My version:

Ideal candidate has experience working on farm equipment, people that come out of a united rental or from working on a farm are great fits. Don’t look for diesel mechanic . They want the person that can fix a tractor, that maybe was mechanic on their parents farm. Don’t touch engines, don’t work on diesel trucks. Lot of hydraulic work, crane repairs or inspections (said we wont find someone with that, they can train)

Try to keep people within 3 hours of where they live, as they hire more technicians and grow people get to be closer to home. M-F 1st shift, no Saturdays and Sundays. Dispatch out of their house ,got to be at customers by 7 usually. Pay from when they leave at the house to when they get home. Depends on the guy they can stay away for some nights, but most people are home 4 nights out of 5. If they work 11 hours and have a 3 hour drive, most likely that’s the situation when they stay over night. They cover that as the company. For first month they will ride in someone's vehicle, after that they will get a company truck. They want to bring them on perm after a month
