I have been offered a position as a Catering Coordinator for a small, fairly new restaurant. I want to negotiate my salary and commission. I think I should start off Commission only for the first 6 months or so. What is the standard commission for this position? I am in charge of creating menus, scheduling and event planning with the client and on-site management of the event and staff. I am located in Chicago if that has any effect on the pay scale.
