Store Manager (Former Employee), calgary – June 3, 2015
Cons: work/life balance, stress
The four years I spent at Virgin Mobile were interesting and never boring. You are always learning new tech and how it benefits your customers lifestyle. You must always be connected to the job as its an expectation, this can result in poor work/life balance. Metrics are of the utmost importance and you are always worrying about them on a day to day basis.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), toronto – June 1, 2015
Pros: Discounted phones and plans
Cons: not enough hours
usually would open the store. count the till and finish productivity paperwork. then proceed to help members find plans and devices that match their needs. I learned about the telecommunications industry and how Important customer service is. Co workers made my job even better with our efficient team work. hardest part of the job was selling accessories for devices when kiosks around the store sold them for a much lower price. most enjoyable part of was interacting with new and current members of virgin mobile
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – April 29, 2015
Pros: Awesome coworkers
Cons: Downtime when the mall wasn't busy
A typical day at work for Virgin Mobile didn't exist. Working for VM is anything but typical. We would have all sorts of customers (at VM they're referred to as "members"). For argument's sake though, you would come in and click-in for your shift. Maintain a clean work environment, update records and sales metrics as the day went along and assist potential or existing members as they came by. I learned a lot about the telecommunication industry during my time at VM. Management was always very friendly and understanding. Co-workers were also very friendly people as they are the types of individuals that you would want working for such an industry. The hardest part of the job was trying to meet sales targets on days when no one really seemed to be visiting the mall. The most enjoyable part of the job was without a doubt the interactions you would have with the members and mall patrons.
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Lloydminster, AB – November 17, 2014
I wouldn't have left this job if I had the choice. I wasn't able to transfer back to Lloydminster after living in BC because of the full staffing. I worked here for two years, and my coworkers had become a small family, still keep in touch and hang out with them frequently. It was a fun work environment for sure.
Gave me insight to the retail side of Human Resources

A day at work would include coming in and making sales. Working off commission meant that the harder I worked the more I would make, so that initiative was great. Management was ok, but my coworkers were great. Virgin gave me many skills that I have today including my problem solving skills.
