Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Houston, TX
Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Houston, TX

I worked at Sprint full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Excellent corporate benefits and great commission potential for the sales pro who is good with quick in-and-out, short-cycle closing

Cons

Typical retail schedule - they give a lot of PTO ro new employees, but the seasonal retail needs make much of the year very inconvenient times to take your PTO; not ideal for sales reps whose forte is relationship building and longer sales cycle closing; no choice in location assignment, which can mean high costs in commute if you're in a large metro area (I worked at a store 40 mins & a toll fee from home)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know your staff, even if history indicates they may not stick around long

    I have been working at Sprint full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work schedule (for most corporate employees), work/life balance. There are advancement opportunities and many employees have high tenure. A high number of employees have a sense of loyalty to the company and believe in its value.

    Cons

    Micromanaging is a huge issue right now due to the pressure to make sales quotas or validate someone's position. They lack much needed interdepartment communication on key initiatives. Each department only focuses on their needs rather than a company-wide vision. Executive management teaches not to manage by the numbers but that's all everyone does, and it comes from the top down. The commission structure is so confusing that no Sales Rep knows how they get paid (corporate sales, not retail).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees and they will be more motivated to excel. Don't manage by the numbers. Trust your exempt level employees to manage their time wisely and reward by their accomplishments rather than micromanaging.
