Thats the worst Idea ever, Get them Hungry?I am looking to taking my technicians to a base hourly pay and then a % commission of the job. I need to get them hungry and vested in the growth of the company. Anyone out there with suggestions?
Reduce to base pay ,......ha !!! yea, that will work, and then they will become like the 200 of us on this board that just quit or started our own companies...
Wet Head Chants: "Go Paul , Go Paul , its your Birthday"ha! that's exactly what i'm doing. as of this friday there will be one more of us that did this very thing. the company i worked for was locally owned and i was paid strictly commision. if it weren't for mismanagement and lack of involvement by the owner, nothing would have changed. the company made $$$$ and i made $$$$. the business was sold and we changed to a flat rate company and i now get paid a base hourly wage plus a miniscule commision on sales over and above my quota. i work more and make less. the company pockets way more this way than they did the old way. i learned my lesson, as of 01/09/09 i'm gone. good luck with your scheme, i mean plan.
IL, his profile said he was a carpenter at first. He soon after went and changed it. I got to see it before the change took placeBill, I don't necessarily agree. The guy never led us to believe in his post he was anything but a plumber. While I don't agree with his theory on pay. I do think he was prolly a plumber. You may have more info than me though.
