The Successful Contractor Podcast – NEW EPISODE
This episode is a discussion with Gus Antos, owner of Milestone in the DFW market, as well as a part-owner of CertainPath. For those of you who may not know Gus, his story is incredible. He and his business partner/father-in-law joined CertainPath almost 20 years ago. They had a couple of trucks, and they were about bankrupt. Fast forward to today… Milestone is one of the largest home services companies in the country. Gus projects they will do $150 million in 2022, and he projects Milestone will hit $1.2 BILLION in 15 years—all within the DFW market.
This is part one of a two-part interview. In this first half, Gus digs deep into sharing how Milestone is finding so many talented people, and he explains how he monitors and controls labor to ensure profitability, while also keeping a vibrant culture. Lots of insights are included in this show. For example: Gus talks about the #1 mistake his team and he have made in recruiting; he reveals KPIs on monitoring new hire success; Gus divulges what he budgets for recruiting; he gives his two biggest personality traits Milestone looks for when interviewing; Gus discloses Milestone’s latest change in driving down callbacks; and he shares so much more.
