I am ready to transition my Salesmen to a base salary with commission to incentivize new hires & reward my long term guys. My industry is aftermarket auto parts. I am leaning towards a 2% commission but am flexible and just need help in figuring out salaries.

Hello! Good that you're thinking about employees. I have a question that is definitely not my business, but if your guys' business is small, did you consult with them about this and how they're feeling with this decision?

Yes my experienced guy loves it. Doesn’t know what to put as a base. Says he wants it. Trusts me to figure it out. Says he’d prefer 2% commission over 5% with a higher base.

Nice! At my company we did this a couple years ago, and in the end, everyone was happy. They were performing their duties in a smaller time frame, and even if they weren't working as much as previously, productivity increased because with a base salary, you make the same amount regardless of how much you worked, so I hope it goes well with your guys and best of luck!

So I recently asked for an higher salary, which I have been given. My role and responsibilities are the same. I effectively received the agreed amount of money on my latest salary slip but I didn't sign any "new" contract. Is this normal? How does this work? This is my first salary bump and I don't really know how is it supposed to happen.

Thanks in advance

Hello everyone!
I recently found out that I was being paid less than everyone in the team (more than 25% gap to more expe teammates, around 15% less than new hires)
We all had the same responsibilities, I consider I even had a heavier workload (talking in past tense since I very recently made an internal move).
Things to consider:
On a work visa
Non-white
Non-male
What would you recommend doing?
Keeping it to myself?
Speaking up? How? With who?

-TIA

Hi everybody,

Looking for some insight/curious to hear how others would handle this situation:

I have an offer I want to accept; I was trying to negotiate for a signing bonus… but they’re not budging.

The issue is, the start date is in a month and I’m up for a promotion in a week at my current company. I would like to leave before I get promoted, I think it would be pretty low of me to accept and promptly quit.

Not the new employer’s problem? Or can/should I try to leverage this?
