Marketing of the positions inflate what's actually available to you. Ex. 'Start work at 9am' Actually means, start work at 8am on most days, with 8.45am being the exeption to the rule. Ex. 'We promote from within' Actually means, work for us for 2+ years in the same retail role, and we *might* consider you. Ex. 'Write your own paycheck' Actually means, we'll increase targets without warning, and after tax, commission is no more than 3% of what you've sold on our behalf.
