We have over the years come across so many scary stories. And from scary I am referring to people. The attitude of people that want jobs, the attitude of people that want money but are not prepared to work for it, the attitude of people that dont want to go out of their way or think the world owes them.
An example - a lady is interviewed by our company recently. We refer her to a temp assingment where she is to start work. It is a short term job (6 months), no interview with the client was needed, therfore she just had to report to work and start working. Easy, how difficult could it be ? On the day she is to start work, she gets lost, she does not have a map book or a gps! We spend from 7.45am to 10am backwards and forwards on the phone trying to explain to her how to het to the company. Bearing in mind she was given full directions when being interviewed by us, she still cannot find the company in Modderfontein !! Clearly she did not listen and lost the paper with the directions and obviously took a wrong turn ! At 10am she gives up and goes home !!
My question is WHY did you not prepare beforehand ? Why did you at least not have a mapbook ? And why give up ?
We cannot get hold of her again as her cell phone is switched off ! Eventually we get hold of her at 5pm and tell her the company still wants her and can she go the next day. She says no its "too far" !! Eventhough she never found it in the first place !!
