Need some advice... I hired an employee last Monday and here's a little background info.. He is 26 and lives with his girlfiend with a baby on the way. He doesn't get along with her and is not sure the baby will be his. He doesn't have a license or car due to an unpaid traffic violation (which means I pick him every day - about 30 minutes out of my day). He has been arrested and did 18 months for beating the living daylight out of someone... on parole. He answered the ad I ran and said that he had 2 years experience. I can tell he has some experience but not the level I expected... However I saw potential and he has gradually improved over the course of 7 work days. He comes to work every day (because I pick him up) and works hard. Except for this past Saturday... I made it clear that I needed him this Saturday and he said no problem.. he needed all the hours he could get. Well I went to pick him up and he got in the truck slumped over looking like sh!t. I said "what's wrong?" He said he was out all night (no sleep) and he felt like sh!t. I said "can you make it?" He said he didn't think so because his friend gave him "E" and it messed him up bad. So I dropped him back off...... Sunday night he apologized and said he f'ed up. He said he would be ready to go Monday morning. So being a nice guy and figured everybody deserves a second chance.. I said okay, don't let it happen again. Besides that... I'm desperate for help. Yesterday and today it was business as usual. Okay.. here's where I need advice. I received another call in answer to my help wanted ad. The guy sounds like a great prospect.. experienced from a reputable company, transportation and well spoken. What would you do?
