What happened to respect

Charleston, WV

#1 Jan 20, 2011
Applied for a job at Tower Wireless.(They have a store on the east end). After three interviews with three different managers I was offered a job (including starting date and time) and filled out new hire paperwork, including direct deposit, immigration, W4, etc. The next day they called and withdrew the offer. I reached the regional manager, and arrogant jerk named Mark, who said that since one of the managers had left the company my interview was "no longer valid." He invited me to meet him for an interview in Pittsburgh or wait 10 days and said that since I was never given a formal offer letter that the job offer was a mistake.

Whatever happened to ethics? Not my fault he fired the manager. Not my fault a job was offered "by mistake." Calls and an email to the HR manager have not been returned. I've told them I will take Mark's job and clean up their mess. Such conduct by companies should be illegal.

Sound interesting, cases like this routinely make it into the news. I would recommend approaching local news agencies. This DMA has a potential viewing audience of over 1 million people and scandal sells. It could get picked up by an enterprising reporter.

I actually work for Mark, he is a great guy and very professional....I am sorry if someone is mad they did not get a job, you were offered an interview by Mark, yes it was in pitt but if you wanted the job enough to write about it on here you would think youd make a 3 hour drive for an interview... but you prob weren't qualified anyways...better luck next time. Don't bash a very successful man who is making a company grow tremendously. Tower wireless is a huge company, that I love working for, and I am pretty sure if all this was true, Mark wouldn't be regional manager of almost all of the stores.

Pittsburgh is a heck of a lot more than a three hour drive. If you people at Tower drive like that, you are menaces on the highways.

You see what this looks like to me is a bunch of people (or one person), who got upset and decided to bash an otherwise reputable business. I will admit, without disclosing my name that the Tower Wireless stores are a little newer to my area. This is the internet. Anybody and their momma can assume a random identity and post a bunch of filth about any company. Now I don't know a whole lot about Tower Wireless as they are a newer company in my state. I do know a fair deal about business however. This whole 'Fly by night' operation you make Tower out to seem just could not be so. I do know they are a rapidly expanding company. But this is the real world you have to be doing something right to continually be opening $100k+ stores (and that's if they're leased). I also know a fair deal about Verizon. And I will tell you from personal experience dealing with them, they are VERY strict on who they will or will not do business with and all authorized retailers need to follow strict codes set up by Verizon or they lose their ability to sell the products. Tower Wireless is one of the top if not the top authorized agent of Verizon service nationwide. If you have one store Verizon heavily regulates you and makes sure you are operating in a professional manner. What do you think they'll do if you have stores all over the country. I'm sorry you feel jerked around and I get it. I have no interest in this matter other than the mere fact that I am a random spectator but have had an entirely different and positive experience with Tower HR and do not currently work for them so am only in support of them for the mere fact that I disagree that they are a 'fly by night operation' and are nothing more than a reputable business who made an honest mistake (as all people and businesses do) that happened to piss someone off and they decided to go on an online rampage. Perhaps if you spent the energy you spend on these posts on finding a job you will show the determination required to get a job above minimum wage and probably get another job quickly. That is all I have to say.

they sold my wife a droid x for $400! When she told .e what they did I drive her directly down to their store and asked for their .manager. The little guy at the counter told me they have went through 2 managers in 1 month! Wtf is going on @ tower wireless/verizon ? Once they seen me about to go postal they refunded $250back to my wifes credit card. I'm just woundering how many other people were taken advantage of?

That is slander to the 3rd degree. I doubt you will be considered for employment now Mr. John Saunders. Feel free to contact me [email protected]
I don't know any of these people, but you would think if this Mark character is supposed to be the boss he would know the difference between slander and libel.

just go straight to at&t, verizon, sprint or one of the corporates. Don't waste your time on third party fly by night companies like this.

Why would someone use a company like this. They go bankrupt and you are stuck. Not worth saving $5 a month

I applied for this company so the DM interviewed me. I was amazed at how much of an idiot he was. He is some kind of weight lifter and kept drinking from his gallon jug of blue stuff and his suit looked like he just pulled it out of a kroger bag. It was cream colored and tucked into his boots! He said they only hire professional looking people. I laughed out loud and then coughed to cover it up. This guy was nice enough but you can tell he has never been trained to interview. Anyway, they offered me a job and its a tough place to work. The job isn't hard its just that they treat you like shit. You work all these crazy hours and then they don't pay you right (salary or commission) but they cover it up so no one can prove it. Its hard to sell some of the products but they don't show you how s you get wrote up. My manager talked to me about being a manger and was pissy because I tol him that I didn't think there was job security and hi reply was "I've been with the company for 8 months" haha that's not a long time.

The employes think they are going to sue, haha they don't have a chance the compay makes so much money. They all had one of their super secret meetings to discuss and just got drunk and one of the main guys even came out to drink. Dumb dumb dumb.

Never met the owner or top bosses but they have to be doing something right because they have a big corp building. I'm just looking for another job but its hard to find.

I don't know about a lot of things that I have read on here but what I do know is that tower wireless is going to stay open and continue to grow rapidly. Tower is held to a very high standard as far as sales and customer satisfaction, and for the guy who worked there two years ago and wants to speak on how the company operates, you are ignorant, in two years this company has seen more change than I could explain. So if your not up to date on the current information please don't speak on what you do not know. I'm not saying that tower is perfect because every company could use improvement but over all a very good company to buy from and work for. They are the fastest growing Verizon franchise around and will continue to grow even if there are people trying to bash them because they got there feelings hurt or they worked here over 2 years ago and didn't stick around long enough to see the changes and improvements that have been made.

Yea they have made some changes. Yea they are growing. However do they have the funds to afford what the company needs most in order to operate and provide a good customer experience? Still horrible training, still 0 merchandise to sell, still 100% turnover, still horrible management. Opening more stores is not the answer to the real problem this company is facing. Lets see if they make it to 2013...
