Now Hiring! Anyone looking for a job?

Anyone have any suggestions as to where to find decent employees. Craigslist isn't doing much these days.

I am hiring 2 guys, must be able to drive and have some common sense, I can train the rest. Spread the word if anyone knows anybody looking for work..

Your asking too much, those guys go in business for themselves. lol

Finding good help is defiantly a never ending process in our industry.

Exactly sprinkler. You will not find a good common sense filled worker right off the streets that can drive a trailer and run a mower. Your going to have to train 99% of people to work up to your expectations.

I wasn't expecting to not have to train.. the "must be able to drive" indicates the legal and physical ability to drive a vehicle.. such as have a license, not be blind, etc. common sense isn't something you can train. but you can train someone with some common sense

Good luck the last 8 years 17 employees come and gone here just to keep 1 or 2. Now started paying $15 hour has helped retain.

Man all the good guys with experience already got jobs for the rest of the summer. Look for employees winter time when they get laid off for the slow season. Good luck
