Pros

Theres really not a lot I can say positive about this company. If you happen to be a store manager you do get the flexibility to make your own schedule.

Cons

Pay for regular hourly employees is minimum wage. There are no raises. The company believes that you make your own raises by selling more cell phones and getting more spiffs. Recently corporate changed policies in an effort to make the job better for employees. In the short amount of time since that, they have altered or canceled almost all of these changes. Overall, it seems like they just don't care enough for their employees and it shows in the turnover that the stores experience.

    Pros

    Sales experience, provided that most associates have no sales experience. A marginal discount on Cell phone providers via employee line (which is a pain to coordinate but is dependent on your representative).

    Cons

    Low and ever changing pay structures can cause any employee to ask themselves: "Why am I doing this?".

    Advice to Management

    Stop calling sooo many meetings at HQ. Try to find a pay structure that is fair. Try to find a solid direction for this company and stick to it.

  2. Don't be a store manager

    Pros

    Commissions and monthly bonuses are available. Hours of operations are reasonable for retail.

    Cons

    Too many overpriced addons that you are required to sell and conference calls almost daily. They pay rookie management overtime coeffiecent.

    Advice to Management

    Less conference calls
