Mandatory drug testing usually sifts out some of the wankers.

I've had to hire many times and one of the things I've found helpful is actually calling at least three references. It seems a lot of people don't think you will actually call the references and I've weeded out a lot of people this way. I also would call their last couple jobs and ask question about what type of employee they were.

Interesting thread. I was wondering if employers have good luck with Craigslist. As a writer-for-hire (advertising/PR/feature articles/editing) I've found Craigslist to be filled with employment ads that are bogus...list compilers, those looking for free writing for start-up publications and such. I've pretty much discounted it for my personal use. It's good that it's working for the employers, though, if not for the employee. Of course, I'm a freelancer, so maybe it's different for me.

I still will respond to an ad if it lists the employer's name and contact information, but no more blind ads--those all seem to be bogus...
