I saw that last week..... interesting read. I had a sales person up until about a year and a half ago. I would have never let the guy sign deals and prepare contracts. I made him get the requests for proposal and then I'd price the job and he'd assemble the proposal. If we sold a job I'd do the contracts myself and then take over from there. Comissioned employees are the worst ones..... they are completely motivated by money and not what is good for the company.

Ouuch...John is such a trusting guy and starts off with the best expectations for a person. But he will make you pay if you cross him for sure. TRUST BUT VERIFY
