    Former Employee - Customer Service and Sales in Salt Lake City, UT (US)

    I worked at CenturyLink full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Monday through Friday shifts,

    Cons

    Union environment, No matter how good numbers are they always find things to get you in trouble for. All rules are black and white, It doesn't matter any circumstances there are no exceptions. They take away ways to make sales and still raise numbers. Will have contests for rewards then take them back after you have won it because they are too busy to let you off phones. When hired you are told it is a sales job but you are 90% customer service with sales every now and then

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promises to employees. Make commission worth while. don't lie about it being a sales job

    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and decent benefits. If you have high technology skills and can get in the right place you may do OK.

    Cons

    Starting about three years ago when we were still Qwest....management hasn't seemed to care about the workers at all. It's only gotten worse since CenturyLink took over. Endless hours day and night, lack of equipment to do the job, and little work/life balance. Micromanagement like you wouldn't believe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, please do us all a favor and find something else to do that more suits your lack of qualifications. The second level of management is redundant and should be eliminated and the company could save a lot of money by eliminating over half of the management in general.
    Funny thing, the occupational workforce has been reduced by half in the past couple of years, but we still have about the same number of managers? Wasteful.
