I would still fire him if he did not begin showing up ready to work
I run a narrow ship at our workshop, I do not make excuses and I don’t give many second chances. I hired a new kid to do a task in the shop while I was in the afternoon when the service servicemens are off, working on heating plus AC service calls. I wanted the guy to clean up the shop, keep things organized, answer phones, plus disinfect the trucks. It was a straight-forward job to be even-handed plus I could have hired nearly anyone off the street to perform the straight-forward works. Instead, I hired our nephew, but my sibling begged me to employ the kid after he got fired for stealing from the pizza shop. She promised that he did not steal anything plus Chad said it was a mistake. I wanted to hire someone that wasn’t related to me, but my sister wouldn’t let it go, and Chad started last Monday. He was late on the first afternoon, although I gave him a split because it was his first afternoon! He then backed up into 1 of the heating plus AC service trucks, but thankfully the dent was minor plus entirely repaired. He was late on Tuesday plus he did not even show up to task the next afternoon. Thursday, I took Chad into the office plus I warned him that I did not care if he was family. I would still fire him if he did not begin showing up ready to work. I wasn’t interested in hearing any more excuses from the kid. I gave him a chance and now he needs to prove that I wasn’t wrong.
