    Base pay for the type of sales Benefits if you survive that long

    Management is abysmal or cares exclusively for numbers Extremely mentally, physically, and emotionally taxing Horrible turnover Management roles are unobtainable and not even worth it Crew expendable You can forget about being off on weekends The individual member does not matter Commission structure is linear which for dry months, can kill your opportunity for bonus You are made to be as predatory as possible with sales and pitches Nepotism and favoritism kill this company

    Commission Structure is horrible.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling Costco members are usually nice to work with. Compared to an indirect retailer.

    Cons

    Seems to be a very common reoccurring review that the commission structure is not set up for anyone to make money but the company. If you don’t sell about 2-4 phones on average for every 8 hours you work them you flat out do NOT make any commission. So if you have a bad day or a slow day at work you have to constantly dig yourself out of a hole for the rest of the month. Hoping you don’t have another day like that in a month. GOD FORBID. They will tell you you make $50 at least off of a phone sale, but you’ll never see it. Even in your first month you’re expected to sell the same amount as someone who’s had experience with the company. The way it is set up you are better off just not clocking in and only clocking in whenever you are actually working on a sale. The hourly is not worth it and it’s sad that most likely that’s all you will be getting paid. The commission structure is set up the same for stores that are in huge traffic areas or not. If you are located in a major US city you will do just fine. If you are not you will not make any commission. For example a store located in Chicago is expected to do the same volume as a store located in a town of 100,000 population.

    Excellent Stepping Stone

    Pros

    If you're looking to get into wireless or retail sales, it's a great place to start as you'll be able to sell the big four carriers at the same time and various different devices. Usually pretty laid back and quotas/targets are very realistic. Working inside Costco is pretty cool too.

    Cons

    Sometimes boring when slow. Loneliness kicks in because you aren't a Costco employee. Base pay and commission structure for good salespeople and managers should be higher especially considering narrow structure and very limited room for growth. They'll also let you go since you're very easily replaceable. Turnover is high for new hires from what I've seen.
