Ready For Another Vacation


It's been about a week and a half since my vacation (which ended Sunday 9/18) and I think I'm ready for another. Last week was one of the busiest weeks of work ever. Business is going great and there is a high-demand for our products and services. The problem? I can't find enough good employees that I can send out in the field to keep up. And the biggest problem that I have with finding employees is reliability.

And I don't mean "reliability" like getting the job done, I mean that they just don't show up when scheduled. How unbelievable is that? I'll interview someone for two hours, they'll appear to be hyped-up about the position, I'll set them up for an appointment, and the customer will call me a few hours after the scheduled appointment time to ask where their technician is because he never showed up. And of course when I try to contact them, they never return my calls or emails, so I never hear from them again.

This happens more than it doesn't happen, and I can't understand why. We pay very well, so I can't see why anyone would want to lose their job after being hired by us.

And I would think that finding someone with the needed technical ability or personal skills would be the most challenging. Well that can be difficult, but the hardest part about this is finding someone that will just show up consistently and on time. So for all you prospective employees: Show up for work on time all the time and you will always have a job.. it seems there is a shortage of those types.
