In the past when I have run ads in the local Sunday paper for lawn help I found that half of those who responded seemed to be dead beats who only crawled out of bed to make the call. It became a waste of time trying to sort through them all to find the few worth my time to interview. So this year I decided to leave specific instructions in my employment ad. I said to request an application for employment you must leave your name, number and address and we will send one. Out of 30 calls in 2 days, only 8 left their address. Ether the others are living in their cars somewhere or they can't follow simple directions. I won't even contact those who can't follow simple instructions when they are printed in front of them. These type of people I don't want. It helps weed through some of the careless ones. What do some of you do to eliminate some of the worthless ones right off the top?
