    For all you non-commission stores out there who are soon to switch I thought I'd let you know how sales staff are getting paid now at commission stores. For you customers wondering why sales staff act strangely, maybe this will shed some light.

    Fry's sales staff are not paid hourly outside California. Commissions aren't a set percentage of the total sale either, like at other commission stores. One laptop might pay $5.00 another $40.00 and it doesn't matter how much a customer is paying for the laptop. If the laptop is on sale the salesman doesn't make any commission at all unless he attaches accessories or warranty service. Desktops, printers, etc are all the same.

    Most desktops and laptops only pay $3.00-$7.00. Warranties pay 15% of the price. Accessories pay $0.20-$4.00 depending on how much it makes the store and what kind of accessory it is.

    Right now the salesmen making the most money spend their time camping laptops and desktops during busy hours, focusing on selling the three laptops/desktops that actually pay well, attaching warranty service, and maybe 2 accessories they know pay. They're ditching customers who aren't willing to buy the laptop that pays and aren't willing to get warranty service. When customers aren't in laptops and desktops top salesmen are looking out for customers in the ink isle and customers with tons of stuff in their cart.

    Every hour a salesman is in the store, he's paying Fry's $8.50 an hour to be there. If you're working weekday and weekend shifts, your weekends will be paying for your weekdays. If there's a shift where you consistently don't make money, drop that shift. If you are decent at selling you will probably be better off switching to part time weekends only and finding a weekday job that will put your selling skills to use.

    Everyone is making less than they did before. On slow weeks people are making a LOT less. Commissions pay less than before on most accessories, so unless it is very slow getting down the isles isn't worth it.

    Bizz, if employers ask you to clock off or knowingly allow you to clock off for mandatory meetings Fry's is committing time fraud.

    since I am an outside party fries cant fire me again and or press legal action against me or force me to give up names of individuals that want to participate. I can also keep everyones identity separate from each other so fries cant send someone in just to squeal. when it goes live (gets enough members and funding) fries cant do anything at that point unless they want to face a very large set of legal issues for singling out people that are part of a union.

    if you like to email me instead: fried (dot) circuits (dot) union (at) g-m-a-i-l (dot) c.o.m

    We all are busy people. We don't care about you. The world doesn't care about you. People only care for other human beings because of their morals or religious beliefs. If it wasn't for that, people could give a rat's ass about anything. Human Race is Selfish. Everything is about themselves not about others.

    The union will pick up steam January 15th. After every salesman realizes that they're not going to be able to pay their bills for the next three months.
