    Pros

    I enjoy helping customers find what they need without having to make a second trip.

    Cons

    The company acts like they care about other things than attaching their protection plans, but in reality if you work there you'll realize the truth. I've even heard supervisors tell employees it's ok to sell the customer a cheaper product (even if it doesn't fit their needs), so they can afford the extended "warranty." If you have morals, I would work elsewhere.

    Pros

    Good Discount, lots of oppurtunities for growth and relocation.

    Cons

    Management does not care about the employees, which is the reason for a high turnover percentage. Pay is terrible, the amount of skill and knowledge required to perform at a reasonable level is insane. $9.50 an hour cannot be justified, the amount of sheer work that goes into some of these cell phone activations is ridiculous, I have spent more than 6 hours with customers for one activation, the managers in the store have no idea how to do it themselves, which make the mobile employees even more valuable. I made more money washing dishes.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of the customer.
