While looking for a crew leader we have came across some interesting perspectives. Like asking for 40k salary, company phone and vehicle for personal use with out ever having any certifications, licensees or schooling of any kind. One wanted a office. I just responded your office is Ms. Jones backyard and your dash board. The good old "I have lot of experience". Well in our opinion experience is not 7 different employers of the last ten years. All but the last unable to be verified. Or "You do not need a licensee to fertilize and spray round up" Your right it is a certification. My personal favorite "Mowing grass is not a skilled labor" Then how are you going to run a crew of labors that are more "skilled" than you are? Really the applicants with a great worldly view is general labors. Must have a clean & Valid DL and your own reliable vehicle to use to and from the shop: -"My grandma can give me rides" -"I can get a DL with my 1st check" -"I'm in the process of clearing up a DUI " The list goes on. Dose anyone have some good advice on questions or qualification to ask Or maybe a better way to weed out the undesirables. I'm figuring out that getting the right employees is like getting the right costumers. The way you present things can make a big difference on the quality.
