I worked at Cellular Plus full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Fast paced industry, great for those that like change and challenge. Compensation can be good, at times. 401k is nice but takes a long time to vest. Very good at opening new locations and establishing profitability. Even with drawbacks, a good store provides opportunity and potential to enjoy job.

Cons

Very paranoid management, cameras are to watch the employees, not the premises or inventory. Very strong tendency to my way or the highway management style. Expects marketing ideas but only signs off on flyers and volunteerism, i.e., Will spend thousands on tv, radio and paper ads but won't invest $100 into permanent signage at local events. Lacks a coherent company vision and leadership. No communication of values and vision to employees. Inconsistent management from district to district, policies not consistently enforced. Nepotism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate goals and successes to employees. Allow managers to be managers, not higher paid employees. Tie bonuses to store performance, not personal goal.

    Pros

    Decent pay compared to other work places such as a grocery store or fast food place. Very routine hours with little need to be flexible. Once you get the hang of it, it isn't that hard to keep up. If you are motivated by being good at your job you're in the clear.

    Cons

    Wage is 10 an hour for PT reps. Commission pay is good depending on your store volume. Accelerator to boost your commission is higher than reachable standards so you don't hit it every month. It is very stressful. Full time employees can end up doing more operation work than the manager. The manager can really make or break the store. If you don't like the manager try to find a new job. Cameras are always on you and any of your managers can watch it. Management could care less about your health. No benefits for part time reps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have trained managers and raise your commission pay

    Pros

    Industry is exciting
    Company has profit sharing

    Cons

    Company does not treat the employees with any respect
    All employees are always under suspicion of stealing
    Always looking for reasons to fire you instead of make you better.
    Sales director back stabs employees to other employees by discussing confidential issues
    Sales director swears at employees
    Commissions are always wrong
    Employees are not ever allowed overtime and you get written up if you do so you always have to work off the clock
    There is no direction or leadership. There is an expectation everyone should just "know" what to do.
    Cameras in all the stores to spy on employees and listen to all their conversations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs restructuring and direction.

    Doesn't Recommend
