Finance manager stealing?

Michelle Webb

I started working at a small local dealership not long ago, there are 4 salesman and 2 finance managers. We are suppose to earn a 25% commission on our sales. One of those finance managers has consistently taken 5% of my commission on some of my deals. I am positive this man gets a salary from this dealership. I want to know if this is an industry practice or if this is stealing and is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks for any advice or help, in advance.

You should go to your manager about this

Thank you, but I have no "real" manager to go to. I have an owner and I believe he is complicit in it, unfortunately.

Then you are limited on options. Maybe you should try another dealership to work for.

Michelle Webb

Thanks for the advice, Marie. I guess you are saying this is not a normal practice for finance managers then? 

Marie Nies

No, it isn't. What paperwork did you sign when you were hired ? Was there a payment plan spelled out or some sort of welcome letter package ?
