Disposition: The participants interested in joining the company should have high energy, love to work hard, be able to stay upbeat, happy, and energetic during long work days. They should be organized and willing to go the extra mile with a smile. Students should be able to get up early and work late. They need to be the kind of person who can follow instruction and are willing to think outside the box. Ideal applicants are early to work, return back to work on time after breaks, do not mind staying late to get the job done, and are willing to start early to prepare for the day. The student should be the kind of person who doesn’t need drugs or alcohol to relax. A person who is flexible with scheduling and able to adapt in a moment’s notice, happily. Be able to let things roll off their back if plans change. Overall, a happy, healthy, person with a good attitude, that is a team player.
Do not apply: In our past, we have experienced all kinds of situations, most of them very positive, but a few not so positive. We decided to put together a list of the not so positive attributes that really changed the energy of the group, and affected all of us. By no means is this list to scare you away from the program. We know there is a little of these attributes in all of us. Really, we just want to attract people with the positive dispositions mentioned above.
So please do not apply if you are not a morning person. If “low energy,” is part of your life. If you have any health issues or injuries that could keep you from doing hard manual labor. If you don’t consider yourself a positive, energetic, happy person, don’t apply. If you need to smoke pot or drink alcohol to relax after work or during the weekends, do not apply. Do not come to our program to quit a substance, or to change your habits. If you are having a life changing crisis, or going through a difficult time in life, do not apply. We are not trained counselors. Do not come to our program if you don’t like to be told what to do, or have trouble following orders. If you are not a team player, if you are not organized, if you are late consistently, if self worth is an issue, if you do not have funds saved up to get you buy during pauses in work. If changing plans drives you crazy, if you have a hard time being spontaneous, if you need things to go your way, and you get frustrated if it doesn’t, do not apply.
