Question

We are looking to hire a sales person to increase our business. We would like to pay a small base salary and then an ongoing commission of their sales. However, each contract is different, each with a different net profit, one time jobs, long contract, etc. Anyone have a sample salesman agreement for the cleaning industry?


Answer

As with cleaning proposals for service, there is no standard commission sales agreement for the cleaning industry and for the same reason, there are variables that change from job to job and business to business.
Go to the Internet and search for 'commission sales forms' or 'salesman contracts' or something similar until you find a downloadable form you can place in Word and adjust to meet your needs.
BSCAI has materials such as this for the industry and so may ISSA. Check their sites as well. You may find something close to your requirements that will need little editing.
