Pros

I love working here. Our upper management wants us to earn lots of money and is always putting out spiffs or contests to give us the opportunity to earn more. Its a pretty cool thing when the head guy of the entire region sends you a text to say, "Hey, good job today". We are able to be extremely creative with ways to make more sales and this is encouraged. Each sales rep is treated like a sales professional, because we are. You don't have to get approval to switch a shift and have just as much authority as the person next to you. The entire company is built of people that started on the sales floor.

AND THE BEST PART!!!

I set my own Salary.
The harder i work, the more money i earn. And its really true. In my first 3 months i made over 50% of my salary a my last job.

Cons

These are a little difficult to come up with. You will rotate stores, and sometimes the stores are a little farther away that you would prefer, so mileage can add up on your vehicle. The hours can be long, but they are working on that. That is really the only negatives that i can come up with to this company. And the thing is, i live in Austin, i know tons of people that drive over an hour to get to work in traffic. My longest takes almost 45 min. and there is rarely traffic to deal with.

    A very amateur experience. General manager has little respect for employees and little knowledge on how to lead/manage

    Pros

    The scheduling is flexible. You don't always work with a manager so you're not constantly being micro-managed. The company pays high commissions compared to the industry standard.

    Cons

    The market I worked in was a very unprofessional environment.Training is inadequate. I trained for two weeks. At no point in training did we learn anything about addressing technical issues with the phones and basically had to learn "on the go" when it came to tech support. Our General Manager came up with a ranking system when it comes to making the schedule because there are various stores in our market and some are busier than others. The ranking system was a culmination of # of units sold, # of new activations, # of insurance policies sold, and a certain $ amount made off of selling accessories. Unfortunately, the person who makes our schedule, the GM, is dishonest and inconsistent when it comes to where some people fall in the ranking. So you're really not in control of how much money you can make, unless the GM likes you for his own personal reasons. You have to be responsible for hundreds of dollars of the company's cash for up to a week, but then when you go to monthly sales meetings all they preach is "personal responsibility".

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a loss prevention plan instead of making the reps responsible for deactivations.

    Rather satisfying pay but way too many hours around 55

    Pros

    good pay. not very hard work. No management to breath down your neck. Freedom to sell whatever you want for whatever price.

    Cons

    high stress. Lots of drama when it comes to the share system. Chargebacks can be in the hundreds of dollars. You've got to lug around hundreds of dollars in cash from bill payments for up to a week. You are charged out for missing inventory, including phones that can cost hundreds. Their loss-prevention policies and strategies are non-existent so you can count on loosing lots of money.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your Loss-prevention program. Have powered up Demos so that agents dont have to keep opening new phones and therefore leading to missing phones and equipment. Also, seal up the accessories so agents are stopped from using them on the floor before they are sold. Lastly figure out a way to get the goddang doors swinging with customers who want to buy and not customers who just want to complain about their service. Recognize that the people you hire are not going to sit on campaign and make calls all day. Thats not the type of hirees youre going to get because they expect to work in a STORE where the customers come to them.
