All the hoops you have to jump through and the low pay make the company not fun or rewarding to work for. The interview i had with them was terrible enough to sour me on working for them forever. I had to drive all the way to dubuque, about 3 hours from my location, to a retail store to do a phone interview with some pakastani or indian guy that i couldn't barely understand who was based in chicago. All this for a minimum wage job. Worst experience i ever had.
I've seen a ton of management turnover with us cellular. And i also know us cellular employees post here under guise of being just a customer to try and paint a specific picture.
As far as your distric manager stuff, I'd have to say what you described is pretty unlikely. Haven't heard of anything like that in my time with the company.
Your idea of USC being a terrible company to work for is also premature. The company Business Model has Associate Satisfaction as a key component to success. Additionally, the area I work in was second for our states "best place to work at" in 2009. Oh, and pay is far more than minimum wage.
Sorry you didn't get a job, hope you made yourself feel better by venting on an online forum. Good luck in your future.
The reason for your "sour" interview is because they want you to interview you from fresh eyes and ears not the one that runs the location your trying to get into...then you would interview again with the location your trying to get into...yeah looks like you were cut. Sorry...
The "dynamic origanization" is a total joke and I don't miss working there at all, although the pay was decent.
Also my managers couldn't think of a decent idea to save their lives, but yet still refused to listen to alternative suggestions to improve the store. Perhaps things have changed though with old man Rooney and Ellison out of the picture.
