I’m considering a change in careers from medical sales to roofing/siding, basically all exterior sales. Interviewed with a locally respected company that wants to hire me but trying to do my due diligence beforehand. I’m used to making about $130k from a 100% commission sales job and feel confident in my ability to sell in construction sales after my learning curve (hopefully short).
The offer is: company vehicle w/ gas, cell phone, laptop, 401k (unsure of any match), 50% of my individual health insurance and 5% commission on gross sale.
Warm leads, business has been around for a long time and has a lot of repeat and word of mouth business. There wouldn’t be any door to door and I can set as many appointments up as I’d like but he said 8 leads is a typical weak with average closing rate of 40% and average sale of $13,500.
Does this seem accurate? The math I came up with is this: 8 appointments, close 40% = 3.2 x 13,500 = 43,200 x 5% = 2,160 x 50 weeks of a year = $108,000 annual. But, I’m guessing this business is somewhat seasonal so I can’t imagine it would even be able to multiply it by 50?
Any thoughts on this offer?
