It is really funny to me... when I stole these guys from other companies... they interviewed me... they wanted to make sure that their work environment was an improvement and the jobs they would be doing would be unique. Out of the 3 employees, I hired... two took a pay cut to work for me and I matched one guy's hourly rate. Its not all about money, sometimes its about treating people fairly and the quality work you do. Employees want to be a part of something great and unique.
Now we are on the same page! Thats all I do. The way i see it, if a person isnt working during the busy season its for a reason.......they arent very good!
I take all my crew leaders from other companies.
