Why can’t you do it? Nobody here knows what you expect from your employees better than you would, right?

This is not a job description this is a job requirements. A job description is a one page documentation of what the person can expect to being doing while employed for you. It should be short (about 10-12 lines) and detailed. If your wanting requirements yours looks fine.

So modify yours a little more. Remember this person is hired so being neat maybe a company policy but it usually isnt in the job description. I will see if I can find an old one we used for you.

I’ll write one up for you. $100 cash up front. One edition only, no editing, no complaining :slight_smile:

I’ve been too busy buying up all the Tanqueray No. TEN I can find.

Awesome man Thanks a lot. Should I have him sign it saying he understands it?


Have them sign everything possible

I have an Employee Manual. I have them sign that they have received it, and I have them sign the manual itself. That way when I ask him to bring it into the office, I can use some guilt tactics about them knowing what their job is and what they have forgotten.

But to answer your question, Yes, have him sign it after reading it back to you.

I had the chart :

and the corresponding contracts:

in the business downloads area, however all employees are subject to the “terms and conditions”:

This is how we do it at 5 Star… Maybe it helps a little. I totally suggest you writing your own, so that it completely reflects what you want your business to be.

Hey man that’s awesome. I appreciate it. Man hiring someone is a lot of work. Making sure you have everything upfront so you don’t run into any problems down the road. This helps out a bunch.

Yeah… it’s an investment in many ways, but making sure you have payroll setup properly, worker’s comp, FICA, unemployment, etc is just as important if you want to be a legit business.

Don’t forget to let your insurance company know after you have hired someone, either.

Make sure you have your interview questions written properly, get everything you need for a background check at the interview (my fav site: and just plan ahead. It’s a bunch of small stuff, but you will not regret it when you have a guy earning you $25/hour… or more… (Kevin might have more to say about that :slight_smile: )
