Example of an average or a “safe” ad that results in the typical applicant. I found this running a quick search online.
This one is better, but is still safe and looks for skill over character.
Here is the ad we used for attracting great people of quality character.
If you’re the painter we’re looking for. . .
You are described by your references as very neat and clean, friendly, enthusiastic, conscientious, holding yourself to high standards, as well as courteous, mature, and a relaxed team player.
You present yourself well as trustworthy and punctual with a great smile! You are eager to take this opportunity to learn and grow with a caring and fun team with high expectations.
You will be responsible for prepping and painting interior and exterior surfaces, without direct supervision, for a clientele expecting excellence with a smile!
ABSOLUTE MUST – You have your own personal truck, a drivers license, smart phone, e-mail.
( PLEASE DO NOT CALL ) If you call, you will disqualify yourself by not following instructions.
If this is YOU. . . be ready to tell and show me why, when you fill our this form by 5pm this Friday. In fact just do it NOW!!!
