In-house employees get paid vacations, while the sales force works hard to make that happen for them, they don't get anything for vacation pay. They even have to make those days up.
For a territory manager there is no vacation pay. You earn what your produce. So, if you go on vacation in April and take a vacation for six or seven days your may check will be very small. Management will tell to sell extra before you go. This is not possible unless your relationship with the customer is very solid. Over stocking them will cause you more problems the next time you come into the shop. Basically, you will not be able to pay your bill the month after your return from vacation.
The only time you get paid vacation is when you Quit
1 week/yr Paid holidays
