I started my cleaning referral agency and I have the hardest time hiring independent contractors to start with my company.
I post on Indeed and I get many applicants. I then text them to either fill out online application and other forms which did not go well as some try to fill it out and send incomplete application. I provide them clear direction on what to do with these online application. Some don't even respond to text.
I then tried texting these applicants to meet to discuss the position and fill out the forms in person. This is also not successfully as most cancel on me last minute or don't even respond.
Is anyone experienced this or experiencing this? It is so frustrating to deal with this unprofessional behavior. I can't start marketing to get clients because I am stuck with no staff. I have 2 staff ready but I need more.
I feel that if you want to work then why not show that you want the job.
I really need advise on what I should do to hire reliable independent contractors.
