    Keep in mind it can vary from market to market but these numbers seem to be pretty standard.

    1/ How many customers does one crewman sevice?

    Usualy 400-600 per round depending on route density.

    2/ What is their average Application cost?

    in the mid $40's

    3/ How much does a Crewman get paid and how is there bonus structured?

    start at $10 an hour, 3-6% bouns over production goal

    4/ Do the Crewmen plan there own route or is a job sheet prepared numbered 1 to 25 with the order to do them in?

    depends on the branch, most are given sheets with the propertys they need to service that day and need to figure out the directions themself, if your office staff is any good they will be in a decent order, if not have fun driving in circles all day

    5/ Do there vans have sat nav as standard?

    no, They are starting to play with nextel's with gps tracking, but this seems to be mostly for door to door sales

    6/ What is the total Cost per day in $ a Crewman does on average on fertlizer + weed control apps?

    usualy $1000 per day but can go much higher depending on how far behind your branch is in the round or what bouns is being dangled over your production managers head that month

    7/ What is the total Cost per day in $ a Crewman does on average on AERATION apps?

    not to sure on this one, but ive heard $1000-$1500

    8/ What is the total Cost per day in $ a Crew does on average on DETHATCHING apps?

    none of the chemlawn branches i know off offer dethatching.

    Hope that helps
