Affiliate-Engineer (Current Employee), Muntinlupa, Philippines – September 12, 2013
Verizon is a good working environment where I learned how to deal people with different culture and personalities. Aside from the technical and management training provided by company, health benefits is also a plus.
Receptionist (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – February 20, 2013
Pros: had big place for dinning and rest area
Verizon wireless, was great place to work in with friendly staff members. It was very busy with more than 10 telephone lines and over 100 employees. I learnt to multi-task and be accurate at the same time. The hardest part of the job as receptionist was to memorize names for over 100 people. I enjoyed the multicultural and non- judgemental environment.
Good pay and culture, my managers were outstanding. Not so great work life balance. Commissions tempt you to be dishonest with customers. Can still make good money and be honest though. Alot of politics involved in advancement.
Construction Splicer (Former Employee), Garland, TX – August 27, 2014
Pros: great benefits and pay
Cons: outside weather conditions and lay-offs
Construction splicer that mostly spliced fiber optic cables. I learned how to splice copper and fiber cables plus test those cable. Management and our group of splicers were a close group. the hardest part of the job was working out in the weather conditions. I enjoyed the job because there was no supervisor standing over your shoulder. You were given – more... an assignment and you had to be responsible enough to complete the assignment on time and correctly – less
Aspect of job was great but due to inconsistant direction and instructions given to employees , makes the company a hard place to work for.
Customer support / Technical Coordinator (Former Employee), Rochester, NY – August 26, 2014
Pros: good pay and benefits
Cons: inconsistant direction and instructions given to employees which causes confusion and stress.
taking calls to assist wireless phone customers is resolving device issues. I learned that no matter how small an issue is in the scope of what could be wrong, the matter is of great importance to the customer and needs to be resolved. management in most cases , co-workers felt needed more training. co-workers were just trying to make it through another – more... day due to the feeling of lack of support. there was at least to me no hard part to the job. – less
Credit Specialist (Former Employee), Trenton, NJ – August 26, 2014
Pros: fun, productive and friendly environment!
Working at Verizon was very productive and fun. You were treated more like family than employee and manager. There was always training to better our communication but also fun activities such as health fairs, Diversity day or Appreciation day. Working at Verizon really built my skills to become a better worker and a better person overall. Best place – more... to work! – less
Solutions Manager (Current Employee), Frederick, MD – August 25, 2014
Pros: benefits, good pay, tuition assistance, training.
Cons: unstability and job security
under the mercy of your DM to move you to other locations as anywhere in the zone and as many times as he/she wants. the stress and the pressure covers the eyes of what you have done before. sometimes you have to fight for the role that you want. Verizon wireless is a great company and has to different routes to proceed with your career. people who – more... work there makes it undesirable. – less
