Received the CORRECT USPS shipping label. Package given to USPS on 3/31 for return to GS.
How do these worthless imbeciles pay their bills, or buy food and gas, if they're willing to quit over $5 bucks? Jesus Christ, that's insanity!I can’t rip on anyone for having crappy employees at the moment. What I have to hire just to have enough bodies to keep the doors open is sickening and I’m now paying ridiculous money for the privilege of having them work for a few months and then just not show up anymore without telling anyone.
We spent 1/2 a day trying to find an employee that didn’t show for work (contacting emergency contacts, texting and calling). Finally sent the text that we were calling the Police to do a welfare check on them - only way someone responds. They told us another employee asked to borrow $5 and they didn’t want to tell them “no” so they were quitting. They didn’t want to upset their manager so they decided to not tell us.
Again, how the hell are these people supporting themselves if they aren't interested in working?I wish that was an unusual story but it’s pretty common now. People will just take a vacation without asking and when we tell them they can’t do that, they just say they’ll get a job somewhere else.
Staff that were making 12-13/hr a few years ago are now getting 20-25 and they can get that just about anywhere. We’ll schedule 10-15 interviews a week and maybe 3-4 will actually show up (healthcare). Our only requirement is if the manager believes the candidate will show up for their first day of work. About 1/3 will accept the job, go through the background and drug test and still not show for their first day. Most of the rest will work less than a year and then not work for a few months then go work for someone else that’s as desperate as we are.
Those we used to employ/would hire have left the workforce entirely. Most decided to stay home with kids instead of paying for childcare. I can’t hold that against them but what’s left is terrible!
Since the start of 2022 my payroll is up an addition $700,000 and prior to COVID I would have never even offered a job to probably 1/2 the people currently working for me.
I signed an agreement with a staffing firm in the Philippines today. We’re going to try and move some jobs offshore in an attempt to just stay in business.
When someone complains to me about poor service all I can say is “you are right.”
