    Pros

    Weekly pay is nice
    Dress code is relaxed

    Cons

    They mostly highway 20 to 22-year-olds and expect them to run the location like an adult with minimal training. It’s funny because management will typically bring down your neck no matter what district and no matter what region. The company acts like they care about you but every chance they get to express how much they love you all they can do is talk about how awesome their CEO is. Management never gives any helpful tools but instead just expects that if they keep pounding down your throat that eventually something will go right

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to look around at its culture And honestly come to the conclusion that it’s more about the customer and their needs and less about efficiency. Or at the very least if you’re going to say that they need to do it

    Pros

    Growing organization that could lead to career growth and sustainability for the right person.

    Cons

    When they buyout companies and take over they have lack of leadership involvement. Constantly changing pay structures which lead to turnover at the time.

    Pros

    Discounts on your phone plan and accessories

    Cons

    Commission structure constantly changes and often has grossly unrealistic goals.
    Company shutters stores with little notice (5 days) and without even attempting to relocate staff.
    No respect for work/life balance.
    Terrible communication from upper management to stores complete with unrealistic expectations and harsh penalties.
    No advancement opportunities, especially as positions continually get eliminated.
    Paltry compensation (low wages, low PTO, expensive and low-quality health coverage)

    Advice to Management

    Pack it in, boys. You're just embarrassing yourselves now.

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

    Pros

    -the open schedule was the only pro

    Cons

    I worked in management at the corporate office for six years...
    The executives are all white men in their fifties that went to college together (frequently take trips to the bunny ranch and several Vegas strip clubs while they pay their employees less than a living wage.)
    - there's no sick leave...yes, that's right. If you're sick and you don't have PTO, tough luck.
    - salaries are terrible and well below market value

    This is basically a glorified mom and pop shop that got big and bit off more than it could chew. Steer clear from this place. The money goes right to the top (extravagant trips and big bonuses) while the workers get the crumbs.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a fair, market value wage and offer sick leave.
