    Pros

    You'd get great experience with customer service, the culture and environment is great too. Coworkers are mostly nice and ready to help out.

    Cons

    I wish more training could be given on what the job fully entails, especially mobile activations and the salary could be more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Do more hands-on training at the beginning of the hiring process.
