early this year we had a salesman contact us about a job. he was weird but was willing to work for free for a week or so to show us what he could do. let me say again he was weird but he went to ten houses in one day... got 4 lawn accounts... and thousand dollar tree job... and i think 3 or 4 we got mulching jobs. then we liked him so we had to discuss a contract. he got us to give him 25% on jobs he got us. he does all the work on these jobs even if theyre referals from jobs he sells and closes the jobs. thats the major part of his salary..he only gets a few bucks on the lawn accounts. my question is is the 25% on the PROFIT MARGIN too much to be paying this guy. he has been pretty steady but then he broke his leg and has been out for a while.
