New Employees

We recently hires two bed cleaners. We interview about 20 applicants over 2 days and hire the two we thought were best. We also allow our managers to meet them before we hire them, and we also ask our existing bed cleaners if they have any conflicts with anyone we may hire. We also ask the applicants if they know anyone on our staff and if they would be able to work with all of them.

One thing i over looked, as it turns out the the two girls we hired are enemiers of each other. I never thought to ask them about each other. My mistake. But, now, what should I do? Both of these girls have turned in notices where they were working. I'm sure I will handle it, but looking for any advice, or similar experiences.

Re: New Employees

I would let them know that they both had better leave their personal conflicts at the door! They need to know that you expect them to behave in a professional manner. We all probably have had to work with someone at sometime that wasn't one of our favorite people, but at work you have to leave personal differences behind at times. Good luck.

Re: New Employees

No, you didn't overlook it. We all just assume the people we are hiring don't act like children. In this case, they are acting like children. Confront them both and advise them both to bury their collective hatchets. If they can't, you have enough other people who applied for the job.

Re: New Employees

If they want the money they will figure out a way to get along at work and if not then one of them will quit.

Re: New Employees

Just make sure that they don't cause a scene or argue in front of customers!

Re: New Employees

Yeah just don't schedule them together and I would tell them that this is business and work, not personal and play. And that you expect them to be mature in this matter and if they feel like they can't do that, then they need to leave now.

Re: New Employees

Oh man, I heard of this happening before. Immature people who create an unpleasant workplace. I'd fire them as soon as the slightest implication take place.

Re: New Employees

I would not try & adjust the schedule so that they aren't scheduled together because you shouldn't have to do that. I would confront them both & tell them about it & I would let them know that they must get along while at work. If they cannot handle it, then they should look elsewhere - I had this same thing happen about 2 years ago & when I sensed hostility between them, I told them both & it wasn't long before the one girl did quit.

But, never would I try & adjust the schedule - You have enough to do worry about without worrying about children bickering! Grow up or hit the road!
