  • Found a great catch this week & a word of thanks!

    Dirty Hands asked me to report on my success with my latest plumber talent search. I am thrilled to report that I found a great catch! 5 years new construction & five years service plumbing, super knowledgeable and a great communicator. Today was his first day and sometimes you just know when you found a real asset!

    This is the break I have been looking for and with talent like that it won't take long to start building a strong base!

    Thanks for all of your advice and support. I could not have gotten this far without this forum!

    How did you find him? Newspaper?, headhunter?, internet?, networking?

      This is good news and it sounds like you have the makings of a excellent employee. Just don't forget that that talent can take him elsewhere if he doesn't feel like he is getting a fair shake, so treat him (and compensate him) right.

          I used Craig's List, which is absolutely amazing, because it doesn't cost a dime in my area!

          I think I spent something like $5,000 last year on P-HVAC newspaper/online ads

          Talk about feeling ripped off!

            You know, the goof balls were no worse than any other format that I have tried... probably better, and now that I think of it.... I didn't get a bazillion inquiries from guys just out of prison!

            I actually had three real contenders, but my pick came from my toughest competitor, who gave 90 day notice to their employees a couple months ago that they are shutting down operations!
            Lucky break for me, but I do feel for their employees.
