    just curious as to how many people on here are owners rather then employees of a sign compnay?

    To me it sounds like there's alot more owners the employees.

    I'm an employee, my parents are the owners, I've been working here for about 3 1/2. Hopefully 1 day I will not be the employee but the employeer.

    oh yeah I tried to make a poll but didn't see the option anywhere..:rolleyes:

    I'm an employee. Mom (Bigdawg Design) is the owner. We're both on here. Isn't it great working for your parents ;-)

    I am an employee. I work with my boyfriend (we've known each other for years before we started working together), and we both work for his parents. Makes for some interesting days at work :tongue: !!

    Owner/Partner

    I co-own the shop with my boyfriend/partner of 10 years. He's been doing it longer so he's really still the boss!

    I chose other because the company I work for is not a sign company, it is a hospital that has a sign tech ( me )

    We own but that does not give us anything other than personal satisfaction and the ability to run for a family emergency.

    As employees, we could turn the key, go home and relax - not anymore - not for a very long time!

    I've been an employee too long, I would love having my own shop, rough road and all.

    New Sign Guy? That's different that a Hospital has it's own sign tech, very cool.

    Owner/Operator. I've become an official boss just a few months ago when i just had to hire a part time employee (25hrs). If things keep up he will be full time and then maybee another part timer. And so on .. and so on ...
