Good manager

All my coworkers were easy to work with and were willing to help you succeed. I wish I had more projects to work on but it was a good learning experience overall.

Good culture and benefits, but you have to have thick skin.

Very stressful at times, but it can be very worth it. It's a good starting point, but moving up is hard even as a consistent top performer for years. Maybe look into sales first.

Working in the the Retention Dept was the worst job EVER!

Cox is constantly hiring Retention agents because the turnover in this position is so high. The customers are abusive and are allowed to yell and use profanity. If the customer yells and uses profanity and hangs up, you are required to call them back. Management is not supportive. A manager told me that anyone that has morals or values will not last long. It is such a horrible environment that agents will just get up and walk out the door and management doesn’t care because there will be another training class starting. The classes start with about 30 agents and within 6 months to a year, you will either be on a final notice or so burnt out that you will resign.


Decent benefits


Horrible morale, unsupportive managers, abusive customers.

Lots of nice people, poorly run company.

Great benefits, management is so nice the fail to hold employees accountable. Leads to unprofessionalism, unreliable employees. Neoptism rampant, little room for growth. Massively unqualified managers and directors. Stick it out as long as you can, have them pay for educational expenses then move on.

Great company to work for.

Small group of employees in this department. Very diverse, great pay, great manager. The most enjoyable part is the co workers, the hardest part is the training. This job is constantly evolving and you are learning something new every day.


Job security


Very hectic and busy all the time.

Understanding, compromising, and loyal.

Cox Is a great place to work. The leadership has always made it a point to listen to the employees and make actionable changes for the better. Our metrics are always being reevaluated to ensure they align with our goals as a company, and what is seen as fair and attainable for the employees. Pay gets reevaluated to ensure fair market wage. Vacation time is more than fair, quartleu bonuses, yearly annual evaluations and raises. Sick time. Holiday pay. Extra bonuses through a rewards provider. Opportunity to be promoted in any position you want. Great culture and amazing benefits. 401k and almost immediate vesting. We even have fertility benefits that are 100 percent covered. Run to fill out an application, and don’t give up until you get hired here.

Stressful but Supportive

Yes back to back calls are stressful, especially after we were all sent to WFH and everyone calling in was frustrated but my management team was super supportive and even provided information on how to get additional support outside of work. They encouraged using PTO when it was available, if you needed it. Mental health was very important, at least with my experience.

No opportunities for advancement

Yes they offer good benefits, but that's about it. Instead what they really offer you is nonstop back to back calls with frustrated and angry customers who have already spent 20 minutes trying to communicate with an outsource partner in the Philippines before they are dropped off to your phone queue with no explanation of what happens for the previous 20 minutes. They have been trying to promote growth and career advancement, but refuse to provide employees the direction and support they may need to advance and better support the company to grow.They reward bad behavior frequently with commission based sales. This leads to 90 yrold grandparents with the gigabyte internet speeds and unlimited data package who may only utilize 40 gigs a month of thier home internet. Cox states they want employees to succeed but only showcase those employees who start from outside the company, and typically only promote those who are able to manipulate the metrics in their favor by lying to customers or actively participate in deceiving customers in order to boost profits.

Fun Workplace

Great place to work. It was fun and challenging. I graduated and had to resign to pursue my medical career. I loved the team work. The store I worked in always had some contest going and treated us like we were people not just some disposable asset.

Great company

Worked for 15 years , cox was on top of benefits and pay . Great place to work. Sometimes working on the phone can be stressful for sure . It does balance out in the long run .

Client Executive

Toxic management in professional sales that is making everyone look for employment elsewhere. Deceptive hiring and recruiting practices and you will not last long here as they are falling completely apart. They are writing people up nonstop so smart people quit and move on. Saves on unemployment and severence along with not doing major layoffs.


Benefits and commission ramp up pay when you first start.


Brutal workplace environment essentially run like an old school telemarketing company.

Used to be a great place but...

I was a 20+ year employee and enjoyed most of my time with the company. When the last Cox daughter passed away, "family run" was buried with her. The current leadership is destroying the company and most field employees are miserable. Very sad that a once loved company is sliding down hill fast.

Apply with caution

Not the greatest place to work. Hours change without you being notified and pay decreases without any warning. Management is awful and inconsiderate.

Collaborative and teamwork focused

A great place to work that supports employees and customers. Very collaborative and team-oriented, the company values the voice of the employee and makes changes accordingly.

Focused only on $$$

New president means layoffs for folks. They used to be focused on employees , like family. Not any more. They continue to do layoffs and just don’t care anymore.
