We are growing our application side of the business rapidly. We currently have about 250 residential clients and a handful of HOAs/commercial sites. We have one technician who on most days is spraying out of a 200 gal space saver. Employee is a registered technician with the state (VA) and has limited knowledge of weed ID, products etc, however he is a good applicator when he wants to be, which brings me to my problem. His production seems very low and he is quick to find reasons why he cannot get the job done for the day. He complains saying the larger properties require 2 technicians. He makes $18/hr plus a $25 daily bonus if he finishes his route. I set his route based upon a certain dollar amount per day which ends up equaling about 15 lawns (average lawn is 7-8k sf), so about 120k sf of turf per day. He seems to think that this production goal is outrageous, I think he is lazy and we need to find a new tech. What does everyone else think about this?
