How to raise your commission rate
In addition to knowing how our pay for performance works, please use the following as a guide on how to get to the next level of pay if you ever find you are not at the top commission rate:
- You are paid a percentage of each job
- The MORE you work, the higher the percentage pay you make for the week!
- Give yourself a raise by working complaint-free and efficiently so you will be assigned more jobs and hours!
- The more job hours assigned, the higher percentage pay you will make for the week if completed
- The fewer hours you work, the lower percentage pay you’ll make for the week
- Absences & arriving late will hurt the commission you make
MOST IMPORTANTLY: It only takes 1 absence or tardy to affect your commission rate for the entire week
Each employee’s schedule is built around their quality. If you’re doing quality work and don’t have legitimate customer complaints, we will work on keeping you on the commission tier that you want to be on. If we are receiving complaints about your or your work and/or your quality rating drops, we will lower your hours and give you fewer homes until your ratings improves.
Example Week One:
- If you work a really short day all week, you might only clean 1 job each day.
- An average job is approximately $150 and has 2.5 assigned hours (“Job Ticket Hours”)
- Therefore, you would drive to 1 job location, spend about 2.5 hours and go home for the day
- If you did that for five days (Monday thru Friday) you would have worked a total of 12.5 Job Ticket Hours which is less than part-time
Example Week 2:
- Depending on how you did during week one (quality, speed, dependability) we will give you more jobs, more work
- If you worked a longer day for a full week, maybe 2 jobs a day averaging 6 Job Hours per day, you have worked 30 Job
- Ticket hours in a week, bumping you up to the next percentage level for the whole week!
Example Week 3 or 4:
- Depending on how you did during week two (quality, speed, dependability) we will give you more jobs, more work
- If you worked a longer day for a full week, maybe 2 larger jobs a day averaging 7+ Job Ticket Hours per day, you have
- worked 35 Job Ticket hours in a week, bumping you up to the next percentage level for the whole week!
In Example One you would have generated around $937.5 in sales for a 12.5 hour week
- At 38%, our lowest percentage pay level, your pay would still be: $356.25
- $356.25 that first week is not bad for less than half a day’s work, but our goal is to get you to full time and TOP PAY!
In Example two you would have generated around $2250 in sales for a 30 hour week
- At 40%, our 2nd level percentage pay, your pay would be: $900 for just a 30-hour workweek
- $900 is not bad for a 30-hour workweek, but our goal is to get you to full-time and TOP PAY!
In Example two you would have generated around $2625 for a 35 hour week
- At 42%, our 3rd level percentage pay, your pay would be: $1102.5 for just a 35-hour workweek
- If you had added a couple of extra job hours by doing larger homes your pay could be as much as $1200!
