Incredible

Wireless Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Aberdeen, WA

I have been working at Cellular Sales full-time for less than a year

ProsWhat's not to love? Benefits, money, relaxed work environment, unlimited income, shared commission and awesome team work! Everyone I work with is awesome in their own unique way and work is fun and rewarding!

Literally could not be happier working anywhere else. If you do what the successful people tell you then you can make great money. The fast paced environment means days go by fast. Slower times just mean you have time to connect with some of your prospects by calling or emailing them, learn about your product, catch up on paperwork and recharge for the next wave.

ConsNone!!
Nada!!
Zip!!!
Zilch!!
Zero!!

Advice to Senior ManagementSend more tablets and promo items to Aberdeen, we'll sell em all! =)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Unlimited Work

Wireless Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
Knoxville, TN

I have been working at Cellular Sales full-time for more than a year

ProsYou can work as much or as little as you want. Perfect for someone that is single. Fun work environment! you can make a ton of money at Cellular Sales.

ConsThe company is heading for a more corporate environment. Tons of pointless non paid trainings with no clear objectives. Inventory and cancelations come out of your check. $500 dollars came out of my check this month alone.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the sales reps do their thing. Stop the pointless trainings.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Love Hate

Cellular Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Saugerties, NY

I worked at Cellular Sales full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat people to work with, you make your own pay check and have the ability to make 70-80k a year. You get to experience people from all aspects of life.

Consterrible hours and drives to work, no customers means you basically sit there for free all day. Getting Paid once a month is awful. There's a lot of talk about being a team but no very much actual team work going on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Ok company very laid back commission only

Wireless Sales Consultant (Former Employee)
Virginia Beach, VA

I worked at Cellular Sales full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMoney was pretty good after a few months. Approx 30 hours a week some pretty good people who work there average rep makes around 2700 pre month before taxes

ConsNo salary. Straight commission commission goals and payout changes at least once a year. If you are new it's very tough to get started. They have a draft for shifts and if they are in one of the 3 per year you will get nothing scheduled. You will need to ask others for their shifts to make money at first. The reviews on here are a little doctored meaning the owners ask the current reps to put positive reviews. Notice no former employee gives them great reviews?!?! Biggest issue I had was I had to pay back the company for any phones that were turned off with in the first 6 months. iPhone for instance cost us over 300 out if our check if someone deacted.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
