    I have been working at Viaero Wireless full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Viaero is one of the few technology organizations employing folks within the footprint within they operate. They have an extremely strong network and are growing fast, allow for frequent internal advancement. The CEO is truly visionary in nature and I've found that the leadership team he has assembled are quite competent and enjoyable to work for. Culture is great and I've been given the opportunity and tools to succeed. Great benefits and wages too.

    Cons

    If in the field, drive time can add up as the footprint of operations is substantial. Travel can be tough, but company vehicles are always available, and the vehicle perk is a nice benefit so I can't complain.

    Advice to Management

    Good work in recognizing talent internally and allowing for vertical advancement for those that excel.

    Pros

    Young, energetic company on the path to becoming the leading Wireless carrier in the Region, with the best rates in the local market. Viaero does hire from within.

    Cons

    As with any retail position, there is a need to keep the local store staffed at all times, which entails some evening and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on providing consistent training of new hires, and offer periodic training to maximize the potential of existing employees.

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

    Pros

    Variety of work and responsibility. They have so much trouble getting and identifying talented people that anyone stuck there has a lot on their plate.

    Cons

    Working for unethical senior management. How ever desperate you may be, do NOT work in any capacity for this company. I would advise customers to stay away, but this company doesn't really have any. They may have a purpose related to money, but it isn't to make it. There are so many stories that should be told - tax evasion, fraud, secret accounts... All hiding at little old cellphone company in the middle of nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Walk away before someone in law enforcement starts looking at your company.

    Pros

    Great customer service. Great insurance benefits.

    Cons

    There are many fine and knowledgeable employees at this company. I absolutely enjoyed my employment here. The one down fall is that members of upper management do not listen to their employees when situations occur and make hasty decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. When an RSA says they are being stalked. Make sure your store managers know how to handle the situation, instead of telling the RSA it's her fault.

    I have been working at Viaero Wireless full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Money is great. Base pay may not be above average, but the commissions can be amazing if you work hard.

    Cons

    Training for a Retail Store Managers without any wireless experience is not very good. You are trained about the wireless industry mostly by the employees that you supervise. Also is very stressful, as you have to meet sales goals. Pressure to meet those goals is intense. Employees have to clean the building and the parking lot. Company is constantly changing the commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing the commission structure every quarter. Changes should be done once a year. Managers should train in store other than their own. First item learned should be the 12 point audit. Not 3 months down the road..
