Not as great of a job as they lead on...
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – September 18, 2013
First, the interviewing process is quite lengthy: phone interview, ATL interview, TL interview, TL&DL interview, drug test, two weeks of training, and then you're thrown on the sales floor to fend for yourself. They tell you how you will have numerous opportunities to move up through the company, but they don't tell you that the chances are slim and 683,797 other employees (that were promised the same thing) are going for the same five open positions that you are. Second, this company tries it's hardest to only employ part-timers and keep their pay at minimum wage without benefits. They are so much more focused on trying to open more stores, they have forgotten about taking care of their employees. Third, they have core values they want you to enforce (all of which are conflicting), until the customer complains loud enough-then they will throw you under the bus and make you look like the rear of a donkey for sticking to the core values they've brainwashed you with.
They are losing employees faster than they can hire them, which results in the senior team babysitting while still trying to make ridiculously high goals. Oh! I almost forgot about the goals. This is a sales position, you will be hired on with an hourly wage (don't expect much more than minimum, no matter your background) and you will be told you can make hundreds more in commission. I'm not saying you can't earn more money, but the amount of work you need to put in to get in the triple digit range is not worth it. You might as well be a car salesman. At most, you earn .75% on in house brand and .50% on high end brand. Yes, you read that correctly! Not even 1% of your sales will go to you, and that was the high end of their commission structure (meaning you will need to make 120%+ of your goal and maintain that). Let's do some quick math, best scenario: You sell a helmet that is their in-house brand (which is always on sale) Retail $400, on Sale $200, it cost them $36.98 to make that helmet and ship to your store= their profit $163.02, your 'commission' is a WHOPPING $1.50. Did I forget to mention that you spent ONE HOUR trying to get that customer to decide on a helmet? Your hour was only worth $1.50 to them, and let's not forget...that's on the highest pay scale. I'd rather try my luck at selling cars.
Somewhat decent discount, will work with your schedule.
Very low wages, no benefits.
