The HO should be kicked in the nutz
victmor said:I would rate the employee a 7. He does ok work. I have to really be to be there working along side him to make sure things get done to my standards, but he shows up everyday ready to work. Trust me though, he is not even close to ready to even try to run his own show. At this point he definitely needs me more than I need him, but he is a good kid and I am willing to deal with his mistakes. The whole point of this thread was to show him the thread to further instill what I already told him, which was that it wasn't right and that others would probably fire him on the spot. Some of you helped reinforce that while others are making me think twice about showing the thread to him.:blink: I know I am probably over doing it here and I will try to relax now.
CA, You are on a roll lately! :thumbsup:Hey Employee, if you're still viewing this thread with your boss, understand that you can do exactly what he's doing and probably more, as exemplified by your ability to trouble shoot some plumbing problems.
Being a successful painting contractor is no harder then bathing and brushing your teeth, as bender suggested. A little BS'ng the customer and a little charm, and you're on your way! Besides, it appears you already have a knack for it.
Now's the time to give your boss a big hug for exposing you to these important life lessons. Also, tell him it WOULD be just fine and dandy if he took you out to lunch.
P.S. Don't forget to take the opportunity to ask for a raise.
Man that was fun!
