I have been working at Cellular Sales full-time

Pros

Little micromanagement, highest contract commissions in the wireless business, great facilities and operations support, flexible hours if you're a student

Cons

100% commission can be tough, competing with Verizon and other retailers can also be tough sometimes

Advice to Management

You're hiring twenty-somethings with little to no professional experience. You have an opportunity to groom them to be great sales professionals, but you have to be willing to invest in them and challenge them to meet their sales goals.

    I worked at Cellular Sales full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of money during the holiday months. Going to different stores gives you an opportunity to meet new people, see different things.

    Cons

    Benefits for a company that consists of 3500+ employees is unacceptable. Paid $1000/month for health care that covered nothing, and had high co pays. Always paying out of pocket for things "not in network". Deacts (customers not paying bill through 6 months, service deactivated) Cost the average rep $450-1000 per month out of your paycheck.. So calculate the taxes,healthcare,deacts and your check is anywhere from $1900-3500 less than expected. But since you are 100% commission, there is no loss for them. Also, the Salesteam leaders, and GM also pick favorites they work the good shifts, then make the top goals leading them to forever get the best shifts. Also they change the standards EVERY month or other month. This leads to employees not meeting goals, getting written up and fired. The company is a "retailer" yet they are enforcing minimum standards similar to the corporate locations. The HR department is a joke, and outside of your mgmt good luck getting anything accomplished. leading up to 2012 it was 1099 only and you were hired on contract. Ask me how I know all this. Lets just say I spent a lot of time pretty high on the totem pole.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism. Reduce the deacts. fix the benefits for crying out loud.
