Why We Use a Job Recruitment Agency

When I was younger and had a job as a retail manager, it was very easy to hire workers. Most of them were teens or young adults who just wanted to make some spending money or a young person needing to supplement their income. Like I said, it was easy because there were ten people wanting every job that came open. Now that I am the VP of a large firm, it has gotten a bit more difficult to find the right workers. I don’t even try on my own anymore now that we use an LA marketing recruiter to find the best applicants for executive positions that come open.

One doesn’t come open that often because once someone joins the company, they tend to stick around because it really is a great place to work. People do retire though or move away because of a spouse’s job situation, so now and again we do need to contact a job recruiter to help us fill the position. I learned that it is much better to let someone else vet the applicants, especially someone who has prior knowledge of a lot of the applicants.

We are known for a great work atmosphere, but that doesn’t mean we hire just anyone. We hire the best, and that is sometimes hard to find on our own because of our reputation. We don’t people who are wowed by what we offer. We are the ones who want to be wowed by what they can offer us. Every time we have used this job recruiter to fill an executive position, we have definitely been wowed. That is why I will never try to do something that they can obviously do much better, because they have sent quality people our way every single time. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!

Getting Rid of Bugs in Our West Island Home

We had bugs. The key that statement is the word “had.” I like a clean home. I like to see the stuff we do have put away in a proper place. My wife and I clean up after ourselves and each other. One thing we like is our home being clean and free of bugs and rodents. We did not have the rodents like we had in the apartment building in the city, but we certainly had the bugs. I did not even know how they were getting in. We had stinging, bitting and swarming bugs in Laval. That was before we called the exterminator. I tried to deal with the problem myself, but seeing a bunch of ants crawling around on our kitchen countertop going after a banana was enough for me.

I wanted the spiders and ants gone from the house. I wanted the exterminator to look into the attic space to tell me how the wasps were getting in too. There were only a few of them per year, but there was enough dead ones I would find on the floor up there to raise a concern. I did not want us or our dogs getting stung. The big brown spiders in the basement were also not something you wanted to see. I found one in the toilet one day trying to crawl out. All I could imagine was the spider reaching the seat and then crawling out and over it while I was using the toilet. That would not have been good.

The house just needed treated for bugs and then thoroughly checked in order to seal it up against the intruders. They can stay outside where they belong. I do not want bugs inside our house at West island. I turned it over to the professionals in order to have more peace of mind about the chemicals and their application. I certainly do not want it to be a hazard for us or our dogs.
