    I worked at Parrot Cellular full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to make good money is there. Being its a cell phone store, customers go in there for one thing to purchase a phone!! If you enjoy it which I did you will always hit your goals, meet customers who become lifelong friends even.

    Cons

    NO Room for growth! The manager is horrible! On several occasions she would be helping her own customer while listening to your conversation with your customer and yell and put in her opinion. Not only extremely embarrassing but also very unprofessional! If you're able to tune out a manager like her than you would be fine and again make a decent amount of money.

    Pros

    If you're a people person this is a excellent place to work! Helping people is the best part of the job and the hours are good. You can make very good money a hourly pay and a commission just meet your quotas which is easy if your a people person!

    Cons

    You work every holiday and it makes it hard for when there are no customers and phones aren't ringing. The store would be spotless however still had all day to go... Makes for an extremely long day.

    Advice to Management

    The manager was rude at times. Unfortunately she brought her personal problems to work if she had a bad day all us had a bad day. She would also interfere when we (employees) were helping customers that was extremely embarrassing and rude! She needs to keep her personal business where it belongs and NOT at work!

    I have been working at Parrot Cellular full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Have decent benefits
    Pay incentives are fantastic
    Company culture was supportive
    Access to new cellphone devices
    Company discount was awesome as well

    Cons

    If you consider this a con, you really have to bust your butt to earn your money, otherwise just stick to a minimum wage job. If you are not performing, you only have 3 chances then you are out.

    Advice to Management

    Management could be improved by providing incentives rather than taunting what will happen if you do not sell and/or meet your monthly quota.

    Pros

    Hourly plus commission. Can make good money for being in school.

    Cons

    You get really high sales quotes. If you don't hit it they write you up but do not give you any training or feedback. the management does not support the employees. They will toss you under the bus if they don't like you. If they do like you they will have your back even if you commit fraud and there is proof against you.

    Advice to Management

    Hold every one to the same standers.
