    I worked at Wireless To Go full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Different approaches to selling, full time so hours are there.

    Cons

    Upper management treats you like you're nothing. If you get into management they don't train you at all!! They push you to sell to people you sold to two days ago, the upper management literally tells you to sell because their birthday is coming up and they need money for it. The money is absolutely not worth it whatsoever, you have to hit 36 new lines before making $6 per box, YES, SIX DOLLARS, anything before that is either $2 or $4 dollars per box, Other third parties give you WAY more money for your hard work, I know that because I worked for a different third party that treated me wonderfully and paid me great money for my hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't insult your employee's and make them feel like trash, upper management shouldn't be that unprofessional and say disgusting things to people, also, begging your customers to buy something from you because you need to make money is highly unprofessional and makes you look like you're that terrible at your job that you have to literally BEG people to buy something, the insulting of customers that don't want to partake in a promotion is also disgusting. Pay your employee's more per box and maybe they'll work harder. Train your employee's and maybe they'll stick around as well. Also, you probably shouldn't tell your entire company that we're selling for YOUR BIRTHDAY.

    Pros

    Great group of people and mentorship for new brokers.

    Cons

    Costs of running real estate are very high.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to get new brokers up and running, cut them a break on some of the costs incurred.

    Pros

    Not a single one. If you see this company with a job posting in your area for the love of all things good just keep moving.

    Cons

    Far too numerous to name in a simple review. Upper management is completely incompetent. They pass themselves off as corporate Sprint through their in store signage (no 'wireless to go' logos at all). In reality they're a scummy third party dealer who couldn't manage a group of employees to save their lives. They pay a fraction of what an actual Sprint store would pay you, give you little to no training and if you're not performing up to their expectations (they give you no actual sales numbers to meet outside of whatever they have in their heads) they cut you lose after a month or two and continue on the hiring treadmill. They claim to offer paid vacation (which you find out is only available to you after a year of employment, and no one in the company outside of upper management has been here that long) and the health insurance they offer is a complete rip off. The list goes on and on. Simply put, please avoid this company at all costs, anything else would be a better career move.

    Advice to Management

    Just stop.

    Pros

    Lots of hours, Easy Job, Great atmosphere in Dayton Mall, Satisfaction in helping customers find what they can find elsewhere. Employee Discounts

    Cons

    Horrible management, Improper ethics, Encourage employees to rip off customers any chance that comes up. Slow business during summer time. Pressure to "make it happen".
    Micro Managment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying employees and let them sell products with their own personality. Keep to crude comments to your self before you get a sexual harassment suit against you.

    Pros

    For the most part, you're left alone in the store to take care of things on your own. Very little interference from management.

    Cons

    They pass themselves off as part of Sprint, when they are in fact an independent third party dealer. The pay is horrible and management expects you to "do your part" by working at various stores around the Puget Sound area. "Training" is practically nonexistant, and new employees are left to figure things out on their own.

    Advice to Management

    If you want top caliber talent working for you, you need to pay a competitive wage. With zero benefits, half the wage of an actual sprint store, and incompetent management, it's no wonder you can't seem to hold onto your employees for longer than a few months.
