OT: Working with a Millennial, probably one of your skids
Our company hired a new staff member. He's a guy in his mid 20's. I get to work with him 1 day a week, on that day we are on our own just the two of us taking care of a house full of clients. I'm senior staff and he's still in the training phase so needs some reminders and still has stuff to learn.
This past weekend he comes in to work and sits on the couch with his phone for 30 mins before doing his rounds. I reminded him that it was time to do his hourly checks. He yelled, "I KNOW!" Then I had to train him on calling a script in. Omigod, you'd think I'd just asked him for a kidney. He again yells at me, "I don't want to be trained by you. Ms. Manager** will train me on this! Youand I don't get along!" I was just like, WTF??? so I said, "Are you telling me you're refusing to be trained on your duties." he again yells "NO that's not what I"m saying," and goes on a complete tirade and is threatening to call the manager on her day off because I'm trying to train him on something he needs to know. After his little mantrum he started falling in line and did what he was supposed to with a bit of snark but sheesh! I go to work to work, not deal with manbaby sh*t.
I'll see miss manager later this week and want to address the issue with her but don't want to be a tattle tale or a trouble maker. I've never had to deal with this before except with my own kids when they talk back and are brats.
He did mention his mom had passed when he was younger and he was raised by a sm. So who's skid is this and how in the world do I deal with him?
