    Pros

    The freedom of working independently is a nice perk. Traveling from home to home adds quite a bit of variety to this job. Not being tied to a desk, not knowing exactly what's next in the daily routine can make the 9-5 go by quite quickly. Lower/middle management stands behind you, and offers as much support as they can.

    Cons

    There can be some very long days. You won't know if you'll being getting off at 430 or 800pm. Some customers hygiene habits could use improvement, and you'll have your hands in some of the worst of it. Scheduling time off is difficult at best, and if you use sick days without a two week advance notice, you will be written up and placed on "performance probation." Get any pre-employment promises written into your job offer. A smile and handshake at the interview doesn't count for much when it comes down to actually happening.

    Advice to Management

    Tenure will increase when the payscale does. Overall, it's a decent system, but you will attract and be able to keep a better quality technician when the pay is livable. I'm not suggesting doubling the rate, but $32K isn't appropriate unless you're merely a helper or brand new trainee. I don't want to HAVE to work 15 hours of overtime each week to pay the bills. The profit margin would still be there, and probably increase due to employee job satisfaction.
