    do you think that the guy thats making $36K with a comission of 2% on a sale is going to WOW you with their knowledge of fit and construction? bleh! no! only when the salespeople are as skilled and trained as the tailors in the back shop, and theyre paid well enough by the retailers to make a good living.

    First of all the top salespeople at Saks make a godd living, I’m not crying for them.
    Secondly, it is the Apple employees that are most likely to be making $36K.

    I have personally done enough in-store seminars for department store employees that I know a lot ( not all) of them are just plain lazy. Vendors spend big money to send employees to stores to educate the salespeople but they are often just interested in the free gifts.
