    Quoted from another site I found, I guess its from a customer:  
     
    "Today I went to Fry's San Diego and I was helped by William Macias in the computer department. He seems very cocky and over confident, I immediately knew he was the type of sales person who would do anything to close a sale and get my money. He seemed to be very nice to me but in a very fake way, including small talk. When he was showing me the product he didn't really seem to know all the product line without having to read the signs and ask other sales people. I don't understand why sales people have to be fake they should be themselfs, I can spot a fake from a mile away. He ended up closing my sale by telling me about Fry's Service plans which he told me they would replace my computer in store, once I got up to the check out and I asked the supervisor to let me see the terms and conditions of the service plans and to my surprise alot of things weren't covered that William failed to mention. One of these things was that it did not include software, physical damage and or limited pixel burn ins. I also learned that the battery wasn't covered while Best Buy does cover it. The whole time William was helping me I kept thinking to myself this guy is pushing me to whatever must be paying him the most money because he kept on showing me more expensive models. I don't understand why he wouldn't sell me what I wanted instead of what he wanted in the end Im going to end up returning it to get what I want anyways, and if its not through him it will be through another sales person. Final thought, give a customer what they want, be yourself and don't be fake."

    Some people can only make money by trying to be nice or kiss ass because they have very few or no experience with the product they are selling. I would encourage you to return the item and they should eventually learn their lesson.Fry's is corrupt I am here to talk about it.

    yes, i recommend you return the item and buy it from me, i work at store 7, the one in fountain valley. i'm a very honest sales person. i only try to make a little off of you. mainly the warranty. i do believe the warranty is worth it. machines can vary due to your needs. but for most people, a 700 dollar machine, like one of the compaqs or hps will be fine. we even have a sony for 699 right now, that will be good as well. so you can just buy the three years, which costs only 139. and you'll guarantee to have your computer for 3 years for only arould 900 with tax. which is actually a good deal. tk all the way baby haha

    calm down lunatics. cursing isn't allowed in here. for all the hate in here, it's still rated PG. kids, who are fans of fry's, might be reading our posts.  
     
    and does it matter who the sales person is or what he changed his name to? give the poor guy a break, he's just trying to feed himself.  
    if you're not happy with william or paul, go to another sales person Anon.

    So I take it the computer that you put interest into was something that you did not expect. I have never tried to upsale on someone unless I thought it was something that would benefit them in the long run. Yes I am a salesman. Yes this is my job, Yes I will try to make money to feed myself and my family. I am sorry that you didn't get what you wanted and you had to come back. I heard you already returned it and I'm glad that went smooth. The fact that you think I kiss ass isn't ....My site... http://www.howtokeepagirl.com

    ..... true at all. I have interest in the people who have interest in the product that I sell. Now the fact that you say I lied about the warranty, I think that you are going a little over the top. I have never not told a customer that our warranty covers physical damage. I have never not told a customer that it covers water damage. Like I said, I just want to let you know I am sorry that I could not service you in the way that you should have been and I hope that you get a really good computer that suites your needs. Have a great dayMy site... http://www.howtokeepagirl.com

    sounds like someone told "William" to check out the site, "your name is on it". He then responded quickly. I recall another thread where this happened.

    If we are posting about people and sales reps I would like to say, I go to the Fry's in Phoenix all the time with my twin and we had a really great experience buying our laptop, everyone was real cool and laid back, no one tried to sell anything, they just DID cause I wanted a laptop.  
    Anyways  
    About the salespeople  
    Umm there is this guy named Ruben in the computer department. I love him. (He wasnt our 'sales rep' we just see him when we go) He is the most beautiful man I have ever seen. Once I heard he was dating one of the cashiers.I just want to say. Ruben, don't date the cashiers, date me.  
     
    So maybe someone will tell Ruben how much I love him how my twin and I walk by the aisle just to glimpse of him. :face-angel:Superhero!

    Dear Paul Macias or William Macias your fake name you like to be called. I would like to tell you why I hate your guts. First of all lets be upfront with things your fake and a bullshitter. You pretend to know shit but you don't know shit trust me. I have said it many times I don't like you and can't stand you, your a erogant lying bastard that kisses ass!  
     
    Another thing is why are you always on your phone its so annoying no one else is talking on their phone or texting all day. You also suck at closing you don't do shit but talk to people and thats great that Adam got fired because now you have one less person to talk to.  
     
    Your a wanta be player always changing girls and dating people as much as I change underwear. It would be sad to think how many STD's you might have.  
     
    Oh and going to customers house and installing bootleg software and doing installations that Fry's has is against company policy and is fraud. I hope you know you can get fired for giving your cell phone to customers so you can go to their house and fix their computers, install their wireless routers, give them bootleg software. Also why do you come to Fry's on your day off...dam you must not have a life if all you do is be at Fry's and you would think you could atleast afford a car. Selling on your day off is also illegal. Why haven't you gotten fired you got into a fight with a Manager Trainee and then you were send email on the clock and got our internet service taken away.  
     
    Your so dumb! You don't even have a car... how can you call yourself a player if you don't have a car? How do you expect to pick up a girl ? On the buss? LOSER!  
     
    Your site sucks and you don't have a hot ass girlfriend because you always fuck with peoples feelings your not a player your a LOSER!  
     
    I hope someone from Home Office sees this and your ass gets fired for the shit you do. No wonder half the people in the computer department hates your fake ass cocky ass self.

    HAHA LOOK!!!!! Anon changed the post, he editted it so it looks like he went and found it from a customer. Aight Anon if that is how you want to play I would like a link to website, don't forget that this post is almost 7 months old. So I would like to see this on another site, (We know you are going to make a user name on another site and try to pass it off as another customer who wrote it) WE KNOW IT'S YOU THOUGH!!!!! I agree with you Biggy, he should leave his name like a man. He is a spinless little grub though and is scared of me. Sorry Anon we all know that you are a wuss and won't man up and leave your name. Like I said before you can't hurt me over the internet. Until you leave your name, You are just CYBERSPACE!!!! You DON'T EXIST until you show who you are and back up your actions haha. I'm done posting to you. MAN UP!!!!My site... http://www.howtokeepagirl.com

    Customer complains , but in truth its the salesmans lively hood , or the customer , comission is a hard sale and heres why.

    It is true at the frys most departments are comission baised only.

    exception (components and the front end) or if your inclined LPS (2011)

    The only way to make comission is the addon warranty or the frys card , that and convince the customer to come to get a quote (add comission).

    when a customer comes in they are usually aimed at the sales item ,
    salesmen get 0$ unless customer accepts a warranty for 3 years not to mention their required to do go backs during their sales shift (free labor)Loss of comission.

    on average the laptop warranty is around 200$ and most customers instantly say no to that option after all they buy a 399$ laptop and dont care about the quality. the other option a salesman has is to upsell to a nonsale computer, or by way of the addon .

    They are now on the draw system 6 weeks to make minimum or your out , and it isint pretty (calculate minimum wage and taxes) if you sell a 2000$ lap top , the comission average is 50$ which is great until a customer price matches(insert online Competitor here) and you get 0 on the deal. the only option is to push the warranty or frys card and hope the customer bites the hook.

    Its definetly a rough ride either way.

    The amount of effort put in sounds a bit more like hustling then it does actual sales.

    when you hire on they tell you you could be making 1000$ a week and of course that sounds awesome ,
    but that falls far short of the reality. if you make 500$ a week your lucky.
