I am in the market for a salesperson and also one, possibly two service techs or one full and the other part time. Here is what I am figuring. Tell me what you think and remember it is 8 months out of the year. Sales: 10% flat commission plus service when it slows down in the middle of the summer if they want @ $20 per billable hour. Service: I was hoping for someone in the 25-30K (salary) range depending on experience. In the off season they can do what ever they want for employment. I am not a large west coast or southern irrigation company that does millions per season and has money to waste. Cost of living is on the affordable side. If you look around you can still find a home in a working class neighborhood for low 100's.
