Maybe try to hire away your competitors' employees. If you're paying 10 to 20 an hour more, that will be a no brainer. As long as the other benefits match up, the business is stable, & it's not a toxic work environment.My family and I own a service business where a crew of 2 will go out and install glass products, etc
sure, not the most glamorous job in the world but are now offering 30.00 40.00/hour plus a little overtime with experience and 20-25/hour without experience
Our competition is paying the same people with experience 14-20.00/hour
we have ads on Facebook, monster, zip, Craigslist, indeed, etc and a Help wanted sign on a very busy street
we have had 5 applications sent in over a month period
it’s crazy that nobody wants to work and the ones with experience don’t want to jump to a much higher paying job with better benefits.
I have never seen anything like this before in our business. We are having to turn away tons of work because we don’t have enough installers to install the products we sell
it’s just crazy. I know a couple of HVAC business owners who are experiencing the exact same thing
A friend let me know about a good job that would have paid more. Everyone should always keep an eye out.. Once I compared what it would cost to commute & to park, & retirement benefits, I decided to stay where I am. Short commute, two nice promotions later, & a better retirement plan have made me happy I stayed.
