    I worked at Spring Mobile full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Co-workers and managers genuinely care about you.
    - Had a small company feel.
    - The CEO is a great business leader and he did the very best job possible under the circumstances. The VP of sales is amazing too.

    Cons

    The pros outweigh the cons but every company has cons.

    - Boring industry. This is still retail.
    - The nepotism got kind of old. There are so many spouses and siblings in leadership roles.
    - Spring Mobile was caught in the corporate crossfire between AT&T and GameStop causing management to lose a lot of control.
    - It was frustrating to see lucrative corporate positions created for burned out/laid off sales guys but there were no promotional opportunities for anyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with the new ownership.

    I have been working at Spring Mobile full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    working at spring mobile is quite fun because you can work at your own pace growing your book of business. There are many tools to succeed but you have to pick up the phone and call, Email and make sure to follow up.
    1. EMAIL! EMAIL! EMAIL! start getting lists of peoples names and start email blasting every day.
    2. Make connections with Fleetcomplete, Workforce manager, and ATT CSE( business team)
    3. don't get discouraged when you start and don't get anything for about 3 months. it takes time but some people just get lucky and some don't.
    4. Know your product!
    5. Have good relationships with the stores that you're given! they can provide great leads

    Cons

    some management just plain old isn't involved, but some are. Some people in the stores just hate their job and don't care. Some of these customers "don't trust you" since your not actual Att, This was the hardest part but easily overcome by telling them you can save them money (most of the time)

    Advice to Management

    none, keep up the good work

    I worked at Spring Mobile full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It once had a great culture and a family atmosphere. It was lost in the past couple years but with the right people it could return.

    Cons

    Politic heavy. Tenured quality performing employees get passed up for promotions by poor leaders that don't understand the Authorized Retail industry. Shot staffing stores and you have no life if you are a Store Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your stores, put people who know the business in District or Regional Manager roles. Not your buddies or someone from the outside who looks good in a sport coat. Staff your stores as well. Skeleton crews kills morale when the top level people should be the ones sacrificing pay to afford to staff stores. If the stores can't take care of their customers because there's no bodies, someone else will.

    Pros

    Great pay if you take the time to understand it so you can maximize it. Friendly people for the most part, and work life balance is great! Plus discounts on cell phone bill are nice!

    Cons

    From reading all the negativity on here it makes me wonder if people actually want to do things for themselves or just expect everyone else to do it for them? Yes, the training could be better, yes the communication could be better, yes I don't like seeing 15 emails a day, it can get somewhat ridiculous. But the GOOD heavily outweighs the BAD! Maybe I am lucky with the Manager, DM, and leadership I have, but I have a hard time believing its soooo bad all over the country. You get out what you put in and I bet most of the bad reviews come from lazy people who expect every job to be Mon-Fri and want to make 150k a year for working the minimum. Drives me nuts!

    Advice to Management

    Lets get the training systems more stream lined as a lot of new hires coming in driving blind for a while, and when the stores are short staffed or busy, training can quickly become tough. Go back to the group online training videos for 2 hours a day. Those greatly benefited me and others I know as well!
