    Are you looking for something in particular?

    Can I help you find something?

    If you're in a grocery store what could you possibly not know where something is? The cereal is in .... the cereal aisle... the fruit and vegetables are in the produce section... the soft drinks are in the soft drink aisle... the paper towels are in the..

    so what is the range he can expect to earn per year?

    I don't see the point in paying commission. If I'm buying or not buying something, the sales person had no influence either way. Most of the time, they are simply the person who rang up your order at the register, that's it.

    I think it's funny when you go to the register and they say, "Was someone helping you today?" and when you say no one, they obviously just enter their own name

    My husband has a personal shopper. When I run in to get him items, I don't need the personal shopper but he insists on following me around the store, pointing things out. Finally I had to politely tell him to back the fuck off. My husband might not have a clue about shopping but I do...if I do not use the services, his shopper does not get commission.
    Personally, I do not mind if a sales person introduces themselves and asks if there is something in particular they can assist with...that is their job. If I don't need their help, I really don't need their help.

    I like it. Makes me feel welcome, and catered-to. Saves me time searching for sizes, etc.
    They typically do it at the higher-end places... Juicy, Lucky, bebe and up.
    Good luck finding any help at Kohl's or JC Penney. There you're lucky if the clothes are even folded as opposed to being in a pile on the floor.

    THIS being said I rarely shop designer stores (because I can't afford to) but when I DO it's at the Outlets. And what's great is that the staff at Lucky Brand, Diesel, etc treat you exactly the same, even though you're getting your $100 jeans for $50. The stores are just as nice too.

    God, I love the outlets! :wub:
