    I have been working at GoWireless full-time

    Pros

    Where do I start? I manage 5 stores and make over 100k a year. I receive constant communication from my Sales Director of performance, changes, updates, etc. I am in a great working environment where I feel I can reach out to Upper Management for anything I need. All of my peers are competitive, yet supportive. In my personal life, I have a family, and I am able to provide them with a better life than I had when I was young and also give them the time they deserve due to my flexible schedule. The job can be difficult at times but is very rewarding. You just have to work hard and hit the goals that are given to you.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I can think of at this very moment.

    Pros

    Nice stores, good benefits, company still growing. Training is good when you begin and uniforms etc are nice to get you set up professionally.

    Cons

    Field leaders above DM micromanage too much. Much pressure for performance in saturated market.

    Advice to Management

    Remove layers between DM and HQ. Trust people more. Believe in the best in people and show it. Make words match deeds.

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

    Pros

    Decent money if you are good at sales

    Cons

    Didn't feel like upper management valued it's lower level employees. Several pay cuts in the years I worked, causing my salary to drop about 40%

    Advice to Management

    Your low level sales team are the reason GoWireless does well, treat them with the respect and salary they deserve.

    I worked at GoWireless full-time

    Pros

    It's a job, paid every friday.

    Cons

    The store was over staffed so we would never meet sales goal, seeing as how we were in such a small town. Way too much down time.

    I worked at GoWireless full-time

    Pros

    Control your paycheck, paid time off that's almost impossible to use without killing a whole commission period

    Cons

    Comp plan got squeezed so hard that you're working minimum wage unless you're in a high volume location, which there's plenty of money to be made if you are

    Pros

    Paid Frequently and inventory for my location was decent

    Cons

    Micromanagement, work hard and make no money or work hard and make a little money....my company was bought out in an acquisition and my pay has decreased but increased in responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    develop a pay structure thats is more than fair for the tougher markets

    I have been working at GoWireless full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hourly pay has been good. I'm paid $10 an hour, 40 hours a week plus commission. The company bought out the company I had been working for. Sometimes they offer very good sales. 30 minute lunch brakes are mandatory for every shift.

    Cons

    If you don't hit at $19,990 point GP for the month you will be written up, if that happens 3 months in a row they can let you go. The computers and tablets they provide for you to use are out of date, slow, glitchy, malfunctioning. They don't provide enough inventory so that you can sell as much as they want you to. They don't tell you in advance of promotions so that you can sell on them. Daily phone inventory and weekly accessory inventory has to be done by hand, you can not scan the inventory. Which means everyday you have to check by hand every phone IMEI number. And weekly you have to count by hand all accessories in the store. Most people don't stay with the company long enough to know how to do their distinguished jobs, so most employees are not well trained.

    Great culture. Leadership is willing to listen to recommendations from employees. Love my team!

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any. Best company I have ever worked for. Seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on with the culture. Love the atmosphere and the direction the company is headed! I absolutely love working at Go!
