I know that I have loudly proclaimed the benifits of working solo, and after today am begining to remember most of them. But I have a question for you guys that do regularly hire employees and what you do when they screw **** up. Today the guy working for me just cost me most if not all the days total take. First he breaks a window with a stone flung from the trimmer. And then about an hour later he some how catches the 21" WB on a gate and messes it up. The part on the mower was $30, and I expect the window to be in excess of $300. The story he told me about the gate and the mower does not add up. I can't figure out how he did what he claims happened. But what ever. How do you guys handle some thing like this? Pay the whole thing your self? ask the employee to pay part? I am not ready to fire the guy yet. But if this continues............................ I didn't think in the last couple of days he wasn't listening very well to the things I was telling him about how I wanted stuff done. So I hope that this will wake him up a little. I am still trying to train him in. He is fast, but that is part of the problem, it is hard to slow him down and do it like I have told him to do. I do know he is frustrated that I am faster and do a much better job than he can right now. Thanks for your advice. I am a little stressed because the cash flow is still slow right now and this will hurt even more.
