    I worked at Glentel full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot:
    1. Compensation is by far the best in the industry. Benefits package is amazing and contest/incentives happen very often.
    2. Opportunity for growth. GLENTEL is a big advocate of personal and professional development. Their training program is extensive and tackles every level on the retail side. Programs encompass, sales training, leadership, time management, hiring, operations, etc...most of their positions are filled with internal candidates, even at the senior executive level.
    3. You feel like you have a lot of autonomy in what you do. You are encouraged to think customer first and make customer experience the number one priority.
    4. People are amazing!

    Cons

    If you are a person who doesn’t take responsibility and likes to blame circumstances than GLENTEL is not for you!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up
