Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Optus full-time

Pros

Great teamwork and good ideas. Some small perks and can be a way to get into corporate world and more exposure than in a franchised store

Cons

The pay was quite low, with no commission on sales compared to other franchises who often paid more.
