This is an exceptional company

I have friends who work for Verizon, I once worked for one of the foundation companies (GTE) and I can assure you that getting on with them is indeed a wise path to choose. The benefits are very good. There is a flip-side to this coin, however, in that you may see some layoffs now that their acquisition of Alltel is complete. This won't normally affect wage earners in sales or network, but I'm sure that most upper and mid-level Alltel managers are updating their resumes.

Verizon hires

Yes of course you have to work holidays and different hours... it is called a job.It seems some people just don't have good work ethics, motivation and or discipline. Of course it has benefits. Some good ones too. It is hard though and you work for it. You have to be educated and like to talk and listen. It is all about what are you looking for ? A hand out or a job that you earn your $. hey we all can be let go anytime. If we have a job we can always be replaced by someone else. @**@ ~

You hit

that right on the head. I think others are trying to establish a warm and fuzzy reason not to apply for a job and continue on Plan C listed below in my earlier post.

before you are hired you have to pass a written test, and if you pass, you go through one or two interviews. the job requires you to work any day of the week including holidays, they are open all year long including thanksgiving and christmas. you may work daytime one week nights the next. i am not trying to discourage anyone, i am just being honest. also, they prefer to hire young people. most of their hourly workers are under the age of 40.

Good News

and close to public transportation. If public transportation is not an option, how about car pooling? Here's another great opportunity, about $13 per hour to start. Probably have some employee benefits; who knows maybe even health insurance. Perhaps even shift work or flex time? Any Takers? Let's hope so in this dismal economy. Plan B, I suppose, would be to remain on unemployment. Plan C, is probably to do nothing and continue with entitlements. Great Opportunities, with a National Employer, do not come along every day. Let's hope tonight's news broadcast reports on the overwhelming turnout for this opportunity.
