    Pros

    Great products that are in high demand. Good area network coverage in general. Convenient locations.

    Cons

    Store employees are micro managed and unrealistic sales quotas are expected. That being said, you won't get paid what you have been expecting. Read the fine print.... Just another Carrot on a Stick. Selling products, for example, like phones, screen protectors, cases, and car charger packages are considered a given sale and Not recognized as being productive enough. If you're not selling Home phone connect, Blue Tooth Speakers, Wi-Fi Hot Spot devices, or expensive Data plan "NEW Lines", on top of phone sales, you're Not selling enough!. Managers act inconvenienced when asked for assistance. New Associates are expected to know the POS System right out of training, which is virtually impossible because of it's vast size, nature, and complexity of the system. Additionally, it is frowned upon when an Associate asks Management for assistance, as if they are too important to be bothered. Hello!, That's why you are there! Not to stand around like the CEO and try to look important. These stores have an extremely High turn over rate and burn through employees like there is an endless supply of people to work there. Sorry!, you're Not Apple or Google so get over yourselves. Managers are also very young and immature leaders which equals "Low Morale", "Failure", and "Lost Sales." Would Not recommend working here if you're looking for long term career. You've been warned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store Managers need to be working Managers and actively assist the team to reach goals, answer questions, no matter how trivial, and be available at all times during store hours. Larger stores with high volume have plenty of managers on the floor at any given time. Additionally, if you are going to promote immature leaders, at least make sure Managers know that they are not above being a working manager on the floor.
