Pros: see list

A Wireless has severe growing pains a company that's basically buying up a bunch of dealers to form this organization. I am not going to give specific names, procedures, or exact details (start dates, current employee or not, departure dates, location, goals or numbers) to protect my identity but this is a general parameter I can work with. Now before reading all of this realize I have been in the business several years and adapt to change well, this job is ideal for someone who has an additional bread winner in the residence because you simply cannot make it. I want to help anyone who is interested in working here.
*Compensation plan is changed regularly if not every 2 weeks... every month and these changes are dramatic
*You absolutely do not know what the next commission change will look like. Forget being able to budget your life.
*Upper management can be quite condescending and arrogant. They seem to forget the small guys on their sales floors are what is making that company money. Emails are not empowering.
*You will NOT be able to make decent money with this company unless you push out an unrealistic number of boxes every 2 weeks and work 6-7 days a week. When I say decent I mean above $43k
*Work life balance is god awful. 2 pay periods a month means 2 quotas. Be prepared for high stress and intense atmosphere until you get burned out and move on.
*You have to sell many accessories in order to make your goal. Easy enough right?... pricing is beyond higher than other retail outlets in many cases by $20+ Its not just a matter of selling a car charger and a case – more... kind of deal. You literally will need to sell 4 or more items per phone at full retail price. There are always those few customers you don't have that success with and this penalizes you substantially in your compensation they essentially ding your commission.
*Employee discounts are near non existent, a customer can score a better deal than you can.
*Retail hours and working some holidays.
*Paid every 2 weeks commission and hourly
*Quick response for any questions or problems
*Very structured inventory and reordering system
Run away from this company. You have to take care of your people. You can work 2/3 less as hard somewhere else and make the same amount of money. – less
