Thanks. Took my 2 workers 3-1/2 hours… and I did the garage windows. That is not including the drive time, which also included a trip to McDonalds and a gas station. I am desperately in need of a couple of people who want to work. This is killing me!
a lot of times its about all the hot tips in the custfile, techs on a job for the first time have to learn what to do approach wise. many times it takes the same person/team doing a job 3 times to dial in all the efficiencies. a job can go from deadbeat to killer profitable with all the efficiencies in place. having a log of those helps a first timer achieve near that time the first time there. (ex: park here, pull hose to this point, then pull to this point, do this inside first, person 1 does this while person 2 does this, do this method with the screens, use this wpole brush, etc etc it all adds up to a great time once learned, it’s one of the few the leverages we have)
i use tcf to assign a pay rate per hour which is low
i also assign a commission rate (different depending on how many workers).
staff are garanteed $xx per hour but if they do the job faster and the customers are happy they get the difference as bonus
example $100 job =$20 @20% labour allowance
hourly rate $12 job done in one hour customer very happy
staff paid 12 later they receive $8 bonus
