I think I had discussed about this earlier too but the same topic comes in my mind always and my mind always wants to speak out about it all the time.. and I am sure it’s not just me.. many employers like me must be facing same issues..
These days I have been looking around for a senior level designer and PHP programmer.
The earlier designer guy left the company due to some personal reason.. I do not have any issues if someone leaves the company, everyone wants to grow in some or other way and I totally respect that but I really hate when someone behaves unprofessionally. I get the notice from the guy.. 20 days’ grace period starts.. so obviously as an employer I will expect the person to finish all the pending work and come regularly so that we don’t miss out the things..
But that thing never happens.. the person comes at 11.30 – 12.00 in the morning.. leaves office at 7 in the evening.. spends more time in personal matters and my work remains the 2nd priority. The guy also manages to bunk couple of days..
I mean.. what the fuck is this? Is it professional enough to do like this? No but people still do..
Let’s leave that example apart.. now here is the better example…
You call up hundreds of people, out of that around 10% turn up for the interview and around 10% gets selected.. i.e. only handful of guys… so, we finalize on the one guy.. the guy feels insecure seeing around 5-6 people working in the office.. so we decide to sign a contract just for the sake of it.. Okay, we sign some funny contract.. the guy is supposed to join in next 20 days.. you call the guy somewhere on 15th day.. he never picks up…. you call up again.. he never picks up.. and you start following the same routine thinking positive.. but the guy never picks up.. so, you call him up from a different number.. someone picks up and tell you that he is sick so won’t be able to talk..
Okay, so you get some kind of smile on your face.. thinking, he is REALLY not keeping well…. you call him up after 2 day.. again.. no one picks up… you call from another new number.. the guy finally picks up and assures that he will call back in 5 minutes..
But those 5 minutes never end.. and still going on.. and one fine day.. you get SMS from the guy saying, he won’t be able to join my company coz he got job somewhere else..
Now this is what I call A FUCKED UP SITUATION..
We wait for the guy for almost a month, stop interviewing the new guys and this is what you get? This kind of unprofessionalism.
I have seen many guys joining the companies and then leaving the new company within 2-3 days.. why? coz they get a better offer.. Many guys start going for the interviews within 2-3 months after joining the new company.. again, the same reason..MONEY…
I don’t understand why these kind of guys don’t have any professionalism? They have blooded signed the contract, given a word to someone and then too they switch company…
Is money so important? Or we have lost our ethics?
I am not saying this just because I have faced this kind of issue..but this issue is a general issue, happening with everyone..
There is bloody NO unemployment.. there are enough employees but there are only handful of good ones..
There should be some kind of global black list to prevent this kind of things and maintain ethics and professionalism.
