Well, I finally bit the bullet and decided to hire a crew leader. This will a) allow me to work less than the current 80+ hours a week. b) free up my time to gain new customers, and hopefully start a dedicated installation/enhancement crew c) spend time working on my new house over the summer. I'm starting the guy at 14 an hour (he used to work for me a few years ago). Great guy, super clean appearance, well spoken, great customer service. I still have customers ask me about him to this day. What type of pay raise scale do you all use. My goal is to have this guy join my company at ground level, and eventually turn his position into a 50k-100k salary for overseeing everything in the long run. Any advice? Never done this before.
