Pay depends on your market. When I was in Southern Indiana $12.00 per hour was about as good as it got for a Spray Tech. Course that was a fairly small town. In Northern Florida $12.00 is about the average. I'm on Salary but most are hourly. Hope that helps.

We start at salary plus commision on jobs done. Service calls are done by the tech without commission.

Our best techs with the tankers pull in roughy $20/ hr depending on type of app. They have been beasts though, records for our company this year getting 35 jobs+/day
