Hiring Workers From Peru


I recently returned from another great trip In Peru. As always I had such a great time exploring and checking out the scenic areas. On these trips I always enjoy speaking with the locals. We talk about a number of things. From politics, movies, religion, and just life in general. Usually once they find out that I’m from America, I get asked the same specific question. How do they find a job in the U.S.? For this answer I turned to a friend of mine named Joe who runs the best carpet cleaning company in Oahu. Joe’s company, Carpet Cleaners Hawaii, has been in business for many years and through out that time he has hired employees from all over the world. To me this qualified him as sort of an expert in the area. So I asked him some basic questions.

  • How did you start Hiring employees from foreign countries?
  • How do you do background checks on applicants?
  • How do you deal with taxes for these employees?
  • Do you prefer foreign employees over domestic employees?
  • Are there any benefits to hiring foreign employees?
  • Any tips you can give to businesses and applicants?

Here is Joe’s response to my questions.

So I got started hiring foreign employees basically by accident. One day I decided I would post a want ad online and I accidently posted it in the wrong GEO location. Before I realized my mistake, I started getting good responses so I just rolled with it. A couple weeks later I had a new employee from Europe.

As far as doing background checks, it works just like it would with anyone from here locally. You just have to do your due diligence first. I usually like to do a skype interview to at least get a feel of this person and how they act. If I get any weird vibes I just move on to the next in line.

So first of all just to be clear, I only hire legal workers. I definitely don’t want any trouble with the law and the IRS. To be honest I don’t hire foreign employees to save money. I pay their taxes like any other employee.

I wouldn’t say I prefer a foreign employee over a domestic employee. Or vise versa. It just seems that for the amount I can afford to pay, and for the type of work that I need to get done, I get a better response from foreign employees. Right now if I had to guess, I have close to a 50/50 split of foreign and local employees.

There definitely can be benefits to hiring foreign employees. As well as some drawbacks. To me, the main benefit is the quality of work I get. I think most foreign employees are honest hard working people. They are just trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. They are usually willing to take the jobs others won’t. Some drawbacks can be dealing with work visas and respecting their holidays.

I’d say for anyone wanting to hire workers from other countries, just go for it. Be smart about it and don’t do it to cheat the system. You should take your time and vet your potential employees. If you do it right you will be very happy with your choice.

Joe is always looking for more employees for his business. If you are interested in working for him or you have a question for him, you can find more info about him here.
