On today’s episode of Up To Speed, we meet Paul Martin, a Solutions Specialist based in Noblesville, IN.
Paul, who began his Verizon career almost six years ago, says he’s proud to work for a company that’s the best at what they do. He is also a member of the first Verizon Insider Program (VIP) cohort, a program that allows our retail V Teamers to play a role in informing both our customers and other employees about all things Verizon.
Paul shared that both of his parents were born with disabilities. His mother was born with cataracts which were passed down to both he and his third brother at the time of their birth. He shared how he’s always wearing either contacts or bifocal glasses and when he’s not, he’s considered legally blind.
“With my prescription you’re probably looking at, without any benefits, easily between $1,000 or $2,000 and that’s just for a pair of contacts or glasses with my prescription,” Paul said. “With Verizon I’m looking at about 300 bucks – it really puts into perspective how much these benefits have impacted financially my life.”
