How does the compensation work at The Invictus Group?

At The Invictus Group we understand that starting a new career can be scary…new co-workers, a new work environment, a new schedule, a new commute to work, and of course new pay.  A new career in sales and marketing can especially be challenging if you have never done it before.  Because of this we have implemented a couple different compensation packages to help cater to individuals both with and without experience in this field.  One option sticks to a traditional base pay format while another option rewards top performers within the company.  Essentially this option is perfect for those individuals that want to be compensated for not only their skills and talents but also their drive and work ethic.  We would love to discuss these options more in detail during one of our face to face, one on one interviews.
