    Okay Company

    Pros

    Flexible schedule mostly. Commission is okay when sales are good.

    Cons

    You have to stand all day long. It only pays minimum wage and they push you to sell more phones to make up the difference to earn more money. If your store isn’t busy and you don’t perform well you get told you are horrible and threaten to fire you. Managers get bonuses for all the work sales reps do, but the reps get no bonuses so there is no real incentive to do better other than commission.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, Decent commission, chill work environment

    Bad hours, doing way more than a sales associate normally does and paid much less than they should because of “possible commission”, very little room for growth

    Commission Structure is horrible.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling Costco members are usually nice to work with. Compared to an indirect retailer.

    Cons

    Seems to be a very common reoccurring review that the commission structure is not set up for anyone to make money but the company. If you don’t sell about 2-4 phones on average for every 8 hours you work them you flat out do NOT make any commission. So if you have a bad day or a slow day at work you have to constantly dig yourself out of a hole for the rest of the month. Hoping you don’t have another day like that in a month. GOD FORBID. They will tell you you make $50 at least off of a phone sale, but you’ll never see it. Even in your first month you’re expected to sell the same amount as someone who’s had experience with the company. The way it is set up you are better off just not clocking in and only clocking in whenever you are actually working on a sale. The hourly is not worth it and it’s sad that most likely that’s all you will be getting paid. The commission structure is set up the same for stores that are in huge traffic areas or not. If you are located in a major US city you will do just fine. If you are not you will not make any commission. For example a store located in Chicago is expected to do the same volume as a store located in a town of 100,000 population.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule if there's coverage

    Cons

    After being one of the top sales employees in the district, for almost two years, they removed the comission from my pay. I lost an average of $10 per hour, from my paycheck. Yet my job responsibilities didn't change. They are also very understaffed. I had to work 6-7days per week, most weeks and often open to close. Employees are not trained properly. The company has a sink or swim mentality, when it comes to training. They do not respect their employees.
