You should have the potential prospect wait in the parking lot...and you pull up in your 800hp Oldsmobile Sedan!


Kinda like a multi level marketing strategy

There is no job title. They will be learning a parts job that only 8 people in America kind of know how to do, while helping the wife and I with daily chores. The guy that moved on last month went from 17 an hour to 70K a year after 5 years.
Very few folks can absorb and retain the complex job I do daily. It's tough.

Donít take this the wrong way as I mean no disrespect. If the job is as complex as you say $17 is a little low for the caliber of person youíre looking for. Starting at $17/hr 5 years ago is the equivalent of roughly $20/hr with inflation.I realize you said the first 30 days, but itís just something to keep in mind. Good luck sir!

Tough crowd... My 0.02 is I would want the 30 day re-evaluation. Rock the job, and it will go up. I'd rather that than 20 locked in for a year plus etc. Good on you IMHO.

Yup. Getting harder every year. Manufacturers making them smaller and smaller. We used to use dental picks to take them apart. Now days we use tiny picks and a magnifing face shield.

It's all about weight.........

We build 5 or so a week of these.....

Not that I know of. They don't deal with any company that wants less than a million pieces a year. {Ford - GM - Chrysler - etc}

I saw the other day Snap On has a new extraction kit.

Offered an x ford parts guy the job yesterday. We will see Monday.................

Good luck Johnny. My entire career was in wire harness manufacturing. It was very lucrative in the 80s 90s and early 2000s. Glad to see someone still making money doing state side.

Been at it since 9-11-01. Brought in a lady outside sales person and started getting supplies together for her and planes started hitting buildings. Her and my wife were balling. Sent her home for the day.

We are very close to sending out 400 a month to every state in country......

Interesting.....that was about the time I got out of it. I sold my company and cashed THE check 9-6-2001. I left for good 5-22-2002. We were building 100,000s wire and cable assemblies every month. I had a place in Mexico and had just started up in China. I couldnt stomach what was happening in my part of the industry.

FWIW when we did low volume re-work jobs, we had to use the oem extraction tool if it was available & we normally got those through distribution.

I would think most hi volume terminals should have them, but then again automotive does some goofy overseas stuff.

Going semi public this morning. Wish me luck.

Need help. I sell around 400 automotive connectors to America every month.
I work 8:00 to 5:00 Monday to Friday. I am a mile away and work out of a 70 year old {temperature controlled} 500 square foot office full of old stuff with 2 LOL guard dogs.
Must have: good English, good license, good vehicle, great memory. The memory part is super important. If you have lost your car, car keys, or wallet this year do not apply.

Let me help you, so that people don't think they're applying with a crazy person running a circus....


20 year old Automotive Connector Company seeks entry level employee to be a part of our business expansion. Salary commensurate to experience. Qualified applicants should be English speaking, have a valid drivers license and capable transportation, as well as the acumen to perform the required tasks.



You're just gonna confuse applicants because: the fact that YOU'RE a mile away from work doesn't mean they are; the square footage of your office or the age of your office is irrelevant; applicants don't care about your old stuff or your dogs; or your age. It's a competitive market for quality employees. If you want to attract talent and keep it, you have to differentiate yourself. And for God's sake, don't ever show them that old business card with that dog on your lap.

Thank you, Curt.

I was wondering why any applicant would care where YOU work, Johnny. WHy would THEY care if YOUR office is temperature contolled or how old it is? Wouldn't they want to know the conditions of THEIR workplace?

I didnít ďsendĒ him. Have no idea who the guy is. A guy PMed me thinking I was the one looking for an employee. I simply pointed him in the right direction. It was his brother who was looking for the job. I donít know any of them. But I wish them all the luck in the world.
