A good friend of ours owns a communications/networking installation/computer support business in Dallas. For skilled computer repair people he pays $ 30/hour, it is all contracted work at businesses and corporations and is completely full time. They offer several company benefits such as bonuses, healthcare plan, etc.
We know another person who owns a franchise similar to Geek Squad, he chrages a “trip charge” then bills at $ 60/hour. He pays the employee at $ 35/hour, the extra $ 25 covers employment/advertising costs, the trip charge is basically where his profit sits. Most “house calls” generally tip as well, adding to the pay. His calls are primarily home computer uses rather than businesses. He charges and pays more for after hours/weekend work. While he pays more for his techs, they do not necessarily get 40 hours per week, his techs are only “on the clock” if they are working, and the calls can sometimes be spotty. Some weeks get more than 40 hours, some weeks they get less. They do not have many benefits.
