I've hired a couple of people over the last couple of months. I'm looking for someone reliable and trustworthy. Because of that I've been looking to hire someone I knew personally or was a personal offline recommendation. Both of the guys I've hired have not worked out as I had hoped. Both of them had prior commitments and/or didn't like the work. Any tips on effectively hiring someone so I don't spend a day training someone who leaves a week later? I started them both off with easy writing tasks to see how they managed their time and to gauge their abilities. These are sub-contractors, working remotely from home. I guess the next step is CL? Thanks!
