Distributor OSR pay and commission

Hey y’all,

I’m new to the roofing industry but have prior sales experience in the industrial marketplace. I fielding some offers from a few companies but the commission rates I’m being quoted seem low. I would like to speak with an OSR on the distribution level so I can try and figure out what the true “industry standard” is to make sure I make the best financial decision for my family. If anyone is willing to talk to me about money and what base and commission I should be looking for I would appreciate it.

Fire away. I worked for the two largest firms in North America for a while.

Average is: 50-58k base, auto stipend, 5-7% of GP OR 1-2% of GR
