I too have been hired and done the hiring. You'll know the right person when you find them and can usually get a good feel of their work ethic after a short time.

Hiring the wrong person can be a costly mistake, but it doesn 't end there. Once you've recruited and selected your candidate, you still need a plan in place to measure their training, guidelines to manage their progress and programs to keep them motivated.

For server administration jobs, never hire a person online. It's high security risk, unless you have proper backup mechanisms and systems to remotely log each and every activity even a root user does.

Always a in house staff is worth every penny. You don't know how secure is their system, even if that person is trust worthy.

Even in house, we log every activity our admins do. Infact they are also aware of it and due to that reason, we get a honest approach from our staff and not to hide their mistakes, if any

You can take Online Sales staff, but as SS-Maddy mentored, it's very risky to hire some online person as Administrator on servers.

We hired a sales rep locally for another company we owned. The employee lived about 60 miles away from corporate hq. Since he was going to be an outside sales rep we said don't worry about coming in, just wok from home. He only made it 30 days because there was absolutely no sales or leads. We then looked through their e-mail account when we terminated them and there was only 11 e-mails sent in and out total. The worse thing was 10 out of 11 e-mails were to/from me.

From having experience, make sure to watch your new employees carefully. You never know what they are or not doing. Its your reputation that is on the line.

There are a lot of trusted and hard-working people online who are willing to work for outsourcing or some sorts. You can check out www(dot)oDesk(dot)com. The site monitors the transactions between the employer and the employee. It's just a matter of finding the right person for the job.

The following is some infomation by Daniel of HostLauncher.

This can be really sketchy sometimes. What if after handing over the passwords for your servers, some guy decides to delete everything from it for laughs?

It can happen and I'm sure it has happened before. There isn't really much you can do unless you get references and check them out.

What I also like to do is make the person scan me a copy of their drivers license so at least I know the person is who they say they are. Even then, it still doesn't solve the problem fully I once had an employee steal my entire mailing list so he could send out his hosting offers to my customers.

If it weren't for an honest customer who got the email, I would have never known about it and he would have continued to steal my clients away from me.

You have to be on the lookout for these things.

Best Regards,
