We have four different e-commerce sites. We currently have one full time developer yet need a dba as well as more programmers that know OSCommerce. We have not had much luck with remote employees. We need people to work in our offices, or at least come in three days per week so that we can brainstorm on new mods as well as other new websites that we will be launching. How do you attract quality personnel that will work exclusively for you? We have tried Craigs List but most of the applicants aren't even in this country. We have given them a try, but they are in a different time zone which means that we have to stay up til 2AM and then, we don't hear from them for 2 days et al. We have three different office locations for them to work, so it's not like we are working out of our garage or something. What has worked for you?

Here on WW you will find a Commercial Exchange forum for queries.
From a friend's online company I know that the hunt for good programmers is a permanent hassle. They offer internships and project work and try to "raise" people they later take on board. This does not fill all gaps, though. In addition, they advertise vacancies like any other business does.

As a programmer who has worked with OSCommerce my first thought is that I would never want to work for your company just because you use OSCommerce. Just a thought. OSCommerce is a very poorly written piece of software and most "good" developers will shy away from jobs that involve it.
