Video game in lunch room
Broadband Technical Specialist (Former Employee), Worcester, MAJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: provided lunch on special days
Cons: poor life/work balance
I enjoyed the people who worked there. Everyone was polite and concerned with your well being. Co-workers willing to help or answer questions when management was unavailable. Typical work day was answering calls and trying to resolve customer issues.

Cable technician (Former Employee), lake mary FloridaDecember 30, 2013
Pros: great environment, nice people
Cons: stuck in 1 position
In a nutshell I was led to believe that I would have a great opportunity and I would be able to move around in the company just to find out that once I was in 1 job it was very hard to get out.

Ok Place to work
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Simpsonville, SCSeptember 4, 2013
Pros: healthcare
Cons: they just dont care
I use to love the company until it change to a new managment, Charter use to be a place where you enjoyed coming to work. Now the managment look at you as a number, he even made the comment they do bu they dont care about the employees. Not saying everyone should be best friends but how can you expect your employees to do for you when you dont care – more... about them. I had an employee who's husband had a stroke and they wanted her to come to work the next day. – less

Fun workplace
Bus Driver (Current Employee), Vails Gate, NYMarch 31, 2013
Pros: off duty from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm

the typical day starts at 6:00 am inspect the bus for safety reasons and start picking up students for school.
No employee Unity, most vehicles are old and unreliable, the most enjoyable part of the job is not being there all day.

Be careful of Charter Communications
Regional Construction Manager (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIFebruary 8, 2013
I worked for Charter Communications and was in middle management for over 22 years. I was downsized by them and I was told that I could always apply to get back in the company . I have applied for over a dozen jobs including this one. I have the experience and qualifications to do the job but I feel that my age is why they will not call me for a interview – more... or hire me. – less

YOURE BETTER OFF WITHOUT A JOB
Direct Sales/Outside Sales/Door to Door Sales (Former Employee), Reno, NVJanuary 29, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: everything other than benefits
Outside sales is absolutely horrendous for this company. There was a schedule of Tuesday thru Saturday 11am-8pm and a new director came into town just to make the schedule 6 days a week Monday-Saturday still working until 8pm each night. They preach a family lifestyle but I saw my family for maybe an hour a day before it was time for bed. As a door – more... to door job there needs to be motivation of some sort and there was absolutely NONE from immediate supervisors to their supervisors and beyond. There is absolutely no camaraderie anymore because supervisors discourage each rep away from communicating with each other. Benefits were pretty decent and this is the only thing that will be missed about working for this company. they will tell you potential of 6 figure incomes a year and you will NEVER see that...you will be making minimum wage with a very rare chance at earning a monthly commission check. The company is going south and at a rapid pace and as a former employee that has friends still employed with Charter, they have more people about to leave the company because of the overwhelming negative values that Charter possesses. I WARN EVERYONE!!! – less

Karyn – February 5, 2013

My husband did the same job. Not only horrible, inflexible hours; they expect you out there whether it's 120 degrees or 20 degrees pouring rain! The people at the doors think very lowly of a company sending people out in that and especially when the cold, wet wind is howling at their front door! Ridiculous, greedy top management. Benefits don't balance out that kind of work environment! Beware indeed!

Great benefits, but that's it.
Video Tech (Former Employee), NebraskaNovember 16, 2012
Pros: free/discounted services
Cons: poor management, no character or integrity.
In 4, close to 5 years of employment, I went through 4 different bosses, each one worse than the last. In the time I was employed there I was never advanced past entry level. I was laid off due to "lack of work" because of system consolidation.

Tolerable place to work
Customer sales & Service Center Expert (Current Employee), WIJuly 19, 2012
Pros: some complimentary services
Cons: kept lowering commission & in 4 years i went through 3 supervisors
typical day at the front counter consisted of taking payments, customer account management and other office duties
I learned about the telecommunications industry
Management really needs to realize that employees are just as important as customers
Drama with other co-workers
Hardest part of the job was being told I can go back to school to better myself – more... with Charter, but yet they wouldnt give me time away from work 2-3 hours/ wk to go to the classes
most enjoyable part of the job: free cable – less
