    not correct. there is a base. I am a cerec rep. I have a base and car allowance and expense account and I get a commission on top of that. It has been this way for the past few years.

    So, what branch do you sell out of ?

    How are sales of the units going for you ?

    There is a base and in the beginning you get a car allowance and expenses. But that goes away when you go on the growth plan. Growth plan is when you have been fully trained and are able to generate sales. The growth plan has a higher salary and commission when you reach a specified level of sales. The Cerec specialist position is one of the best there is at Patterson but is very much dependent on the demographics of the market. Large metro markets tend to do very well with cad/cam. Most of your leads come from the territory reps which are assigned to you. If you have newer reps the position is harder than with more tenured reps. There is quite a bit of lifting equipment and for sure you have to be computer savvy. Knowing dentistry very well and being able to navigate the software and being comfortable with treating patients with the doctor is essential. There is a lot of hand holding and training after the doctors buys. The new Cerec is selling very well and is on back order. Huge pipeline of upgrades as well.

    There is no "growth plan" for equipment and cerec specialists. They are salaried employees indefinitely because they don't have a list of their own accounts. They rely on the TM's to generate leads for them.

    Your information is outdated. There are in fact two different plans for specialists.
