@bytewhiz45073,

Your

var StaffMember(name,discountPercent){
 this.name = name;
 this.discountPercent = discountPercent;
}

should either be

var StaffMember= function(name,discountPercent){
    this.name = name;
    this.discountPercent = discountPercent;
};

or

function StaffMember(name,discountPercent){
    this.name = name;
    this.discountPercent = discountPercent;
}
