    I worked at Verge Mobile full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Commission based job and always room to move up within the company

    Cons

    Not a very good work life balance. Too much is expected of you for the pay that you receive. You can work like a slave and still get no appreciation. Some current management above store managers are extremely childish and like to gossip a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what's going on in ALL your stores don't take your DM's word for it I would suggest to speak with your store management one on one.

    Pros

    Ok training, that's basically it

    Cons

    Extreme hours for management, you have to walk on eggshells with new ideas, if you attend school online don't tell them. They basically despise anyone who is black.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some morals

    Pros

    Small company and one can learn to grow in the wireless business. Room for advancement if one was to not go corporate route.

    Cons

    Life work balance really depends on who is your manager.

    Pros

    Bosses are nice, medical benefits but very high deductible, good hours and paid holidays

    Cons

    Medical benefits with very high deductible, only 1 week of vacation that has to be accrued with no sick or personal days, high turnover, and not much career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate and pay the employees well as there is a lot of job dissatisfaction and better organization

    I'm glad to see you feel leadership is good, so that's a positive.

    Sorry you feel that the benefits are not up to par. Looking at this post date, there have been several enhancements to the PTO

    Pros

    Fun environment and friendly employees
    Good compensation for good performers
    Recognition for high performance
    Owners are ethical and down to earth

    Cons

    I don't have bad things to say about the company. They are a growing company and because of that you have to be someone that can handle change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in the employees!

    Pros

    I really liked the people I worked with. Also, the company had contests and extra bonus and stuff to win. I won a Samung Galaxy S 4 and a $100 gift card

    Cons

    Sometime the computers are really slow and the printers stop working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to upgrade half of the computers.

    I worked at Verge Mobile full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Really easy to get a job..

    Cons

    You never know how much you will get paid. Commissions are never correct and basically you don't get paid as they tell you and show in their presentations. Their commission structure is just a gimmick. You find it when you finally start getting commissions in about 2-3 months.

    The commissions structure is not a Gimmick. People who perform well, make very good money here. It is true that low performers will not like the compensation plan, however moderate to high performers ... More
