Before working in one of seven New Mexico stores, each Wireless Express employee must first pass through extensive training in customer service, software, and device navigation. That way, staff can guarantee that, no matter what accessory customers are looking for or which phone feature they need help understanding, they can be out the door in less than 30 minutes. In addition to being a phone-and-accessory emporium and repair shop, each store also functions as a recycling center and trading post: staff will gladly take in discarded cell phones, chargers, batteries, and embarrassing text messages for safe disposal. The store also offers a trade-in program to upgrade devices.
