They are there for a reason....to fetch the product that you have researched and know you want.
Or to upsell you something you don't need. I've experienced and read too many stories myself to place any confidence in the advice they give. I like going there and playing the dumbass asking stupid questions to see what kind a response I get and to build their confidence. Then... Bammo! I lay a whopper on them.
"Ummmm... Ummmm.... Let me go talk to my manager."
I'm sure some of them are very adept but from my experience the majority of them know as much as the next guy which is not that much.
