Work for sales is grueling. I was management and was told by district manager to always have someone on a write up even if everyone was performing or else i would be written up. They force you to sell things to customers that don’t want it. Customers then complain and they take the customers side. Beware if you are a customer don’t buy anything that you didn’t come in for. They will pressure the heck out of you to get you to buy more than you need. Customers use profanity and sometimes racist remakes, was told by leadership that if they didn’t allow it, we would have no more customers.

Took a buyout package which was decent but misleading. Some days I would’ve left for $50 and a handshake. Most boring and repetitive job I ever had! Worked in a call center. Customer Service Agents we’re commonly seen leaving in tears!

Was Pushed to Frontier Communications to assist with their management operations as part of the 2016 aquisition..and it was a quick downward spiral after that. I would go back to Verizon if they asked me to.

They get you to leave, some stores in Pittsburgh are dead locations, so all you pretty much do all day is clean. When you do get a customer, a manager stays within earshot to make sure you are pitching everything they have to offer. Even when you try 2 or 3 times and the customer starts to get mad at you, you get a " coaching " - a write up from your friendly manager that goes to the district manager. After awhile, you get aggravated at this and end up leaving.

Loved my job at Verizon. Was laid off after being employed for ten years for down sizing reasons. Stay away. No job security. Employees now have a greater work load and will have to worry from year to year if they will have a job. Very little or no yearly pay raises.

Laid off not because of lack of work, but because the company wanted to show more profit and cut costs. The people I left behind are now going to do more work for the same pay.

The stress, double standards, constant pressure & lack of management support (in spite of reassurance to the contrary), trashed my health. RUN AWAY!!
