As for you corporate guys that say indirects are ruining the reputation of TM. Indirect Agents MADE T-Mobile. There would be NO T-Mobile if it were not for us. All those little mom and pops that sold TM before anyone else would?? You know the people some of you are so critical of??? They are t...
--As for everyone trhowing my comments out of wack--
Slow down there! I didn't say ALL indirects are dishonest. I worked for a Cingular agent store for about two years, and we were definitely honest. I left there to getbetter pay with TMO direct. All I was sayin is that in some markets.. such as here in Dallas, indirects are ruining TMOs reputation. Companies like Skylight Wireless and The Mobile Solution (a mall kiosk company)
I am not against all corp peeps, just the ones that do not appreciate what the agents represent. I am not saying that all agents are great, just that most are doing business in an ethical manner and deserve more respect.
I hope you are making lots of money buddy, but I doubt you make more than half my store managers. As for making more than my 9 stores put together, I hope one day you acheive that goal.
This thread was directed at compensation issues. T-Mobile's compensation is the worst of the 4 carrier's I sell and therefore they have gone from getting 250 acts a month to about 80. I like the product, but I cannot afford to sell it when other carrier offer a much higher profitability.
2nd of all, if a any handset other than a new handset directly from TM is activated agents do not get paid commission on the transaction. So either you have some real idiot indirects in your area, or someone is telling you stories, because there is no benifit for an agent to sell used handsets.
