Thanks for the kind words!

Still trying to wrap my head around how the pay is structured. It sort of doesnt compute, but then again theres no added bonuses or much in the way of anything past whatever your hourly pay is in construction.

Because I work Sundays I'm currently on $30/hour for all hours (no OT pay except on holidays). The other hourly option is $26/hour I'm at that does pay overtime after 40 hours. I get 50 cent increases every 6 months until I'm at full scale which is currently $28. My supervisor never got back to me about what my pay per stop would be if I switched to that plan. Hours worked, vacation and holiday pay came out to roughly $91k with around $10k in bonuses. The quarterly bonus check I received in January was 10.89% of my earnings for that quarter, just under $3k, but the taxman took about 1/3rd of it.

I would stay on that pay plan you have currently, too.
