I see your profile has plenty of information about yourself also.
That's good to talk bad about Walmart and I am sure you have made more money than ole Sam Walton made. Read his book before you discount it, you do have to admit he knew how to make money and that is what you are in this business for. You were right I did work for someone else for more than 20 years and I own my own company now for over 15 years. I do know what it takes to operate a company and the after hours overtime is never used to figure overhead. A $10,000.00 a year bonus is less than the $5.00 an hour price increase you just made for the price of gas going up $0.20. How much was your orporate onus last year to get the books to look like you were not making any money? Before you complain about your employees drive by their homes and see what they live in. Then look at what you are living in. Easy to sit and say it cost so much overhead to run a business and yes it does cost plenty, but that is no reason to not be generous with the ones making that profit. If you are not making at least $50,000.00 per employee you should check into management classes. I bet you are the one I hear about counting wire nuts on the vans and complaining about how many they have.
Here is the marker put your X where you want it.
If I'm wrong, and if you are in fact a HVAC contractor, and if you truly pay your people the way you seem to proclaim to, if you truly place your employees above yourself,let me know who you are. I'd love to work for you.
North Carolina and I have plenty of candidates here without your attitude. Too cynical for me, it would not matter what was said or done you would have to complain about it. You are the typical tech you are bad mouthing.
You would find this to be a fun and informative place to be if you would drop your ATTITUDE. Sorry, that's just the way it is.
Apology accepted and an apology extended from myself. I just get tired of contractors bad mouthing their help. And yes I am a contractor. Every contractor meeting I go to, they all just sit and bad mouth their help. After they bad mouth me for hiring them away from them.
You are a team player and I am sure you know some you work with that are not team players, correct? The ones you have to follow on their call backs. Why are they kept?
Because good help is impossible to find is always the answer. So your employer puts up with there less than adequate workmanship or attitude. Good help is offered a wage to match what they are already making so what is there to make them want to jump ship? NOTHING! So they stay where they are, they know the devil they are dancing with. There has to be an incentive to make them want to dance with an unknown devil and money is what it takes. The overhead to keep a tech in the field for me averages about 2.5 of their wages. With less techs that would go up.
