    would vary by region of course, but "going" rate for just a technician here is $14-$15/hr, maybe production incentives also

    I have been hearing $8-$12 at MegaLawn. Less than I made 15 yrs ago there!

    My buddy called me today and was telling me that he came out into their warehouse on a recent AM to leave and there were TWO...not one...but TWO trucks overflowing. LOL

    21 bucks an hour??? 3 dollar raise after....??? Your joking right. We are talking about Scott's ??? We hired a tech from Scott's once. Between the Chinese overtime and the quotas he was lucky to gross 400 a week. Don't know of any company paying a tech that much. Especially the big companies. Are you sure??
