once a groomer and finish the academy, i heard you still are hourly and have to do 100 dogs, soon goes to commission only. during slow days/slow times of the year-is this a bad paycheck?

Cindy D in Virginia Beach, Virginia said: if you don't commission out then it will go by your hourly pay, which is decided on the percentage of dogs you do on average.

actually your hourly pay was decided when you first were hired, then with the raises that you have received since then. so basically you make 50% of what you bring into the salon (your commission) or your hourly rate, whichever is higher.

i was hired for a really low hourly and so after 2 years i still make less that what the new hires make. its lucky that i usually get my commission.
