Pros

Great Pay and benefits, the best I have ever seen. Salary and commision. All the overtime you want'
Paid training,

Cons

Managers condone Bullying, and show favoritism to there buddies. Discriminate if your over 50 big time. Micro manage you if your not a favorite. They make it very hard to make your quotas. Not good at on the job training.

Advice to Management

Everyone does not learn at the same rate. Work to be a better mentor to everyone. Some people need more training then others.

    Pros

    Pay is great
    Benefits are one of the best I have ever seen
    Training is better than what I got in 4 years at college
    The people at this company are awesome for the most part

    Cons

    I guess the only con would be if you are in the retail end and then you have to work every weekend...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great benefits, 6% 401k, medical, dental, 8k a year tuition assistance. Made 50k first year in retail sales, which is great for retail. Stable company, OK job right out of college to make some money

    Cons

    If you work in retail you will hate your life! Sales reps used to 80k+ from 2000-2006, until the market became saturated (everyone has a cell phone). You will be micro managed on 15+ metrics that are almost impossible to hit. have to offer every customer a tablet, home phone service, 80$ accessory package, insurance, etc etc...They expect so much from you but treat you like a child. most good reps left for greener pastures. Hard to get promoted, takes 2-4 years to make assistant manager which is also a pay cut. Corporate is supposedly better, but you have to sell your soul to get there, if you can at all..They are finding reasons to fire people in retail as they downsize this segment of the business. Try selling someone a flip phone for 150$ with 80$ in accessories when they can go to costco and get it all for free, or even go to VZW online to get the same phone free. Like I said, used to be great, now not so much. Retail hours = lots of weekends and nights. Have to lie, screw over customers, and be a two-faced sleazy salesman if you want to get promoted. Did i mention you have to kiss a lot of a$$?

    Advice to Management

    Get off our a$$es! don't need to be micro managed after every sale . Senior management needs to stop reducing commissions as its destroying moral and causing reps to leave in droves. Not that it matters, its all churn an burn at the bottom levels, more $$ for the big dogs.
