of control over

Advice to ManagementAdvice

do research about location, market share, be prepared to be held accountable but w/ little control, but ultra rewarding if successful

    Pros

    Amazing training program
    Good corporate culture
    Never see the same thing twice
    A great place to learn to build lasting realtionships with your customers.

    Cons

    The toughest part of working for verizon is major change taking place all the time. Goals change, jobs change, and comission rates change. You have to be open to change or you won't be happy and won't last with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If at all possible, Think about how you approach your employees. You can seem alittle out of touch to what we deal with in cusotmer facing positions. Make sure that your stores have the items they need to sell.

    Pros

    The best part of working for Verizon Wireless is the benefits. Dental, health insurance are some of the best available. The company also has a 6% match in the 401 K plan in addition to profit sharing.

    Cons

    Verizon is a pay for performance company, there are times when it is difficult to balance the needs of the company and the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To increase the use of my Verizon for orders, it may be worth considering basing part of the management compensation by the number of either new or upgrade accounts in a given area times the percentage of my Verizon utilization in the Retail Store.
