Full time employee, difficult to earn money...
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – NC – May 10, 2018
It is difficult to keep a steady pay, especially in lower volume stores. It is also extremely difficult to maintain a positive vibe as you realize that an upcoming paycheck is likely going to average out less than 8$ an hour total when you expected more.
The main positive is how easy the job is, but the fact that your paycheck depends on so many things you cannot control (delivery team mess ups, appliance manufacturer issues, faulty products, customers changing minds) it is nearly impossible to feel secure in such a position.
Also, be wary if there is a higher-leveled employee on the same sales floor as you. While competitive, it should be expected that each salesperson should get equal rights as a salesperson, and not one person to get all the sale-rights, while the others have to beg for their help whenever trying to close a sale.
Simply put, SHO (Sears Hometown) is just difficult to work with, unless in a very high volume area. It is easy to lose motivation, especially being in a low volume area with a high volume store just 15 miles away. Be sure to ask plenty of questions if applying here, it is not a bad job, just not one that offers the best in terms of financial security.
