For sure. I put all of my crew leaders on a commission and it has worked flawlessly.
They get a base rate per account if the job is done and then they get and exceptional rate if the job is done to our standards (meets a list of criteria).
This way they are motivated to move quickly because they make more money the more they get done. They are also motivated to do a really good job because their is a big difference in pay if they get the "exceptional rate". I also make a commission chart for up-selling services (mulch replenishment, seasonal color, etc...)
I then give them an hourly rate for the year for side projects, seasonal clean-ups, etc..
