    I may have a great oppertunity for you.

    I just got reffered for a crap ton of commercial work for next year. Enough for me to go from one 2 man crew to three 2-3 man crews. I am going to need someone to drive a truck/trailer and manage 1 other guy with you. I do not have alot of details YET but at this point your main tasks will be cut/trim/blow 5 days a week. If this is something your interested in please call me or PM me. my # is 888-588-2523.

    I will be hiring about 3-4 workers for the spring if things happen the way it looks like its going to happen!

    Also, I am based out of south barrington ATM and work is all over the place right now. IM in aurora. stcharles, elgin, palatine, crystal lake, lol. I will be dropping all my resi customers in the spring so my territory will be much smaller

    I need an experienced Plow driver to start NOW! Route tour will be this week. This will be an all year job NOT SEASONAL and established contracts in hand not a maybe.

    On the greens end looking for someone that can run a crew, pass General Standard for commercial turf applications (paid training and fees by me), all types of paver and segmented wall work (also paid training and testing by me), has an understanding of working with General contractor on construction site, understand grades, drainage, and the use of a lazer level and much more I am sure.

    Ha you like my beater truck?

    I havent put the money ionto letting it yet since im not sure how long ill keep it. I may actually attempt to "restore" it to a decent point so I can work it for as many years as I can get from it. I have another truck for the spring that is alot more professional looking.
