* Yep. It's their job. Many salespeople earn much of their income through commissions, or have their performance evaluations tied to a sales quota, so it's no wonder they're eager for the chance to make a sale.

* Happened once in ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' when the sales staff was trying to make sure manager Big Mike didn't get fired. It backfired, though the Assistant Manager who talked them into doing it claimed it was because of his leadership that the sales were going so well, so the PowersThatBe fired Mike and promoted the AM to manager.

* Happened once in ''Series/{{Chuck}}'' when one episode of ''Series/{{Chuck}}'': Emmett was up for review and the staff began slacking off in an effort to make him look bad. However Emmett confronted Morgan and made a deal: If the sales staff was trying made Emmett look good, he could get promoted ''out'' of the store, working for both himself and the staff Emmett wanted a transfer, and the staff ''wanted'' him gone. This lead to the staff acting hypercompetently in an attempt to make sure manager Big Mike didn't get fired. It backfired, though the Assistant Manager who talked them into doing it claimed it was because Emmett look ''good'' as a sign of his leadership abilities. However it backfired when Emmett revealed that the sales were going so well, so the PowersThatBe fired promotion he was ''actually'' up for was ''Big Mike's'' job, and he manipulated Morgan into getting Mike and promoted the AM to manager.
demoted so he could take his place.
