A tech like Mitch....

Theoretically speaking...

How much would someone need to pay someone like Mitch to be an install tech? I might know of a guy that is looking VERY hard for a great employee to lead a few crews.

Just saying.

In this region, a solid lead tech would be 40k with health ins, 401k, holidays, possibly a take home vehicle. That's salaried, not hourly wage.

This is about right I feel.

Someone that leads a few install crews is more like a repair tech than an install tech. They need to be able to walk through a system and spot problem areas and resolve the problems.

They also need to be able to lead an install crew in case there is a no show.

Depends on cost of living in the area.
50K salaried sounds about right for someone that is very experienced and can run any part of the irrigation department. Throw in the extra 5000 for dealing with the freakin' heat every summer.
