I have made $2500 in commission on my sales this year. This year. Six weeks. I did the math; I’m selling furniture for less than $11 an hour. The company is currently earning interest on sixty thousand dollars of undelivered product. I don’t get paid until shit ends up in people’s homes and everything I’ve sold is either still backordered or waiting for someone’s house to be ready. Right now I expect to make minimum wage this week. If I wasn’t married to someone who makes a lot more money than me, I’d be staring down homelessness right now.
I had a $12,000 ticket last weekend that didn’t earn me a single dime and won’t pay off until May. That big $18,000 sale at the very end of December? Scheduled to deliver on March 20th, still five weeks away; I don’t see a cent until then.
I was at work for nine hours today and sold $13 worth of product. A co-worker came in on his day off and made $3300 in sales in less than half an hour.
Fuck this. I could literally be making more money flipping burgers.
I just applied for a teaching position.
God fucking help me.
