General Manager Rich Perdue on recruiting: "When a new recruit is brought on board, they are given a starting salary while training. Eventually, they are moved onto a sliding commission type pay plan as they become more comfortable with the sales process and their ability to sell. They are also paired with a seasoned sales staff member so they can learn from an expert."
Perdue on showing employees that they are valued: "Each employee has the opportunity to have a special day. All 79 employees choose among charter boat fishing, pheasant hunting, spa day, tickets to a Detroit Lions game, ziplining or playing golf."
