Mobile Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Monaca, PA – January 29, 2018
First off if you understand what it means to be a Sales person then a lot of these complaints don't make sense. They do expect you to know what you're doing and not need your hand held every day through the experience especially when you have uncapped commission. The sales game is not a good game unless you're passionate about it and good at it. If you're shy this is not for you. If you don't like to do a lot of walking and standing this is not for you. If the pressure of quota stresses you out this is not for you. And obviously if you don't know a lot about cell phones or computer technology this is not for you. Not with just this company but pay rates need to go up even with commission. 8 hour shifts that are mostly planted dead smack in the middle of the day will kill your personal or social life and at least where I'm at weekends were mandatory for full-time. For the pay rate I don't know if it's worth it. Walking around and approaching people everyday for 8 hours a day in Walmart where people are not known to be the happiest (Walmart employees especially) can and may start to get to you after some time. But it is not by far the worst sales job out there but it is what it is.
Commission, freedom to walk around, paid 15 min breaks, discounts

I worked for this company for almost a year and enjoyed it. They actually seen to care about their employees overall and I would still be with them if the company that our project was contracted with didn't move it to another company. The CEO is extremely involved with all aspects of the company and this is by far the best company I've ever worked for.
Phone Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Pikeville, KY – January 20, 2018
This job was working the connection center in Wal-Mart. It was a pretty laid back job. And that's about all the pros.
I was payed a decent base salary. The commission was a joke. We where given 5 dollars an activation and 50 cents per prepaid phone and 1 percent on accessories if your store met its goals.
Half the time the Walmart associates expect you to do their job and it ended up what led to me being let go. You will get a lot of complaints to management because customers think you are a Walmart employee. So you have to have a pretty big backbone.
But the management that I had was great, very customer oriented and they make sure the job gets done. My manager was great and is one of the reasons I enjoyed the job.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Union City, TN – January 12, 2018
They don't consider nobody feelings unless it's their own.. you work whatever hours that put you on yuo u can't switch days nor work weekends and the management goes off he say she say.. They don't pull no more to the back but ur department manager.
the pay was the most enjoyable. Sales is not my career and I do not want to make it one. It was to stressful with the hours, working on the weekends and during the holidays is not want I loved about the job. to much time away from family.
Sales Associate and Cashier (Former Employee) – Campbellsville, KY – December 14, 2017
Working for this company is horrible, this job isn't for anyone who has families to take care of. When your there your inside of Walmart. You end up doing Walmart's job as well. The manager really doesn't train you. She'll give you a packet to practice with for 2 days then throw you out there. She doesn't care honestly. Really just bad things going on there.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cumming, GA – October 27, 2017
My first day was okay I got to mess around with the Mobile sales application for about an hour. I had another associate with me that day to answer my questions and show me the basics of the job. My second day I was left alone for the first 4 hours with no access to the Walmart point of sale system. I had very little knowledge of the WARP system(Mobile sales software). I should of been sent to another location that was staffed since I was still new but nope I was left alone. If a company isn't willing to invest time to properly train you then to me it seems that they don't really care about you as an employee.
Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Boynton Beach, FL – September 25, 2017
Good entry level position that was no doubt highly competitive. Work environments changed and job freedom was always provided. The only reason I would no recommend to a friend is for the low pay. However as an entry level position and opportunity to gain work experience I am highly thankful to the people at the Retail Outsource.
Hired as T-Roc but work for Brightstar in Sprint stores( formerly Radio Shack)
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Florida – September 19, 2017
The interview was about 4 minutes about five questions, hour later told I got the job. That was a slight red flag. The overview of the job was to increase accessories revenue in each store. This was something new at T-Roc and was not a guarantee it will work or last. I was sent out of state for a two day training. A very jammed packed two days, could have easily gone another day. After training, sent home to do online trainings, which took 2 days. The second day I did on my time to not get in trouble. I found myself doing a lot of online work on my time. My territory was only 12 stores, then went down to 10. Sprint decided to close two. The territory was in three states. The pay, I cleared 500 a week, 800 for car allowance a month. They let me rent a car and get a hotel for anything 150 miles from your home. My manager was always in panic mode and was 500 miles away. Constant messages from her, it was difficult to respond back every 5 minutes when you are meeting with your clients. The daily conference calls on Zoom were a waste of time at 8 am. An email would have worked.
