Depends on the store. I'd investigate it a bit - find out how busy it is (both slow and peak hours of the day). Stop by and see how busy it is. The only way you'll sell and make money (since this is 100% commissioned) is if there's enough customers to sell to.

However, as an associate who stocks the shelves, I'd suggest not working here. Managers will hassle you for credit card applications, protection agreements, etc. You not only have to sell appliances, you have to sell credit cards and agreements. I've seen far too many associates yelled at just for not selling enough of them. And they cut your hours and play games with you if you don't keep up.

This is all as a by stander. But overall the companies failing... If I'm not mistaked, $EARS lost something like 250 million dollars last year. Hardly the best environment to work.
