  2. As a lifelong employer, here’s a few tips for would be job hunters/employees

    #1 complaint among all sectors of employers? Tardy employees.
    Show up on time (or early), ready to work.
    -Dress for the job.
    -Believe or not, not all people/businesses are impressed with your exposed tattoos- consider where you’ll get that next “gotta have” tattoo….
    -Be honest with your employer- Don’t fudge your time card, steal from the business, etc..
    Employers aren’t stupid and you’ll be out of a job shortly with no/poor references.
    -Don’t jump on your “smart phone” at every opportunity to check non-business tweets, etc….
    Good luck on your job search!!
