    Mismangement, The pay structure is bad, no benefits. If you are a woman or minority forget moving up past a store manager.

    Pros

    Okay pay if you are the best in your store and you have a high traffic store
    Fun work environment, laid back, good times

    Cons

    Lot of micro managing
    If youre in a low traffic store, expect to make no money
    Commission structure constantly changed, to worse and worse structures.
    Ultimately making it harder to make good money

    I worked at Planet Cellular full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone was very helpful had a team mentality. Good company values. Good training, both with Planet and AT&T. Manager was fair, honest and really cared about his employees. Our AT&T rep was awesome. Shift length reasonable given it is retail. Not being open on Sundays was great! Good place for someone who wants to learn the business.

    Cons

    Low volume store made it difficult to make budget. Store was old and dirty. Very little money put into updating store (others locations were better). No advertising to make store known in community. Low commissions.
