If the union actually stands against the mandate, you would have droves of stores signing up. Wouldn't this be in their best interest? Well see Oct. 25th with the negotiations.
I still haven't given notice but I plan to leave very soon. A lot of colleagues have already left. Somehow it seems to me that mass exodus didn’t bother them at first. Moreover, I think it worked in their favor. However, now it seems to me... — read more
I have been reading so many posts by the Verizon sales people. It sounds like you have the worst job on the planet. You lose money for bad customer surveys and have to cold call customers to sell them a phone when you got customers in que at the... — read more
I encourage everyone to read up on this subject. The main theme running through the whole process is that it's up to the employer to determine the following: Do they recognize your religion as valid. Is the head of you religion for or... — read more
90 minute wait times and we are asked to make calls while customers stand around the store in our que. Nothing like calling customers from another part of the country to find out why they abandoned their cart order. As the customers signed into our... — read more
Let's make this a movement, Black Friday everyone stay home enjoy your family and let them worry about their sales.... Either way WE ARE NOT GOING TO MEET THE SALES Q AND THAT BONUS CHECK WILL ONLY BE $1200 IF NO BAD SURVEYS DON'T GO TO WORK ON... — read more
Job Application Question - Have you been fully vaccinated against Covid-19? (2 weeks after Pfizer / Moderna or after 1 shot of J&J) Can't say we saw this coming
Northeast mass exodus of retail upper management, has anyone noticed?! We are all supposed to keep smiling and push along while we watch everything implode…
Almost all my colleagues have something on the side. I think a lot of employees have side jobs, (only they don't use their company computer for side jobs). What will never be clear to me is why do employers feel so threatened by side gigs?... — read more
Of course the retail vax mandate isn’t going into effect until after the holiday season. Verizon can’t afford a massive push back and refusal from employees when they can barely staff stores as is. Its obvious the end goal is work us to death during... — read more
Regardless of how you feel about the vax, everyone needs to take a stand together on this topic. If the unvaxed are placed on unpaid leave or terminated, the vaxed will have to pick up the extra workload. Do you think they will actually give you a... — read more
I remember many holiday seasons in this company, but it seems to me that this year's pre-holiday season is the gloomiest. It seems even less optimistic than last year? I plan to give notice soon.
Anyone have any insight as to what the “accommodations” would be for religious or medical exemption? I suspect that it will be WFH customer service.. will they decrease pay if that’s the case? Does indirect have to get the Jab?!
Our door greeter makes around $20-$23/hour. He’s awesome btw. Doesn’t let ANY bs into the store unless it’s a new line or someone trying to spend $$ But some of our reps that have been working for Verizon for a couple years are a little salty... — read more
What are the follow-up forms and what are they requiring once we make our initial selection and hit submit?
If you work in a retail store you already know how help is stretched thin. Reps and managers have been leaving and new hires are slim pickens to fill those slots. What kind of provisions is Verizon making for the next few months for those of us who... — read more
I know at least a few people if not more are quitting soon at hour store due to hours, team commission, rude customers all day etc. Anyone else seeing this? If this happens everywhere it is really going to hurt Verizon right before holiday season
Did you know that Network Assurance Sr. Managers with bonus average about $150.00.00 per year. If your manager is a lazy uninvolved work from home, no technical expertise individual, the time has come to make them pull their weight. Living on... — read more

Just got off a panic call. 6 Texas locations and 5 North Carolina locations will be unionized starting next month!! Upper management is panicking over this. How many more stores will go union??!?! They are apparently spilling the beans in writing... — read more
Work at home employees are being tracked. If you have been doing a side job and double dipping, the powers to be are probably already aware. It's that time of year again and you will not receive a RIF package. Why would they start looking at you?... — read more
Any of you received the quota adjustment for Septembers lack luster numbers?
Verizon and Hans won the pivot award for best covid response... (We shifted store reps to home based jobs) now we should win the Razzie award for worst response to get the stores back up to speed.
They have been very careful with their language. Your job MAY be in jeopardy or your job COULD be in jeopardy. Verizon has not and will not say they WILL TERMINATE you. I wonder why that is? Let's see it in black and white Verizon.
With everything coming down the pipe in all the departments. Staffing cuts to insane lows, additional work load, department consolidations, and additional spending cuts. Anyone feel that Verizon is positioning the company to sell? The current... — read more
Is Verizon going to do anything about increasing pay? With the yearly pay increases of 2 to 3%, we're losing purchasing power each year. Also, who wants to bet that "corporate" and "network" gets another 100%+ STI while all other workers get less... — read more
A couple of frustrated managers have been sharing with their direct reports that the directors have been given the number of people they have to RIF from their teams. It is a small number, from a large pool of people, but the choice is theirs and... — read more
I love how retail doesn’t have to provide vaccination until after the largest most profitable selling season, all under the guise of “potential osha rules”. How stupid do they think we are, or better yet, how stupid are we? Let’s bust our as--s... — read more
I would like to see our fearless leader address the troops and show his genuine concern for mandating the vaccine. How the V-Team is so genuinely concerned about its employees health that it had to be done. Not the fear of Brandon and loss of... — read more
There are a lot of negative comments from people about VZW and 5G.
Ha. Verizon is trying to force us to get the vaccine. It's big time illegal. Let the lawsuits begin
Well it’s what some of us were waiting for! Information on the mandate. Looks like wireless has time to get their religious/medical exemptions in! Stand strong
Verizon now mandating the vaccine

Network manager doesn't want to discuss any technical details. Actually believes they only manage on paper, no need for details. Anyone else have a manager like this?
I don’t know how others succeed, but I'm failing at keeping up with metrics. I used to feel bad about it, but now I don't feel so bad at all because I know the problem is not in me. Moreover, I am convinced that these metrics are even more... — read more
The highest one we made was 1500 but most are 800-1100. Since team commission we have also only made quota ( new lines and sales dollars ) 3 times. Virtually everything we do sales wise never contributes to our commission checks. I’ve told this to... — read more
I was looking at last months commission numbers and found an anomaly. As a store we had 14 deacts. I researched and found that 4 of the deacts were upgrades. So we don’t get paid on upgrades but if they deact they go against out new line quota.? What... — read more
Are any other stores being forced to do cold calls daily? They want our store to do like 400 calls to people that DONT EVEN LIVE IN OUR STATE 😂 AND that’s being tracked through salesforce. We’re already running below staff and they want us to come... — read more
