I hope you guys know that the IBO's that are making 17% commission on S-L products for the promos you are only receiving 83% of that 17%. If you're making 19% commission you're receiving 81% of the 19% from promos. It's all calculated in the net. It's really hard to see if S_L is true to that equation. You would have to be a math major to calculate the actual formula. However you want to see it S-L is not going away from it. Why? You know how much money is generated from charging promos to the IBO's?
I'm interested with what the outcome with the IBO who mentioned they prepared something to do with the commission and was going to present it to management.
The ONLY way we make 19% is on full revenue product.....which are almost non existent ! The PA's screw everything up

They are getting what they pay for - most guys just filling shelves and giving just enough effort to get by. No pride in self or the company they represent - so sad but completely understandable. I know our DM struggles that we don't drink the "kool-aid" anymore but when you lose everything (vacations, personal days, 401K, etc) and then they expect you to work harder for less money??? Even the Dm's cant sell this crap anymore. Unfortunately I am just biding my time hoping for the best and , if not, selling next year unless there is some effort to satisfy the needs of the IBO. Im tired of satisfying the needs of the shareholders.

I believe you will save half of your self employment tax but it will change how you pay yourself.

Guys, is it normal for it to be so dead after football season until the kids get out of school? Man, it stinks out there for me. I'm assume it will pickup when the kids are out of school and people start BBQing. Am I correct? Doesn't help that Frito Lay always undercuts us in price when we put stuff onsale.
February, March and April are always slow, it will pick up, best week I have had in months, now.. lets see what the sell off is like.

Has anyone heard what has happened in Greenville, SC? I heard that one of the regional sales managers is no longer with the company for whatever reason.
Warehouse audit came up over 70k short, snyders started digging and found some other infractions at the location and they canned him.

If they would pay us weekly on what sales we do weekly they wouldn't have people leaving and selling so frequently

Its not about sales for the IBO, its about managing inventory to get paid. Its not a sales driven model.

I tried that and my route volume slowly dropped. At the end of the day we are paid on commission. As long as stales don't become a problem order as much as possible and pack it out. Yes there are some weeks that I barely pay for my load but usually the next week ill make it up. I know a lot of guys that are running far below what their route average was when we were company routes just because they r playing the inventory game.

Cookieman,

This is the most intelligent statement made about how to make money.....unfortunately it leads to empty shelves, but it is what it is. We must sell down inventory each week in order to make any kind of money.

if we got paid by sales per week instead of playing the inventory game every week we would be happy and want to maximize sales weekly instead of worrying about deferments and inventory. It wod also grow sales for the company. It would be a win win for everybody
