    I got a question about your pay package if you work for some one else.

    What are you getting.

    I know it is all different but what is your ratio on Base VS Commission or bonus.

    If you were to sell 1,000,000 in business where would you end up?

    Thanks to the guys who have PMed me. You make a good point about not letting your competition know what you are making. I would appreciate any of you who would pm me a range.

    Generally what I heard puts guy somewhere between 6-8% of Gross sales. Some Before benefits some after.

    couple guys claimed 20%. Find that just a little hard to believe.

    I have heard people in my area making 20%. My question is can you make you sales person sign a contract so they don't leave you for your competitor? Some thing that woud stand up in court if you had too?

    you simple make them sign a non compete waiver. stating that if they leave the company to go out on there own or work for someone else, they can't contact any of your current clients for a period of time. You wouldnt be able to make it for ever but probably a few years.
