I have two techs. One is a supervisor and the other is just a tech. I don't like putting all my numbers on here, but I'll say my laborers spreading loom are paid more than $12/hr so you can bet my techs are two. They are paid a flat commission per sale, about 7.5% on fert programs and exterior pest control. The commission is devided by the number of treatments and is paid in the next check after the treatment is completed. For example a lawn that's $100 an app five apps. The tech that sold it gets $7.50 after each app is completed. They get 10% on any ad on services they sell during a lawn treatment, such as an aeration and over seeding. I also throw them extra when they get us in for extra services, such as getting us in for the irrigation service or tree work.
