"Retail jobs are very attractive for young people who are just starting out in their career because the demands of employers are not too high, and companies offer training which prepare them for their next activity. Those that remain in the field can significantly increase their salaries, depending on the company they are working for and its size. For example, a sales director can earn even 25,000 RON net. In most cases, for the basic salary of those from this sector, sales bonuses are added," said Roxana Draghici, Head of Sales for eJobs Romania.
