One of my COOP's (college students that work for me) resigned to take up a full time job with benefits and today was his last day. Great guy hard worker. I need to quit giving my good people leads on full time jobs.:bang: :ranton: So I was given a full time employee who has been with the company for 15 years. It was either take this position or get laid off. I did not want him and the candidates that I recommended were not even considered. My manager and director did not want this guy either but we were not given a choice. So we had a meeting today to go over what we expected of him and the shift requirements as we are a 24/7 operation. He and I are on a speaker phone and my manager and director are in two different cities and are on the call. My director very carefully explained why he was in our group and that he would be expected to work any shift assigned to him and what his responsibilities would be. OMG the whining and complaints started immediately. It took every ounce of will power I had not to tell him the STFU. After the conference call was over he asked me if he would be working night shift and I told him he would be working them on and off as required. Oh ship the whining and complaining started again. He told me he had been with the company for 15 years and I had only been there 2 years so how come I am the boss. I just looked at him and said "because I have more years as a supervisor than you have years with the company and I was hired to supervise this site you weren't. I told him to go home and show up tomorrow morning. An hour later I get calls from both my manager and director. The little POS called both of them and complained. The little F'er lied about our conversation. The good news is my manager and director know about his issues and he is on a short leash. I am going to document everything to CMA and if he argues with me again I am going to write him up. :rantoff: Thanks for listening I just had to get that off my chest. I wanted so bad to just punch his lights out.
