    When you get down here, you might want to stop in to Farmer's Feed & Seed on Main St in Kernersville. They are a full line Toro, Hustler, and Stihl dealer who does a lot of business with landscapers and they might know companies who might need help. There's also two hospitals and universities here in Winston-Salem who are always in need of help. Send me a PM if you would like more pointers.

    Forsyth Medical Center and NC Baptist Hospital/WFU School of Medicine.

    I have connections at WFU/Baptist. Email me if you want to know how to find jobs at the med school or Baptist. Not sure if there are any groundskeeping positions open now.

    Couple of the larger LCO's here are only paying $8 an hour, $12 for expierenced crew leader. I payed my employee $7.50 per yard which averaged between $15-20 per hour but I couldn't offer benefits so he left.

    No problem, I'll get that info for you and email you. Not sure if you've thought about working for the city, maintaining rights of way, city parks, etc. I know it's probably not what you would really like to be doing but it is in this line of work and maybe something you can take while looking around for another job. I have a connection with the City of Winston-Salem that I can find out info for you if you would like.

    What kind of work are you looking for? We have a store in Colfax, NC (about 3 miles east of Kernersville) that sells OPE. We sell to commercial users and homeonwers. Are you looking for landscape work or sales or crew leader or what? Let me know if I can help.
