It seems that everyone at labor is on pins & needles.
- We are all overworked & have been complaining for weeks that every one of us need to bring on additional staff.
Being short handed it difficult no matter the time of year, but, during the Spring, when everyone wants an appointment at the same time makes it absolutely hard; Our supplier is 1 of the most popular Heating & A/C dealerships in the section & every one of us have a superb reputation for service as well. If every one of us wanted to keep that, every one of us needed to take steps to bring on experienced suppliers that could hit the ground running, however the boss sited an add in local papers but he also used the marketplace on social media in hopes of attracting a larger pool of people. There was no cost involved in this type of advertising & it turned out that it was perfect. The add was seen our way more people than every one of us ever could have imagined & within a few afternoons, every one of us had many qualified applicants. We had stated that every one of us needed at least multiple years experience. We wanted someone with modern certifications & every one of us were willing to pay a sign on bonus to the right man. The boss found 2 up-to-date Heating & A/C suppliers that will be starting in the next 2 weeks. One has over more than nine years experience & was looking for a change from his old job anyway, the other just moved into the area! Sure, the ad attracted some less than desirable people, but, overall it as the best way to get the word out there that every one of us were looking to expand our workforce.
