    How and where do you find them ??

    I have had a bad string of employees as of late.





    stupid ( twice running into pallets of fert breaking open bags and denighing it was him when he was the only one in there. Liar and dumb )

    lets see...that is about the list. I have been doing this for 36 years. Never had too many problems finding good help. But in the last two years wow what a bunch.

    So my question is this. Where and how do you find reliable help.

    I am really to ready to let all of them go and start fresh.

    Maybe try the local VFW. They might be able to put you in touch with a vet that just came home and isn't employed anywhere. I think a guy just getting out of the military would be great. They're used to working hard, used to crap hours, can follow instructions, responsible and you could feel good about putting a vet to work and giving him a "leg up" when he needs one the most. Just a thought.

    Agreed with hooking up with a vet. I have been fortunate to have friends that need jobs and it has worked for the most part. But I definitely would consider someone just coming out of the army as they usually are the ones with honesty and respect our work can seem like nothing to them

    They're not ALL useless, but very few are worth what they cost.
