Joseph L. Balkan Inc. has a rigorous pre-employment screening process. When hires are made we carefully place the new team member into a position that is a fit for their skill set.  With that said, we recently added Manny and Ken to our team. Since they always work together, they are affectionately known as the MannyKens. Team Balkan doesn’t usually hire dummies, but with proper support and when placed in the correct position their success is assured.

As is true for all Balkan employees: support, training, and proper gear is supplied to ensure a safe and professional execution of the job. As these were the only two positions available for dummies, other dummies need not apply.
