Questions about a business opportunity

May 12, 2010 - 8:54am -- mountaineer coo...

I have a business opportunity that I have a few questions that I hope people can help with.  This new business wants to hire me as a baker and use my personal formulas.  I have a feeling that they are going to compensate me too little, but I need more information.  


They are currently offering $9 an hour plus a 2-3% incentive pay (bonus) from each bakery sale with a "promise" of a partnership in future opportunities.  They are not offering any compensation for my personal formulas.  I have a few questions (our location is Morgantown, WV):

Help on Baker Salary!!

November 19, 2009 - 8:12pm -- FinancingBread

I'm opening a bakery and am trying to figure out what salary to pay my baker. At the start, I will be doing pastry but need someone to do the bread. This person will be responsible for 50-100 loaves a night, 6 nights a week. If production climbs above that, assistant bakers will be hired. I'm looking for someone, preferably with a culinary degree, and 2-5 years of experience. I need to start low but am very willing to increase the salary as we become profitable.
