I asked that question to our guide in March when we met him face to face for the first time. The answer is yes to both, commissions and salary. They are paid a minimal salary plus commissions. The guide also said that of his monthly pay 90% is commissions. I am quoting him on this.
My guess, and it is just a guess, is minimum hourly wage based on a 37 hour work week, plus commissions. Another guess of mine is commissions are in the 4 1/2% area, net to the guide. Again, these are just guesses.
It certainly is possible that the sales staff work on a tier basis. In other words, achieve a certain goal or length of service, and receive a different pay structure. Also, I have been in sales for many years and have had my company change our pay structure from salary, to hourly to commission with draw and commission without draw, too many times to count!
