    Pros

    This company is all about giving the employee all the right tools to succeed. I left a job making a minimum $35,000 a year and was kind of nervous giving that up. They expedited my hiring/interviewing and encouraged me to complete my final 2 weeks with my former employer. They allowed me to schedule my new hire training around my former employer schedule. So far I have not met a single person in the market for this company that is not making the money they deserve. Mentors, trainers, and managers want you to succeed and do everything they can to make that happen. If you do what you are supposed to the leaders show appreciation for you.

    Cons

    The company and specifically the market I am in is going through a cleaning house period so to speak. Unfortunately some of the employees have become complacent and are not making goals and doing the right thing for the company and customers. Some of them have bad attitudes and are not really liking the fact that they are on the way out. I try to stay away from them and not play into the bad mouthing of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support your employees and give them support and show appreciation. Keep leading by example and providing the leadership motivated employees want.

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

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility. That's IT. I have nothing else to say about them to be honestl.

    Cons

    Deacts-random deactivations show up on your check even if a customer has not deacted. So in a given month, you may only have about $70 taken from your paycheck (RARE), the biggest majority of the time they are $300, $500, $800... I have had as much as $1,700 taken from my paycheck. Some were verifiable and accurate, and more often than not it was the fault of another rep, not me! So yes, you SHARE commissions AND deacts.

    If inventory goes missing from your store, it comes out of your check! You're welcome.

    Management (LOL) if you want to call them that, are constantly nagging on all kinds of randomness that more often than not will not have a thing to do with you or anything you can affect change on.

    Verizon store support reps are awesome, but they "leadership" stays nervous when they are in the store.

    If you work a slow location, you may not make a PENNY even though you spent 8+ hours in a store. Is it the EMPLOYEES' fault that there are no customers in the store? No. Advertise!

    I went so far as to cold call to bring people in and NOTHING helped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a base if no VAPS made on a shift. It is DEMORALIZING to make NO money and spend your day inside of a store!

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

    Pros

    Super Flexible schedule.
    Easiest job you will ever have.
    No micro - management.
    Casual atmosphere.
    Ability to make your own schedule.
    Great beginner sales job.

    Cons

    I'm not sure how anyone could support a family with this income. And here's why:

    You really have to work every day if you want to make real money. Only a handful make over 5k a month. And you have to sell a TON of phones to even get that. 5k sounds good right? You would think so. And that's what they want you to think. Of that 5k, after taxes, missing inventory, and DEACTS ( the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of in my life ), your lucky to get 3K.

    I don't care what anyone on here has said, the more phones you sell, the higher your deacts will be.

    Here's how deacts work. Cellular Sales makes you pay for the equipment if the customer either doesn't pay their bill or cancels their service. So you not only lose your commission, but you also have to pay for the equipment, which conveniently comes out of your paycheck.

    God help you if you get sick or have a bad month or something. I've seen some reps that have $800 - $1,000 in deacts. Simply for doing their job. Mine were usually $350 - $500. I would make about $4500 but i would be lucky to get $3,000. And you only get paid once a month, when there is a 14 day return policy. Make sense? Nope.

    Basically Verizon says its ok to sell this person a phone after running an application, but than if they cancel their service, which you have no control over, you LOSE money. How this makes sense to someone I will never understand. Cellular Sales has plenty of money to pay for their own equipment loss.

    And there really is no room for advancement unless you live in Knoxville.

    Numbers are the ONLY thing these guys care about. If you put up huge numbers, you can lie, cheat, and steal as much as you want. From my experience, most of the people putting up huge numbers are doing one of, if not all three.

    And that's the God's honest truth. I have no reason to lie. I quit to make more money somewhere else. I was making decent money, but it's like they try to take it from you.

    They still owe me about $1000 which i will probably never see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PAY FOR YOUR OWN EQUIPMENT LOSS!! Losing money for doing your job is beyond ridiculous. I have worked for Verizon Corporate as well, and they do not do this. If someone cancels, you simply have to make up the lost activation the next month. Which is easy and actually makes sense.

    Pros

    I absolutely love the flexibility of schedule. If I need time off, I swap around my schedule and make it happen. Unlike my previous employers (all retail management), with Cellular Sales, you absolutely get back what you put in. Hard work, dedication, and good people skills are the key to success! Take care of your customers needs and you WILL reap the benefits.

    Cons

    It is commission only, which is not for some people. I happen to love it though.
