25%?? 25% of what??? I surely hope you're not talking about the sales price, and even if you're talking about 25% of the profit of the job, that sounds pretty steep, unless you've adjusted your overall markup accordingly to cover that.robcart said:A salesman could be the best investment you ever made or the worse, depends on how it works for you. If the guy is full time, a salary and comission between 5 to 15%, if no salary then commission up to 25 % is the norm. Good luck.
What type of construction? Remodeling? Are you experienced? You need to sell the jobs yourself otherwise you will be trying to figure out what the sales guy sold.GSMB Inc. said:I’m starting my construction company but, I don’t know how much does a salesman get pay. Commission? What percentage? Hourly? How much per hour? I need help from successful employers.
Teddo said:I still think word of mouth is the best. I had signs on my vans and asked folks if I could put a sign in their yard. I usually had a job in the neighborhood before I left. That was mostly remodeling and paint. I ran a 1 inch ad in the yellow pages, think that got me 3 jobs in a year. WOM, do a good job, it'll get round.
