Here are my Questions:
1.Where have you found success in finding good employees, Monster.com is expensive but does it work…what are your methods?
2.Im looking for part time help…Sounds like commission based pay has been working really well for some on you…Please explain how i go about finding the right percent to offer them. without going out of business.
3.What benifits do you offer part time employees if any?
4.Generally what are the costs in acquiring an employee from the start…just bought a van so i have to watch my dollars until season starts.
-----------BACK STORY SITUATION--------------------
Ok so here is were im at… I have been in business since June 2013. From June 2013 to march 2014 i did all storefront cleaning with the occasional referral for a residential.
March 2014 and i started advertising for my residential side of things. I was working alone for the first 2 months until that big $800 dollar job came along and i couldn’t do it all on my own in 1 day. SO me being short on time i asked my fiance for help and she turned out to be really good, she cared about the quality of work and the customer. I Payed her HOURLY and she only did residentials and only used her for the jobs $400-$1000 dollars or days where there were multiple jobs.
Fast forwards to August 2014, I sold my storefront route to another window cleaning company, it was holding be back. Went strictly into residential. Me and my fiance separated at the and of 2014…
Due to the fact i took on such big jobs since i had her help i acquired a higher end clientele. Most of my existing clients are a 2 man job now. I don’t have her help any more and i want to continue to GROW.
I need to hire my first Employee (with no prior relation) and i don’t know were to start.
