OHAC is dishonest simply because they pay their techs a commission on the systems they sell? Anyone who comes to that conclusion are "simpletons" themselves.
Allow me to explain:
If a tech is dishonest on a commission-based system (or piecework, as it is also known) then he will more than likely be dishonest on a salary/wage-based system as well. A dishonest tech will figure out a way to pad his paycheck somehow whether it be on an hourly basis or a piecework basis. If you don't agree then you're naive. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's not the system that makes a tech dishonest but the tech him/herself.
Yes, I would like to be paid a certain commission for the systems I sell, I think it's only fair. As it stands right now I get a mere $50 for a C/U or AHU & &100 for a full system. If I was remunerated absolutely zero for equipment sales then I would probably be more tempted to just repair the POS than replace it (which would probably be more beneficial for the customer to replace, say) because I would get more hours at the end of the week than I would selling him a new one.
This is all controversial thinking, I know. But only because it's relatively new thinking. I know I've seen more than one thread begun with the subject being how low we're paid as compared to other service industries, & when a co. finally figures out a way to pay their people at top-notch rates you all start new threads claiming how that co. "must" be ripping off the customer, etc., etc. And to top it all off you start posting such fecal matter about companies you know absolutely nothing about! I'm not sure what the legal term for that is but I'm pretty sure it's along the lines of libel or defamation or slander.... Something like that.
