    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.

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

    Pros

    The starting salary for entry-level recruits was solid. The commission was also decent, as long as you were aggressive. High quotas, yet they paid out well when met. Competitive environment.

    Cons

    Never having a set schedule, opportunity to move-up was not always attainable. Cut-throat environment, but yet had many sales people who became lazy and just brought down the overall morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train properly, encourage to always be high-energy and hopefully sales will stay up.

    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.

    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

    It is not a difficult job, but if you really want to make money you have to be a go getter.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for the most post, good work life balance, and low stress atmosphere. Very little micromanaging. You can make a lot of money at this job if you work hard for it.

    Cons

    Pay is inconsistent, and it's 100% commission. It's practically a job in and of itself just making sure that you are getting paid correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forgot about the small guy.

    Former Employee - Sales Representative  in  Deerfield Beach, FL
    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Deerfield Beach, FL

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

    Pros

    The best part of this job was the ability to work unsupervised, for the most part. The stores were new and clean, and appealing to customers.

    Cons

    In order to earn a reasonable amount of commission, it was necessary to overcharge the customer and to sell them cheap accessories which were marked up to premium prices. This led to complaints, returns, and ill will toward the sales force. Customer sentiments were then redirected to the sales force as their problem. There was an unusually low amount of customers walking in to the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with less skill and background as this is an entry level retail job.

    Pros

    minimal management, high commissions, sales experience

    Cons

    retail hours, quotas that aren't required but are "expected," general lack of transparency, extremely long commute with no fuel/vehicle compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management is so well payed for their lack of morality that they don't care about improving the environment for the salesman

    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.

    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.
