Finding Help

Anyone care to share how they find new employees, as in thru what venues?
Haven't tried the hiring sites on the web or local workforce, trying to avoid paying a company so we can then pay someone else to actually work! Looks like that might not be avoidable however.
The newspaper is a dinosaur as far as Help Wanted ads and Craigslist is useless around here. We have a hard time getting calls for our ads (grunt level thru field supervisor), let alone actually finding someone that could eventually be trusted to do a route without immediate supervision...

I have luck posting at either grocery store bulletin boards, or the local state employment agency offices, like MichiganWorks here in MI. Usually the people who look at those places are serious about working. If it is someone that I will need Workers Comp for, I use an agency since they cover the WC and I don't have to carry a WC policy here as a Single Member LLC.

Local career centers, LinkedIn, Indeed.com ( I have A LOT of luck with this one), and believe it or not local Facebook groups like for example I live in Highlands CO. so I type in Highlands County Jobs and a bunch of groups popped up. This helps keep things local, you can set up interviews and find some awesome help that way. We found some of our best experienced in house crew members off Indeed.com and Facebook.

How about CraigsList? That's another place to fish. You may get a good diamond in the rough.
