All I know is that when I worked at tg they paid 15% of the total sale and then 5% once it was produced and it is still that way per a friend that still works there. I have a friend at Scotts also and he said its 50 bucks per sale. My question to you is "If your selling their lawn care, producing their lawn care and retaining their customers for them... What do you need them for?" Trust me I did work at tg for 9 yrs and it wasnt horrible at first but I was still getting screwed. The good paychecks were in the spring but you are working 60 hrs a week. Then in the fall when it dies down the pay was less than unemployment. The point is even if you dont want to work for yourself you can make more money working for a smaller lco and be able to slow down and take your time.
