I have a group job interview and I want to know what the interview is like. I work at GameStop and they are very Goals oriented. I have to sell memberships and protection for games and get certain pre orders and If I don't I get threatened with losing hours. I want to know if t mobile has something similar to this. Also I've never worked at a job that offers commission so I wanted to know how this commission thing works. I feel nervous now wanting to work at t mobile because its starting to sound scary. One last thing, I want to know if they move employees from store to store a lot. I applied to a T-Mobile that is really close to my house where I don't have to take any form of transportation. Please answer as soon as possible!! Also! On downtime GameStop always makes you have to be doing something. For downtime for t mobile is there something you always have to be doing?

Sales quotas are rigid, and there's no excuse for not hitting them at t-mobile. On the bright side, you're compensated for the sales via commission, but they're always trying to find ways to deny commissions or reduce them.

I don't know if employees move around a lot, but in my market, that was not the case.

There is no downtime. You're expected to clean or make cold-calls to solicit local customers for upgrades.

T-Mobile is a very relaxed place to work in. Yes, there are goals. Seeing as though you will be a new hire, your first months goal will be a lot less than those with experience. Reason for this is to measure you and your capability of making sales. As far as commission, you'll receive it at the end of the month, the more you propose yourself to exceed your goal, the more your commission check will be. You'll still get your hourly pay biweekly, commission is basically a bonus at the end of he month. Remember that they don't only sell cellphones here, they also sell accessories. So if you happen to have a slow day at work, you can use your down time to market on social media, the fact that you're at work, what items you have available and what all you can do for a person. You could also use your down time to actively speak with your coworkers and gain pointers on what helps them make sales, establish relations with long term customers, etc. Relocation is not a must, but sometimes it is required.

I wouldn't say working for T-Mobile was scary as long as you were a good employee and do your best to hit your sales goals. Yes, you do have small tasks like making sure inventory is stocked or simple cleaning on downtime. There is a lot of movement from store to store, but usually that's only if you request it and only rare occasions are you ever moved based on company needs without requesting it

Yes. Callbacks to new and existing customers to generate more traffic in the store. Maintaining store cleanliness of course and staying up to date on all promotions.

So mobile does not threaten you at all because you are working for yourself. The whole idea of tmobile is that you are working as your own dealer so therefore the more people you help the more money you make. They do not move employees from store to store. No, tmobile knows that if there aren't any customers in store then you can do whatever you wish. As long as you are on the sales floor. I would suggest you study the on going promotions so you can pitch them to customers.

The thing about T-Mobile is you're not a sales person you're a customer service representative as long as you put the customer first your sales will call me it's automatic I was the top person for adding lines 2 months in a row actually 3 because I want to trip for it but I never was a salesperson always just made my customers know what their account look like and how I could assist them in helping their account look better so don't worry about sales just be yourself and I guarantee you do fun interest there really is no down time but you will find the best usage to make yourself the best representative you could
