    Employers that want to post job opening please read

    Nearly every ad I see here and elsewhere I find often to have lots of missing details! Hopefully this will help you understand what technicians want to see when searching these ads.

    Salary - Don't just state "top pay to a top guy" or some other nonsense. Type it out and state what you are offering!

    "We offer $20-$55 per hour"

    See? Nice and simple! Clear and everyone understands what top pay is!

    If medical insurance is a benefit state how much money you cover and how much (if any) the employee would have to pay.. If you truly believe you are offering a good plan, you should have no problem stating how much of that plan you cover and if dental is included.

    Do you replace broken employee tools that were used on your job? If yes, state so!

    Do you offer sick and vacation time? How many paid holiday? If yes, state how many days.

    Do you pay travel time each day in any form?

    What is the daily working hours?

    Do you offer pension? 401k with company match?

    On call pay? How much per week?


    That is just the tip of the iceberg at what should be included! It will save us and you all alot of time!!!

    So if your company is so great, prove it in the job posting!

    If a job is posted and one wants to know the answers to those questions; if one was motivated enough they would contact the party posting the job.
    So many times I've notified someone of a job opening and the first words out of their mouths is how much does it pay, my reply generally always is HTF am I supposed to know, ask them yourself.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Great jobs are never advertised. They don't have to be.

    Chew on that one.

    Okay that's enough time to chew.


    The reason is that most people know someone in the business who has what they consider to be a "great job."

    They've already had that person introduce them to their hiring manager, service manager, or owner of their company.... and they've already said something along the lines of, "if you ever need another man, I hope you'll give me a call because John here has said great things about your company"....and sure enough, whenever the boss needs somebody, they will often first ask their employees, "do you know know someone who's good that you can recommend?" and if it's a great company, people will recommend it.

    If it's a company that they work for that they don't like, or if it is no better than the company for whom their friends already work, they're not going to recommend it to any of their friends.
