I always use him. I'm good enough to make up for his lack of skills.

 

And when his stats pick up he is really worth it.

I like to use the cheap people very early and get their skills up higher so that i have cheap but high quality people by the time i get to the final heist. 

 

I actually found it to be more fun, once one of the crappy guys i employed crashed his motorbike and Franklin swooped past and picked up his bag from the ground, its nice to see little differences like that when on subsequent play throughs.

In my playthrough, I used Feltz, he's not s**tty like Rickie and not expensive like Paige and does a pretty good job, especially when his skill levels are increased. 

 

When I replay the heists, I use Rickie just to make the heist 'harder'.

The worst thing  is, you don't really get an opportunity to use him and therefore improve him between the moment you unlock him and, I believe, the last heist. He's completely pointless, but I guess it's kind of cool that he gets in touch and tries to get work. 

 

Other than the bog standard heist team members, the only one I used was the driver woman, can't remember her name. She was good, and cheap. The rest were meh. I dropped Packie off at the Altruists after finding him. Can't stand that guy. 

Taliana you're speaking of. And why do you hate Packie?

 

I've explained this many times elsewhere, but I found him to be a boring, irritating one-note character. That's not a particular popular view around here, I know, but there we go. 

 

I would rather any of the other characters from IV had returned (even his dead junkie brother). 

 

When I first saw him holding up that guy outside the store I was like 'aw f*ck this sh*t'.

 

 

I used ricky on my second playthrough because he was the cheapest and I felt it went with the story since he called up Michael asking for work after getting laid off. when I first saw that random event I killed packie because I didn't know who he was until I read on a hip hop forum thread that he was packie from gta 4. I was watching playthroughs of gta 4 before I got my copy of gta V so I thought I could use an experienced heistman like him on my team. 

I agree with fuzz he was pretty much one note like most gta 4  friend hangout characters except little Jacob and brucie. every time it was either his coke habit or his dysfunctional family history.  I say little Jacob and brucie are not one note because they are usually upbeat happy go lucky and are not sad sacks. i'm glad I finished that game I swear if I had to listen to one more tale of woe I would've killed myself.

Oh yeah, I used him. He's cheap and he got better with each successful mission which saved me a boatload. As long as you're good at the game, picking a cheaper character is usually best because you the player can pick up the slack.

In my playthroughs I used him whenever it was possible, and made sure the approach of each heist would include him, apart the fact that he's the typical hollywood weirdo hacker and has a annoying voice, he eventually gets good and is very cheap, which means more money to the crew.
And something odd I noticed:

-Michael: Crew leader;
-Trevor: Gunman;
-Frankling: Wheelman;
-Lester: Hacker.

Would be cool the see a heist in a future story expansion(if that is ever going to happen) with these guys only, less money to split between the crew.
