I would agree. I am one of those tenured reps you are talking about being ran out of the company. I would have been there for 6 years this month which doesn't seem very tenured but in the world of USCC, 6 yrs is a tenured rep as turnover is 1-2 years (Hence why they give you another full week of vacation after hitting your 3 yr mark).

I worked at USCC for my last two years back in college thru graduation and gave them everything I had yet never really given a chance to move up or do anything more. I enjoyed sales (and the commission) so I stayed for another 3 yrs before deciding to go back to my family company to really make a difference and actually make some real money and I am very happy I did.

I hold USCC responsible for its own demise. Talking to reps now (I refered a few best friends to the company) and it's just really changing for the worse. All signs point to shaking customers down for operating revenue and conserving as much revenue as possible by underpaying the frontline reps but giving bonuses to high execs. If you don't drink the kool-aide...beware.

My advice if you are still there: There have been red-flags popping up for at least 2 years there and especially lately. Find out what you want to do with your life, get your ducks in a row, and enroll in school or make a career change NOW while you still have a job.

Good luck to all. Sad
