I am in the process of negotiating a salary for a local Lawn business that is doing very well and looking to grow. I’ve never had to negotiate a salary before and if anyone had any tips that I haven’t thought of let me know. At this point I am mainly looking at ways to cut expenses whether it’s wages, drive time, facility cost and diving into the owners business expenses to see what can be improved. I’m trying to justify my salary, so I can show on paper that my salary could be covered by a few simple time changes that could start immediately. Im licensed and know how the show works but I’m always open to new ideas. I feel bad because I used to be a hand getting less than 40 hours a week so employers could avoid benefits, but now I’m cutting hours to save money. any thoughts?
