Answer

Company A is better on commission, but other considerations are possible (employment benefits, vacation time, bonuses, etc).

Work Step by Step

If one is purely considering commission, then clearly Company A is better because it pays a higher commission rate (10% vs 8%). However, there may be other considerations that could sway one to Company B. For example: - Health insurance and other benefits (maternity leave, disability benefits, etc). - Vacation time/sick days - Ability to rise up in the company and possibility of salary increases in the future - Location of company relative to your home Many other considerations are possible.
