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

    Pros

    The flexibility is unlike any other with similar compensation. The work environment is incredibly supportive. For a commission job, everyone is extremely helpful and caring. The interview process was phenomenal. Extremely professional. Entrepreneurial environment. Ability to give yourself a raise by simply working more.

    Cons

    You have to learn how to unplug from the office. Customers receive your phone number on each receipt, so be sure to provide great service to everyone...this can turn this con into a pro.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with solid communication and transparency.

    Pros

    Great training, and very good compensation compared with other premium resellers. Ability to set your own schedule, and flexibility of which retail outlets you may work.

    Cons

    The number of hours necessary to make the 5k a month I was told at my interview. Lack of a consistent store inventory. Some store representatives are less than ethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to ethics on the sales floor. Fully stock the stores.

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

    Pros

    The different types of products gives you plenty of opportunity to make money. Just as any other sales position its what you make of it. You can make as much or as little as your efforts putting forth.

    Cons

    The travel in certain districts can be a hassle and bothersome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with your team as individuals and not as a whole unit at all times

    Pros

    You're selling with best product in the best possible cellular sales environment. It's an extremely simple management structure where the top if happy if the bottom is happy. They teach you how to run a company from the ground up.

    Cons

    There is a lot of responsibility expected from management that some employees don't recognize they'll have in the beginning (inventory management, product knowledge, customer retention).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change.

    I worked at Cellular Sales full-time

    Pros

    No denying there is money to be made here. The hours are long but the facilities are in good condition. Supervision is profit driven as it should be.

    Cons

    Training is misdirected because point of sale devices are easily confused with franchisee Cellular Sales and parent company franchisor Verizon. This allows more experienced sales personal to prey on newer employees and dupe customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try introducing a team mentality instead of pure internal competition. On the surface all seems well with staff but the stealing from one another breeds hard feelings and turnover.

    Pros

    Flexibility...you can take time off when you want as long as your shift is covered.

    Cons

    Fraternizing and favoritism are huge with this company. Doesn't seem like equal opportunity at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit sleeping with your staff and gain some moral and ethics

    I worked at Cellular Sales as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money.

    Cons

    The office culture is not stable. You pay depends on how good your relationship is with the boss and how well you sell. There is a lot of brown nosing and back stabbing. You gain a lot of mileage on your car and you are not reimbursed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management focused on building a better team and focus on the success of the representatives the money will come.
