I and I think many of us would like to know what size companies we are talking to on Lawnsite.
Ones too few, Twos a business, Three is a crowd, at least when you have less than 40 accounts.
I have no employees, but i have a team leader and a team member.
Year round three incuding myself, and usually a fourth in the spring for a couple weeks.
Had four employees last year, five including me. Plan on adding at least one more this year. Next year who knows!
I only have one employee but I think they are a necessary evil. You read all kinds of threads and posts about PITA customers but what about PITA employees. Don't get me wrong, my one employee is a nice enough guy, we get along, good worker and good with my clients but he can also be a baby, b**ch and a sissy.
I'm a solo opp, but have part time help in the fall
too few when we're doing the work, too many on payday.
i had 6 last year..........this year 2..............Too much of a pain in my A$$.
Not sure if it is worth it, I had more complaints last year than ever. Finding good help is not easy, yeah there are some good workers, but I couldn't find any. I got 2 great worker, which they do around 70-80 yards a week.
I'm solo, so I do around 40-50 a week, I do customers that complain the most, because for some reason they only want me doing thier yard. They also pay more, duh, anyway.........you gotta love this business
good luck to everbody, hope ya'll have a great year
we had the same problem until we took my brother out of the field and had him supervising the crews. back when we were having problems, we had a good foreman, but when the cat's away....
