We’ve gotten a new hire today
We hired a senior programmer to replace a employee who resigned last month, it turned out he does not have the tech profile we need. We focus heavily on Java but this guy is a Web Developer according to himself. My boss request me to take care of him and I wonder how? I introduced him to our colleagues and have lunch with them together, in the mean while I tried to understand his profile because my boss didn’t invite me to the interview of this senior programmer.
He is a web developer and has a question mark on his face
It’s beyond my imagination
I have stomach ache in the afternoon because of my increased responsibility. I am not in a role with require management of staff, I am not saying I can interact with human, actually I chat with my colleague regularly about daily stuff, but I am not teaching them about programming.
If I have a choice
I would fire him because it is obviously a mistake in recruitment. It’s better to deal with it earlier than later. But I am not in the position to suggest such thing. I have reflected this issue with my boss and he would decide.
