“my current job is a joke but having zero stability is making me sick.”

Sounds like a no brainer! Take the new offer!

If the company isn’t paying you for training, the company is crap.  No brainer.  I understand how commission only sucks because I used to do it, but if you’re taking a position that stable, as long as it really is that stable and not just some regional manager blowing unicorn dust up your butt like most commission sales jobs, you shouldn’t be concerned.

if you are good at it and you like doing it and it pays the bill then its obviously a win win win!

If you are really worried about the salary thing then work the comission only thing for a few months, at least until after wedding planning nonsence is over. 115k a year is nothing to skoff at, and prehaps after seeing a year of your quality work they will be more apt to offer you the sallary. 

Does working on comission mean that you can take extra / deny some projects that might not fit you? Becuase if so that could be golden for wedding planning. You could potentialy take it easy a month or two before the wedding to save your sanity. 

Best of luck on your new job!

If this is a job that is going to be more stable in the long term than I think it makes sence to take it, wedding plannning time is nice, but you still need a job after the wedding. With the extra money you will be making you can put some of it towards a wedding cordinator so you don’t have to plan everything your self. If that is something you and your Fiance would be willing to do it might be a good idea to keep your sanity. just a thought.

@EncoreBridetoBe:  If you don’t mind me asking, what company is it? For a company like Stryker, it’s totally realistic.  For a company selling insurance or any MLM, like Primerica, it’s blowing unicorn dust up people’s butt. 1099 jobs are hard because they invest no money into the employee so they stand to lose nothing, but the employee stands to lose everything if they aren’t as successful as they hoped to be.

Have you talked to your current company about paying you? Maybe you should bring it up before making your decision to leave.
