I didn't think ppl in Retail Sales could earn that much really. I thought it was 9 or 10 an hour.
Depends on market for the flat rate, but you ALSO make commission.
Generally speaking, you can expect to see anywhere between $12-$15 an hour in a decent market.
In Tampa, the going rate is $9.45/$10.00 an hour plus your commission. I am unfamiliar with the current pay scale, but when I was an RSM a few years ago, the breakdown was as follows...
You made nothing off selling a phone, but you make portions from what features you add.
$2/$3 for PHP warranty/PHP Bundle (phone warranty, phone insurance)
50% of the first month of data/text for postpaid accounts... so, if you add a $30/m data plan, you make $15.
Flat $5 for a prepaid activation.
Postpaid Activation is %50 of first month bill.
Many many many other variations, and it changed regularly.
