Verizon employees offered limited edition of Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX
For those unsure about a career path, how about a job with Verizon Wireless? The carrier is offering its employees a limited edition model of both the Motorola DROID RAZR and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. The differences between the limited edition variants, which will not be sold to the public by Big Red (more on that below), and the regular models that any Verizon customer can buy include a unique red and black pattern on the rear of the unit. The back is also where you will find a unique number engraved on each limited edition. And while a free dock will be included, to further differentiate these units from the units sold to the public, the phrase "Limited Edition" will be engraved on the front.

Verizon Wireless employees are also getting a deal on the price. A 16GB Motorola DROID RAZR limited edition will be $99 while the 32GB Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX limited edition will be just $199. Why, it's enough to make you fill out a Verizon employment application. And if you already have a job but really, really want one or both of these limited editions, we would suggest checking eBay or Craigslist because we would imagine that some of Big Red's employees are going to want to cash in on what could be good public demand for these models.

Young'un? How old are you? You should be eligible for employment at 18ish (though they seem to prefer college graduates).

Ah, okay. See about getting a job at Best Buy Mobile or something. Build up your experience selling phones. If you do a good job, you can then probably apply at Verizon.

Applied there too. Job hunting is just a bitch in general. xD
I'm probably just going to be a life guard with my friends.

Lol, you could start out in regular Best Buy and then just move into Mobile. Half of my coworkers started out in other departments and then were hired for positions with mobile. :)

Getting a job at Best Buy is a pain in the ass if you don't know anyone who already works there (cronyism at it's worst) and they don't exactly have the best types working there. Verizon Wireless is a little better but you do have a quota to make as floor salesman or you should have experience as a technician if you want that position.

I tried for Geek Squad (they hired people who have no computing experience as training is included) but they said I wasn't qualified (I'm certified), I ended up somewhere better (UPS) and with that on my resume I get more offers.

Do your best and shoot for the jobs you want, sometimes a better job will come along.

Now this is a real response. If you want to set your standards, you'd avoid Best Buy because there's nothing best about them except crappy service and overpriced products.

I'm work for a Premium Retailer of Verizon and it's pretty cool actually. If you want to join the Verizon game I would recommend starting there to get some cell phone experience under your belt. But anyways I really like that checkered pattern on the RAZR

It's not worth it to buy one of these on Ebay or Craigslist at a high price while better phones are already being developed for 2012.

It'd be fun to own one of these, but I won't spend a ton on them.

Verizon is ridiculous on there employment standards they're very picky. Act like their selling homes just a dam phone or tablet.smh

Well, consider this: you're not just selling a phone. You're selling a plan as well. Verizon's minimum plan which allows for smartphones is 70 bucks a month. Multiply that by 24 months and you're looking at 1700 dollars. However, let's add unlimited texting to the plan: now you're looking at 90 bucks a month, or 2160 dollars over two years. Now, Verizon's churn is pretty low, so it's likely that customer you just sold on is going to stick around for at least another contract period. So you've really earned Verizon at least 4000 dollars in revenue, and that's just for an individual with a smartphone and unlimited texting, and the minimum minute allowance.

Bro I've worked in Wireless a long tine, I know they sell plans to and the actual money comes from the plan barely any for the phone. At some stores they want college graduates as if they're working at the corporate head quarters.smh It's not that dam hard to sell phones and plans if you know what your talkin about. An they really need to work on their equal opportunity hiring see very few minorities at stores.

gonna start a race war? Have you been to chicago?!

I've gotten great service from stores that only had 'minorities' working in their store.

Verizon is the largest cellphone carrier, so if you've worked in cellular for a long time then you'd know they have every right to be picky about who they hire...

smh ;)

Smh not starting a race war been started thank Christopher get lost and supposedly discover somethin that already existed Columbus for that. I'm just sayin from what I've seen here in California It's not as diverse as some of you make it seem and obviously in some areas there would be more minorities due to Verizon knowing that area is densely populated by minorities.

I'm turning 16 in two weeks; I'm going to apply once I get my "Worker's Permit".
I just hope I can work after school.

Verizon won't hire anyone under 18, but they prefer even a little older. Don't even bother applying there. You'd be wasting your time. With sooo many people looking for work nowadays, they can be even more picky with who they hire.

there's no reason not to hire. i have to put some real effort in job searching, especially now. past generations have made it so hard for this generation of entry levels.

So do you employees have to be up for renewal or can you just buy the phone off contract for that price?

i don't think contracts fly with employees. i was talking to one the other day and he said he can just exchange his anytime.

Oh my God, KingKurogiii - do NOT work for a retailer, especially if you'd ever like to get in at the real carrier level. Retailers are bad for the corporate stores and I promise you, any store manager who doesn't want to hear their employees complaining will never in a million years hire you with any sort of retailer position on your resume. Retailers train their employees to be shady, and that's the last thing we want in our corporate stores. Just don't do it.
And one more little piece of advice that is going to sound mean, but isn't meant to - don't be so cocky. Hiring managers don't like it.

And yes - we have contracts, as employees. We can't just do whatever we want. It's Verizon.

what makes you think i'd complain? xD
call it what you want but i walk into interviews with confidence in my abilities and if a hiring manager doesn't want that then it's probably a place i don't want to work.

No no. The other employees would complain about you being hired, should you have retailer experience. To be blunt, real Verizon employees HATE retailers. You want to start off on a bad foot in a corporate store? Mention working at a retailer, should the hiring manager even be stupid enough to hire someone with that kind of "experience." It's like retailers train their employees to be awful.
Point is, if you ever want to work for a corporate store, never work for a retailer. They will laugh at your resume. TRUST me.
