Good starting job- Sales Associate
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Clearwater, FL – November 9, 2018
Sunglass Hut offers your basic college student retail sales position. It can offer good basic retail experience, such as learning standard cash/card transactions, opening lines of credit, and most importantly, making sales. The one downside I've encountered in my time is that the pay is fairly low compared to other retail positions. Sunglass Hut does offer 1% commissions on sales as long as the entire store makes the sales goal, which only ever happens around half the time. You do get an annual (but extremely minor) raise that is easily outmatched by other large corporations. If you need a good starting job, this is fine. However, unless you are really in love with sales, I wouldn't recommend making a career out of it.
