I am getting to the point that I am considering hiring a part-time worker to help me at the shop. My question is, where would be the best place to advertise such a position to insure that I get some quality applicants?

I appreciate any feedback you can offer.

I would check with your local job agency. Tell them you need a temp and what your requirements are. Let them weed through the prospects.

That is a great suggestion. I am trying to think ahead and hire someone by late summer early fall so he or she is fully functional before I am hit with the holiday rush.

If you're looking at a seasonal position look at staffing agencies and hire a temp employee. If you're looking a true part time employee then the job boards like careerbuilder and monster are a good start. My company employes 35,000 in the US alone and we are able to find qualified candidates all day through these sources.

Thank you. It would not be seasonal. I want to make sure they are fully functional before the holidays but the idea is for a "permanent" part-time worker. Maybe I will place an ad with Monster.

I am a bit leery of Craigslist for some reason. If I do use Craigslist I will first create another email address.

Just in case you didn't know, about 6 months ago craigslist started using forwarding system to relay all email communication. It is anonymous until you actually provide your real email address to the person you communicate with.

Other option I'd suggest is local csu campuses but it's summer and you won't get many responses.

Having several friends who are small business owners and having listened to them o the past several years I'd look for a female at least forty, has kids and may be divorced. The new generation are not dependable as a whole. They quit at the most minor incident. Older women that need to provide fo their kids will work hard because they need to provide for their kids. They don'tthink about getting welfare, they go and work to take care of their young uns. Sounds harsh but it is true. Older folks tend to be better too. Unless you are lucky, I'd stay away from these new college kids.
