7.1 Personnel Plan

As you can see in the personnel table below, HPI is estimated to have seven employees at start-up: four managers, and three service clerks. Wages for service clerks were calculated by taking the weekly hours, dispersing equal amount of daily hours over a full week, multiplied by the number of days in each month, and multiplied again by hourly wage. The wage for the "Service Manager" was calculated in the manner described above, and subtracted by the average number of hours spent on gun repairs, which was an average of 20 per week, multiplied by the hourly wage. This expense is shown in the "Sales Forecast" table labeled as the "Direct Cost of Sales" for the repairs category.

Please note that the wages below are total dollars earned per month, without the appropriate taxes taken out. Taxes are estimated and labeled as an expense in the profit/loss table within this plan.
