^ and ^^ Minimum requirement to stay employed here is $3k per month, which is honestly pretty easily attainable with minimal effort. Last 2 people I hired made $7k and $5k in their first full month out of training. And that's in Burlington, not Raleigh.

^ Yes, among other things. And most likely rotating between 2 or 3 stores in the area, with the ability to work in any Cellular Sales location in NC.

how do you make money in this business? higher service fees? interest on devices?

None of the above. Verizon pays us commission to sell their products and services. We charge the same as (and sometimes less than) Corporate stores but provide exceptional customer service. So the real money is in the repeat business and referrals.

I realize this thread is about retail sales.... which I have no experience. Hear me out, maybe I can offer some insight.

I am in outside sales, which is currently salary+commission, but will move into straight commission starting at the beginning of July 2010. I have been in this position since July 2009. I have competition from several direct manufacturing sales reps, large distributors, and local distributors. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of each:

Direct Advantages: Immediate knowledge of new technology, no middle man mark up, one shipping bill (paid by manufacturer or buyer of goods), access to larger range of non-commodity items, control inventory, have access to many distributors that can effectively sell their goods which increases market share, and set prices of commodity they manufacture.

Direct disadvantages: Typically have 1-3 sales reps per region (i.e. southeast, mid-atlantic, northeast, etc.) limiting the number of accounts they can successfully manage/cold-call, lack physical customer service or physical technical service available to or affordable for smaller users or altogether, are sometimes not trustworthy because they will go in behind their distributors that sell their commodity to one account in large quantities (i.e. they missed a big account, and have found out about it through a distributor selling their particular product) which leads to the distributor not selling their product anymore, have too many distributors selling the product ultimately driving the set price down through deviations, possibly rely on distributors to actually sell the product, and competition from other direct sources.

Large distributor advantages: have access to other commodities that go hand in hand with other manufacturers (poor example- grocery stores sell milk as well as cereal), get direct pricing, many locations regionally or nationally easing the shipping burden of buyers with multiple locations, personal service either customer or technical, many sales reps that are able to cover a broader territory, access to multiple manufacturers of the same commodity allowing to keep prices in check, service programs that smaller companies can't offer and direct providers can't match in price or value, and experts of many many commodities as opposed to one or a few.

Large distributor disadvantages: smaller local distributors creating price wars (think Michael Scott Paper Co vs Dunder-Mifflin), direct mfg's going in behind and stealing business, limited access to all of the mfg's (you won't find Harris Teeter name brands in Food Lion and visa versa), can't truly set prices because it's based on both supply and demand, territory management, and tough growth prospects in slower economies (this is true for direct as well really)

Local distributor advantages: Typically a good ol' boy setting where the seller and the buyer know each other for years (this does happen at all levels, but mostly at the local level), local folks are right down the street and can be used in emergencies, if the local guy buys at high enough volumes then there is no shipping charge to the end user, and access to both direct mfg's and large distributors.

Local distributor disadvantages: easily beaten in price, array of commodities, array of technology, lack of trained staff, low cash flow, etc etc etc.

This is what I have noticed in my six months, I am sure there are plenty more that need mentioning. The way I am setting myself apart as a sales person is this: I go after the big accounts right now while I am new. The big accounts, if I land them, will take care of me while I am new and building a customer base. The money made off of those allows me to focus free time on smaller accounts that get me higher margins. I build up big accounts, I would like to have 5-10 of these, then get 20-30 medium accounts. If I lose 1 or 2 big accounts, the 20-30 medium accounts keep me afloat while I go after new big accounts. I don't really waste time on small accounts simply because they basically pay for breakfast or something really small.

I will say this, if you can't get a big account in the first 6-8 months (assuming you have cash flow that you can ride this long) you could be in a world of trouble. If you can get one, it will really make going after the others a lot more enjoyable and less stressful. It's simply just very exhausting wasting any time on anything other than big accounts in the very beginning. You work just as hard on the medium sized accounts and see 1/3 to 1/36 of the money in my situation.

If you have any other questions, you can PM me. I hope this helps in the slightest!

I went into a Verizon store, a nice lady told me all about some plans and options,
but me, not one to make decisions on the spot, thought it over for a few days

I came back in a few days later, and asked for her by name, was told she no longer worked there

as I was finishing up getting my new phone plan, she came back from lunch

are all Verizon store employees this cut-throat?

Was this a corporate store or cellular sales location? When I worked at the corporate store we were always under the impression the Cellular Sales reps were shady af...this may or may not be true but it was the prevailing rumor.

^^ Wow, that's shitty. There are other authorized retailers in the Raleigh area. A Wireless is one that comes to mind, among others. I'd be interested to know the location of that store. I highly doubt it's a Cellular Sales, we wouldn't put up with that shit. And if it was 1 of our stores, I need to know about it.

^ I work for Cellular Sales. Back in the day, I'm sure some shady stuff went on. At 1 point reps were 1099 employees, so quality control of personnel was more difficult. Things are way different now. We are well regarded in the industry when it comes to honesty, integrity, and overall customer experience.

This was 2009-2012. I recall being told the Cellular Sales reps made way more on 100% comission (which makes sense off what you are saying) but we had all the cadillac benefits like $33 a month health insurance, paid time off, short term disability insurance, life insurance, etc.

Yeah, that's all changed now. I came on in 2013, shortly after the switch from 1099 to W-2. We're still 100% commission and still get paid the highest commissions in the industry, but we also have benefits (health, dental, vision, etc) through BCBS and 401k.

it was like 5/6 years ago, I don't remember the name, but it wasn't a Verizon store, just a cell phone store that had Verizon

but about the time she walked in, and I said "I though you said she didn't work here any more?"
the manager came over and gave her the sale, as soon as I left, I have a feeling it got ugly in there

Isn't A Wireless now bigger than Cellular Sales? I thought Rich bought another chain recently that took him over 1,000 stores now...

It really all depends on what you qualify as a location. A Wireless has a lot of kiosks whereas Cellular Sales has more physical stores.

Well lets see. He hasn't replied on here, so maybe he doesn't check them because he has posted since the message was sent. Thanks!
