    Pros

    Great family owned company that really cares about their employees. Great benefits, great people.

    Cons

    They are growing so fast that it is hard to find employees quickly enough to cover all of the work...so you do stay very busy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Easy going, down to earth management with real world ideals....they understand real life and support their employees.

    Pros

    38 year old family owned business works hard to balance career, promote growth, provide training and reward in an ever changing industry.

    Cons

    It is family owned, though not exclusively, so senior management career opportunities may be limited. However, 2 sr manager positions have been added recently, both non-family members. All of management work extremely hard and care.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Flexible hours Friendly staff No unattainable sales goals

    Cons

    Everyone in upper management seems to have the same few last names...however, I will say that becoming a manager or assistant manager at the store level is definitely attainable.

    Pros

    I would say that the place understands the balance between work life and personal life. The compensation plan also balances between how many hours you work. So if you work only a few hours that week, you are only required to sell so many phones.

    Cons

    Basic phones don't make commission. Some people refuse to buy a smart phone and that can have big impacts on your commission and averages.

    Advice to Management

    Pay out on basic phones. At he very least make them count towards your tier. I know AT&T still pays you.
