    Hi all,
    Just wondering where you find good help. We purchased an existing business last year and have many of the same crew guys on staff this year. A few did not come back and we seem to be going through new ones like crazy. I can't tell you how many claim years of experience and then say they can't handle the hard work. I'm not sure what they were expecting. We've had them through Facebook ads, Indeed, and SimpliHired. Is Craig's list a good alternative? What works for you?

    Not a reply to this, but are you looking for help? I had a 17 year old guy call me today looking to get more than the 20 hours a week he gets now. He now works for a fairly big company in Gloucester County. Or if anyone else close is looking Pm me, before his caller id number goes off my phone.

    I know that BrightView is looking for a few people. From what I hear, they have gone from a 7 day cycle to a 10-12 day cycle on some of their contract properties. They don't have the man power.....

    Already had a bad hiring experience this year, solo it is for now. Doesn’t limit me from work, but makes it tougher

    I’m Sharing this to educate others. Someone stopped short and unexpectedly today in front of me. I did everything possible to stop the truck and trailer. Foot to the firewall, tires squealing, you name it. I was going 35mph.I bumped someone Under 10mph: didn’t do any real damage, bumper scuff-but you know how insurance goes. I did everything possible to stop. It sucks royally, but It could of been worse. Learn from my accident. Again, I couldn’t do anything to avoid in the given circumstances.

    I called 911, was calm, got out of the way of traffic and had my info ready. Explained to the officer like I did here, it could of been way worse. Truck is commercial tagged and insured

    Just glad everyone is OK

    Life will go on
