    I worked at Cellular World full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with some amazing people who needed a job just like me.

    Cons

    The company cares only about profits. They don't care about lower level management. They don't care about sales reps. And they certainly don't care about their customers.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training your managers and reps to take good care of your customers and you won't have to continually be searching for the next great hire.

    I worked at Cellular World full-time

    Pros

    Good work environment for entry level sales. Company ran like a small business and encouraged ethical practices.

    Cons

    Needed structure for sales organization to improve production. Training program was lacking internally and relied on store leadership which led to inconsistant results.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in developing company culture, training and development programs to keep top talent.

    I worked at Cellular World (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the customers and the experience of selling a number of products. The location I was in had decent traffic, but it was easy to get add ons.

    Cons

    They will short you if they get the opportunity. Managers only get $5 an hour after 40 hours, and they will steal your last month's bonus if you put in your 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your customers and employees and stop looking at them as dollar signs. At least act like you care about others.

    Perks when it comes to bonus and commission.

    Cons

    More training for some workers to make sure everyone is on a even playing field.

    More training for managers

    I worked at Cellular World part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Commission is unlimited and can help a lot.

    Cons

    Management never seemed to understand that a low traffic store with the same customers coming in for service/bill pay will not produce high numbers compared to another store in a newly developing area.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of and motivate your workers. Don't assume they "get the idea" and expect too much out of them. It's a team environment not a single salesperson environment.

    Pros

    Good people. Nice environment. Management supports you and wants you to succeed. Decent discounts for employees

    The pay is unreliable. Strict goals that focus on making profit in short terms and doesn't focus on long term. Limited growth opportunities. Customers blame you for AT&Ts problems
