Great Tire Deal

Just a thought. It has worked for me in the past to select someone that is currently a technician and shows the potential for leadership. That would mean grooming someone into exactly what you are looking for. Then replace them with a regular technician. You typically get someone that is a great fit because they already know how the shop functions, what is important, etc.

Incollision, I feel your pain, I am in Hamburg NY and have been looking for months with no luck. I am now using hirethewinners.com. Still have had limited luck, but have come up with more that I did, using the methods you are talking about. Good luck with your hunt.
