Brian Snyder of Cellular Sales sits down with the Cellular Sales Blog.
How long have you worked with the company? I’ve been with Cellular Sales since 1996.
What is it your role within Cellular Sales? Support our sales representatives, develop future leaders, and expand our operations.
Please tell me about your most rewarding experience. My most rewarding experience is one that I’m so fortunate repeats itself time and time again. Being someone whose life was forever changed by this company, and the reward is watching it happen to so many others. I enjoy hearing the heart-felt stories from our team about how this opportunity has helped them achieve life goals and to live a lifestyle they never knew was possible is something that I will always cherish.
What do you like best about working with Cellular Sales? The people! I’m so blessed to be working with some of the most talented and passionate people I have ever met. They have all helped me in so many ways and continue to do so to this day.
What makes Cellular Sales such a special company to work with? The opportunity this company provides is unparalleled in business today. The experience of owning your own company, building your business, and doing it with minimal investment is truly what makes this company special. The concept of being a sales representative and reaping the benefits of your hard work with no income ceiling is a rare business model, which we are very fortunate to have.
What’s different about it from other companies? The differentiator is that we are an “upside down” company. The decisions made in this company are always decided by one simple question, “is it in the best interest of our sales representatives?” If the answer is “no”, we don’t do it!
Before working here, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had? While in college, I played a Sunday night gig at Hannah’s in Knoxville. I NEVER MADE A DIME! My wonderful friends all assumed I got free beer, so they all put their drinks on my tab. By the end of the night, I paid Hannah’s for the privilege to play. Funny, the number of friends coming to the shows went down as the responsibility for paying their own tabs went up! It really was a great experience, though…
Are you married? Yes. She’s the very talented and beautiful Director of Recruiting for this company!
Do you have kids? We have two children, Bennett and Lauren.
What do you like to do with your family? We love to travel, but mostly we enjoy just hanging out and being silly with each other. Dinner time is a big event in my house!
What are your hobbies? Running, working out, playing golf, and playing the guitar.
Do you have a funny story about working at Cellular Sales? Several years ago I was working our Farragut, TN location when a sixty year old man walked in around 8 am. The gentleman threw his phone at me, walked out, then proceeded to start shadow boxing in the parking lot. He was yelling at me that all phones should be water-proof and that he was upset someone else had told him he needed to purchase a new phone. He wanted to “make someone pay”. After repeated attempts to try and calm him down his wife grabbed him and threw him in the car. Good thing, he looked like he would’ve given me a good whippin’!
If you were stuck on a desert island, what three things would you have to have with you? A guitar, a lifetime supply of matches, and a solar powered iPad.
