Thinking of bringing on some help here and was curious what you think is the best way to pay? Talking about a service plumber with at least 10 years experience. I've asked around, some pay an hourly wage of around 20 to 22 an hour. Talked to one company that pays them minimum wage and the rest is all commission, they do pretty good.
How about the application? I was going to do a background check, drug test, and call past employers. Is that enough? Maybe give them a one month probation? Drive along with me and watch them work and interact with customers?
