    I worked at Telefónica full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It has to be the people if you're lucky enough to get a store where everyone supports each other each day is a pleasure. I've made life long friends and I looked forward to every day. No matter how hard things became you had people to guide you and help you.

    Cons

    If you work for a franchise you are paid less, you have more pressure and things can change very quickly. If you work for the retail non franchise you have better conditions of work. The prices are not competitive compared to other similar companies and they need to get rid of add ones and focus on the core product.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same, don't have favourites and give more time for the reps from phone companies to show us features and benefits of the handsets we sell.
