How many years salary does a house cost within 5 miles of your customer base?

What will $300,000 get in your area of the island?
You can’t even get a building lot on the North Fork for that!

Starter houses are higher than that, now. I can't afford to buy here.
It's pretty bizarre, and it's still going up.
Don't even ask me about the taxes.....
I'm in Glen Cove, near work.

I bet you could find a house in Uniondale, where this company is located, for less than 300.
Uniondale, is an interesting neighborhood too.

for all your encouragement. I am just trying to help out my company. I have been successful here before. Please do me a favor.... if you have nothing constructive to add please refrain from posting here at my job post. I just think it would be the most professional thing to do. Do us all a favor and go on to something else.
Uniondale, New York, Long Island.

Just explain your (perhaps misleading) statement about affordable housing on Long Island.
I was told the same thing when I moved here 5 years ago.
The salary to house-cost ratio isn't very good here, which is why I questioned your statement. I gave examples.
Is this your best response? Go away?
Sorry, but I AM being serious.

companies/contractors cant find help!
Becasue the Techs cant find Honest employers!
the Techs are lied to from the beginning, about the job, and then giving false hopes and false impressions,not only of the company, but of the job, and Soon aafter the tech finds out its all lies, jive,and false pretentions that he was hired , he feels betrayed and lied to, and cannot trust the employer he works for and or with!
Then the Tech thinks if its like this now, and or like this in the beginning, how much more or worse is it going to get? this guy has no qualms about lying to me and its a form of cheating on a smaller scale, or at the beginning stages, for a bad relationship, it puts everything at a bad feeling, and makes it uncomfortable to have to look over the shoulder and wonder whats going to happen next!?!
The one thing is that it usually doesnt get better, and if it starts off that way then it will wind up that way or gets worse!
and the contractor/employer , cant seem to stop losing guys or help,
Big turn over means, mis-management!
a continual problem, means failing to recognize the problem and deal with it!
and from there, you always get what you always gotten from what you always done and or do!
A family guy or Tech puts his faith and familys trust and confidence in you, just like a customer relys on the tech's
expertise and trust him too!
I had a job offer, where the employer wanted to take advantage of me, and beat me up on pricing like a chinese restaurant, that pertains to a hiring wage, and i been around and they lie to the techs on how much they have to make and take in, and then its a price that is not advertised on sites, we techs research , ask around and we
take in the money from the customer ,and it doesnt take much to know how much the company needs to make and takes in, Especially since the tech is the one making the money and its passing through his manos, and thats just techs not incuding sales installs etc,
so we heaaard it all before its pretty funny to hear you guys go on and on, with ur bs, and u know who u are, of course everyone likes a good bargain
but u gotta be fair if u want a long term investment thats loyal, and hangs his hat and goes the extra mile with no qualms to do it!
The game from the beginning is if you dont take care of a good qualified tech from the beginning, dont complain or concoct a story why he didnt work or had to leave ya, its just that you tried to take advantage of his intelligence, and u probably wouldnt let him talk to understand that he was just trying to negotiate a fair price to make a living and to meet his needs so that he could meet your customers needs and put them as a priority, without having to worry if hes sweating for nothing, and cant keep up living from payday to payday!
Food for thought and a philosphy of a policy to live with or without?
without a certain amount of Fairness, all the other factors dont come into play!
what would have happened if a guy moved out there to work for you, and found out a short while later u lied, where does that put him , with his family and kids, and you and your customers, u think ur going to be happy? and him? what about ur customers? u think his wife wont be happy? his kids? and how he works or conveys that to u and ur customers?
I could think of some better things to do with my time, than to work for the likes of , getting further behind!
and having to explain, that i put my trust in an advantagous nice guy, and trusted him with my future and family!
the same kind that would get someone upset, and then ask , whats a matter with him?
It takes all kinds?!?

Explain to me that how most of my employees are with me for over 10 years and some approaching 20 years.
Most of my people own homes. I just had a really good "helper" buy his own house within 5 miles of my shop.
All of my employees have medical.All of my employees get sick time, vacation and after two years they get profit sharing. By the way profit sharing means just that. I share my profits and they don't pay tax on it till they retire. It's 100% contributed by the company. It grows in the stock market and I can never take the money away from them. They have no union dues to pay. I pay for training. My managers have company cars and I even pay for the gas and repairs. We have a great family fishing trip each year and an end of summer BBQ to thank everyone for their efforts.
My service techs get nice commissions and they also bring in jobs to me without doing side work because I even pay nice finders fees to them.
Maybe your working for the wrong company??
Just thought you would like to know. This is my last post about this.
Good luck out there.

What is the ratio of your house buyer's salary vs. what he paid for that house?
I might be your best prospect on this board to come apply for your position.
That's the last I'm going to say on this subject.
