    (not a rep) No launch day here. My Verizon store had the iPhone 4 on release but will not have the iPhone 4S. I live in the boonies so my only other option was online preorder.

    Lol I want to work at your store! I think we are doing the pizza thing, but as far as the T-Shirts, I haven't been asked for my size at all.

    Honestly, I think we are all massively drained from this weekend's pre-order hoopla at our store. I know a few were really mad about having to come in early and work a double, only to be told not to direct fulfill unless the customer insisted because it would tank our APO numbers. Plus it didn't make any sense anyways since it would take 14-21 days, when you could just come in launch day and get it then.

    I honestly just want to get it over with so I can go home and start playing with mine that I ordered from Apple. But I'm definitely down for some money making. Not a lot of questions are being asked about the 4S in my area, so I'm hoping everyone decides to come out.

    There are shirts, we got ours in already.. they're black with the at&t globe on the front in a rainbowish colors, reminds me of the old macintosh logo actually.. and the back says "at&t now offers the iphone at twice the speed"

    Better than the usual polos for sure.

    and about commission, apple is the only phone we don't get paid on the data plans for, kinda lame.

    Cool, how about for the people waiting in line? shirts, pizza and H2O? or none?

    I have always wondered though, how much do you guys make on commission? does selling an iPhone gets you a higher commission or is it by plan?

    I hate to say it but I wouldn't pay commissions on iPhones. The suckers virtually sell themselves.

    Just sayin'. :rolleyes:

    i think your not going to find a rep willing going to talk to you about how much commission they make on each sale, and it's also very hard to understand for a person who isn't in the business. I for one work at an att cor store just got promoted to manager the first of this month. Rep from florida you must not work for a COR because in IL where i'm from all features except insurance is paid out on.

    I'm glad to see you all are excited about launch day. Honestly, I would not want to be anywhere near AT&T or Apple on launch day. I feel the same way about that as I do Walmart on Black Friday.

    question for you ATT reps, i'm doing an upgrade swap from one of my family line's dummy phone with no data, do I have to go into the store to do this or can I call 611? will need to cancel the data plan as well, will that be a problem?

    Thanks,

    Yea at a dealer, they really fudge us on iPhones at dealers.. Used to work for COR for a few years, but it was way too long of a drive from where I live, then tried T-Mo and they're just too slow LOL. So at an at&t dealer couple miles from me... The pay is alllll great except for iPhones... stinks :/

    maybe not the phone itself, but probably on all the accessories, apple care, insurance, feature add-ons, plan upgrades, etc. my local att store had all these crappy bundles of old cases and low quality screen protectors, tied together with cheapo balloon ribbons. they were pushing them hard.

    HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHA

    Excited? HELLLL NO.

    The amount of commission you make off 50 iPhones = 10 droid or blackberry sales. (for verizon at least)

    Since verizon got the iPhone it has hurt our commissions. Now i own a store so it's a little different, but overall me and my employees make less $$ b.c of the iPhone. Accessories help a little but the different in overall profit for the store is anywhere between $20-35 profit for an iPhone compared to $150-$250 profit on a droid/BB.

    & iPhones are more expensive to keep inventory since we have to buy them for full price w/o tax.

    I'm not sure what you are asking. But yes u can call 611 or go to the store to upgrade. However, u said the dummy phone has no data then said you will need to cancel the data plan as well?? Which phone are you going to, iPhone??

    ----------

    the commissions really vary per sale. you get paid on accessories, like outer boxes, spec cases, bluetooths, jamboxes, etc. Features, data, insurance, applecare, screen protectors, new activations, upgrades, etc. So just about every sale is different. Im at a busy store, my commission checks are usually $2500, then you also get paid a base pay too. So its pretty decent.

    I also work at an authroized retailer so I feel your pain for the Iphone commission! Other than that I love the job...HATE IPHONE LAUNCHES! (since this is your first time...good luck!)

    ----------

    OMG this just made me laugh!!! My thoughts exactly...minus the verizon part (I work for an AT&T authroized dealer)

    that stinks that verizon pays out less on iPhone sales then anything else, it makes no sense since a smart phone is a smart phone your getting data on any smart phone sold, to clarify a little bit. no rep who sells gets paid on the sale of the device, the company is already losing money on discounting the phone for the customer. Your enticement for selling the smart phones or more expensive phones is because you get paid on the extra features that are required to own an iPhone or smart phone. at att cor stores, you get paid off the contract renewal which is called a ga (gross add or new line) and an opp(opportunity) so thats your first chunk, the amount you get paid on this depends on the MRC of the minute plan of the customer the higher there minute plan the better you get paid off of this. usually between 5 and 8 dollars. the second place you get paid off is features (data, messaging, navi, etc.) the 3rd accessories. 4th(customer service satisfaction scores) yes this affects our job heavily so don't bs on these surveys they are taken very seriously. if a rep gives you bad service yes feel free to voice yourself if you received good service don't trash them just because. the last you get paid off is wired sales internet home phone tv etc (only exist in certain states)


    checks depend on how well you understand your commission structure if you know how to read it and understand it you know what you have to do to maximize your earnings. also att cor reps have tiers in a nutshell it entices you to keep selling once you reach your goal there are different levels 100 percent to goal 125 percent to goal and 150 percent to goal. the bigger the attainment the more you get paid per each thing.

    2500 is a midrange comp check at att i've earned at times anywhere between 1600 to 4500 a month over my career as a rep at first i earned little commission because i didn't understand the comp payout plan. Once i understood it and knew where i had to maximize to get to the next level making money is easy. Most reps i know including myself average on the low end 45k a year to about 70k(70k very easy to achieve if you work hard and know how to make money smart)

    You all understand the Apple does not discount iphones very much to retailers.

    This is the root of the spiff problem and not Verizon or AT&T.
