I think you mean commission not commotion right? I can't really say how much you'll make. Are you full or part time? Depends on how much traffic is in your store. I know the pay is tiered. If you make 0 to like 60% of your quota, you get $X per add. Renewals you get $8, so that's easy. But the tiered thing is hard to follow. I think if you hit 115% or higher of your add quota, you get like $45 per new line. It can pay very well, but is it worth it? Not sure. You came too late. Under the old billing system, it was worth it, but this new system may not be. It's a horrible billing system and either doesn't work at all or is incredibly slow. Many long time as well as newer employees have quit or are seriously looking at other jobs outside the company. I think you're coming in on the tail end of USCC's life. Don't expect to make similar commissions under the new system. A transaction that took 20 min in the old system now takes at least 1 to 1.5 hours, which is why there are so many angry customers. I'd say if you see how bad it is in your first 2 weeks and hate it, I'd look at finding a new job before you quit this one. USCC really F'd up their entire company with this new TOPS and there is no turning back. You are officially on the Titanic after it hit an iceberg in August. You can get on a lifeboat (new job) or ride the ship to the bottom of the ocean. Sad
