    I have been working at Cellular Sales

    Pros

    What a breath of fresh air. Finally a place I get rewarded for my efforts. If I work really hard I get a great paycheck. If I take off 2 weeks and do the minimum I get a bad paycheck, seems fair.
    -Flexible scheduling
    -Strong Leadership and ethics
    -Growth and advancement
    -Voice
    -Fun outside activities

    Cons

    -Very time consuming(if thats a con)
    -Not easy
    -The wireless landscape is constantly changing
    -Must keep up on extended Trainings and outside learning of the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing at this time.
    Open more stores maybe.

    You work as an independent contractor but are taxed as a regular employee. It is a straight commission job

    Dear Sales Rep in Orlando,
    Thank you for your review. Just one clarification. Cellular Sales hires strictly employees, no independent contractors. Our desire is to treat you as your own business

    I have been working at Cellular Sales

    Pros

    You get out what you put in. If you are didicated and build a relationship with your customers, they can become your forever clients. It's like any job, if you work hard you reap the benefits.

    Cons

    First 60 days in the negative due to paying back "draw". Returns, deactivations, theft is taken out of employees pay. "Slackers" ride off the backs of the hard working sales reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Option of being paid an hourly dollar amount OR your commission. Which ever one is the higher dollar amount.

    I have been working at Cellular Sales full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Cellular Sales in Central FL for almost 4 yrs now. I had doubts being in Sales at first. But the company taught me to be myself and use the tools they provide to give the best customer experience possible. You have the best resources and great team support, to keep you up to date in the technology, promotions, tips, training and angles in problem solving. Our leaders works with you, from helping guide you to make your goals to assisting in getting your shifts covered, if needed. Our Market managers celebrate us for our birthdays, anniversaries and achievements. They are always working hard to find ways to help us make better money. And you have lots of flexibility on your schedule.

    Cellular Sales gives you all the opportunities for a successful career. What you do with it, is up to you.

    I truly enjoy my job.

    Cons

    Just like all sales, the carriers are competitive. However, Cellular Sales has their hands tied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have the pleasure to be able to work with our Upper Management and Leaders often. And would only say praises!

    I Was Not Cut Out For Sales

    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Baltimore, MD
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Baltimore, MD

    I worked at Cellular Sales part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Fun training in NJ
    -Paid well if you work hard (but a huge chunk is taken out in taxes and there is no change in your bracket which is bad because due to your commissions you don't earn the same each month)
    -Good coworkers (if you're lucky)
    -Share system in place works well if you're having a slow day
    -Easy to get time off if you plan ahead

    Cons

    -They will shove unnecessary sales products down your throat which subsequently you have to shove down your customers' throats
    -You are not compensated for the numerous training and meetings which any normal company would have to pay for
    -Shady work culture sometimes
    -Drive to different and far locations, but no compensation
    -Management is pretty bad
    -Days without customers and rather than being able to do your own activities, the company wants you to clean the store and put up signs again without pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being on all commission is fine and understood when we sign up, but don't make us participate in anything other than sales or attend any mandatory meetings/trainings if you are not planning on paying us for it.

    Pros

    Short shifts, Lots of flexibility,

    Cons

    Commission only. Pay held for 2 months. You work with people who make big money by lying to customers and adding lines to their account that they did not ask for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a base salary and get rid of the lying employees.

    Pros

    This company is a sales job not a clerk job and that is what I was told 4 yrs ago and have enjoyed working here. The uncapped commission is what I like the most. If you put the work in you can make great money. The people that do not work out are clerks. If your a sales rep you can make great money if you put in the work

    Cons

    Taking time off for a vacation can be tough, if you take a week off for a vacation there is no vacation pay but I was told that from the beginning so you just have to plan right.
