Descriptions of pay arrangements based on production or commission
- I earn either hourly or 30% of production, whichever is greater. Figured on a monthly basis.
- I am paid an hourly rate. Then, once I meet a benchmark in production, I get a percentage as a bonus. There is a tier system for percentages.
- Bonus on production and collections is based on the entire office production and collections, not just hygiene, and paid the difference if I make over my daily goal all month.
