Our sales team sells membership for $30k-$75k and make about $400 on each sale now matter how much. Each month management takes $500 for a “minimum performance charge.” All and all, my colleague has made the company over $400k this year and has only made 0.2% of that ($8k). Sales reps also report to 3 different people on average and there’s no cohesion between the 3. It’s wild.

Sound like great sales people. If they are ever looking to move let me know. I would love them over here at Food & Beverage Magazine

Pretty egregious in my view since that $8k isn’t even close to a livable wage. That $500 “minimum performance charge?” I’m not even sure that is legal. I’m in sales and our commission levels are performance based and range from 22-25 percent of total sales.

Kind of.

Certainly having a base cuts into commission potential, but still! With those numbers they are way off.

I’m handling erroneous IRS collection letters - for example, assess fail-to-file and fail-to-pay penalties based on postal mail delivery dates but not postmarked dates; assessing capital gain taxes on taxpayers whose income is within the threshold subject to 0% capital gain rate. These errors look like systemic failure (wrong formula). Now the Practitioner Priority Line is blew up, and the AICPA May 17 letter says only 2% of IRS calls are answered. What can we do at this point (Continue)

Hi All,
Really need some input. We have our new construction done by April 2023. Builder is giving us 28,000 credits which can be used towards closing cost and buy lock rate for 6 months from now and giving us the interest rate for 6.75% for 30 years from US bank. But I also spoke to credit union they give us 5 ARM for 5.5% but can lock rate in feb 2023. So should go with the US bank with 6.75% plus incentives or wait till feb 2023 and thn lock rates(us bank doesn’t give us ARM rates).

Considering switching from Deloitte to PwC or GT. I interviewed for a similar team to my current one. The team at both PwC and GT is smaller than Deloitte. I have been working at Deloitte for 1.5 years. Has anyone left Deloitte for other Big4 or GT? How was your experience? Or people working at PwC or GT, how do you feel about your team/ opportunities to learn/ work life balance? Does it look bad to leave Big4 before completing 2-3 years?

Has anyone had a challenging time with scheduling an interview call for an AE role with Gartner? The first time, we scheduled for a day/time and confirmed. When that day/time came, they didn’t call so I messaged them to f/u. They apologized since it didn’t make it into their calendar and the spot was taken although I thought that spot was for me & I waited for the calendar invite despite it not being sent. Rescheduling for the 2nd time wasn’t helpful either even with an invite. Seems strange.
