    Pros

    Infinite opportunities for career growth.
    Emphasis on truly doing what is best for the customer.
    Big little company; nationwide with 100s of doors, but on any given day the President or VP may call you up to ask how they are doing
    Solid health, 401k, vacation package

    Cons

    Systems are still improving and can occasionally be a pain point

    Advice to Management

    Focus all of SHQ on supporting the field, there is no room for an is against them mentality, ever.

    Pros

    The people that work for WA are almost all dedicated professionals looking to drive the business forward.

    Cons

    Salaries are a bit on the lower end of the medium averages, benefits aren't that great, and the company moves so fast that documenting successful, repeatable processes can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time. The challenges we face are due to the industry we are in.

    Pros

    Commission sales, good earning potential with no degree, every day is different.

    Cons

    Standing for long periods of time. Interacting with the public can be rough some time.

    Advice to Management

    The systems used to process sales need a major refresh. They can bottleneck the sales process.

    Costco is a great enviroment

    Dated processes, all paper contracts, planogram not clear, management is poor

    Digitalize your contract processes, listen to your kiosk managers more.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling! Costco is closed on major holidays which means I get more time with my family. Direct and senior leadership care about you as an employee, but more importantly as a person.

    Cons

    I haven't found any yet.

    Pros

    Endless customer(Members) to sell to.

    Cons

    Systematic issues work in progress

    Advice to Management

    Integrate the Verification and customer paperwork into WA2GO to upgrade the efficiency factor. Assimilate all carrier paperwork as Verizon to eliminate errors. Direct Delivery should be more efficient and less time consuming to alleviate Member frustration on time.

    Pros

    A company that truly cares about its people, gives opportunities to grow and listens to the field to improve. A company that serves our wonderful and amazing Military families who serve us every single day. The sky is the limit with opportunities for those who join this leadership team, I started as a PT WSE in Costco in 2008 and have held 8 different positions in both channels, currently serving as the Regional Director for the West Military Region. Provides challenge and ability to earn the type of income YOU want to earn.

    Cons

    There are cons in every company, I choose to focus on the positives and things I can control.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the field and continue to narrow the focus to become the greatest company we can be with a clear vision! This company rocks!!!

    Senior management listens and is truly here to help every team member succeed. Great compensation package and benefits. I can honestly say I absolutely love my Job, the people I work with and Wireless Advocates!

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything! If I had to be picky I'd say not having sick time for field employees, but that's it.

    Advice to Management

    Excellent company to work for, so if you get the opportunity to get hired on......take it! It was the best career decision I've ever made!
