Mobile’s annual Salary Survey reveals huge differences between sales staff
Virgin Mobile and Phones 4u pay the highest wages to their shop staff, Mobile’s Salary Survey reveals.
Salaries within companies are hugely varied, with the highest sales assistant salary almost three times more than the lowest one.
Of the respondents to our survey, the highest paid sales assistant works at a Virgin Mobile store earning £21,000 per year, while the lowest paid of the respondents is employed by O2, earning just £7,700 per year.
The average sales assistant wage is £12,663 per year, according to the survey.
While all shop assistants at Virgin, Vodafone and Phones 4u earn over £11,000, O2’s shop assistants only get between £7,700 and £ 9,800. The Carphone Warehouse also has some low salaries, with the lowest earning sales assistant on £9,500. However, the top paid sales assistant at Carphone earns £14,500, well above the average wage.
