the money and benefits were very good; the experience... not so much

I worked at AT&T

Pros

the benefits are outstanding; vacations and PTO were some of the best I have encountered. hourly rate was very much above average. very accommodating to personal/ family needs.

Cons

very stressful; always constant pressure. employees were often pitted against each other in the name of sales. promotions were based on personal relationships, and not on merit. commission structure constantly changing, and becoming increasingly difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop overseas customer service. The biggest complaint from customers has nothing to do with service issues, dropped calls, etc.. it is a constant "I can't get someone who speaks English."

    Pros

    AT & T has a pretty good benefit program and a good amount of paid time off so it allows you to maintain your life outside of work.

    Cons

    AT &T wireless pushes it's supervisors to unrealistic sales goals. Since so many people already have cell phones it's extremely difficult to try and obtain the new activations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your sales team and your entry level hands on management about ways to streamline the process and to create more attainable sales goals.
