A well-crafted recommendation letter is often the deciding factor when it comes to hiring decisions. This is especially true when there are equally-qualified candidates seeking the same position. A recommendation letter is formal in nature, with examples as direct as possible. Supporting documentation, while not necessary, can be referenced and attached when appropriate. This general labor recommendation letter is written from the perspective of a current employee who is recommending a friend for an available position.

I am writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of my friend, George Atkins. I have worked with him in previous positions with similar requirements, so I can attest to his willingness to work hard. Since you are currently adding more general laborers to the warehouse staff at Horizon Industries, I ask that you please consider George.
While working with George in similar positions, he displayed a solid work ethic. He would always be willing to perform any task that was assigned to him each day, from moving boxes to the loading dock to unloading trucks with arriving deliveries. On multiple occasions, he took time to train and assist new additions to the staff.
If you hire George for this general laborer position, I am certain that he would perform his work as efficiently as he has done in the past when we worked together. He is honest, hardworking and committed to maintaining quality standards. Thank you for your time.
