    The wording seems like you'll consider them for a raise just for showing up on time. Nothing about job performance???

    Champagne taste on a beer budget.

    I just can't get past the $11.50 an hour. The add reads like, "We need a hard working self-motivator that shows initiative who also makes sound judgment calls on the job and off...but we want to pay you like a meth tweaking repeat fellon." I don't even know if I'd list a price.

    I recommend prefacing the whole thing with 'Entry Level' and 'for someone looking to get into the green (or landscaping) industry.'

    Move the ability to grow within the company to the top of the list of what you offer if you want to channel guys that'll stick around.

    My father in law was in construction his whole life, until he retired last year. When telling stories about employees, he would always would say, "You pay peanuts, you get monkeys."

    I'm putting that in my pocket and taking it on the road with me.
