    I worked at Sprint full-time

    Pros

    Always a great team mentality, learning and development is important for the brand and there's a 'door is always open' approach when you need guidance or have questions

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard to justify sprint as a brand to customers because of the negative opinions and publicity that has surrounded it in previous years.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure knowledgeable staff are on your sales floor and as soon as there is a new offer, no-one should clock in until the can answer all the basic questions or at least know where they can find the answers.

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

    Pros

    I have been working for Sprint for a little over two years now. This company has great benefits as well as a decent hourly pay. Sprint is a commissioned based company. Ton of people who walk through the door who want to switch carriers. When times are slow, you will need to focus on driving your own leads and following up with previous leads. If you work hard, you can make good money commission wise.

    Cons

    Within the 2+ years I have worked here, I have seen the commission structure change numerous times. If you have difficulty changing your selling tactics to fit the needs of the company, this might not be the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would to look within the company to promote, rather then hiring new managers who do not know how to run the company the way you have designed it to be run. Have seen multiple new managers who are having to be trained by staff and still do not have the capability to be a good manager.
