I'm at my tethers end,I try my damned hardest to create a good working atmosphere.I supply my staff with good wages,flexible [ish] working hours,new top quality equipment,safety clothing,I even shout lunch now and again.. Now i'm only a small firm with 1 full time staff member and 2 subcontractors.My subcontractors are relatively good workers,but even they have ''the attitude'' from time to time,my real probs are with my full time employee,now this guy has been with me for a year or so [he was a friend that needed some work]he started off ok but soon developed a kind of '''sacastic,unhelpfull,your putting me out by coming to work attitude''' All of my previous employees have developed this type of attitude,and to be frank its really peeing me off!! I'm so fed up i'm constantly thinking about getting work that involves ''no'' employees whatsoever!!!!!!!!!! It seems to me the only time these guys are happy is when its pay day! Am I going wrong somewhere or is this the way most employees are??
