Employment with DCI Industries will be a challenging and rewarding path but it will not be for everyone.
Please read through this page if you fell that you would like to apply for a position with DCI Industries.
Performance based pay is a system where an employee is employed on a casual basis with no fixed hours set each day. Jobs will be scheduled for specific times during a work day but these jobs can often be moved to suite the work situations of each day to accommodate the working team. For most residential work, a team will be 2 people (a tradesperson and an apprentice or TA). It is the responsibility of the tradesperson or senior team member to arrange the day for the team.
Where performance based pay comes in. DCI Industries performance based pay system is based on payment for hours invoiced, not hours worked.
How does that work? If a job is quoted for 3 hours but you get the work done in 2 then you are paid at your set hourly rate for the 3 hours that are invoiced. If a job is quoted for 3 hours and at the 2 hour mark you know that the job will take an additional 2 hours on top of the quote to complete, then you need to get a variation approved by the customer for the additional work. With the variation we can invoice for the 5 hours so you get paid for 5 hours. If the work is done under a "do and charge" arrangement then you will be paid for every hour that you work. If you attend a job that has been quoted for 3 hours but you don't get enough work done in the three hours and it actually takes 4 hours then you will only be paid for the 3 hours that you were able to invoice for.
This system of performance based pay allows an employee to work as many or as few hours that they like. Your employment contract will state an average number of hours that you are expected to work each week. This figure can be negotiated if required.
Performance based pay is a direct reward for working hard but it is also a safeguard for our business from those people who wish to get a free ride. If each employee is not profitable then our business can not survive.
