Working in a commission job should be your last option
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 November 2017
Typical day at work-Wait for the customers to walk in the store and assist them with their purchases.
Learned- about the products- furniture, mattress, appliances and electronics sold by the company through the brick learning site, fairs, training, etc.
Management just cares about the numbers and their priority is selling warranties, plans, etc.
Most of the people around are friendly and co-operative.
The hardest part- it is a commission based job, so the more you sell the more you earn. But during slow traffic(which is most of the times) you have to wait long hours for the customer to enter the store and with so many sales people on the floor you have to wait for your turn to approach customer.
Best part is- you do not have to stand for long hours unlike other retail places. During holiday seasons you earn good amount.
Ample relaxation time during slow traffic
Long hours, pay is less for the amount of effort and work, stressful
