    Anything on ad, you can forget about it. it pays zero. Also the sales associate has to open the box and make sure it works which is very labor intensive when they are selling those non-commission paying TVs in the numbers. It's natural that a sales associate would ignore or elude customers that want the TV with no attachments such as a warranty and accessories. Mitsubishi DLP use to pay well along with Mitsubucks but those are being phased out now.

    The TVs should not be the focus. Every so often a top of the line TV will pay around $60-$100, but that is a bit rare since margins are shrinking. The average is $10-$20 per your mid grade TV. The money is to be made on attachments such as warranties, cables, audio and install. Good sales people can make $500-$1000 a week, you really have to know to navigate the system of Frys, more-so than product knowledge or people skills.

    The commission rates are not straight forward. So you won't get a straight forward answer. Seriously.

    there needs to be a spread sheet generated daily of all the products, the quantities and commissions sorted by commission so sales people can make real money.

    Depends on your luck and skill. Some people just don't cut it. Frys will pay you minimum wage for showing up but you will ending up owing to pay it back if you don't make sales that equal your work week hours. So it is minimum wage to $1000 a week. Ofcourse everyone's luck varies throughout the season.

    User96: How much does the average person make in TV sales a week if you break it down by hour on average?
    In all seriousness it's anywhere from $7.25/hr all the way up to maybe $20+/hr depending on a multitude of factors like what TVs are in stock what kind of customers you get, whats on ad, etc, etc, etc.  
     
    My recommendation: don't work for Fry's. Fry's used to be an awesome place to sell, but it's best days are behind it.

    The commission rates for items change every week. One week a $999 LG will pay you say $20... then the next week the same $999 LG can be marked up to $1099 and pay you NOTHING. Product knowledge means nothing at Fry's. You have to be good at persuading customers to buy the shit warranty and shit over priced attachments (HDMI Cables, Screen Cleaners...etc) If you want a good paying job, look elsewhere. This job is only ideal for students or 30 year old losers who still live with their parents. Fuck this place.

    If you want to make any money being in Audio/Video sales, you should focus on selling any of the Bose items (Cinemate, Lifestyle, Sound Docks, Sound Links, or headphones), Beats, or any of the higher end items that's NOT on sale. Otherwise, any item that's on sale is most likely not to pay any commission at all. You can also make money on the PSC, attachments like cables, installation services like home theater or TV wall mounts. Otherwise, you don't get paid for what you know. If you know how to be there at the right place at the right time, you might be able to hack it. We had salesmen, who were making over 1,000 a week, winding up being on draw recently. Why? Because most of the customers buy the stuff in the ad which doesn't pay any commission at all, but you have to help them anyway and hope they get attachments to those items on sale.  
     
    If you wind up seven weeks on draw (whatever minimum wage Fry's pays you), you get fired on the 8th week.  
     
    If you go into sales, good luck.

    It wasn't quite that bad in my store (34) but the top guys were making half of what they did a few years ago.

    There is a list that can be printed out with discontinued items and commission for those items. A sup has to print it out, if they even know how to find it. At least when I was there, and that's where you make your money.

    There is no straight answer, you could make $0 on a TV. This is how ALL Fry's commission is, literally every item in the store has a different commission, and it is based off of multiple factors. The MAIN factor is GP%. Not the actual GP, but how much item % the store makes off the item. You could sell something for $2000 and if the store only makes $50 off if, you could get $0. Hell, you could sell a top of the line item and it could go on sale within the month, they price match, annd your commission goes from $100 to $0, they will take it back. The money is made off the PSC and accessories. The PSC is pure gp, you make I think 15%, so if you sell a $200 PSC you get $30, often more money than the actual TV itself. You could get $5-30 off the accessories alone. A $100 Monster cable probably only costs the store $20 or so. The store makes more money off accessories than most product, because the products themselves have to be sold at a competitive price, so they tack on the accessories to bring the GP up.

    If you could just sit there and make tons of money off of selling TVs all day, you wouldn't be needed. You need to upsell to higher GP TVs ( which you need to find out by looking in the system ), adding a PSC, or adding expensive accessories. This is how sales is in computers, components, and appliances. Honestly man just look for another job, Fry's isn't worth the headache. They change the commission literally every week. Ask people who have been there a long time, commission is constantly going down. The job can be fun, depending on your coworkers, but in the end it isn't worth it.

    One of the Biggest Slaps in the Face is taking away Your Commission because the Customer made a Price Adjustment on the Item you worked you a** off to sell, ( Or Upsold them to ) happens to sell for less within the 30 days. I can see them taking away the commission on a Return, BUT NOT a Price Adjustment!

    The trouble isn't worth it at all. I'd rather work for someone else who's honest than work for a greedy owner.
