Getting Product For Install

Get Your Product and Work Order Sheet

You will receive a work order.  If it is a contracted install for Empire Today or other retail centers you will see it on the work order.  

You wil go to the noted distribution center to pick up the materials for that job unless its marked - On Site.  In which case it was delivered prior to you getting the work order. 

Follow the steps for the job materials as outlined on this area because once it's assigned you are responsible for that material. 


STEP 1 - Call customer

Unless you with a job supervisor you should always call the customer to let them know you are on your way. If your running late for any reason you must do this and give them time you can be there. Dont make excuses it's just courtesy and you should always be on time.  Sometimes traffic is heavy and delays but do your best to call if your late. It makes a big difference.  

If you have any issues which delays you over 30 minutes from start time on your work order - call your supervisor immediately with reason so we can make sure all is good for you in safety and customer happy. 

No one likes waiting with no call it can create a big problem and lose you and the company money. 

Check All Materials ALWAYS

You work order should have a customer sign off sheet and a distributor sign off for materials. 

You need to count the boxes on all flooring, take the number of boxes times the box count ( sq. ft. per box on label)  and verify all materials for the work order total square feet are present.  If you have to make two trips - make sure the distributor signs off on number of boxes, moldings or any other materials or supplies you are to pick up and count each item and check it off.  

If you go to job site unload and are short - it's on you.  So in order to protect yourself and the company we make sure distributor signs off, you sign off and customer once delivered signs off. Each one should count the boxes and items with you before signing off. Once customer takes delivery they are responsible unless you take something or there is a damaged peice or accidental loss.  In  any case you must report any missing materials on job site immediately to the supervisor.  Someone at the sold discretion of the Supervisor wile pay for the missing items.  


Measure Room Before You Start

Every Time you start installing you must measure each room.  This is to esnure there was not an error on the total square feet by the estimator and thus you will be short. If you start before measuring the install area on a job you may be responsible if the job is short .  DOUBLE CHECK. 

At the end of the day - make sure you measure how much you installed in case something happens and another crew or someone on your team gets sick.  Your all paid by the square feet. So you must track how much you install as a team each day.  And mark it on your pay sheet for that job number and customer last name with the date.  Make sure if you have more than just one helper or apprentice on your team you mark their names as well. 

You are in charge of that job were counting on you to log your job details every day. Not doing so can result in suspension.  It's important.. 


Work Safe - Speed comes with no issues or accidents.

Trying to rush thru craftsmanship is only a sure sign to delay your progress. We are all human and when your using tools that can seriously injure or kill someone you must make sure saftey is your number one task.  If you know a helper is not ready to be on saws yet do not allow it until they have had proper training and saftey from Supervisor and yourself both. 

We do not want to have anyone hurt and if the job takes a little longer it's better than having someone get hurt or worse. 


Make sure your team members are wearing appropriate safety gear. 

Keep Areas Clean

When your installing always keep your area picked up of waste or other trash and dispose of it in trash bags.  There is always clean up if your team members are waiting for you to finish something so they can move on. Make sure you clean your equipment areas at the end of the day, and any access routes to and from your equipment to the install area.  Lay down paper over the installed areas to avoid it getting scratched - no one ever does it but unless you cover it, you can bet it will happen. 

Nothing worse than taking out half a floor to fix a big scratch someone caused and never said anything about.  Keep tools on concrete or sub floor areas, not on flooring. Work off the floor unless it's absoultely necessary in last few rows and you have no choice. The more clean, safe, and aware of your work areas - the easier it is to make great money and have a very good job result.
