  5. yep... love the job but working over 50 hours a week and getting award wages is not everyone's cup of tea.
    it's good and interesting, but the hours really really suck. And with most retail things you get a break when you can, and unpaid overtime.
    The up side is staff prices rock :D and you get to talk to people about something you love all day :) (apart from the people who still buy open face helmets - i try to talk them out of it as much as i can :()

  6. Re: position vacant:Motorcycle Spare Parts/Accessory Salespe

    Thats funny, $14 bucks an hour. I know if you enjoy the job you will do it. But seriously who do they really think they will get applying? I am like midnight i would drop half my wage and then some. In todays economy who can afford to do that?

  7. Pity it's not closer. I would do it. Be happy to.

    Too far for me though. If they came to say Paky, I would think about it.

  8. i'd do it if it was a casual position (20 hours a week or something) and it does say minimum $14 an hour.

  16. you get paid to work 38 hours, not 50+
    no more no less
    and minimum of 14 an hour is also the maximum

  17. It's pretty sad but this is how much the motorcycle industry pays. For $14 a hour who are you going to get?

    Next time you walk into a bike shop and you get poor service think of the person who spends 6 days a week in the store, has to juggle famly life and gets paid peanuts for the labour at the end of the day.

    Is it any wonder that there are so many posts about the poor quality of the service in many of the stores in Melbourne when the going rate is $14.

  18. Yeah well @ $14 an hour what kind of customer service would you expect? Personally it worries me to think that a newbie could walk into such a place and be given advice from someone that perhaps knows less than them just to get a sale.

  19. Sumoto wins by the length of the straight for poor customer service. PS just has poor service mechanics :)

  20. Must admit, does kind of put you off asking them for any advice....
