    Pros

    Plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    Extremely limited advancement and salaries that are way behind the times. Your spouse had better have a full time job.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your dedicated employees before they go elsewhere now that good paying jobs are coming back.

    I worked at Wireless Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We learned about technology but Verizon partners lacked time and dedication to authorized dealers. Unprofessional account managers from Verizon Corp side.

    Cons

    Stores were given unattainable goals so we never received bonuses. We would almost bonus and our compensation plan was changed. All had the feeling senior management were cheating us out of our compensation.

    I worked at Wireless Communications (More than a year)

    Pros

    ummmm....Plenty of time to work on homework and whatever else?

    Cons

    Too many to mention; items being sold to customers are not purchased by the company so everything is special order, the company has no organization nor structure, they staff the stores with only one person for months at a time, not to mention the pay is worse than a Target cashier.

    Advice to Management

    Shut it down

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. If you are a full time student they try to work around your school schedule.

    Cons

    Everything here is sales driven so you got to be able to sale!!!

    Advice to Management

    Management team awesome coaches and trainers!!!

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

    Pros

    Will give you sales experience, benefits and opportunity

    Cons

    Pay is really bad unless you are in a higher producing store. Lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    If Wireless Communications is ever going to be a legitimate company you will have to quit letting your employees take financial responsibility for an industry problem and figure out a way to give a pay scale that can keep high quality workers not just young adults who can use this job to prepare them for a real job.

    I have been working at Wireless Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on a wireless network without having to deal with a in your face customer everyday makes my job rewarding. Even though what I do serves the customer everyday. Performance driven company that looks to all employees to make the business better by personal contributions. Pay for performance company.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company is moving so fast they don't really care what you have done, but only what you can do. If you are not shaking and baking they will pass you by for someone else who is saying or doing the right things. Never a chance to go on cruise control and enjoy the success of what you have accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to always sell the company or make headlines and concentrate on making the company the best place to work.

    I have been working at Wireless Communications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can learn the wireless industry. Flexible schedule. Great for college kids

    Cons

    Many days you work for free because you do not get hourly plus commission. You can spend all day helping customers but if you don't make a sale, you get paid nothing for an entire 8 hour day. Upper management cares ONLY about their bottom line and places industry losses on the shoulders of the sales team by taking from your paycheck

    Advice to Management

    You need to realize that your sales team are the ones making you a lot of money and keeping you in business. If you want high schoolers instead of professionals in your stores, then that's what you will get

  8. "Too many expectations, too little pay"

    Pros

    Some of the management are actually good teachers and want to better equip their employees. You will get a lot of hands on knowledge of how phones work.

    Cons

    The company wants to make money as a bottom line, so they make the minimums to be able to meet commission impossible. Employees are encouraged to work overtime and on their days off; all for minimum wage. And most of the managers are unqualified and unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees.

    Pros

    The pay can be very good, if you know what you're doing. Support is given as well as praises for a good job. Benefits are not bad

    Cons

    The hours, upper management, I felt many times that they short changed me on my pay as well as commission pay out. Be very careful with your money here! Look over ever detail on your pay stu (if you even get it).

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees better! Do anonymous surverys, address them. Be clear with changes made about pay and ensure these changes are beig communicated effectively throught the company. Show those who are valuable to you how much you appreciate them. They are your back bone. They're going to keep leaving if you don't take care of them. Other companies are out there and will more than likely take care of them better than you are!
