So I just got the Verizon Talent Acqusition email and I am not sure if its worth it. They never said how much they will pay starting and all that yet because I know once I get the talent acqusition they might call me for an interview but I just want to ask previous verizon tech if they like the job and how much they start as. I want to be reasonable when they ask me how much am I expecting and blah blah blah.

I think it is. A job can be fun, interesting, rewarding, but if the pay is terrible, job satisfaction doesn't last long.

A friend's former boyfriend works for them and he and I got to talking about it. The pay is reasonably good versus a person's experience because they have a hard time attracting and retaining workers. The hours are fairly regular 8-5 which means you will almost certainly have rush hour traffic both ways, you have to take a mandatory lunch break, you do not get to take the work vehicle home, and you will spend a lot of unpaid time commuting because of it.

I am an electrician now and while my pay was a couple $ per hour lower than that Verizon guy I have a lot of perks. Some of that comes because the company has never had to be super competitive with wages because retention is incredibly strong. I take my work vehicle home, work 8 straight (none of that mandated lunch nonsense that only extends time away from home), and have very easy commutes both ways. Pay starts when I leave my driveway, I get a few bonuses throughout the year, a lot of flexibility with running my jobs, and am generally respected and treated well by people above and below me.

A lot of people at Verizon probably do not get that kind of workplace satisfaction or much work/life balance.
