Cool Employees

Wondering if some of you could share your experiences with hiring employees that have worked for your competition.

Thanks

Re: Employees

I never thought I would but in this particular situation, this gal worked for the comp over two years. She worked there less than a year, and left because she did not like the atmosphere of that salon.
She is now a teacher, and is just looking for some part time work over the summer.
I have known since she starting tanning here last year that she worked for the comp. She told me right up front.

Re: Employees

The great thing is that they already know tanning and are usually partially trained. I'd be real careful on this. Honestly, she could pretty much tell you that she didn't like the atmosphere or whatever, and how would you really know if you aren't friendly with the comp? Is she telling you info about the comp? Would she tell your info?

If she talks bad about the comp, will she talk bad about you when she is no longer with you? A few pros, but COULD be alot more cons if your not careful.

My experience is that if they do it with you, they'll do it to you. I had 1 employee a while back that was terrible. Calling in, not showing up, gossiping and lazy. After I fired her, my comp picked her up right away. She didn't make it long there. I always thought they were idiots and especially since I'm sure they ate up her trash talking us, since they were that kind of salon.

Not saying this is always the case, but just be careful
