Perks for doing a good job like commission's, free phones, points to spend on things you can buy.

Seldom and little pay raises,
No year end bonus of any kind
Have to wait long for popular phones you want to have to do your job better.

Advice to Management

Please work to making employees happier from little things like better pay or having more staff on hand to help our customers. Lets learn from the mistakes that Circuit City went through

    I worked at Sprint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nextel was always an collaborative atmosphere. Sprint folks really do not care about team-work. Sprint does tell you what to expect. The company is honest. Even if the honesty is, "We just don't have the support avail that you need to help you."

    Cons

    Sprint is VERY management heavy! Any more VPs and Directors and no one would get anything done. And the groups certainly do not talk to one another. It is really a shame. If they would get ride of the many layers of management and work with sales teams and really care about the customer....it would be a great place to be. I just had to leave. The work place was so very negative.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of soooo many levels of management and get back to the grass roots that grew a company like Nextel! One manager certainly does NOT know what the other team is doing.


  2. "Opportunity to bank as a Retail Sales Consultant but Company is always trying to cut commission margins."

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

    Pros

    * Make over $40k as retail associate (more than most managers).
    * Free employee line with special pricing on handsets
    * Easy environment to work in.

    Cons

    * Competitors pay more and have better service
    * Every year the health insurance gets worst
    * Whenever a new phone comes out (specially apple products) employees have to wait months to get it, even if willing to pay full price for them (Still not able to get an iPhone 5..)

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to cut the profit margins of retail reps (diminishing % on accessories sold, giving crazy quotas to meet)
