Retail Store Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 6, 2018
Everything is based on who you know. There are very tight bonds among former Best Buy employees. (They don't try to hide it.) You can expect to see the best and the worst in management. New managers are basically thrown in to either sink or swim with your welfare in hand.

Wireless Vision is a great place to work for if you are just jumping into the business. There is a high turnover rate, but I find most people do get themselves fired. Min. wage hourly pay plus commission, the commission structure does tend to change quarterly which could be a good or bad thing, just depends and it is a goal based business. Raise's are very hard to come by, but always room for advancement which is odd.

Wireless Vision has five core values that are the foundation of their culture. Everyone is family at WV. They mean everyone. From the clients to the employees. When you walk through the doors of a Wireless Vision store, you are among family. Competitive compensation and benefits for FT and PT employees make WV a great place to be.

This is a horrible company. They’re all backstabbing and treat you like crud. I was hired on and teased relentlessly and if I messed up I got written up but if my other coworkers did it was just a hey don’t do it next time. I was written up for stuff I wasn’t even told about and had my signatures forged on the write ups and when I was terminated for a bad review that wasn’t even true (yes they terminated me for a bad review) I was torn about it because I had no where else to go and ended up going homeless because the pay isn’t good enough to not live paycheck to paycheck. I was making a bunch of sales and still could barely live ( my monthly bills total about $900), they do everyone dirty and are backstabbing. Do not go to work for this company, they’ll screw you over so badly that you wish you’d never even heard the name wireless vision. Also the employees all smoke cigs or weed constantly. And in bigger cities they do hard core drugs also.
Backstabbing, horrible management, drug abuse, stealing, hypocritical, back breaking.

Working at a slow location, it is cut throat. Only one employee can be on top, it's usually the one that always works with management as they gave no competition for sales. Find ways to still customers stuff they don't need and hope they don't return it or you will get a negative mark against yourself. But you are required to still things customers don't need it you will lose job, it's a lose lose situation. Sometimes you get the awesome customers that make your job feel with while. Be careful sharing sales, because it was so slow and you tagged team a customer, so you feel it's fair to split the sale, not all employees will do the same and any work that you helped on getting sale can go unrewarded. There are sneaky ways to get your commission numbers to be negative that management will make happen, be careful if they want you out they will do these tactics. Never trust anyone. Lunch break can be unheard of, and if you go on vacation your commission and performance is effected
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – June 30, 2018
When I first started everything was great for the first six months but after that there were a lot of changes and everything seems to be going downhill. I was transferred to a location without a manager and once we finally got one I was transferred yet again to another location without a manager. Almost a whole month in and there is still no word on what's going on. The work/life balance I once had has gone down the drain.
Great employee discount
Work/life balance and heavily focused on conversion

Wireless vision is a good place to work if you can hustle. Thats pretty much their motto and you'll only be paid well if you can sell the services. If you're unwilling or unable to do so or you're just not inclined to sales its not the place for you.
Great people to work with and flexible schedule. Very team based culture.
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – June 18, 2018
By far the worst company I have ever worked for. The commission structure is designed to screw you over no matter how much you sell and bust your butt off for them. They offer commission spiffs for selling insurance, hotspot features, or selling specific phones. The spiffs day they will pay you $10 on your check for each one you add or sell. But WV will find any way possible to rip you off and not pay you out for the sales that you’ve earned. They are constantly changing the commission structure month to month and it only gets worse. With the company making more and then cutting your wages more and more every time. MANAGEMENT was also very horrible. Super unprofessional young people who’s only goal is to hit numbers no matter how many people they screw over (employees included.) DO NOT WORK HERE.
Horrible compensation, rough hours, no work to life balance
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – May 23, 2018
Stay away from it . the DM is doing froud telling ppl( I dont care what you do to get the new lines added to ppls accounts ) .. they have gangs formed inside the district .. if you dont fake it and become friends with the DM and the store mangers .. you will never get promoted and the write ups is their plan all the time to push you to quit to save there selfs.. They lie about everything .. store mangers do nothing but setting in the back office acting they are working but they on the phone or watching the cameras or eating most of them leave Early everyday and most of the time they dont work weekends or they say they are doing meetings or helping other stores but they Actually taking the time off they want coz they are paid off salary. They still write you up even if you have been working there for more than 2 years and did them ton of sells . STAY AWAY FROM Baltimore district . Open window policy is a lie coz no one ever from Wireless vision came down to talk to the employees without the DM or a store manger around or even called or e mail the employees to ask whats going on in the stores .. Do not do it .

I have worked for Wireless Vision for five years, and it has been a wonderful journey. This is very rewarding work if you are willing to work hard. Upward advancement is constant, surrounded by both people and situations that will help you to grow your professional skill-set.
This is the best company and best position I have ever work for and in.
The Pro's are the pay, paid time off, the advancement possibilities, the culture, the competition, and the personal growth.
The Con's are that it can be at times very demanding compared to what some people are used to, and it is very competitive. If you love competition, you will love it here. If you do not like competition, you might not like it here.
