    I worked at Clearwire full-time

    Pros

    I had an opportunity to run the market and learn a lot about contracts and starting a market.

    Cons

    They weren't prepared and pretty much locked out from signing other dealers in the area and this made it hard for them to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    better research on the market before opening in any area

    I worked at Clearwire part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy hours at multiple locations. If you are good at approaching strangers and trying to sell them. Then this is the job for you. The best part is that this is a good product that you won't mind selling.

    Cons

    As with any sales jobs quotas need to be met and they are strict on them. One con is that you work out of Best Buy stores so you never really know week to week which store they will station you at. Also working at a Best Buy sometime you get caught in the trap of helping out a customer when the Best buy employees should be doing that .

    Pros

    The pay was great, they started you out to succeed with ramp up months. They had a great training program

    Cons

    My manager managed by fear of losing your job. Which isn't they way I think you should manage people.. High stress

    Advice to Management

    Don't manage by fear
    Quit changing the pay scale
    It seemed like every 6 months y'all were changing the past and it was never for the better
