Thom Barends, sales manager, on compensation: "We have moved to a combination [commission and salary] plan for sales consultants. This has improved employee morale and has reduced turnover. When an employee has a bad month, they are happier with having a salary to fall back on. This system also drives them to sell more to increase their earning potential."

Barends on hiring: "We hire both experienced and nonexperienced sales consultants."
