How do you pay your employees?

Hi Folks,
I launched a residential cleaning company the beginning of this year, things have been going pretty good so far, but I figured I'd ask around. How do you pay your employees?

A certain amount per job?

Hourly? And if so, when does your clock start? Do you pay gas expenses or mileage in between jobs?

As for now, our employees are paid 10.00 per hour from start time at the first property, until finish at last property, and I'm paying them the cost of fuel for all jobs "in between". I do not pay them their fuel "to" the first job or "home" from the first job. They also keep any tips they receive and get bonuses for referral jobs they land us.

How is everyone else doing it??

Thanks in advance,

We pay ours on a split per job. They're sub-contractors, so they need to pay all of the expenses, but can deduct on the their taxes.

Maid Services.
