Will dress pants with a tucked-shirt and Sperrys be fine?...or should I wear a full-blown suit and tie?

First off, this position is not for anyone that has a family or by any means a LIFE!!! The hours they schedule for you give you no morning and no evening. It's not an 8-5 position, where you would at least have an evening off to be with family or friends. The hours are more like 9:30am - 8:30pm. And don't expect to be out on time. When would you see your kids with hours like that? Unless your high on the seniority level, you will be working every Saturday and Sunday, open to close. With meetings before work on Saturdays. I cannot stress enough how if you have a family...you will never see them. You will never see your kids play sports. AT&T sucks the life out of you.
Second, if you need a day off...say you need Aug 31st off, They need to know that by July 3rd or you will not be granted that day off. And you would not even know if you have that day off until Aug 1st. How are you suppose to make vacation plans? Once again, AT&T sucks the life out of you.
Third, expect to be followed around by managers every time your with a customer to make sure your saying and showing them the things they want you to sell. Don't forget to shake their hand when they are leaving (even if they are sick) and walk them to the door or you will be written up.
Fourth, trying to take a lunch is like pulling teeth. You could be walking out the door for lunch and a customer walks in and they ask you to take care of them before you leave. Well, that customer could take up an 1 1/2 hrs of your time.
Fifth, They are always raising your quota so you don't make any money. I could go on and on but I think this pretty much sums it up.

I have been in the hiring process with AT&T for quite some time now. I've already done all of the testing and all of that stuff, and after over a month of waiting I did the phone interview and face to face interview. Now Hireright is having problems verifying my employment dates with one of my former employers. Has this happened to anyone else?

Do you guys think I will be hired? I had my interview with the hiring manager exactly 2 weeks ago. They told me that I would be contacted no matter the outcome. I have sent her an email thanking her for the opportunity and wondering how the process was going. I still have not heard anything from At&t. I did sign on to see how my application process was going and saw that the position has been filled. I have not heard anything. Did she lie to me when she said she would contact me? I thought the interview went rather well.
Thanks guys and cheers!

First, I have to say that AT&T is a very big company, employing more than 330,000 people worldwide. If you understand this then you can probably understand why the hiring process is extremely selective and lengthy. My first advice to anyone wishing to be hired: be very patient and don't rush to any conclusions.
A friend of mine, who works for an AT&T retail store in another city gave me his ATTUID to list him as a reference for AT&T job applications. He informed me that AT&T retail does a lot of hiring in March-April, so I jumped full-speed applying for every retail store "sales' position, and every time AT&T sent me (via email) new job openings I always responded and applied very quickly.
The second week of March, I finally got a phone call from an AT&T recruiter and was scheduled for an interview immediately. I went in on a Monday (March 11th) and interviewed. The interview was an hour long. It consisted of scenario questions: "...tell me about a time you had to overcome several "no" answers before making a sale to a difficult customer." I answered about a half dozen of these scenario-based questions. Mind you, the store manager who interviewed me was SHARP and at the top of his game! He went through the presentation of the company word-for-word like a machine, without skipping a beat. I got through the interview and felt I did well.
A week later I interviewed with a store manager, and completed a second - and shorter interview. I was offered a position three days later, conditional on passing the background check. The background check took 6 days total, and I just found out that I passed. My recruiter called, congratulated me and said, "Welcome Aboard AT&T!" Training begins in May.
Be patient! Have your answers ready for interviews. Be prepared to answer questions about your background. HireRight is thorough!

Does AT&T really require applicants to give their social security number to third party recruiters in order to be considered for a contract position?
And why do the AT&T web sites suck so badly? The only contact information I can find is for sales and service, they seem to try hide their corporate contact information at all costs. What are they ashamed of, or trying to hide?
Can it be that they are ashamed of the fact that they can't mange their own telephones in their CORPORATE OFFICES!? I finally managed to dig up a telephone number for their corporate office and tried to call them to verify their hiring practices (to see if they really were so scummy that they required a SSN to be given to third party recruiters) and they disconnected me five times out of seven calls, and the other two I got dumped to a recording that didn't have anything to do with the reason I called . . . then at the end of the message, I got disconnected.
Why can't AT&T manage their own phones? And if they do such a lousy job of communicating with the public, why would anybody want to do business with them, or work with them?

It's always hard to know what to expect when going in for that interview -- and preparation can make all the difference. What is the interview process like at AT&T?
Any advice on striking the right note?

Hi I'm in central Missouri and provided I get the job offer I will be training soon. I need to know where I -could- be training in order to prepare my home life for me being away. I've been reading up on the forums and I know previously it was 2 weeks at a training facility then a week in local store then a week back at the training facility. What is it like now? Any idea where I would likely go being from Mid-Missouri? I'm just worried 48hrs will not be a big enough window to make the necessary arrangements and really do not want to have to say no to a training date. TIA

I have a good background in cable/satellite experience. I was wondering what does that mean. ?? They gonna contact me in a few days to interview me and offer a job or does it mean they are not interested in me. I haven't gotten no emails yet from them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
