Keeping in mind my previous blog – Remedy for Bad References, I thought it might be a good idea to offer some guidance on how to find good employees.  There is a wealth of information on the Internet and with patience, you can use Google and Social Media Sites to locate work situations that you can fit in with well and be happy in.

Look at social media profiles for companies you think you might be interested in.  I recently met a Barista who worked at Starbucks and she told me that they offered flex hours and often promote their employees if they show promise and have leadership qualities.  This person, in fact, has been asked to help manage the new Starbucks location to open this year.  People love their coffee and are willing to pay premium prices for a ready smile and proficiency.  Of course, you also need to be the kind of person stays outwardly calm, cool and collected under pressure.  I call this “unflappable”.

Another good place for flex hours is TD Canada Trust and you will always have a good backup there if you need it.  How many times have I had to wait for a little because my Customer Service Representative had trouble opening my Safe Deposit Box and needed help with all the keys.  Sometimes, the ATM may have problems too and once again Customer Service Representatives have to close their stations and not keep people waiting at the machine.  After all, people use ATM’s to avoid the inconvenience of standing in line for money.

For more information, please contact me by telephone at 705-743-0058 or by e-mail at cvanecko@cogeco.ca. I’d love to help!
