    Hello
    I am wondering how soon you are looking to fill the position? I am looking to start a part time job around the first of March. The reason is I will be stepping down at Lowe’s from a service manager to a maintenance associate. The reasoning is to get a more stable schedule for my family, but I will need a part time job for extra money. I have horses of my own and can do the jobs that you are asking for. I’m located outside of Thorntown by 65.

    Hello! I just applied for your p/t stable assistant. After submitting my resume it didn’t tell me if it was successfully received or not. Can you let me know if you did in fact receive my resume?

    Many thanks!
    Jane
