Working at Alltel

  • Rach T in Youngstown, Ohio 64 months ago
    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at ALLTEL? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at ALLTEL?

    What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable? How does ALLTEL stack up against the competition?

    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 ALLTEL? Any advice on striking the right note?

    What is the interview process like with Alltel? I had a phone interview and a in person interview. They informed me that I will be going to the next step. What is the next step?

    I worked for Alltel for almost a year in the Phoenix call center, till I moved back to Europe. I had the best boss and co workers anyone can imagine. When I first got to Alltel I was not sure that this was the company for me. But after going through training and learning more about the company they really impressed me. And it is hard to impress me. I learned that for Alltel the employee comes first. They have wonderful benefits. The people that work at the Phoenix call center are incredibly warm hearted and ready to help when ever you need. I worked in Technical support and we told our boss that sales should not be part of our job and a week later he announced that we no longer will be selling over the phone. This company really amazed me, I'm a single Mom so it was hard for me to be in 2 places at the same time when my kids got sick and the company worked with me so I can make up my hours not to get too many absences. I would have a million ways of telling you how much good Alltel has done for me and how they raised money to help out employees in need, but my comment is getting too long. Thanks for reading.

    Alltel data security was extremely poor (and probably still is) and I should know. I personally would not trust any of my personal data with Alltel since I do not believe that it is safe in their hands. I have personally seen how it is handled. I worked as a Sr. Data Security Analyst for them for two years. Before that I worked for two years as an Alltel data recovery analyst (and business recovery was just as bad). For years, they used a flawed recovery software product that simply would never work in their environment. I was fired the same day I wrote a multi-page internal memo describing 15 major security and recovery problems to upper management (i.e.. CEO Joe Ford, VP Scott Ford and many others). After I was fired, they (an Alltel Division VP and HR Director) contacted me via email to see if I knew of other security problems. I mistakenly decided to show them exactly what I meant concerning these security problems. I logged on to their systems without having an account just to show them it could be done, and I was prosecuted for my efforts. I logged on to my ex data security manager's account because he used ALLTEL as his password. Would you use the name of the company as your password if you were the person that was supposed to be enforcing data security? Additionally, Alltel had an intranet application that would let you reset anybody's password (via an incompetent software program) so I decided to reset Joe and Scott Ford's intranet passwords just so they would be aware that their own flawed software allowed it to happen. You can read about this from the federal government's own press release located at: Of course Alltel would not want you to know that their computers were "hacked" (their words, not mine) but they made the charge that they were "hacked" serveral times over multiple weeks. Apparently Alltel did not have the ability to stop it. Jimmie Rayburn
