Sales positions, advice needed please?

Looking to find out how and what other companies pay their salespeople? What is the going rate and how should it be structured? I'm sure the answers will be varied but just looking for some input.
Thanks in advance.

Is wouldn’t recommend it to be honest!! I sold more in 7 hours sat on my desk than my sales guy did doing 4500 miles and giving me expenses for nearly 800 in fuel!

If you have someone bringing you accounts than it probably worth it but if they are building new accounts it can take time and be frustrating for the employer having to pay and nothing coming in

Hang on a minute...
Didn’t this post start life as a sales salary question?
Must say I much prefer the 1980s time traveling theme

Re: Sales positions, advice needed please?

It did, and the conclusion I've come to is.

You don't need to be offering £30k+, OTE, Company cars, expenses. Just a BMX, some coloured tyres and matching mushroom grips :thumbsup:

Re: Sales positions, advice needed please?

Was too short for the chopper as I was only 10, my mongoose was top of the line until they brought out the pro class one with holes drilled in the rims between every spoke. Drilled mine out & lost 3 back teeth when I went up a kerb on the way to school
