Why is it so hard to find employees when so many are jobless?


Is it my fault or something else? I've been trying to find employees for a part time position. The job averages $15 an hour and 20 hrs a week. Yet very few people respond back to the add. I have had two people quit the position in a month that were barely doing the job to begin with. I'm frustrated because it's not a hard job. Why is it so hard to get good employees when so many people need jobs?

    I guess I really didn't think of how hard it would be juggling 2 part time jobs. Thanks!

    Taking pictures of homes. Simple easy work. Much easier than finding someone to do it! Thanks for the answer, that's a good possibility.

    Funny you said that. My best employee is 63. He works for me and has a full time job. Always does great.

    The job requires 18 and older only. I've tried advertising to college age and have had only minimal luck. Thanks

    Blaming the situations on the fact that there are lazy people in the world is not a solution. I would be questioning why the OP has a hard time attracting the many good reliable workers that would jump through hoops for a job.

    Neither who quit did the job well. Didn't follow rules. The job is just driving to foreclosed properties and taking pictures of them. I post jobs to craigslist mostly. It's a foreclosed property inspector. No experience even required.
