Where are you finding employees right now?
I'm having a hack of a time training people and having them complete the orders correctly. Issues are always missing photos, missing work, doing the work in the wrong order, missing damages
I always have them watch about 7hrs of training videos and then they work in the field with other crews for about 30days then they start doing the work and taking the photos.
Always worked in the past for me but its getting harder and harder to find people with a clue.
Do you have your field crews update or only complete field work?
Any advise is welcome
I have 1 sub that can complete a PCR and does his own bids. Otherwise everything ends up going through me. I don't have any full time employees, just a lot of part timers. I can't find anyone who who gives a chit about the office side. After they see how the banks and service companies leave the properties decline, I find their attitudes quickly decline in direct proportion to the neighborhood and house condition.
I will say that these guys are good field employees though. They will read the work order, follow it to the "t", check the camera for blurry or missing pics before they leave, etc. This is partially because I'm always in the field and guys will randomly end up working with me during the week. When that happens, I always use the opportunity to refresh training. I also use a great motivational tool by making them go back on their own time to fix something they mess up. If they can't find the time or desire to do it correctly on my
dime, they will find it on theirs
My kid is getting close to being able to do PCR's and such but I still can't let him do the bidding, unless its off a price sheet like a gas cap, outlet cover, etc.
I can't even find someone full time who wants to work above the table. They either think they deserve $20/hour for hauling debris or say "I'm collecting unemployment so I need to be paid in cash". If the government wants unemployment to decrease, stop extending it so these people will get a job......but that's for a different thread.
