Time for Floortalk!
Hey y'all. Thanks for joining us. Floortalk is a weekly opportunity to talk shop with hundreds of other great wood flooring pro's right here on Instagram. We are here to learn from each other!
Tonight's Topic is: How many crews do you run and how many people per crew? How many people per crew do you feel like is the most productive?(on an average size job, say 2500 sq ft) If running multiple crews, how do you communicate to your crews each day? Do you meet at the office/shop every morning? Do you have weekly or monthly meetings to talk about areas of improvement or to discuss upcoming jobs? Do you have a dedicated sand crew and dedicated install crew? Do you have a dedicated finish crew for coating, abrading etc? If you have say three to four guys, and you're coming up on the end of a job, would you split them up? If so, how? Would you send one guy to start sanding on the big machine? And keep the others at the current job. (Just trying to get an idea on crew coordination and crew to job optimization!
Tonight's Sub Topic: How do you hire new people? Where do you look? Family? Friends? Do you use an employment/temp agency? And I know I've asked this before but.....would you rather hire a somewhat experienced guy or hire a greenhorn?
We're here to learn from each other, help each other, support each other and most of all: KEEP THIS TRADE ALIVE!!!
