    If my guys come in and work, I will give them a paycheck at the end of the week.

    always popular production bonuses

    they have to account for f ups too though.
    also, the bonus can be made known with certain attainable goals for production(which also takes in account for f ups) to match certain bonus dollars. the rest is math on your part to find the right numbers

    we take our crew leaders on a weeks vacation before the season starts from last years production. you must hit a quota to go.

    vacation is paid for completely including food.

    i realize this is big, but gives an example

    Benefits and possibility of advancement and a "fun but professional" atmosphere. And of course steady hours.

    You'll get the career employees, more or less, not the summer college kids. Summer workers care about cash, guys trying to raise a family need money and help in other areas.
