Pay depends on location, ask about that locations turnover and how long the longest employee has been at that location.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  AlabamaJanuary 10, 2019
Worked there for over a year and the pay plan changed twice each time leaving you with less money while raising their expectation. You are means of production and nothing more to this company but they don't mind pretending if you tolerate that kind of corporate hand job. Your whole commission is hung on having at least two DirecTV installs on the month and that is a struggle in a slow location. Ethics are talked about often but those who succeed in this company are those that don't mind half explaining and omitting full cost at every given opportunity. The sales goals provided have to be exceeded by at least 10% to cover returns within 60 days of purchase which are difficult to investigate afterward. Management and coworkers where nice and pleasant just don't ask too many questions regarding your declining pay. But hey if you drink the Kool Aid its a great job!
Pros
Great pay on paper
Cons
getting pencil whipped by said pay plan

Typical Retail Sales Job
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Davie, FLDecember 11, 2018
Every employee's perspective will be based on their current district manage and regional director.

Fairly relaxed retail management position having a lot of down time. During busy times, if you enjoy sales, the job is great.

As a store manager, you decide how the culture of your store is going to be. Most locations do not have an assistant manager.

terrible management. unrealistic expectations and goals.
Retail Store Manager (Former Employee) –  OhioDecember 10, 2018
no matter how well you're doing they will always find a reason to scrutinize your performance. upper management is under trained and lacks basic communication skills. stores are very understaffed leaving managers to work overtime because reps are not allowed.
Pros
full benefits offered, decent starting pay
Cons
bad management, unrealistic goals

Benefits can be great but their is no loyalty from above
Retail store Manager (Current Employee) –  Massapequa, NYNovember 14, 2018
Impossible expectations they hold you accountable.
if you Aren't faring well in sales or if you speak your mind against upper management. They push you to a failing store until they have reason to fire you.
3 months in a row of not hitting 80% to your goal

I was put into a store that had not attained its goal for a year and the months I was in that store had the highest numbers.

Also they push cold calling very hard and do not take in the ideas of their retail managers to heart,
I pushed and advocated for they to allow me to join the chamber of commerce but they kept saying we are woking on it...it has been 6 months
Pros
benefits arent bad
Cons
Management and structure style horrific

Sounds great when you start, but they don't care about their employees.
Retail Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Troy, NYNovember 1, 2018
Terrible place to work. Don't follow the rules being an authorized retailer. Probably some of the reason why AT&T is failing as a wireless company. Look elsewhere.

Potential to make really good money
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) –  OhioOctober 20, 2018
If you meet or exceed sales goals, you can make a lot of money. You’re screwed if not. Management can be hit or miss, store level is usually great but upper levels can be rough. Some questionable sales practices encountered occasionally. It’s possible to move up in the company but it will require significant travel or relocation
Pros
Great compensation potential, very laid back if you’re a top seller
Cons
Questionable sales practices, no work/life balance in management

Unethical company
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Bridgeport, TXOctober 8, 2018
The quota required is always unobtainable. The company promotes to do whatever it takes to make a sale, including omission of information or manipulating promotions to benefit the company.

Constantly Changing
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Ozark, ALOctober 2, 2018
The quotas are always changing and they are not for the benefit of the salesman. They keep minimum quotas for people in areas with less traffic and then punish them for not hitting the quotas. The management only cares about their money not the team, and they are not transparent at all. They make promises and don't keep them and they will even steal your sales out from under you.
Pros
Not a bad starting job
Cons
Don't stay long, they start to get to you.

Love working here, but the constant pay plan changes, stress from higher ups to hit goal, and threatening of job security aren’t the best for an ideal work environment.
Pros
Pto, Comission, Decent hourly pay.
Cons
Constant pay changes, pressure and stress from higher ups, unrealistic sales goals

Used to be a good place
Sales Consultant/Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 27, 2018
They have stopped caring about their employees. New *bosses, definitely not leaders. They only care about rankings and you are encouraged to commit fraud to do so. But when ATT comes down on Prime, they act like they had no idea and you are screwed.
Pros
They have dissipated.
Cons
Bosses not leaders, snakes, cheaters, liars

Great place to apply a telecommunications career.
Sales Rep/Store Manager Cellular Sales (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNAugust 14, 2018
Great company to work for excluding cons of long hours due to manager salary versus hourly pay. This company acquired my prior telecommunications company, Cellular Sales which was higher paying and also better upper-level management.

Not a bad job
Retail Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Sun City Center, FLAugust 9, 2018
A typical day depends greatly on your manager. Depending on store traffic you can spend your day busy talking to people and making sales or sitting in the store doing nothing, or going out finding leads of your own. The culture and environment differs greatly depending on area and management, upper management tends to micromanage
Pros
relaxed
Cons
micromanagement

Nice job for starting out
Assistant Manager/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Lake Wales, FLAugust 7, 2018
This was a nice place to learn to hold a full time job but management needs some work. I learned a lot about sales and helping people. Pay was good. Just wish the sales metrics weren't so ridiculous at times.

A very complex company.
Senior Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Birmingham, ALJuly 28, 2018
I don’t normally write low reviews, but this was by far the hardest company I’ve ever been employed by. The left hand never knew what the right hand would be doing. There was never a committed commission structure which lead to confusion every month upon payouts. Upper management was never there for full support to their teams.
Pros
Sales experience, working with the public
Cons
Commission, upper management, work/life balance, morale

Store Manager (Former Employee) –  GeorgiaJuly 23, 2018
Just hope you end with a good team, some people just think they know it all and are unwilling to change. Could create better incentives to stay. Not bad, just not great
