Re: My Second Poached Employee


2 weeks done with the new guy (4 10s this week and we are all taking a 3 day weekend) and he is working out great! Fantastic work ethic, I think he would work 6 12s without complaint.

It proves it's worth giving the right person who doesn't really have construction experience a chance. He's picking it all up plenty fast, remembering and repeating things without hand-holding, and finding things to do to fill down time.

Hire for character train for skill.

You can teach skills to almost anybody,but by the time somebody is 20, it's hard to teach character.
