    For all you guys out there that have several to tons of employees. I was wondering where you find them? Im looking for a Full Time, Experienced (in both snow, lawn care, and landscaping), and long term. Im willing to pay good money, I just cant find that one extra person to stay around. I already have myself and 2 other employees, both going o 4 years now, but I just need one more. Where is the best place to find one/look for one? Im in the O'hare / Chicago Area anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Every one of my employees have been friends/referrals of existing employees.

    You can post ads in the paper, employment offices, local community colleges, etc. Don't be afraid to hire females either, some tend to be the best help you can find.

    I don't know about your area, but my tallent pool is real shallow. Hire on attitude, not alleged skill. You can teach the trade.
