As a former Sales Associate, Trisha Goco recalls her biggest career highlight working at Virgin Mobile in Vancouver, BC.
She was recognized as a top performer in the region and was moved to a busier store where she could take her sales skills to the next level.
“I went from a store with low traffic to activating three SIM cards an hour,” said Trisha.

Devin Allard is on that path to career growth. Devin works at the Northgate Mall Virgin Mobile store as a Sales Associate in North Bay. He has been with Virgin Mobile for three years and had recently been selected for the Virgin Mobile management training program called Compass.
The purpose of the Compass program is to train internal staff for leadership roles in the company. When an opportunity arises, Virgin looks to select from the pool of internal candidates who have gone through the program.
