Mission

Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Wireless Advocates is a leading provider of wireless products and services both online and in over 600 retail locations nationwide. Together with the top wireless carriers (Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint) and OEM's (Apple, Samsung, LG, Motorola), our expert team of wireless professionals are here to help people connect.

Wireless Advocates operates retail kiosks and online sales activities for our retail partners: Costco Wholesale, Army & Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES), Marine Corps Exchange (MCX), and Navy Exchange (NEX). Wireless Advocates is proud of our relationships with partners in building successful wireless operations within their stores. Our private label sales kiosks integrate effortlessly into retail environments, delivering customers a great experience.

Responsibilities

As a Wireless Manager, you'll own a Wireless Advocates-branded kiosk in our Military channel, serving US armed forces personnel and their dependents. You'll work closely with your team to deliver outstanding sales results (both on a personal and team level), operational excellence and an exceptional member experience. From driving daily sales performance to meeting operational standards, you'll identify areas for improvement and, working with your District Manager and HR business partner as necessary, respond quickly to close the gaps. And, with the same focus, you'll celebrate success to reinforce your team's effort and accomplishments.

This is an exciting opportunity in a blue chip retail space that is primed for massive growth with manufacturers rolling out their 5G devices later this year. We hold a unique advantage in that we're able to offer all of the latest devices and plans from Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. These roles come with full benefits and excellent pay - with base, bonus and commissions, our managers are averaging $20/hr and our top performers are earning $27/hr and higher.

You communicate expectations and hold your team members accountable.
