Actually that is a fairly accurate range, I work at a Sam's club kiosk in Witchita, Kansas. Not exactly a bastion of techno-savvy consumers, and my worst part timers make $15, and I make $30+, in December my lowest rep averaged $21/hr.

Not only are Sam's customers loyal, but Radio Shack training is top in the industry. I left the corporate store because Sam's had all the traffic in my area.

Also, there will be no loss of jobs, and even though the top end reps may drop to $25/hr more reps will be promoted to manager due to there being more Target locations opening in current markets than there were Sam's Club Kiosks.

Also Target is a better contract, we are more integrated with the Target location than the "arm's length" at best and "bitter fued" at worse situation in the Sam's clubs, as well as our reps actually get discounts at Target, we give Target gift cards for trade ins instead of "SCK only" cards so trade in/recycling is used much more.

AND as icing on the cake the Target stores already have the iphone4 for ATT and will likely be one of the Tier 1 dealers to get it at launch for Verizon, which bolsters sales quite nicely, nearly doubling sales at the Target kiosks in the central US region in the past couple months.
