So I will start this post explaining the situation I have found myself in. For the last year I was the only guy in our company's irrigation department. The company had about 32 customers that I had inherited, I had only had about 7 months of irrigation experience up until my hire. I was fortunate to have a good teacher, and throughout the past year made sure I was always reading and trying to learn the correct way of doing things, not the easiest way but the way that will hopefully produce a quality product. By the end of last year I had 4 installs under my belt and they all have been operating with little to no issues. I am proud of what I have learned, but still know I have infinite room for growth and continuing to grow in my field. So this brings us to present day the company is wanting to grow and expand the lighting irrigation department and I'm excited to be on the forefront of that, however that means new crew leaders will be needed as well as eventually more helpers. We just hired a guy who said he has about 13 years experience , we have worked this past week together on an install at a garden center install. I have been frustrated the whole week because I have felt that The new hire though he has 13 yrs experience is not willing to put in the extra work to do things right, or is always looking for the easier way to do something as apposed to the most quality. For example we are having to hand trench, instead of using a trenching shovel he was trying to use the T handle line trencher for the 1"pipe we were installing. He also insist on burying the pipe as we go along as opposed to opening the trenches laying the mainline and gluing in valves, then going zone to zone and after half burying and cleaning out the system. I just feel like whatever seems the easiest is what he is wanting to do, instead of digging out another 3ft to get the head in a better position he would rather just put it in. Again I only have about 2 yrs experience at this point babe have tried to pride myself on creating a quality product. I'm reaching out to you more experienced guys who also create quality work to get a sense of your workflow, and if maybe I'm just wrong in my perception. Thanks I know this was a bit drawn out but I appreciate any feedback.
