What Should I Do if I Can't Make it to Work (On Time)?

What Should I Do if I Can't Make it to Work (On Time)? | Champion Personnel | Staffing | Cleveland, OH

If you are sick, but not in the hospital...go in on time and let the supervisor send you home. SERIOUSLY. It is then obvious to your employers you shouldn’t be there and they can trust you. You make positive points, for trying. It becomes their idea, not yours.

If you are going to be late, for a good reason (or not): CALL YOUR RECRUITER FIRST, then call the worksite call-off line. The recruiter will also call and give the worksite a heads-up on your arrival time.

The worksite can schedule your workgroup accordingly, and NOT stand around wondering when to expect you (and why you are late). Not knowing when or if you are going to show up puts you into the category of unreliable...until you show up with an understandable story.

If you wake up late, miss your ride, get tangled up with family... you might think: “I’m going to be late and they will just fire me, so I’ll stay home and not call. No big deal. There are other jobs out there.”

Guess what: You now have to start all over again, if you stay home and have to look for another job. You won’t be able to collect unemployment. You get broke, fast. You put yourself BEHIND the success curve you could have been on. Keep this up for a while and you can kiss that $500,000 extra earnings goodbye.

EXAMPLE: You make a habit of being late, calling off and lose your job every 30-60 days. It takes another 30 days to get another job. Over the next two years you will earn LESS THAN 25% of someone who shows up and does good work every day. Over two years the guy who made it to work got raises,worked overtime and earned $80,000, got a permanent job with benefits and paid time off. You got paid $25,000 at best, no paid benefits or paid time off or stability. He can buy a better car and rent or buy a better place to live. You made less than minimum wage if you had worked the whole time.

You may also start losing RESPECT for yourself and begin an existence of excuses. Nothing is ever your fault. You could become a person no one can count on. Including your friends and YOURSELF.

Get Your Education, But Don't Forget This One Thing...

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates, Education

It seems that the government, school systems and employers (and media) are all stressing the need for more useful knowledge (learn a skill). Knowledge is good. But NEVER forget that being successful has more to do with your efforts and results than your book knowledge. Employers will hire a hard-working, enthusiastic person who wants to learn WAY before they will hire a person with theoretical knowledge who shows little or no desire/drive or Grit. And they will promote the hard charger years before the person with a piece of paper who shows no drive or motivation. Fact. No Bull. Motivation in action: the path to A Better Job. A Better Life. Ask us how.

Get Paid More. Get Promoted

It is actually easier today than 10 or 15 years ago. More people today miss more work, are late for work or put out just enough to get by. Employers are frustrated and are in urgent need of promotable people they can count on. Here are 4 things you can do to make more money, get promoted or get recognized as an outstanding employee. None of these will cost you a dime: Show up for work, every day, 5-10 minutes early. Be ready to work. This will absolutely be noticed by managers. Even if you are sick, show up and let your employer send you home. Calling off via phone or text leaves questions. Put out 100% of your best efforts. You are there. Might as well. Look for and ask for other things to do, if your job is stalled. You will get known as a doer, someone who can set a good example. Be attentive. Having a focus on your work will, again, get you noticed. People who get noticed for doing good things, acting like a good worker, get raises and more training, and promotions.

How to Tell the Right People Your Boss is a Jerk

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates

Tempting, isnt it? Satisfying? Could be. Do many deserve it? Yes. And no. Being a Boss or Manager is NOT easy. And most receive NO or very little training or coaching in how to be a good one. 75% of all quits today have something to do with leaving a Boss, not the company. So, when do you tell someone about a Bad Boss? After you leave? The day you leave? Weeks BEFORE you leave? Not at all? Here is what to do, if you are looking for a solution, or you want to be considered an exemplary employee (especially if you ARE going to leave, eventually, and want a good reference): 1) Make sure you are darn good at what you do, or getting there. Perhaps any negative comments from the Bad Boss have to do with your behavior or results. If your output or behavior is lacking, some of the sandpaper between you and your Bad Boss is he/she simply wearing thin about you. 2) Write down the actual incidents where the Boss is being Bad. What happened? What started it? How did it come across? Do you have
