    Posted by sutton32-aol-com on January 20, 2014 at 6:06 pm

    Hi everyone been awhile since I’ve chimed in on anything. 2014 has me contemplating change, I need to find some new technicians that want to work. Does anybody have any canned Job adds that have worked bring in quality candidates?

    But I wonder if you have good techs why they don’t want to work? Have asked them for input on what they need to be motivated to perform? A good shop meeting can reveal a lot

    I think i have tried almost everything . Would love to here about shops that can hire quality techs.

    Teaching a younger person with ability to learn is hard but seems to work.
    I would love to find a master tech who will work for $30 a hr . 
    PS: I just love wearing flip flops in the winter.

    When looking for employees I think what you offer as a shop to the potential employee is far more important than the ad itself. 

    What is it like to work at this place?
    One quick example…if I were a tech considering a shop (in the northern states) I would stop by this time of year and see what the temp is inside the shop. If it’s not in the 65-70 F range I’ve seen enough….next!
