    Hey guys, is there a place where i can download a job application that is tweaked for lawn service and landscaping? I want it to ask certain questions tailored for lawn service. If not, does anyone have anyhting I can use. im about to start interviewing, and all i can find is one general one at office supply for $20. Its only one page, and not even as thorough as most basic apps ive filled out for jobs. If anyone can help me by scanning one in or posting it here....it would be really appreciated! thanks in advance...

    Why don't you go "job hunting" pick up some different ones and go home and make your own from the examples. Then you will have exactly what you want.

    drsorg,
    Sorry if you don't like the question but I thought it would be better to use this site for ther reason it was built and not waste the time of other locs "job hunting". I bet you would like that. Interview someone and he stand up and says thanks, I just wanted your application. Thanks for the help.

    You interview people right as they pick up the app? How many times do people walk through a door and pick up an app then take off everyday? Our city government gives people an 8 pager with the job description to take with them to fill out and mail back. The school system I used to work with years ago was the same way. Look on a local gov't website and see if they have any online ones or look under HotJobs and when you get to the app take a mental note of stuff you like. He wasn't really trying to be a wise cracker he was simply pointing out the obvious.

    What when did I say I didn't like the question? I was just offering a suggestion. There are many places that you could go and pick up an application from, without doing an interview for. You don't turn them back in. LOL Yeah interview for a job, to look at an application. It doesn't have to be an lco application either. Mcdonalds, Walmart, they have applications too.

    drsorg,
    Sorry, I'm new to this site, another site I would get a** holes screwing with you all the time. I guess I was looking more for a apl. geared towards the green industry. I'll try not to be so quick to judge in the future. I have not had the problem here. Thanks for the help.
