Hello fellow RBC's! I am looking for a quick piece of advice, but first a little context. The Technical Staffing/Recruiting company I help run are looking to bring on 1-2 recruiters by January.  We…Continue

"I think the concept of draw against commission is pretty clear to most people. The only other thing our firm offers outside of what has been talked about is an initial non-recoverable draw . This gives people an opportunity to build their desks…"

"Gabriel - There's no base in my model....just a draw. The draw can be increased or decreased depending on projected cash for said recruiter."

"I agree with Jerry, except that it is the same scenario when you have inner-office splits. Billing is billing. It stacks up more quickly possibly when you get 'double-bubbles' as we call them when your job is filled by your candidate. In…"

"Jerry has the concept right. If you're recruiter is billing $300K and not earning $150K.....better lock him/her up cause I'm gunning for them. :)Or....they'll say ""f you" I'm going out on my own!"IMHO.....the…"

Jerry Albright replied to Ben Provenzano's discussion 'Commission, the right way!'
"I think you're reading it correctly.  If a recruiter bills 210K then they would make 100K.   On the first 100 they would be paid 45K. One the second 100 they would make 50K. Then they would be paid 5500 on the final 10K billed. This…"

Jerry Albright replied to Ben Provenzano's discussion 'Commission, the right way!'
"Gabriel - might I ask (respectfully of course) what would be wrong with everyone making 100K?  Sounds like you've got some top billing recruiters.  They should be rewarded."

Gabriel Evans replied to Ben Provenzano's discussion 'Commission, the right way!'
"I find this debate very interesting as it is one that I am going through presently.  Can either Robb or Daren explain your plan a bit further?  Are your % being paid out based on monthly billings, and if so, what are you calling billings…"

Robb Norris replied to Ben Provenzano's discussion 'Commission, the right way!'
"You would think a strong commission based plan would be most attractive. Sometimes not. With corporate gigs now paying some very strong base salaries, many good recruiters are opting for that side - reason? In a recruiting firm it can take you a few…"

Daren J. Mongello replied to Ben Provenzano's discussion 'Commission, the right way!'
"Commission the right way? A win-win (IMHO) is a progressive / tiered model. A flat plan at any % is unrewarding for commission-driven recruiters. So it could be something as simple as: Dollars earned between: Start with: $0-$100K = 35% $100-$200 =…"

"Just my opinion, but if you are on the agency side it should be all about higher commmission and ability to earn what you are worth. If you want a higher base salary, go on the corporate side."

Commission, the right way!

There are so many different staffing/recruitment agencies out there that vary in a multitude of ways.  A big component is compensation and how recruiters are going to be properly compensated for services rendered.For anyone out there, I have a couple of intriguing questions that have kept me wondering what recruiters really do want or consider attractive for retention.1) Would you rather have an increased base salary and less commission OR lower base salary with a higher commission?
