I think it was Rob Hopp, forgive me if I am wrong who wrote ;hire slow, fire quick” If any advise given here that is probably the best. The other thing is if it doesn’t feel right it probably isn’t. No matter how hard we want it to be. Hiring a service advisor can be one of the most important things you can do, it will make or break you. I recently let one go after almost 3 months. I should of let him go after 3 days. I knew then and after several counseling sessions it did not get better I am still finding things that he cost me almost 2 months later. If I had to do it over it would of been the 3 days.
This is just something to think about.February 12, 2008 at 5:30 pm #9486
I said it here, but I sure didn’t say it first.
I was one of those that hit me between the eyes. The Mechanic that I should have fired two years prior, but didn’t fire til January of 07 is still costing us money.
Just got my Workers comp bill. Up by over $2000 due to his stomach surgury (happened while working, not due to being 80 lbs over weight).
Please explain why anyone would believe that the same type of government that runs FEMA, the IRS and the Department of Education, can run the nations health care system…February 13, 2008 at 6:23 am #9487
You know I had a interesting conversation with unemployment about someone I let go. They wanted to know the reason since he filed for unemployment. It seem here that they give it to anyone. This guy came in late, left early, took extra long lunch breaks ect. Since I don’t work full time I didn’t know about it until he was here a while, others were covering up for him. Needless to say I had a sit down and wrote it out. A week or so later it happen, he actually left during the day and came back late the next morning. I fired him on the spot. But It killed me when unemployment called. I told them exactly how I felt about being punished for expecting a employee to do the four letter word. WORK, show up on time ect. I wasn’t exactly nice about it, but I did apoligise for taking my frustration out , but also stated I didn’t want to pay for unemployment for someone who should be working, I couldn’t believe it they denied it. If I wouldn’t of said anything they would have paid. What ashame we are stuck with rules that should not apply to us. I know I am off the topic a little but if I would have fired him within 90 days I wouldn’t have this story to tell.February 16, 2008 at 11:16 pm #9488
