What do you do with a Staff with ~1 year exp that legit won’t work. For example, you give them a simple task at 10am that should take 3 hours max, they ignore your check-in messages and then ask if they can give it you in the morning. They never ask questions. Morning comes and they still didn’t do it. When they finally do it, it is riddled with errors and clearly shows they didn’t try. Working under tight deadlines, this staff is killing me as I cannot rely on them at all. What would you do?

Bring in your manager if you haven't already, and they can bring in the partner. Ive kicked staff off my job before if they're a net negative. Would rather take the three hours to do it myself then spend 2 hours micromanaging just to get a shotty product.

1. give them detailed feedback right now about the things you expect them to do differently
2. keep detailed notes about the things you have told them and whether they improve or not
3. if their behavior does not improve make sure that their performance review reflects these comments

We had this happen, management didn’t do anything that helped therefore he stayed way too long and other people had to pick up the slack. I’d let them know it’s not going great, offer to help. Document everything if nothing improves

As an A1, this makes me feel a lot better about my own work😂

Ello fellow working class! I am curious to know if anyone has any suggestions on how to handle a coworker that has been nothing but horrendous to you and continually threatens to get me fired. It’s clear that management does not care. I can’t do what I want to do which is a solid KO, so I thought I was see if anyone has any suggestions on what I can do when I see this person in the office. Appreciate the feedback in advance!

How does that resonate for you? Have you had similar experiences?

Advice on dealing with criticism of your writing? I write, my supervisor rewrites it, then her supervisor rewrites that. By the time it gets back to me, I just want to go with what the last person came up with because it's so much better than what I wrote, and I'm so weary of the repeated exercise. The process is taking the joy out of writing and negatively affects how I feel about the writing I do outside of work for mere enjoyment.

I’m hiring for an entry level position. After HR performs a phone screen, I’m the first interview as the hiring manager. The second interview is the CFO. The third interview is with the chairman of the audit committee. I understand that this could potentially come off as intimidating for an entry level role. What are your thoughts? Is this too much? My thought is that even though the role is entry level, they should still feel comfortable communicating with senior management.
