    I had to run an ad for some more help and I must have had over 100 calls in 3 days. It got so bad and I was so sick of talking to nitwits that you can't even understand or sound like they just rolled out of bed at 2pm, I pulled the ad. How many applicants do some of you go through in order to find just one decent guy/girl.

    ad did not work at all for us. Networking with other contractors can help sometimes. Ask some of the folks in your area that you rub elbows with if they know of anyone.
