Hey guys, I started working for an inspection company that has 484 5 Star google reviews for 5 months now. We (5 inspectors and 3 office staff) go above and beyond for our customers and are very thorough with our inspections. Prior to working here, I worked handyman jobs under a licensed contractor. I currently started doing my own inspections with the company two weeks ago and my boss asked me how much does I think he should pay me (my training wage is $700 a week and after taxes, its $601 for only 40 hours). I do about 10 inspections a week.
I am starting to feel overworked and underpaid. Just looking for thoughts on how do I assess my value and worth to the company.
I can do property inspections in spanish and english, can do sewer scope inspections, well and septic inspection, air quality testing, radon tests, water tests, residential inspections, assist in commercial inspections, sea wall inspections and so on. They have trained me very well and the quality of the reports are the same as my other colleagues (otherwise, I would not be allowed to be on my own). I have done a total of 180 inspections in the last 5 months.
Nevertheless, I am still getting paid a training wage until he can figure out what he can offer me. I need to figure out how much I am worth, having the competency and knowledge but not the years of experience as others.
