    Installing duct-work. The companies I had worked for in the past typically have installers and servicemen. Installers are not on call.

    If an installer makes $A/hr, does a serviceman make $2A/hr? $1.5A/hr?
    Can either person do either job?

    Consider something on the distributor level.

    Counter person, inside sales or outside sales.
    "Social networking" is an oxymoron.

    Well I just made the move over to the controls side of the trade. Spent 7 years being on call and getting called out ALOT! Now I still go on call every second week on average but I've only had to go do 1 call and that was on a Sat at like noon. So no big deal.

    We only do Commercial/Industrial and do not advertise [we cherry-pick our customers]. We pay our on-call Techs whether they go out or not, just because of the inconvienience of having to stay available. I am always on call even while on vacation if there is cellphone service available, just for Tech Support to our Techs.

    Try controls. Most control guys I've run into lately don't do on call much less be responsible for any other after hours problems.
