Re: New AT&T Commish Pay scale?

in the Shop Talk forum

From what I understand, it's the same thing at COR. You only get full pay on an upsell if they've had the original pack for 6 months or more.

The i580 does not use GSM, so I don't know if it CAN be unlocked to work on a GSM system.

Kudos to you. I'm glad there ARE some people in the call centers that don't undermine what we try to uphold at the store level!

How about a view counter to see how many times a thread or post has been viewed? Is that possible? Love the site by the way. :D

I don't push for that kind of thing. I ask once, and if they don't want to give it, I let them know I can run without the SSN, but I'll definitely need a second form of ID, and it will be probable that they will get a higher deposit than if they supplied the SSN. Most of the time, they give it at that point, and if not, I don't feel bad because I told them ...

All Sprint Everything plans that DO NOT INCLUDE unlimited minutes (so all 900 and 450min plans) will get discounted with your NVP discount.

I don't have an exact date, but from what I understand, the 800 along with a few others are being made by Sanyo. It's not exactly iDEN though, it's QChat, which doesn't actually use the iDEN network.

It was Black Friday too. His phone didn't work, I couldn't do anything but I told him to go to service and repair. He couldn't upgrade cuz the phone was in his wife's name, he wanted the phone transferred in his name but that takes time...so he threw the phone at me! Local PD was behind him the whole time... :D

An ok joke?

So one of my coworkers just told me this joke, she swears it's hilarious. I think it's ok. How many custys does it take to screw in a lightbulb? None, they won't do anything about it, but you'll get a million complaints as to why the power's out. Eh? /;|

Tim Donohue did facilitate the merger, but I have a feeling it was because he was ready to step down, and who better to take the reigns than another large carrier? What he didn't take into effect was how dirty the legacy Sprint reps really are, and their execs along with it. Sprint didn't care about Nextel's products or services, just the ARPU, something they were severely lacking. But things changed, and the Nextel execs starting jumping ship. ...

Sprint drove the nail in Nextel's coffin.

I swear, I get this like 10x a day at least. There is no such thing as "the best phone." There IS such a thing as "the best phone for YOU." Find out what features you want, what's most important to you. Then we have a starting point.

Mine might be better...

I disagree. They are ignorant, they look at me funny when I try to talk to them, and that's if they even acknowledge me at all. They're rude, they leave messes on my counter, and their children are out of control.

I just had a Spanish-speaking customer come up to the store and get angry at me cuz I don't speak Spanish. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! I mean, this guy was ANGRY! Are you kidding?! First off, sorry if my job doesn't pay me extra to be bi-lingual, nor do they teach classes on how to be bi-lingual. And lastly, but most importantly, you're in America, not Mexico. Learn English!!!

I totally feel eljeffe on this one. I can't tell you how many times I tried to explain something to a customer and they're like "no, that's not how it is." Sometimes you really just get moments away from knocking the dumb customer right on his or her ass...

If someone can answer for me why customers expect to get EVERYTHING for free when they sign up for service, I will give you a cookie!

When I can tell a pain-in-the-arse customer that I can't help them. Sometimes when the come in throwing around a bad attitude, I professionally give them three chances to calm down and show me the same professional respect. If they blow all three, which sometimes they do, I tell them I can't help them and to take their business elsewhere. I don't put up with that crap. I figure I'm just doing my part to ...

A friend of mine is looking to recruit me to be a rep for AT&T (direct). I'm kinda worried about it mostly cuz I'm worried about the how well the commission structure works (and pays out). Can anyone shed any light on this for me?

First of all, don't ever say: hoonder sneets said: ...skool me peeps! ...again LOL! Secondly, the reason why we're in a recession in the first place is because companies don't have the money to pay their employees a decent living wage (mostly because the executive fat cats don't wanna take a pay cut, but that's a different discussion for another time). So this is why companies lay people off, then people don't have any money to buy the things they want or ...
