A Professional Query.

Written by sally @ 2:49 pm — Section: sally

Has anyone ever had to fire someone? I’m asking for TOTALLY NO REASON WHATSOEVER.

    I’ve had to fire several people: one yelled at me, two people cried, and one guy punched the concrete floor over and over until his knuckles bled. (This was at KB Toys, in the stockroom; at least he didn’t bloody the carpet.) For weeks I thought that he might come back and shoot me, because he had that crazy look about him. He was worthless as an employee, but now that I think about it, I was 21 and probably had no business firing anyone. I’m sure that I wouldn’t have listened to me.

    No… I have had a significant role in the firing of someone, but I didn’t have to do it. Thank god.

    Oh, yeah, I had my position eliminated due to a merger. I can tell you how not to handle a situation like that.
