It was just the way you told it...it comes across funny but I know it's not really. It's shocking to say the least.

I bet I'm not the only one who thinks its "funny".

Difficult to say who is wasting whose time.
"Shed"erectors?
Surely most ppl.would look on a shed as a 4ft by 6ft lightweight,backyard,B&Q type thing that a child could erect.
Beyond that a genuine company would be expected to specify, eg, Timber buildings,Steel framed buildings or whatever in order to attract the right personel and avoid time-wasters....

Agree, a few words in the add like "Previous experience essential" might have saved him a lot of grief!

Shed Erecting, hardly highly skilled is it?

So someone without experience could quickly learn, I presume.

Would experience be so imortant, sometimes it is better to employ someone with an aptitude for "DIY" and train them yourself, in the working ways of the company, and team working and so on.

Not all jobs require experience as on the job training is sometimes worth more, and achieves better results for the company.

I have heard a suicide bomber without experience would be preferable to one with.
