Nothing even comes up
They’re not even trying to hide it this time. Field operations is being collapsed. If you’re in ops, good luck.

What is the annual base pay % for performing vs. leading? I've heard performing is 3% but haven't heard anything about leading. Also, has anyone attempted to negotiate a higher base pay increase? If so, what was your experience? Thanks in advance. — read more
Lets discuss why 5G is not the future....
Business Account Managers were let go today. Every year this company is slashing jobs now. How is this company keeping morale up when you have to worry every year of losing your job?
I'll only be here a few more days. It was hard for me to make a decision because it is not easy to start from scratch. However, I decided to leave because it is becoming increasingly clear that the leadership of this company has no vision. They are... — read more
New hires... I just wonder if these people did any research before they applied here. I can’t believe these young people have no other options and that this is their only and best option. I simply can't believe it. This is a company that now ... — read more
Honestly, with online shopping being so prevalent, how much foot traffic do stores get these days? I'm assuming it's mostly seniors who are refusing to learn how to use anything that was invented in the last 30+ years. This is a genuine question: how... — read more
If I hustle my a$$ off and contribute 60-70% to my stores quota every month, WHY should the lazy old timer that averages about 12 new lines a month & calls out twice a week be paid the SAME amount as me? For the love of god can someone please give... — read more
Why the h*ll should we devote ourselves to a business that doesn’t care for us?
Working here for me was a test how much stress I could tolerate. I don't know if I found it harder to bear the fact that we were understaffed and overwhelmed or the fact that everyone's position was so unstable and that it was possible to get cut any... — read more
So apparently the company can pay people to down vote anything that is said to put the company in a bad light, but we can't hire anyone, can't get pens or post-it notes, can't get a POS system that works, can't figure out why people are dropping like... — read more
Sounds like VZ is not so bad off according to "the Street" vs all the opinions posted on this site.... Earnings have been mild when compared to the billions of dollars' worth of investments into the build-out of 5G in recent years at Verizon... — read more
Rumors are circulating about upcoming layoffs and I hope to be the target. Don’t get me wrong, I feel sorry for those who want to stay here, but I want layoff and severance pay. I wouldn’t miss severance for just any job offer because I’ve worked... — read more
The inflation rate is 7%, therefore if Verizon gives you a raise of anything 7% or less, It’s not actually a raise. You are actually getting a decrease in pay.
Short answer: it doesn't make sense at all. Top dogs keep forgetting that employees are the most important asset. How is it possible for someone who is 'competent' to consider great customer service as an afterthought? Their strategy is completely... — read more
It's bound to happen. They are so off course and blinded to reality. When the majority of DMs and above have lost touch with retail it's inevitable. Unfortunately the path they are going down is in the wrong direction. They will accidentally destroy... — read more
You will start seeing the changes in March and by year end the goal is to have 75-80% of stores turned into indirect agents. SMB team as a whole will be gone as will the majority of retail by year end.
I think you will agree that quotas are mostly unrealistic. People are overwhelmed. Is it even possible to hope for realistic quotas or is the only solution to leave this ridiculous company?
I feel like the way they train us needs improvement. I work in customer service and I was told to answer the phones before my training was finished. I didn’t even finish learning about billing and credits. Unfortunately customer service is completely... — read more
We are barely hanging on by a thread in Austin-South Texas. Profits over people has been the motto around the area. How many employees need to be sick to realize the covid procedures are absolute garbage now.
Does anyone know if nap time will be implemented once leadership returns to office??
Listened to all the arguments today. Clearly you can see how they are leaning to vote. Even CNN claims Bidens mandate is done. Truly happy, but feel extremely sorry for those scared and pressured into it. History will expose the truth and history... — read more
If you catch covid you automatically need to go via Sedgwick and even though you submit documents with proof it takes forever to get approval, we have a covid-19 resource page and they make it seem like an easy process but you have to jump via hoops... — read more
My store received a bad survey the other day that was out of our control and everyone lost $400 on their commission check! Something has to give!
Finish the sentence….
More than half the states are working Christmas day. Great company.
HR here ......Every new hire that has quit in the past year has mentioned the surveys effecting pay being a reason for leaving. This was in the exit interview process. I have never worked in the retail stores but can tell you this topic is brought up... — read more
Kickoff was corny asf. Fix the issues with your employees, system issues etc. again, he’s ruining the company. Embarrassing
We are understaffed anyway, and ever since some colleagues have learned that they are COVID positive, the situation is even more complicated. However, the store is still not closed. Some stores are closed, but ours still isn't. I don't know what... — read more
Does anyone know about the effects of the reorg impacting workforce planning analysis? Quarter1?
Multiple stores in district closed. And guess what?!?! All the employees that are out with covid are VACCINATED!! How do you even push a mandate knowing that the vaccine does not stop you from getting and spreading covid? Wake up and stop being... — read more
Less than 7 days till many people find out if they will soon need to find new jobs or get the vaccination. Good luck to those holding out and sorry to those that already jumped ship early.
Here is to all you hard working peeps!! Happy New Yrs guys and gals!!
It's interesting to me what those who hope that stores will be closed are writing. Is it possible that someone thinks they will be much better off if the company closes stores?
Why hasnt this been updated yet? With the vast amount of vaccinated people getting covid the policy needs updated. They are still differentiating between vaccinated and unvaccinated as if there is a difference. 90% of new covid cases are from... — read more
Well the post here was correct. Just announced today a new quarterly bonus for Frontline employees. The top 25% of Frontline employees, dark blue on QoS and with five bars or managers with the best SWAG for the quarter are eligible for, wait for it... — read more
