    Default WEF Grooms

    I feel like it is maybe a bit too late in the season to be looking, but are there any good places, other than yardandgroom and wellington-wef, to look for groom jobs in Florida for this spring? I searched for threads here and found one that led me to yardandgroom but I was only able to find one job listing. Any ideas?

    down the road from bar.ka


    Most of the positions are filled via word of mouth and personal contact and recommendation. Few want to hire an unknown for this with no trial/training period.

    Ask your trainer for names and start calling around.

    There are some barns that always need somebody and you can just go down and start walking the barn area but...they always need people because nobody stays very long.

    Might get lucky but if they don't know you are looking and your background? They won't call you.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.
