do you have any idea how many people i have seen in my office just like that guy? it makes me a little crazy. i have hired people that said they ran jobs in ny and applied as foreman and i call the refs and they aint heard of him or worse they tell me he worked there and and thats all, and i hire him and he cant install the disco. because hes never done it. or worse, he tries and its installed incorrectly and i have had guys asking their helper how to wire a four way switch the blind leading the blind. material gets log-jammed week behind schedual because he didnt know he was behind and dosent have the sense or is afraid to call me. oh man i have seen some real winners. people that cant handle the dynamics of the sub to contractor relationship oh they are ok on the install but keeping a schedual and knowing when to crack the whip.... ok im ranting sorry. i dont micro manage and i tend to let my foreman run there jobs and do their own take offs sometimes it bites me in the ass. i have run jobs for people that couldnt resist being on top of everything( always made me wonder what the hell they hired me for) and i dont do it to my guys.
i have no , no problem with people trying to make that leap from wire puller to lead guy to foreman and then to super or master - hell we all went that route in some way -- but i do have a problem with helpers thinking they can jumpstart their careers at the expense of home and buisness owners.
deeeeeeeeep breath ok. :Thumbs:
