Feedback on where to post job ads, and where is a good source for potential new hires?

Hey All,

Not certain if this should be posted elsewhere. I am looking for some further ideas on where to post job ads besides Craigslist & Indeed that have been successful for you? Beyond that I'd imagine networking with roofing companies, or other seasonal contractors may be an option? All in all I do realize the work isn't overly desirable or consistent.

Any feedback, or information will be helpful. Thanks in advance! -Chris

Last time I wanted a carpenter I tried (same start date) Craigslist, zip recruiter and Facebook. I live in a rural area 1/2 hour from a small city. Most applicants came from zip. Best came from Craigslist. Most applicants weren’t worth the time.

IMO Craigslist/Facebook is cheaper to start with...

When looking for the right person you should include: Do Not apply if you oversleep, have to get rides later than your start time, experience flat tires weekly, or have to be on your cell all day / Ask to borrow money frequently etc. !! :nono:

Thank you for the feedback and info fellas. We all know how it goes as far as staffing right! 1 out of 20 or more may be a potential.

I appreciate the info however.
