BDR/SDR's what's the largest commission check you've ever received in a quarter?

What's the largest commission check you've ever received in a quarter?


What did you sell, what was your quota, what % of it did you hit, tips on how you did it, is it repeatable/special circumstances, what's the story behind it?


Looking to see how high the top is!


At my last company we never had commission, just a guaranteed bonus which was worths a months pay. I got it every quarter which was great, but you could never really earn more than that. I'm on my first quarter of commissioned pay now so let's see how it goes!

Around 15k pre-tax (2014). Quotas was 24 qualified opps a quarter (that AEs approve). I donโ€™t remember exactly but I exceeded quota by ~10 meetings and was in my โ€œkickerโ€. Was moved to the field the next quarter. Honestly I think a lot of it was luck. I was getting prospects on the phone left and right. I was making around 60 cold calls a day to Director/VP of accounting and operations. Itโ€™s amazing how one good week can give you the mojo to crush the quarter. That one quarter is probably the biggest catalyst for my career to date. (Was 24yrs old as a field AE in enterprise software. )

While I was in medical device we hit bonus and our distributorship hit a corporate spiff. Ended up walking away with a 20k check. Just had my daughter a month earlier so it was perfect timing.ย

Best of luck! But for real you donโ€™t need it. Grind, get a mentor, and practice your pitch. Youโ€™ll be bringing home the bacon soon enough!

Do you have to do comp corrections at the end of every sales month because the reporting and finance team never get it right?
