AND ok.....what do you do in this situation....our lead installer.....does AWSOME work. He can make a damn furnace look like a work of art and run just as good as it looks. Problem is the short day thing too. Sometimes comes in 9:30 or so, then leaves at 3 or 4:00. Not all the time but a lot. We don't want to lose him but how the hell do you get a guy to change his ways, he hasn't always been like this. I have to say that he does make sure everything is done before he calls it a day though, I appreciate that...It's just annoying to hear him ***** about small checks when he works so many short days. Any ideas?
I had 2 of that kind in the past 4 yrs. Because they were good at what they did and that kind of help is fewer and fewer I didn't stop that self appointed levity. Yes they *****ed about short checks too even when I reminded them they were the ones that clocked out or didn't come in. I'll tell you it won't get better cause they are calling to many of the shots at this point. Nothing but bad will finally come of it. Had a party when the both of them finally didn't work here anymore. One of the guys was my lead man for a lot of yrs. Who ever is suppose to be making policy better stand up to the plate. I called my lead man on the rug a few weeks ago for much of the same thing and it's been a whole lot better since.
