How much do Gardner White Furniture salesmen make?
I was offered the job, I'm not sure if i should take it. I currently work on salary and make only around 28k a year. The store I was offered a job at is a 5% commission of every sale plus "spiffs" They also offer bonuses for achieving certain goals like reaching 750k in sales and what not. Should i make the switch? If you work for the company, do you think its a good idea for me to switch?
