    Ok, so there's not really a forum for this but I'm hoping someone who knows what I'm talking about will be able to shed some light on this. I am about to negotiate a job offer with an Apple Dealer as a salesman. The process has been pretty intensive and I'm surprised that I've learned that this dealer normally starts salesmen out in the single digits on an hourly wage. I am used to working on straight commission and clearing several grand per month in product commissions. This dealer doesn't even pay a commission on macs and ipods but they do on accessories along with the hourly rate. My question is, around how much profit is there for a dealer on macs and ipods? I am thinking of getting them to 1099 me and just asking for a percentage, but I kind of need to know what I'm working with here as far as the margins go. Any insight greatly appreciated!

    How would we know what the margins were if we do not know where you are located, what the store is called, and whether they're public so we can see their 10k and/or any public data?

    I say if you want the job take it unless you are some super duper salesman (which I doubt because you wouldn't be peddling for a seemingly small company), and be done with it.

    I'm talking about general information of course. That post was not helpful at all!
