I'm looking for anecdata about the wage structure for jobs that have hourly pay plus tips or commissions.

For a class I'm teaching next week, I would like some examples of how people are paid in jobs that have hourly pay plus tips or commissions. Something like, "if you work at XYZ Store, you get paid $7 per hour plus a 10% commission on all sales".
So, if you work or have worked at that kind of job, could you please share the details of how you were paid? It would also be helpful if you could add a rough idea of how much you made in tips or commissions. Thank you!
