I am in need of another fulltimer. I have one guy thathas worked off-on for 5 years. Recently he was offered a sales job - don't no what. He calls wants to talk about fulltime status as I offered him 2-3 weeks ago. I have called around to other peers and I have an idea of what they pay but where do i go. I would have him in charge of our mowing, have him get spray lic and head up a division in our snow removal business. Now do I pay him hourly, ot after 40? OR pay him salary from say march - till nov, then go hourly. OR just say here is $X salary, x amount for simple retirement plan, health is on your own. One week paid vac for now go from there. Now were usually pretty business. Winter gets slow, some odd/ends, ton of equipment to go thru, snow, salt/sand, etc. I just want some of your guys opnions on what you do. What you think I should do etc. I have a feeling this guy will want hourly due to high volume of hours but then i would add extra part time help to reduce ot pay and have things done on time.
