    Well, today I supposed to meet with a guy who asked for a meeting about our upcoming job.

    Our young guy "pizza boy, happy feet" Austin is leaving for Minneapolis.

    Following the girlfriend....even has a job with the new start up company from there last year with the 4 new Butlers, 4 Zippers, CRB's, Saiger's Sauce, Tom Wands....

    They are now up to 5 Butlers and looking to add 2 more.

    Austin walking in and getting a new Butler....will be taken care of....

    So back to the guy who wanted to meet today.

    Sent him a message on Facebook I was starting my 30 minute drive to meet him....he sees it....I keep driving...

    Arrive and tell him I am at the place.....he sees it.....

    Waiting around....tell him whenever he gets here...I am here....he sees it....

    Finally "I can't meet u today"

    (Me...oh really!?)

    my reply...Ok...Maybe we can set up another day....

    Finally a reply back from him...."Ok........When I'm feeling better"


    Better to know now I guess!

    Next!

    We drag our asses out of bed unless dying to get work done....

    We are in no rush....we will find the right person....

    Make him come to you next time. If someone wants a job bad enough, they will find a way to come to where ever you are.

    Last time I hired I would have them come to me, more then half probably more like 70% didn't even show up..

    First thing I do when someone applies, is check out their Facebook page!

    We do like Keith. Some people look normal but are complete idiots on Facebook.

    No Marty I'm not talking about you. IDIOT! :biggrin:

    Ive been trying to hire for some time now. They don't show or they quit after a few weeks. The last kid worked 10 days and then never came back. A new guy started Last Thursday. Hopefully he can keep his **** together. Im getting to old for this.

    I had a guy show up for first day....we drive to a large church job.
    Working... Explaining him what to do and how.

    Sent him to get something from the truck or to do something in another room (I forgot what I asked him to do)... He took a long time.
    After a while I was wondering why.... He went to the bathroom...or so I thought.

    Wrong!

    He flat out walked off the job...on foot. (he didn't have a car, he was riding in the truck)

    Never saw him again.

    A few days later we found out, that he in fact, just walked away without saying a word.

    Best temp I ever got I hired I got from Craigslist. I had a guy not show up at the last minute so I emailed people on cl. One woman responded and turned out to be the best worker I ever had. She is now a journeyman/woman pipefitter in Alberta.

    On Zee's guy? I can top that! New guy spent all morning training and went to lunch with the crew leader. They come to a stop light and he asks to be let out, he quit. The crew leader said hey you have a Chavez shirt. He pulled it off and tossed it in the truck. :errf:

    Alot of kids were told " If you go to College you're going to make a killing".. Most just sit and wait for what they expected(to make big bucks and not work).

    Getting a job is like..
    "That's hard!" Lol

    Little do they know they are at the bottom!

    That's your problem right there. Stop making the new guys wear your old shirts. Or at least wash them first.

    You know it’s really is hard!

    My oldest daughter Erin went to a junior college studied to become RN, she got a job and got her bachelors or BSN while working.

    She’s now a travel nurse making good money working three days a week.

    My other daughter Kayla has taken all her classes to get her master and teaches special needs moderate to severe. And hopefully with in the next year she’ll get a great raise .

    But she got medical and a great retirement with the California teachers union.

    My son he worked me for five years and now he’s at Northrop Grumman working on the f35.

    The last two weeks he’s worked 60 plus hours a week, he’s got full medical and they do a 7 percent match off his check.

    He’s up to $20 an hour at 23 years old he’s got a great future at a great company.

    The moral of the story is they need to be pushed and shown what to do.

    Don’t leave it up to chance.

    All my kids were told your going it college period.


    And your working period!
