"While being one of the higher paid sales associates for the time I spent, most sales associates don't make that much money. They know there's a cap in place, and know that sometimes employees are sacrificed to cut the bottom line. It makes them less likely to want to succeed when their bonuses are often taken away for reasons they aren't responsible for."
