i recently brought in a new hire 2 weeks ago, what a nightmare.

slower then dog crap, always texting someone, everyday he has drama in his life as well as is late everyday and at the end of everyday its " hey could i get twenty bucks off you for fuel ".

my other guy gets back from his layoff with knee surgery and this guy don't know it yet but he is toast on friday or maybe even sooner if he pisses me off before then.

i think i will start to record these azzhats from now on.

the problem is they keep coming, it used to be one of those once in a while things and now it seems as if everyone is like that.

it is a shame because i have nothing but full blood americans working for me and i go out of my way to not hire illegals as well as just plain refuse to but most younger americans don't want to work and the ones who do are just like this video.

Some people just don't know how to 'get in there'. I think he was afraid of getting even a little dirty.

Depressing to watch, lol.


Make him watch a few how-to videos and maybe he'll have a better idea at what he should be doing. Set a standard for him to reach.

Had a guy klike that he started at 7 AM, we went to the first yard, finished it at 730, took the time to take back to the shop and tell him good buy. Then went back and finished the work he did not do and got on with the day.

If it isnt effort its attitude. I had to let go one of my best workers because he was always running his mouth. He always knew the best way to do everything. You couldnt tell this guy anything. The final straw was a argument about shoveling in front of a dumpster. He wanted me to plow it? wtf!
