    Straight commission sales, pretty good if you are very aggressive. Not for the timid or laid back personality types.

    Pros

    If you are very aggressive and don't take no for an answer, you can do pretty good. The job is straight commission and you have to hustle if you want to make potentially good money. If you are good at selling electronics and can attach accessories you will do well.
    The employee discount is good depending on what you are buying, some products have much more markup than others and you can buy things slightly above cost.

    Cons

    You are limited to who comes in the store to shop and many days you get extremely slow traffic. Many customers want to negotiate, and price match other stores, which can get you a sale but cost you lots of commission. The hours can be very long and tiring, especially when there is a sale or during the holiday season. If you do not sell enough to cover your hours worked, you get paid a draw and have to pay it back when you do make money. You can't just sell naked TVs all day. You have to attach accessories and extended warranties or you won't make much money because there is very little profit in the TVs alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some sort of hourly or daily pay plus commission structure would work better than straight commission. Many days are so slow that even the best sales people cannot make money and it has caused MANY good sales people to leave.
