Need the opinion of the people in the industry here....
I got bitten by the bike bug about 4 years ago, and have been heavily into mountain and road riding since. In that time, I've bought and sold more than a dozen bikes (around 18, I think), as I like to try out different designs (hardtail, softail, full suspension, steel, carbon, scanadium, etc.).
Note that I'm a web applications developer, with no sales experience per se, but the fact that I've been buying and selling my own bikes makes me think I can do it.
I'm self-employed and I'm doing a project that will last 6-12 months - during which time I'll have no income, so I will have to find at least a part time job.
I see that my local Supergo is hiring (I know them some people here HATE Supergo), and I'm thinking of applying for a part time sales associate position.
How much do bike sales people make? I'm assuming it's hourly plus comission? Because Supergo is a discount chain, soes that mean the salespeople there make less?
Thanks for any input you may have on this subject!!!!!
