commission based sales job.
Salesman (Former Employee) – Vestal, NY – October 9, 2017
lots of ups and downs. when you have merchandise to sell, its no competition.
not much to say, its dirty, long hours, 1 hour before opening and approx 1 hr after closing, so roughly 10 hour days every day whether or not there are customers.
draw is draw, if you don't hit it, mgt. tells you to "take the weekend off" ironically the busiest time of the week so that you cant' hit draw...
if your favored, you get promoted to the store you want. but if not, the only way to get a promotion is to be willing to move.. family or not, home owner or not..
the people you work with, if its for a long time, become like a family to you due to the UN godly amount of time you spend together. you fight, laugh, pick on each other.. try to keep each other motivated for hours at a time so when the next customer comes in your still on point.
its a sales job.. commission based.
you clock in, so there is a minimum wage make up if you dont hit draw, but in the event they have to pay that out too often, they tend to just let you go.
