So work is going to be kinda interesting for a little while, as we're working on a transition from one employee to another. The most recently hired tech put in his 1-week notice Monday, and the end is drawing very near for him to be at the shop. I can only imagine how it feels for him, because he has another job lined up with a little better pay and I think some benefits.
My primary concern, though, is training the new guy. Since November, I have been working with this guy to try and help him learn the primary job function, as well as trying to help him learn the perhiperal job functions (shop cleaning, etc.). I am pretty certain that a good portion of his leaving stems from the disagreement that it is everyone's responsibility to maintain the cleanliness and order of the shop.
So yeah... There's a help-wanted advertisement running in a couple newspapers for the remainder of this week and all of next week, so it will be interesting to see what comes of it. I'm kinda hoping that I can be a little more involved in the interview process, as I want to be able to give an honest and well-informed answer when I'm asked what I think of the interviewees. For now, though, my hours are probably going to be increased to overtime level, which means the shop is going to have to be short-handed and overworked.
Next weekend couldn't come any sooner.
