How Do You Know Your Hiring The Right Business For The Job?
If you are like me, then you want to high tale it out of there when you run across a crooked business.
And there are many out there. Imagine all those crooked mechanics, doctors, and lawyers.
They can end up costing you thousands of dollars and constant migraines headaches.
What are suppose to do to avoid running into a crooked business?
Sometime they look legitimate. They own a building, they have license on the wall. . .
So how do you get to know the truth behind the business?
It is simple now days. Because of the wonderful world wide web.
You can now go to many local business listing sites, and find out all you need to know about a potential business.
The first thing you should take into consideration is, “How many reviews does the business have?”
If they don’t have any reviews, then perhaps you should avoid that business as much as possible.
What are reviews?
Reviews are notes about that particular business that previous customers leave for your consideration.
Reviews are windows into the future of what you will have to deal with if you do business with that particular business.
If the review is negative, that means your relationship with that business will most likely be negative too.
If the reviews are positive, then that means that business might be a good candidate for you to hire.
What if the business you are thinking about hiring doesn’t have any reviews?
If the business doesn’t have any reviews this could be because they are a new business.
If they are in control of the their online listing, it could mean that they deleted their bad reviews.
What you must consider the most about poor listing reviews is how the business owner responds to poor reviews.
Does the business owner ignore poor reviews?
If so then, this business owner will most likely ignore you in the future if you have a problem with their service.
If the business owner makes an attempt to communicate with people that leave negative reviews, then this shows that the business owner is trying to work with the customer to resolve issues.
Not all reviews should be taken into consideration.
After all, you can not satisfy all the people all the time.
But, as long as the business owner makes an attempt to resolve issues, this is a good indication they will try to resolve your issue in the future if one should occur.
This leads us to the number one business to avoid.

Another consideration is hiring someone with the skill but they have an attitude.

For example, I hired a mechanic to work on my 1985 Corvette.
I could find anyone to work on the corvette because it’s a older vehicle.
I finally ran into a mechanic that said he was a corvette aficionado.
He told me with his own words, “I know everything there is to know about corvettes”.
Three weeks later, I stop at the shop to see why my corvette was still parked in the same spot I left it.
According to the mechanic, he was in the process of putting the steering wheel back together because he said, “The key got stuck”.
If you know about corvettes, you know the 1985 corvette must be in reverse before you can get the key out.
There was my corvette with the steering wheel all over the front seat in about a thousands parts.
This particular mechanic had a positive attitude, but he did not know what he was doing.
Don’t let someone fool you into doing work they know nothing about.
