  1. Have worked in staffing for about 18 years so hopefully I can offer some insight. You can definitely find someone from Craig's List. As previously mentioned, you will have to screen a lot of resumes but that process can go pretty quickly once you get started. When you initially screen the resume, look for basic typos. We also look quickly for things such as consistency with the font size/type and formatting. All of these items will tell you about the person's attention to detail and will eliminate a lot of candidate's pretty quickly. Once you get past the initial screen, you can start to look at the person's experience and how it relates to what you need the person to do. If you find someone who looks like they may be a viable candidate, a quick 5 minute phone will tell you a lot. You will know within about 5 seconds of a call whether or not you want to continue the call based on their communication skills. I would tell them a little about what you are looking for and then a couple of quick questions will let you know if you want to meet them in person. Ask them why they want a part-time job and why they are interested in your job. Both of these are simple questions but you would be surprised to hear how many people cannot put together a coherent answer. From my experience, the question about why they want a part-time job is very important. A lot of people who are looking for full-time work will apply for your job and unless they can answer with a good reason (student, has another part-time job, etc..), they will never be completely vested in your job and will bolt as soon as they find something full-time. One of the biggest pieces of advice I would offer is to go with your gut. If you have any doubts, move on. I have been burned almost every time I did not go with my gut instinct. In terms of pay, you will probably be looking at paying at least $15/hour I hope this helps a little bit. Feel free to reach out offline and I will be more than happy to answer any other questions. Long time lurker here and this was my first post.
