Addictively Fun Environment, But Not An Easy Job
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) – USA – June 11, 2018
The people and culture are fantastic. The pay is average or unpredictable. Verizon calls the shots (and they call them A LOT), with constantly changing goals, metrics, and confounding ways to earn your pay.
The leadership team of Russell Cellular (not Verizon) is one of the best teams you could ever hope to work with, but the job is not glorious in any way.
You deal with irate people who are mad at Verizon's infamously poor treatment of their customers, but they blame YOU. You are under constant pressure to hit moving sales targets that are always directed at the poorest performing categories. You have to work holidays and weekends.
If none of that bothers you, or if it's worth it for a great team and culture, then you should apply there.
If you are a DSM, then you are responsible for all of that times the number of stores you oversee, and you have to travel all the time and will never have a moment's rest while watching your team's numbers. But you get a company car. That's worth something, right?
Company truly recognizes talent and has a great culture.
Unfortunately, Verizon ultimately calls the shots. Long hours, low-to-average pay at max, never-ending pressure.
