When discussing what they liked about AT&T, people focused on the good pay and benefits. They also said there was opportunity for growth. One thing we like to see was that they offer educational benefits, which many people said they used.
The main criticisms revolved around the work-life balance, which many said was not good. There were also criticisms that had to do with unrealistic sales expectations. To be fair, this would only relate to retail jobs.
What felony convictions might have a hard time getting hired here?
We know you still may be wondering, does AT&T hire felons? While we’ve given our assessment on that, we also want to talk about certain criminal convictions.
All companies, especially one as public as AT&T, are going to be focused on their image. Because of this, some criminal convictions may be problematic.
Sex crimes will make it tricky to get hired in certain roles here. We also doubt those with fraud or computer crime charges will find employment due to the fact that AT&T employees deal with customers’ private information on a daily basis. Those with assault or robbery charges will find it difficult to get a job as an installation technician since this involves entering people’s homes.
If you have a coniction related to the job, it’s going to be a barrier. If AT&T isn’t the communications company for you, try Univision.
