Hey all - looking for some advice. I’ve been in this sales manager role for a little over 2 years now and I’m making $115k for salary. However, I have no bonuses, no commission, no additional income no matter if I hit the sales targets or not. Thoughts on this?

Wild. Polish up your resume and start conversations while the market is still hot! Commissions/bonuses are what make a sales team motivated. Why else be in sales?

What industry are you working in? From my experience, you can easily get 115-140k + as a sales manager and still get commissions(80/20 split) and stocks. Might not be as lucrative as top performing sales reps, but still.

That’s weird that they are all at different rates… isn’t that what commission is supposed to do?

I’ve enjoyed being commission based but there is a niceness of getting a guaranteed check at the end of the month. I’m younger so a small check might not hurt me as much but if you have a family sometimes those steady checks can be very promising to ensure you always can provide a roof over their heads

Request a promotion! If not, look for a job that gives you what you make as a base plus incentive.

This is unheard of to me. This pay structure would attract people that are comfortable with a steady paycheck and not go getters who want to make the extra money for themselves and the company (aka the sales talent). What do you want? If you are motivated by achieving targets then go find something better and bet on yourself. If you have obligations and a life that needs to be sustained as such that make it risky to leave, then stay. But there is certainly better money to be made out there.

Very surprising to hear no commission structure. Do you feel motivated? If so, that may not be a problem!
If not, I would reconsider.

I work in Phoenix, specifically in Mortgages, but only reason I work the structure I do is because I haven’t been able to secure a good base pay, 115k I’d def accept even down to 90k I’d accept as long it was secure but last year I made over twice that with commission but I don’t like the stress of needing to produce to survive

Incentives will drive you as much as the groups. Pit this on the table for you and the team

Know your worth - leave and find another job that gives you what sales people should be compensated for. Sounds like you’re just working for free.

I’m amazed at your Salary - I must be doing something wrong!

At this point I’ve proved myself & want to make sure I am content w/ my salary. I was told get a cert but later got offered Sys Admin anyway. How do I go about this?
