    Pros

    If you have time on your hands and like to help people dress properly and only need to make some spending money, then this could be your dream job.

    Cons

    The people I work with are all great people but they have little to do with my income or chance for advancement. With the exception of my direct manager and peers, this corporate culture is one of disrespect and low regard.

    You are paid a typical low retail hourly wage and must cover that wage before you can make a commission. The company's marketing is based totally on price so the typical customer has learned to wait until the bogus retail prices are reduced by 60 to 75 per cent. This means you have to work much harder (2 to 3 times as hard) to cover your hourly wage. The hourly wages are rarely covered and if they are, the commission is only a few dollars. The hourly wages are refered to by the company as "unearned" suggesting that they are a "gift" and you did not earn them. However, you are expected to fit customers, be a shipping and receiving clerk, dust, vacuum and mop the floor, clean the bathrooms, stock the shelves, refold and merchandise the clothes, make sales calls on the phone to tell customers about the sales, reset sale signs for every new sale (sometimes as often as 3 times a week), and the $8.00 per hour you make is called "unearned". Go figure. If you wish to earn more money this year than last, you have to sell more. In other words, there is no chance for a raise. As for advancement, most managers are hired form the outside.

    It is a shame that JAB treats the sale force this way because it could be a great company. I believe that a company is only as strong as its "worker bees". There is a high turn over and very low moral. This is like building a house on sand, sooner or later it will come crashing down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to value their sales people. They need to create a better atmosphere for "pay for performance". They also need to stop competing against the sales people with the company's on-line business. They make the on-line ads look like the sales can only be on-line and not in the store. JAB, you are not fooling anyone.
