Now Hiring!

Hey folks,

I may be too late on asking this, but here goes anyway.

How do you smaller company guys (1-3 employees with no office help), and anyone else with input about this, feel about hiring a secretary/sales person/ errand runner/etc for your companies?

The reason I say that it might already be too late is because I have already made the offer and gotten a positive reply from the prospective employee.

I really need someone to help take care of the administrative side of things. I need someone to help do billing, accounts payable, scheduling routes, homes, and some small commercial stuff, a post office runner, and most importantly a person to make phone calls to solicit new business.

Who has had experience with these things? What did you do? What did you f-up by doing this? Do’s, Don’ts, etc, etc, etc?
