Have you considered hiring someone a little older, I've had great success hiring the 55+ guys for warehouse and retail that have been downsized or found their retirement funds pillaged. They may not be able to hump it like a 20 something, but they show up and put in a good day once you weed through the ones with issues.
I'll keep that in mind-thanks. I have a guy who's in school at UGA helping me right now. However, he's only available on Friday's while school is in session and is open for the summer. What I really need is one good worker I can work year round. I may be a little slow the first winter but if someone will stick it out past that, they'll have a good opportunity. My goal is to have 2-3 full time workers working along with me in the field, so nobody is actually going to have to take the reins all together. Eventually, I want to offer insurance and benefits and create a great working environment. I just need someone who can recognize a good opportunity when they see one. I do agree with an earlier statement that, with the economy, you'd think there would be tons to choose from. I've learned that there are tons who just want a paycheck and to not really have to work. Funny, I never found that.
