Flexible schedule with good retail hours and shorter days on Sat and Sun. Commission/ bonuses in addition to a base pay.
Requires standing for long periods of time. A lot of learning curve to catch up with the wireless industry.

Flexible schedule if there's coverage
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.2

Great flexibility with scheduling and over all enjoyable learning experience.
Constantly changing commission scales, rarely for the better.

Depending on the Kiosk Manager there is an opportunity to have a very flexible schedule at Wireless Advocates. It's a good first job out of high school or for a college student.
Kiosk Management duties really don't differ from WSE duties however the pay sure does. The company does not value higher education. In my region I never once had heard of a KM or DM that had any level of higher education. This creates an unprofessional environment with the leadership of WSE due to qualities and skills are assumed by merit of years spent at WSE and nothing else. Traveling District Managers create an awkward relationship of trust due to lying about spying on WSE employees. Wireless Advocates has an 80% churn rate.

I love the flexible schedule and how you have all the carriers to sell to.good company' to work for.you have your own goals that you can achieve
The pay has decreased over 2 years.if they increase the pay then this would be the perfect job to work at

Great commission structure and plenty of incentives and the easiest sales goals in the wireless industry. Positioned inside the 2nd best retailer in the united states so there is plenty of traffic for lots of $$$. If you work under a leader who knows how to develop you then you will not only make money but you will become closer to mastering the skills of a wireless sales expert.
Flexibility of schedules are tight. If you fall under a bad manager then the job becomes very difficult if they do not know how to coach you to success. Poor worklife balance due to having to communicate with kiosk on days off from manager up. Does not apply to sales reps.

Flexible scheduling if your kiosk is staffed Good pay
High turnover among employees Very Isolated sometimes being off main isles

Fast money for those who can pick up on the different offers by each carrier
upper management is terrible. Too busy micro managing via text messages rather than speaking to people face to face or even over the phone. Schedule is not flexible if your location is under staffed which is the case 90% of the time. Unrealistic expectations are set for everyone. Pay scale sucks and never benefits WSE's but always the managers.3

Flexible schedules and decent pays
Upper management is horrible, uncaring and unorganized. To them, you are just replaceable any time.
- 2.0May 20, 2015WSE Wireless Sales ExpertFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsPoway, CA
Flexible hours and works with your school schedule.
Poor training, poor management, company that only cares about results and not the customers, to make the most money you have to work late shifts and weekends, huge cuts in commission.2
