    Pros

    Uncapped commission and good management

    coverage is not good so you loose about 10 sales a day on coverage alone plus alot of people cancel which then takes away from your pay

    Mike Soto(GM) is a good guy and he would give you the shirt off of his back.. Need more of him.

    I have been working at Clearwire part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount for Clear service.

    Very hands on. You conduct and push sales with your own hand and approach. (While abiding by Best Buy's standards)

    Very low stress.

    Okay pay for a starter level sales job. Hourly as wells as commission.

    Cons

    Very unstructured. Not a lot of connection to management or any of the other representatives in your market. In 2 months I've probably seen my boss in person 3 times.

    Contract employment. Your employment is managed through a sales solution website and have a less than permanent career spot.

    Hours suffer heavily in times of bad sales.

    Advice to Management

    Very positively, you give the sales reps a lot of freedom to conduct business how they choose so long as it's not conflicting to Best Buy. However, management needs a lot more staff. It also needs more people for correspondence. It's not always easy to get a hold of someone, at least in the shadow of your markets.


  9. "No love for small cities."

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

    Pros

    Ok wage for the area. Good training.

    Cons

    I worked in a small city. Our main office was 30 miles away in Lewiston, ID and we were pretty much left on our own to run a kiosk in the Palouse Mall. The kiosk failed shortly after I got there. Their goals were unrealistic for a city the size of Moscow.

    I have been working at Clearwire full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many pros to working at Clearwire. The first that comes to mind are the people and the culture. I have never worked with such friendly and helpful colleagues. Everyone knows the company's goals and works towards them.
    I also love the fact that the company works on technology that no other company in the US is working on. This is a great point of pride for me - our TD LTE network we are building.
    Entrepreneurial spirit is another reason I have stayed at Clearwire. No one sticks to their job description here - there are always projects and cross functional exposure to be had.

    Cons

    I think our weakness is also what makes us so great. Our biggest weakness has always been a lack of funding, but I also think that is what keeps us sharp as we continue to do more with less.
