I am a fourth generation family member in my families commercial food equipment service company in Illinois and finding technicians is one of the most challenging things we deal with. Being such a specific industry it is hard to find guys who have experience on the "hot side" of commercial food equipment let alone finding someone who can do both the hot and cold sides. I am just wondering where you look when you are searching for a job sites like this? newspaper? monster or other job sites? craigslist? others? Itís just hard sometimes to make the investment in some of these because they are getting so darn expensive and you donít know what you will get. We are a company that is looking to grow in the service side but I donít want to throw a ton of money at job advertising if its a place technicians are not looking?
Also what benefits would you say are the most attractive to technicians in this industry? Always got to deal with the fact that a benefit isnít a benefit unless its perceived as one.
