1-2 of 2Negotiating Higher Pay
No such thing!
I've asked for raises and I am sure a lot of others have as well BUT they do not give raises UNLESS you move up as a lead, manager etc. My manager, store and district manager just laughed and say "Sell more and you're make more" but I did that and it doesn't work because they cut our commission rates to peanuts. The only advice I can honestly give is to find a better sales job. Look for one that deals with technology/services. They will pay you higher hourly rate, commission and more benefits.

Many of us fall into this category being in the retail industry 15 years underpaid & overworked. Market yourself more.
