Great Pay & Benefits, and thats where it ends
Wireless Consultant (Former Employee) – Ankeny, IA – September 5, 2018
I worked for US Cellular for a little over a year. Having a previous background in wireless, I knew some of what to expect. Pay was very good based on the industry average, as long as sales targets are hit. We had many very, very slow months, and sales targets weren't adjusted to be realistic when traffic was down.I felt that my job was secure, however there was little talk of advancement across the board. It seemed that un-ethical employees were promoted first, and others were only considered for promotion when they were desperate. Basically, as long as someone had steller sales numbers, it didn't matter how they got them. Management was the thing that drove me out. Even in very understaffed stores, upper management made no effort to staff stores, held job fairs with no advertising, and ignored applications when they came in. They also are not trained whatsoever on the sales systems, so when you did have a question, you received a blank stare most of the time, with no answer. Overall, not the worst job I've had, but I wouldn't go back.
Bad management, crazy schedule, bad hours
