I dont know how you guys with multiple crews do it. I have hired and fired 2 guys in the past two weeks. OMG! I hired a guy who I thought was the "golden child" til' he went a-wall for 2 weeks. He said he was in the hospital with phnemonia, bronkitis, and an inner ear infection all at the same time. I give him another chance and he is 30 minutes late day one. Second day he is 20 minutes late, third day he was on time, forth day he is missing again. At this point I'm ready to fire him the next time I see or talk to him. He calls and said one of his dogs pushed him into a glass table and broke it and he had to get stitches, ok I give him one last chance after a long talk. The next day the idiot is late again. By the way, this is an "Army Ranger" and "Sniper Officer". So I'm definetley firing him after a big job I had today but you guessed it, he's a no show. He text me up 3 hours later and said he had a hell of a night and "where do you need me" I said dont worry about it you've been replaced. He actually acted surprised I fired him. He called me over 8 times, of course I ignored the calls but what an ass! The other guy is basically cut from the same cloth. He gets enough beer money then poof their gone. The thing that I HATE THE MOST IS "I need money, my car payment is due" "My morgage is due" THEN WORK YOU FRIGGIN' IDIOT! Sorry for the rant but holy sh!t the work force is a scarry place, and these are the decent ones on paper.
