Where Do You Go To Find Construction Jobs?


Hi Everyone,

I am an HR Manager for a flooring company in Maryland and I am trying to hire someone with flooring experience for an office role. What are some good sites that people use when job searching?

Thanks in advance.

Where you look depends on the level of experience you're looking for and financial opportunity regarding the position among it's peers in the industry...

For some, that's Craigslist, others, as Griz mentioned...

Pay 5-10 % MORE then the old employer with FULL time work in SAFE conditions...
You'll have the pick of the litter.

Maybe a company Van/ pickup?

Your Current workers are the best source....

Steal one or Make one with years of training?

"free" knees and hips? A for real retire at < 30 years pension plan...

Not many flooring guys still going after 50-55 years of age....

I'd have issues with my HR person looking for "How to DO THEIR JOB 101" on a InterNet forum, and not sharp enough to omit their alleged skill.....In the post for help finding help....

At a 50 person payroll business, You need to bring either cheaper by 2-3 % workers or more productive workers by an equal % to cover YOUR Pay costs to the owner/investor.....

A few bad hires and your company goes into the Red. Maybe a sue fest?

Good Luck....

Thanks for the reply.

The company has great benefits and all the sites and events we do normally are not working to fulfill the niche specific role. The difficulty in filling the role is finding the correct audience. Many people in flooring do not want to make the switch to an office role, however that background knowledge is something that is needed.

Workman's Comp claimants---- Bad knees and hips, over 10% will have a decade or two flooring Exp....

Former and Active Pain-Killer abusers.....

Call all the local flooring companies for a lists of former Employee that Quit FOR HEALTH reasons....

This is "Big Data" 101, Pick your Zip codes, sort for persons in the trade in 2000-2018, and AREN'T now flooring..... cut out the Dead and felons, contact the rest with an offer that can read and write, and work on a team.

Pay someone at the state's workforce D office to give you a list of former flooring workers that have left the trade, but not the area.....in the last ten years or so.

Finder fees 20.00-50.00$ per interviewee, 100.00$-1000.00 per hired head hunting fee? "sub it out"
