Default Who Is Verizon Hiring???...

...Just walked into a corporate Verizon store (not one of the free standing franchise stores or kiosks) around where I live and asked if the DNA was in yet even if it wasn't yet for sale. The salesperson looked perplexed and said "No...maybe by early next week but they may be available online." WTF?????????? Not a friggin' clue less than 48 hours before it's going to be launched. And he wasn't kidding because he asked another salesperson and that guy also looked like he was being asked to name the capitol of Uzbeckistan. Do these people pay attention to anything like the press release they had announcing this just a week ago? I politely informed him that he most certainly would have them in before "early next week" unless, by chance, I had wandered in to an AT&T store and not realized it. But then I looked around, saw all the red and let him know that as a corporate Verizon store he was going to be selling these in less than 48 hours. He seemed surprised and (of course) befuddled.

Typical Verizon reps, they are seriously clueless, the only thing they care about is making money by selling phones...

Weird though, as they're usually briefed on new devices 2 weeks before they come out...maybe they're just playing dumb lol?

I'll agree that most corp VZW stores seem to be losing employee IQ over the years.

Silly girl couldn't even open the sim/sd drawer with the tool on a maxx hd.

Same out here in Cali. No idea about the Droid DNA or the Note 2. Clueless idiots.

Hey guys, I understand the frustration of not being able to get info from the folks who should have it, but the negativity isn't worth it. Plus we already have a thread on this subject, here: Corporate stores don't know about new phone releases? I have locked this thread for those reasons. Thanks for understanding.

HTC has broken the boundaries again with the DROID DNA. This 5-inch behemoth comes to compete directly with the Galaxy Note 2, but what gives it the edge over the popular Samsung device? Well, this guy has a full HD 1080p display. Mix that with a p... Read More
