That good landscaper that sent me 35k in work the last 4 months asked one of my techs if he wanted a job! ( he just called just now to give me another 200 dollar repair, and he sounded congenial as ever!) Anyway, the job paid 600 more per month and included truck/phone to take home. Now, this guy is a cocky individual, remember he sold his last company to Tru Green, so he has it on the ball. One of two things happened: 1- He was acting cocky and just bragging, being arrogant and didn't really mean it. 2- Maybe testing the integrity of my employee, or messing with him? Either way, I don't like it too much, problem is he told my tech not to tell me and of course he did tell me right away. If I confront this guy will it make me look good because I stick up for myself or will it make me look bad and make the tension grow between him and my employee, both resulting in lost work? Help! My gut tells me to take the guy to lunch when I'm in town and tell him how I feel. He is taken care of very well by me...of course...but maybe he wants to make the extra 150k per year????
