    I worked at Wireless full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only pro about this company is Shawn Cunix ( Founder) who is a very inspirational person, however I don't think he realizes whats going on inside his company.

    Cons

    This is a company that will tell you what you want to hear to get you to work for them, and then you learn everything is different. You get thrown into a store with little to no training, and your expected to know everything. Also you are required to work over 40 hrs, but what they don't tell you is that when you go over 40 hrs, your pay rate is cut down to $4.25.

    Learn to properly train your employees and be up front and professional about the job

    I worked at Wireless full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It really depends on where you work. If you are on the front lines, it can be pretty rough (see cons section). If you are behind the scenes at corporate or management, then life can be much better. Only there do you experience any work-life balance or flexibility. Either way, there are ultimately lots of issues here. They do go for a family vibe at the company, but it isn't executed very well.

    Cons

    There seems to be an overall lack of leadership and guidance here. People never really know who is making the calls and from where. Communications just come through mass emails, there is no real communication and employees are rarely consulted in decision processes. The company values and mission are shoved in a book somewhere and have zero influence on what goes on everyday. The company seems to be very separated and people work in silos. The internal and external customer experience is not consistent because of lack of oversight. Training is overall on the weak side and there is absolutely no formal associate development after you are hired. The turnover is outrageous which makes life terrible for anybody that does stay. Management just wants to keep live bodies in the stores to drive some consistent sales, but they can't keep people because of all the issues they do not fix. There are very few developmental opportunities and those that do exist, do not really offer much in development, training, or raises, no investment in employee education (most companies offer tuition reimbursement to enhance their investment in employees). Mgmt can turn on you in a drop off a hat as well. People can get terminated without warning and it seems to just be allowed to happen. The promotional process is very undisclosed and it appears people are just promoted based on feel and with no regard to their actual human capacities to manage or lead. If they are hitting their numbers, they get promoted, there's no thought given to "values" or anything like that. If you do decide you want to achieve more and you put in extra hours, you are then compensated for overtime at half-pay. So why even put in extra time at all if that's your reward? Most companies will give time and a half at least. If you want to develop, you have no educational assistance, no ongoing training, and a poor half-pay incentive to put in extra hours, thus the majority of people don't go anywhere except back out the door they came in through. There are also very strange rules on PTO and very little schedule flexibility. The company picked the name Wireless probably to sound as close to Verizon Wireless as possible. If customers and job applicants actually knew that this was not a corporate store, I think they would avoid it altogether.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should hire more educated people with more well-rounded skills to lead their teams. They should also consider putting people from non-sales backgrounds in leadership or advisory positions. Sales people know how to drive sales, but that doesn't mean that are fit for senior leadership. They should invest in ONGOING training. Need to delegate more and get away from the founder-in-charge situation. Need to offer better benefits... employees should feel like you are investing in their future, if not, then they will not stay. Need better career opportunities, more training, tuition reimbursement. Need to revisit values and missions statements and adhere to them at all levels. Make them relevant or just get rid of them.

    Pros

    easy and not stressfull, laidback

    Cons

    pay is not only illegal you make 20-22k a year and are consistently lied to. It's not salary if you work 39 hrs and are docked for 10.60 an hr but if you work 45 as required only get 3.50 per hour extra. After being there you will see commision is a farse. They send out company wide emails no one ever hits you'll see. I think with 80 stores in the year I have been there 3 have hit goal ever. for like 600 per person

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The owner has said he wants to inspire happiness, but has been quoted saying he feels people are too lazy to look for another job
