Sounds like you are farming out your marketing to a company in the far east. I love seeing translations that make no sense.

I've trained in a union training program and I find that most union trained painters are the best. And I'm not saying there aren't any non-union painters that aren't any good there are good non-union painters. So I would look at the union even the job corps has union trades.

A reminder: not everyone lives in Wisconsin. "Work release" is a more widely-recognized term.

Ahhhh okay....I've come to a conclusion...you either love painting....we're born into it...or are really desperate/ needy or you just really love money..

That's what makes good employee painters....

May sound bad and I may be critiqued by others but these types of people work hard...pay attention and do as there told

Can't ask for much more...right ?

I would try Craiglist...


In your post say email your resume and phone number and I will get back too you...


Don't leave your phone number or business name until you found the right candidate.

I suppose so, but only when "always" means "since 2000".

I"m assuming that you don't want to be the lowest bidder for "always", right? These things have to change if you're going to be in it for the long haul.

I just know the results that you can get out of craigslist and it's not worth the $25.00

My town is still free but milwaukee you have to pay for....also the few times we have posted on the road we had to pay....little bit more worth it..

I usually put flyers up in sherwin williams....

And now that we have a nicer shop with some one here I will simply tell all those people who call...to go fill out an application at our office....

Even told my guys the new process and how it will help keep a stack on file and how everyone is replacable!!

Good plan! Fear is probably the best way to develop a functional, highly productive team, especially with ex-cons.

There is a government website here in Canada. Better than craigslist because the companies actually have to be legit.

For an opposing approach, take a look at Roamer's pictures of training sessions, refresher courses, team meetings, etc.

I didn't see a single stripper pole in any of the photos...lol.
