Went And Did It Now


Have been so far behind in work decided it was time to get some help. An going through a temp agency for that way they can handle the W/C and taxes for now. Will end up costing me about 20 an hour through them for mainly a labor . So will see how that works out . Hopefully helps me get caught up some.

Re: Went And Did It Now


used to that quite a bit back in the day when i had a crew , but need one or 2 more guys for labor

it worked ok.

if it works out , you could eventually hire the guy directly, but of course then you have to deal with the taxes , or 10-99 him
also , if you have a big project, where all your guys have to be paid with full coverage, a lot of those companies are set up as employee leasing agencies , and can pay your guys for you , and do their taxes , and full cover them .
yea its about 25% or more over what you actually pay them, but in a pinch it works great

I used them in Dallas when I would get in a bind. The temp agency would hire anyone who could fog a mirror. Sometimes they worked well. Sometimes they would be gone by morning break.

Re: Went And Did It Now


It's the only way I would do it anymore. Too much red tape in this state.

Constant adjusting rates for what they do during the day, constant cost changes with tons of paperwork.

Get a decent guy to find your own guy and run them through the service. They deal with it all. Just pay the bill at the end of the week or month and keep on working.

If you have an office staff I could see it, but as a one man show, no way.

They give me a 4 hr guarantee, if they don't work out can call the agency and don't have to pay.

Good for you, though I've found new help doesn't get me ahead for about 6 months. More of an investment.

At this time just need someone to keep things pickup, and a helper . Stuff that really eats up a lot of my time.

Truth be told, a decent laborer is gonna cost you at least 20 no matter what.

Don't know yet, they have not sent anyone out. Must be having a hard time finding someone that wants to work.


Also brought my sister, who does accounting, on to help me be more organized. She is a great asset , should of done that years ago.

Children help us in time we do not have time. For my family, it has become too expensive. I found a way out: buying a car and for my wife the best women's ski goggles. Everything went much faster. Closer to the land, I think we will complete. URL

Re: Went And Did It Now


I've used a company called tradesmen international for temp help. Very hit and miss. Most guys weren't worth anything
Got a few that were. Cost was about $25/hr all in for "experienced" people.

Ending up hiring a couple. None lasted too long. One ended up being picked up on a warrant for some weirdo sex crimes.

Haven't used them since.
