    What are the sources on which a lower staff like peon, drivers and office boys rely on other than the monthly salary?

    We have vacancy for this peon and office boy in our company. Our company has advertised about this vacancy in the newspaper but itís of no news. We could not find enough candidate for this purpose. I have asked some of the unemployed candidates in our colony but they refuse to take up the job as its salary pay is very low to survive in our town. They ask me about any other source by which this post can income more money. What should I answer them about other sources?

    Frankly speaking, every one is just after money. Many people think that they will remain unemployed, still they wont take up the job of a peon or office boy because of 2 distinct reasons-
    1. Due to so called low status of the job
    2. Secondly due to low salary
    When someone asks you about other source by which such post can earn more money means directly that person is asking whether there is any other illegal source from which that person can earn more apart from his salary! This definitely reflects the cheap mentality of the person asking you such question, but the reality is that majority of our population is having same sort of mentality. You will find at many places peons taking bribe in order to shift an important file to the concerned person and many instances like this. Getting a good reliable person now a days is really a big deal. I will suggest you to avoid such person from giving a job.

    Hello Aspirant,

    See,each & every post are sanctioned with certain qualification & pay.It is common to all for a single cadre & post.The question you been asked has no legal answer.The employee working at some post gets some extra income according to nature & service tendered by the concerned employee.Some employee at lower post like peon/office boy gets some money extra who is given by some other client,senior employees when they get impressed with the behaviour of the concerned lower grade employee.But it is not right of the lower grade employee to get such money compulsorily by all the senior employees/clients/customers.

    So one employee should count the actual pay & allowances what she/he gets as per eligibility.

    You can register your resume to some consultant to get more nos. of candidates for the said post.

    Good luck.
