    I worked at Parrot Cellular

    Pros

    Hourly plus commission. Can make good money for being in school.

    Cons

    You get really high sales quotes. If you don't hit it they write you up but do not give you any training or feedback. the management does not support the employees. They will toss you under the bus if they don't like you. If they do like you they will have your back even if you commit fraud and there is proof against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold every one to the same standers.

    I have been working at Parrot Cellular part-time

    Pros

    Work on commission in relatively busy stores, good sales people can average $16+ an hour

    Cons

    Have to work with AT&T systems and personnel on a day-to-day basis, tend to be frustrating to deal with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing an awesome job, managers are well-positioned and able to give good feedback. Quotas tend to be on the unreasonable side, fulfilling them is as much luck as it is skill most months
