Christmas Bonus'

We have gone back and forth on Christmas bonus' over the last few years. We currently pay our sales consultants a Christmas bonus based on them acheiving a certain level of sales for the year. We also pay them an extra bonus fors CSI if they are in the top 10 percent. I'm curious to know what other dealerships pay in terms of an annual bonus for their salespeople.

Also, we currently don't pay a Christmas bonus to any of our sales managers or finance managers. They used to get an annual bonus that was linked in to their monthly one-on-ones and their average scores from those reviews. It wasn't a ton of money, but at least it was something that they could look forward to at the end of the year.
