  • Pay for Tow Truck NPC job

    • Open

    What is the suggestion: There was recently a change to the way the NPC tow truck job pays and it was a change for the better. I really enjoy this job so I am here yet again to try and improve it. In its current state the jobs you receive when you pick up a car vary in a weird pay scale I would like to see a couple changes made. 

    1. I have seen jobs that send you on a 5 mile round trip pay $140 to the company and $28 to the driver. Then you get a job that is a 1 mile round trip that will pay double. it would like to see it changed where the pay out is based on distance 

    2. With the changes to the way drivers are paid I completely understand that the pay per job had to be dropped as the job would have became a get rich quick job. however I do believe the pay was dropped a little to low and is now hurting the company itself. The pay scale on a 20 trip sample averages $185.7 per trip to the company and $47.65 to the driver per trip. Under the current pay plan it is very hard to keep money in the company account with out dropping salary  pay so much that people just don't want to do the job. 

    What are the advantages? (List each in new line)

    For the first suggestion the benefit is that drivers that get a longer travel distance on a job feel like the are getting rewarded for the extra distance.

    The second suggestion would help the company be profitable and keep drivers happy with out noticing a pay cut but the company could then afford to pay the wages they are entitled to without them having to live in the tow truck. Because while they can make money at it people are in the city for RP and if you can't take a break from you job to enjoy some good RP elsewhere in the city it can get boring 

    What are the disadvantages? (List each in new line)

    This will be a trial and error process on getting the pay where it need to be to benefit both company and driver need and to make sure it is balanced with the city economy.

    Do you have any resources (images, links, references) to support our staff in making said suggestion?

    How would you go about implementing this idea?

    1.Have the job pay based on distance traveled round trip

    2.What I would like to do is drop the percentage of pay per tow down maybe between 15%-18% and increase the pay per tow scale to an amount where  people can still average around the same per tow but the company can also profit and actually make money to hold in the account for paying  employee salaries.
