I worked several years in the industry internationally when I was younger. Average working day was 12 hours and if you are lucky, you got 1 day off every 2 weeks. Often there was no time to spend any money or there was nothing to buy in your location even you had all the money in the world. Basically you could save nearly all you earned.Anyway, it's my old man fantasy about taking a year out to teach diving on a lovely location with lovely people.
Hahahaha!!!!!!!Would expect them to provide it if they're specifying the latest tat in the shop. Or expect a commission on each one sold.
Would also largely depend upon your skillset; if you're a know-nothing freshly certified DiveMASTER or are a highly experienced dive instructor with great skills.
Just sometimes it would be great to rock up driving a truck with a mobile compressor at half the price of the shop.Hahahaha!!!!!!!
Not even close in my area.
Jeez one co owner complains about DMs getting free air when they assist classes. It is just totally out of whack.
Well, I am getting a used compressor (Bauer) set up in my garage. Got to have years of experience maintaining it before I open my dive center. I do want to have a booster for filling my CCR O2 bottle and be completely independent from shops.Just sometimes it would be great to rock up driving a truck with a mobile compressor at half the price of the shop.
I am neither an attorney nor an accountant, but I am pretty sure this is technically true, at least in the USA. Check this out: Are Discounts Taxable Income | Discount Programs | WageWorksI have heard a CD insist that a shop discount is a form of reimbursement. In other words, you need to spend more money in order to get "paid".
