Hire a General Laborer

 

General laborers provide support to and perform various tasks as assigned. They work in a variety of settings: construction sites, warehouses, factories, and other facilities. Many industries employ general laborers. The work involves manual duties like lifting and carrying materials, equipment, using tools, cleaning, and other tasks. General laborers commonly work outside and are therefore exposed to different weather conditions and elements. 

 

In hiring general laborers, it is important for hiring managers to conduct an initial intake with the hiring company. Because the responsibilities of general laborers depend on the type of industry and nature of the company, gaining clarity on the job expectations is essential. After the intake, creating a job description that is straightforward, simple, and easy to understand will start the recruitment process on the right note. 

 

In the job description, be sure to include specific responsibilities and requirements to attract your ideal candidates. If possible, it is best to include additional information on the company itself. What is the work schedule for general laborers? How many general laborers are employed by the company? Is there an opportunity for on the job training? To stand out, try to think outside of the box when creating a job description. 

 

Finally, post the job announcement on different platforms. Social media, hiring websites, company websites, and online communities are reliable avenues where eager candidates can see your job vacancy. Another reliable way to gain candidate leads is to ask for employee referrals. General laborers may already be within the network of employees. They just need to know there is a job vacancy. 

 

Responsibilities of a General Laborer

 

The daily responsibilities of general laborers may vary depending on the industry and task assignment from supervisors. Preparation of tools, cleaning up the work area, and carrying different materials within the worksite are typical responsibilities. In a construction site, general laborers fill holes, dig trenches, build scaffolding, or set up signposts, cones, and warning signs. Furthermore, general laborers assist other skilled craftsmen like welders and carpenters. They follow given instructions carefully and can even use power tools when needed. 

 

General laborers are responsible for reporting any unsafe condition or equipment malfunction to prevent injuries. They follow safety standards and precautions at all times and wear personal protective gear as necessary. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a General Laborer

 

A high school diploma or a GED may or may not be required. As general laborers commonly perform manual tasks and duties, candidates must have the physical endurance, stamina, and good hand-eye coordination to excel in this role. The ability to lift and carry heavy loads of up to 40 lbs. and stand for extended periods of time are likewise necessary on the job. 

Additionally, familiarity and working knowledge of power tools is very important. Lastly, general laborers must have good interpersonal, communication, and teamwork skills. The ability to follow written and verbal instructions are essential.
