I think the best seniors are the ones that actually care about their staff cuz it makes the staff a lot more motivated and willing to do what you ask when you treat them well and when they know that you're not making them work just because you want to

Really SIA1 and EY 1?.. smh.. haters. Anywho.. To OP.. it is part of the job. I am sure they know you hate asking them. It makes you a good senior. Get them coffee, soda and candy and they will be good. If you atay along with them working, they will see you are willing to put in the same hours they do and it should easy the sting.

I'm confused how are u a good senior if you're asking your staff to work the weekend? Lmao

Caring is what makes you a good senior. Asking your staff to work isn't not caring about them. Not taking the time to help them grow is not caring. You've gotta expect people to work. You can't expect to not support them in it.

Thank you to those of you who provided thoughtful responses.. feeling a little better about it now ☺️

The only time I get annoyed at my Senior for asking me to work late/over the weekend is when they turn around and leave early and spend the weekend off, come back on Monday, and get annoyed that something isn't done perfectly when they weren't around to ask any questions of so we *could* get it perfect.

I think asking staff to stay late and work weekends is totally fine... as long as you are doing the same!

I started a post focused production co just over a year ago. I've seen steady growth and worked hard to build a solid team. My biggest challenge has been finding producers that are a good fit and compelled to work consistently. Is it because I've only worked with contractors? I pay industry standard rates and have a bonus/kickback structure. I have plenty of work. I'm getting the business side down, but taking on full time seems like a big step. Any producers / studio owners have exp here?
