RETAIL SALES CONSULTANT (Current Employee) – Springfield, MO – September 18, 2017
I think the overall company is solid, but poorly run. Micromanaged tightly. You will work almost every weekend. The store I was based out of was in the mall so you had to work mall hours, so if the mall was open the store has to be open.

They provided lunches and outings, not much to say about this company I didn't really care too much for this particular store , the manage had just been promoted and he hired his mistress end of story while his wife worked at another location
Mobile Phone Handset Technician (Former Employee) – Broken Arrow, OK – May 19, 2017
I have several disabilities some physical some mental due to an accident that left me with traumatic brain injury and loss of vision in one eye.
The reason I stated the above is I have to have certain things a certain way such as we were allowed to wear shorts and t-shirts due to most of the work area was an unconditioned warehouse. I have to have white t-shirts and gray or blue shorts like I said above I can not help this need/compulsion due to the TBI. So management and others such as actual employees since I was a temp made complaints about how I wore the same clothes everyday, did not bathe or have "normal" people hygiene, these came from employees and management in the only air conditioned part of the warehouse (big enough for 4 workbenches and 10-15 working at those and 5 offices for senior management. I did not smell good this is most likely true, I worked in an open air warehouse during the summer.
So discrimination against the disabled and dirty from the work environment itself
You must be joking.
The most hostile work environment I have even been in.
Business Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – May 15, 2017
This is a great company if you have no need to be trained properly for the job they are asking you to perform. Accountability seems to go as far as the employees but management seems to be above making sure the employees have the tools for success in the direct channel.
Productive and entertaining workplace with good morale
Retail Wireless Consultant (Former Employee) – Onalaska, WI – May 14, 2017
In a typical day at work you will work with approx. 7-10 customers. You will troubleshoot cell phones/tablets, and look for sales opportunities. I learned how cell phone operating systems work. I learned key sales behaviors that I will be able to implement in future jobs. The management is helpful. They always make an effort to give you the tools required to resolve anything you might encounter that day. The workplace culture is mixed, but mostly positive. There are quotas, and people who struggle to get to those goals are easily discouraged. This usually manifests in break-room venting that never reached toxic. The hardest part of the job can be reaching the quotas. There are often people who fall into a lucky transaction that can carry them through their whole month which is often frustrating. It can feel like your effort isn't worth it. The most enjoyable part of the job is working on/resolving somebody's problem. The gratitude people show when they're presented with a solution to all of their problems is very uplifting.

US Cellular places a high degree of importance on developing leadership excellence. This works to create a culture that fosters employee development and work-life balance. My time at US Cellular has taught me what being a leader is really about.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – May 2, 2017
I loved working here, some management is just not deserving of the title. Most coaches are there to better you but there are a few that are only there to make sure that they don't get fired. They show no interest in how you are doing or what you are doing to better yourself professionally
Customer Care Associate (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – May 2, 2017
worked on the phone all day with customer issues. Learned a lot about cellular services and how they work, along with billing, credits and troubleshooting. The culture was the Dynamic Organization with lots of good values to live by.
Inbound Call Center Agent (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – May 2, 2017
They don't understand work/life balance. The work is steady and constant so you are never bored or sitting idle. I did enjoy having a team and goals to hit as a team and individual. The downside is you are stuck to a script and not allowed to deviate. Having to collect money from people is a tough enough thing to do without being restricted to a set of questions and there was no wiggle room for empathy.
Always had something to do, never bored. Hours consistent
Hard to get a day off, scripted and lacked empathy
