    Bonus, What's A Bonus?

    At the company I used to work for, one tech landed the company a 250K per year maintenance contract. They gave him $20.00 as a "spiff."

    Another guy got a customer to commit to replacing ten old rooftop units. Same thing- $20.00.

    I guess technically it is a bonus; but it had the effect of rendering the whole
    service corps into a "service only" mode. There was much less interest in sales or obtaining sales leads.

    Greed sort of backfired.
    See, the human mind is kind of like... a piñata. When it breaks open, there's a lot of surprises inside. Once you get the piñata perspective, you see that losing your mind can be a peak experience. ~Jane Wagner

    man that made me laugh, what a joke and disgusting company. i once made a company a bunch of money by getting a bunch of swamp coolers approved for replacement wich gave the construction dept work, in return i was given 100.00 wich i used to buy a nice wrench and socket set.

    We get 5% of the job price for a replacement job. Not new construction or ancillary work, but on a heat pump or air handler,or a complete system. Not a huge sum of money, but nice none the less!
