Pros: cellphone bill was covered, it was a pay check, and the corporate heads were great people!
Cons: integrity fell short on some of the managers, team leads, and hr people. also, pay rate too low, insurance too high, work to hour to person ratio is off.
There are certain people at this company that really shouldn't be there. One in particular would will actually interrupt you, talk over you, and yell at you that you are wrong, but then turn around and say that you were argumentative. He says he wants to help, but really he means he wants to help you out the door. They say they don't want excessive – more... overtime, but when you stop getting so much overtime, they want to know why the amount of work has gone down and they still accuse you of getting excessive overtime.
Don't get me wrong, I loved working with some of the people in the corporate office, as there were many that did live up to the motto Integrity and Loyalty. But a few select people made you wish they would just call out every day of work. Their constant complaining about aspects of their job, their constant pushing things off on you so they wouldn't have to do it, and their constant negativity just brought everyone down.
When I was a temp working for this company, I busted my butt so they wouldn't have too. Once I got hired on they waited until the day before my benefits started and paid time off that I had earned started before they fired me. In addition the problems you have to put up with, the cattiness of some of the women, the pay isn't that much more than what you would make as a temp working for this company. When I went from Temp to Full-Time I made a quarter raise...a no I don't mean 1/4 more than what I was making before I mean .25 cents more. The benefits are higher priced than what I paid for better insurance plan through Anthem, but with a different company. The only plus side was the ability to have my phone pretty much paid for, only have to pay taxes and insurance.
I was told it was a blessing in disguise that I am no longer with this company and to be honest, I consider this a blessing that I don't have to work with those people anymore. Ntelos is a great company, but if they want to stay in the game there are some changes they need to consider making in order to improve.
1) Do away with people who are not happy with their jobs to the point they are making lies to push competition out the door.
2) Upgrade your insurance package to a better for your employees.
3) Upgrade your Towers...everything is 4G now. – less
