Best way to find experienced window cleaners?

So I am still looking for a lead tech. I was wondering what job boards you use to find experienced employees. Right now I am using Craigslist free ads only, haven’t advertised in an area that costs yet and I am paying for zip recruiter. I have browsed around on indeed but haven’t paid for an ad.

What works for you guys?

You push for referrals in your day to day.
That goes for employees as well.

Talk to your guys/co-workers about “that guy he used to work with.”

  • who might be looking for some work.

Timing is the trick, hire early/hire often.

Hire as many people as you can.

The right person will present themselves.

I’ve been through 14 people this year. 1 gets it.

how disappointing

… Dang, doesn’t that wear you out and mess with your scheduling to boot?

One thing I am doing from now on is making sure that I always have entry level techs. Those are easy to pick up all day. Then when I have a lead that leaves or I have to let go, hopefully I have an entry level guy that I can bump up to lead. Or at least keep easier jobs going until I find a lead.

We use our state’s internet job board services ( It’s free, and our best potentials come from this source. Way, way better candidates than those from Craigslist. Good luck.


I have never once had luck with an experienced cleaner. I’ll take a new guy and train him right every time. The guys who have done it before have too many bad habits in my experience.
