    Looking into placing an ad for hiring a guy in the paper. What kind of phrasing or wording do you like to include to scare off illegals druggies and lazy guys. I'd like to find someone to run a trimmer but also responsible enough to run the route a few days if I need him too.

    Let the crsp shoot begin.

    well you could always say "drug test required" even if it's not. Getting good people is one of the hardest things, then if you get a good one, keeping them. I find some form of referral is always better than the crap shoot of the newspaper.

    Do not include your phone number. Make them email a resume. if they can't handle that simple task they are not worth considering. A properly composed, error free resume will tell you a lot about an individual.:usflag:
