I've been running a light commercial branch in North Carolina for about two years now. I've always looked for commercial technicians when openings came up. After reading the residential section I think finding good residential technicians who are tired of the attics and craw spaces may work out better for the type of work my company does.
My questions are what made you residential guys finally make the move to commercial? Are you a residential guy thinking about making a change? If so what is stopping you?
What really prompted this post is the ad I listed here and in several local papers looking for "Commercial" guys. I began to wonder if good residential guys would not answer the ad because of the wording. Do you think people would not respond because they are intimidated by the wording? When ever someone lists an ad they are looking for a good technician more than a "commercial" or "residential" guy.
I just wondered what you guys thoughts were on such a basic thing like the wording of an ad.
