    Ask for experience, age, refrences, availability, and then explain the work to them. Also ask about working weekends, holidays...availability.

    ask for a resume first

    I know that a lot of the other LCO's will laugh and say, "Who the heck in this line of work would have a resume," but all of my current employees have been on with me now for over a year, and I hired them on first with a resume, then written interview questions, and finally the oral interview.
