    How do you guys usually pay your new people? Do you start them out at minimum wage and tell them if they hang around and can handle the job and know what they are doing after a certain time period you will bump them up a bit? Just wondering how to handle this.

    We don't start at min. But always give them the "if you prove yourself you will get a bump" speech. If they do, make sure to recognize it and give them that bump!

    I had an employee get 2 bumps and a bonus last summer.
