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

    Pros

    This is a very honest and driven company lead by people that are family focused. This company drives its employees to their full potential by asking them to do their best every day. They challenge the employees but set realistic expectations. We work in partnership with Costco and strive to be member obsessed in all that we do. We work with all 4 Major Carriers and drive high sales volumes through competitive offers. We offer member exclusive benefits and policies designed to enhance the member experience. If you're excited about helping members and you are an active and engaging person that is focused on making the day happen....rather than waiting for it to develop...you'll be highly successful. Those that wait....should do so somewhere else as this is a company that wants and expects your Best Efforts daily. Anything less...just isn't a right fit.

    Cons

    Unfortunately we cannot currently advertise our great company, partnerships, and benefits externally as we work inside of Costco. This could drive better visibility to our benefits and quality of service commitments.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to work with Costco to allow us to advertise....."Inside of Costco" externally and to share the great things that we currently do.
