This is incorrect on very many levels. Most bosses and managers want to push the employee to work well beyond their limits. Vans get dirty it's a fact of life it's all apart and name of the game. If you don't want to pay me to keep the van clean then let me bring it in and you have a helper organized it and clean and wash it while we go over weekly paperwork. If a plumber hurts himself cleaning his van on a Saturday when he's not supposed to be working and let's say for example he falls and breaks his ankle. Like I did. You want to know what the boss says? He says sue me.a dirty van always bugs me and i am sometimes in that boat as well. what irks me is when these jobs are time and material. put the stuff back where it belongs on the customers dime. cleaning the truck on company time, unbillable , should be on the employees dime.
For all you Young Bucks out there. Take your time after every single call pull into a parking lot and organize and clean your truck. Do not let the Boss Rush you around. You will find yourself more organized and make more money and then the boss will leave you alone even more. Because you're doing well. He will see your truck and he will appreciate it. Take the time
