I started with a core group of family and family friends. I still try to hire from that pool of people. It has extended now to friends of family friends.
A word of caution when doing this, it can breed hard feelings when you have to fire someone. But, if you choose well up front, you usually don't have to fire anyone.
The biggest red flag for hiring someone, in my opinion, is the lack of a vehicle. If the guy your looking at hiring does not have his own reliable transportation...don't hire. Even if he has his Mom or brother or whatever to drop him off. Pass on hiring. My experience has been the guys that do not have their own vehicle are the ones that will stab you in the back. Steal from you, go back to houses you just did an initial secure on and steal stuff from the dwelling, ect.
Don't know exactly what the connection is between no car and thievery, but it has been a common denominator.
