Thread: You're Fired
12-14-2004, 07:39 AM #53
Been there, done that. You want to believe that the guy will come around. Part of it is you don't want to admit to yourself that you made a mistake in hiring the person. We have so much paperwork that has to be done to hire someone that I don't want to waste or repeat that time investment. The fact remains though that what you see out of a person the first 30 days is probably the best you can expect. This guy had no work ethic. Everything else was more important than this job. He was simply too busy to have a job. Firing someone no matter the circumstances is no fun. You start to think not only about that person but their families and/or children that rely on that paycheck. The fact remains though that you have a business to run, it's not a charity. I fired someone last month and another yesterday. Again, it's no fun but they had it coming.

We hired a good one.....put an ad out, he was the first to apply....I couldn't have been easier. He has no HVAC experience but used to work on appliances so he has a good idea about stuff. It has only been 9 days and he has impressed everyone....
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?

Are you allowed to say that? Didn't Trump want to get it copyrighted?
